NVIDIA Sends Press Release that GPUs Are Mostly at MSRP

By Published May 09, 2018 at 12:18 pm

It really says something about the state of the industry when you’re getting press releases about two-year-old product availability. NVidia just sent one of those out about their GTX 1080s and down – 1080 Tis are still impossible to find at reasonable prices – attempting to notify gamers that cards are back in stock. At this point, we certainly appreciate those press releases, at this point.

NVidia wants everyone to know that their GTX 1080, 1070 Ti, 1070, 1060 6GB, and “1060” 3GB are all back in stock close to MSRP. We’ll see how long they last, but we figured it’d be worth sharing the list with you all. A lot of our viewers and readers have been unable to build new systems due to GPU prices, after all.

Prices are still in constant flux, even over the last 30 minutes of writing this up. Availability is also questionable – we’ll see if they stay in stock more than a day this time.


Under $600 MSRP

GTX 1080

Under $500 MSRP

GTX 1070 Ti

GTX 1070

Prices on GTX 1070s are hit and miss. A few are closer to $470, while others fall to $450 after rebates or discount codes. The most recent MSRP update dictated $450, but GPU prices have obviously been in flux since then. Below is a list that are more affordable than others.

Under $300 MSRP

GTX 1060 6GB

Prices on these are still a little rough, and tend to be closer to $300 on average. We’d like to see these drop $50 still.

GTX “1060” 3GB

Note that these prices are still in constant flux. Just in the time since we started writing the article, a few of the units moved around in price (hence our lack of specificity on the individual products – you’ll just have to click and see what it is at the time you visit).

Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"

First world problems, Steve. First world problems.
