The Chinese video card market is increasingly important for miners in other countries and notably for gamers who have for a long time complained about the high costs for video cards in Nvidia, thanks to the rigorous measures taken by local regulators.
In reality, prices for video cards have begun to thaw due to worldwide mining limitations in the country. As a result, some models have decreased their price in Chinese online equipment retailers by more than 50 percent of their initial costs.
In essence, we are talking about Nvidia’s reference RTX 3000 range video cards, although the ‘price cut’ affected other partner company-produced versions, too. By ASUS, for instance.
The cost of video cards has decreased since a prohibition has been introduced on the production of industrial-scale cryptocurrency in the Sichuan Province, according to local publishing houses. At the time, only viable mining centers remained in the country’s major regions. The latter should, however, be closed on 25 June.
Now the buyer is to pay four hundred and sixty-seventy-nine yuan, or 730 dollars, for the ASUS RTX 3060. On the other hand, Nvidia Quadro P1000’s price has fallen from more than 3,000 yuan or 470 dollars a month before 2429 yuan or $380.
If you’re a gamer, a miners, or just a tired man looking for a video card at a suitable price list on a local site, it’s time to find it on Chinese websites! Unfortunately, the cost of shipping remains to be remembered.
