After the transition of Ethereum to the Proof-of-Stake algorithm, the video card market collapsed around the world: new devices fell in price and, to a greater extent, used ones. Prices have declined in different countries in different ways, one of the most revealing pictures, if we talk about the secondary market, in China.

The new reality in the Celestial Empire is something like this. Zotac RTX 3070 with three fans is asking for the equivalent of $270, Gainward RTX 3060 Ti can be bought for $215, GeForce RTX 2070 from different manufacturers (Gigabyte, MSI, Zotac) are offered for $150. There are a lot of used GeForce RTX 2060s (including Super) from various manufacturers at prices ranging from $145 to $120. Having worked hard after mining (or gaming, but who will tell the truth?), the GeForce GTX 1660 and GTX 1650 are offered for about $ 90, but the Radeon RX 590, RX 580, RX 470 are sold almost by weight – for $ 25-40 for piece.

Despite the fact that most video cards on the secondary market have fallen in price, not everyone is ready to buy them. According to the results of the survey, which was attended by 278 people, more than half – 51.1% – do not plan to buy a used video card. 20.5% of those surveyed plan to make such a purchase, 14.7% of those surveyed have already bought a used video card.

The overpriced GeForce RTX 4080 could drop in price in a week or two. At this time, the Radeon RX 7900 XTX is just coming out.

The overpriced GeForce RTX 4080 could drop in price in

The GeForce RTX 4090 and RTX 4080 video cards have officially fallen in price today, but only in Europe and by only 5% against the backdrop of a strengthening euro. However, at least the RTX 4080 could drop in price much more in the near future.

The overpriced GeForce RTX 4080 could drop in price in a week or two.  At this time, the Radeon RX 7900 XTX is just coming out.

According to various Chinese sources, including those cited by WCCF Tech, the RTX 4080 could drop in price as early as mid-December. And the reason, at first glance, is as simple as possible – the release of the Radeon RX 7900 cards. Recall that even the top-end RX 7900 XTX will cost only $ 1,000 versus $ 1,200 that they ask for the RTX 4080. However, at least one source says that Nvidia will allegedly reduce the price of the card not for a better fight against AMD’s new products, but for our own reasons to improve the price-quality ratio.

Be that as it may, this is still a positive thing for gamers who would like to buy the RTX 4080.

It’s also worth noting that if the RTX 4080’s MSRP goes down, that could mean the RTX 4070 Ti will also come out with a lower price tag than it was previously quoted, which, remember, was $900.

Test results for the Radeon RX 7900 XTX have appeared on the Web, apparently already with a normal driver.

In recent tests, the Radeon RX 7900 XTX struggles with the GeForce RTX 4080 with varying degrees of success

Today we have already seen results in Geekbench’s OpenCL and Vulkan tests, and they were lower than those of the RX 6900 XT. The new results are much higher.

In the Vulkan test, the novelty is gaining almost 180,000 points, and in OpenCL the result is more than 228,000 points.

As you can see, this is much more than the RX 6950 XT. In the Vulkan test, AMD’s new product confidently outperforms the more expensive GeForce RTX 4080, but in the OpenCL test it lags behind the latter, only slightly ahead of the RTX 3090 Ti. In both cases, the RTX 4090 is far ahead.

Of course, Geekbench is far from the best option for testing video cards, but at least now we see that the new AMD flagship is indeed much faster than the old one.
