In the Chinese market, there has been a trend towards cheaper graphics cards of the Radeon RX 7900 XT series. Recently, the average price of these AMD models fell by 19%, from 7399 yuan to 5999 yuan. This applies to both Chinese domestic manufacturers (Yeston) and global brands (XFX, Sapphire and others). If we take the Yeston Radeon RX 7900 XT models, then their new price of 5499 yuan is equivalent to 790 US dollars. At the same time, the recommended price of a video card for the American market is $899!
At the same time, there is a slight price drop for the Radeon RX 7900 XTX. The price tag of the older model has dropped from 7399 yuan to 5999 yuan on average. Not without price cuts for Nvidia graphics cards. The top GeForce RTX 4090 dropped from 12,999 yuan to 12,149 yuan, the GeForce RTX 4080 dropped from 9,499 yuan to 8,049 yuan, and the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti is already available at 5,839 yuan instead of 6,499 yuan (which is also less than the recommended price). China is the main consumer and producer of video cards, so the local market is the first to react to price changes. And if such a decline began in the Chinese market, it will gradually reach other regions.
The news is positive. But taking into account stocks, we should not expect a revision of prices from local sellers in the coming weeks.
