It was just a matter of time until manufacturers and retailers came together to offer real deals on graphics cards. Today, there are two RTX 3070 Ti pixels pushers available for purchase at Newegg with a discount of $100.

With GPU inventory increasing, we’ve gotten from a point where no matter how much the cost was for your GPU, the card would be taken by zealous gamers. A reseller who is looking to sell additional fees on eBay. Retailers and manufacturers are competing for our dollars so that they’ve never had to in a long time, prices are going down, and discounts are getting more frequent.

A case in point is an overclocked pair of RTX 3070 Ti cards made by MSI and Gigabyte. The Gaming OC RTX Gigabyte 3070 Ti, priced at $700, is a slightly more expensive option, based on my experience. It’s got a little more overclock and a slightly less slender profile, judging by its look. However, the MSI Ventus RTX 3070 Ti costs $750 and is slightly overclocked over the standard 1,770 MHz boost speed.

Our test of the RTX3070 Ti in Founders Edition trim found it to be among the most sought-after cards in the market. But not in a good way. The complete GA104 GPU it runs has a greater core count than the RTX 3070, which is below it, which renders it a host device, paired with the fact that it was operating with the same cooler as the more sluggish RTX 3070 Founders Edition and was the same amount of heat when it was in usage.

The two Gigabyte and MSI GPUs However, you’ll get the triple fan designs they have developed, which should be able to handle the heat produced by this massive piece of silicon graphics and also keep it cool while playing.

This RTX 3070 Ti is the card that was released to ensure Nvidia maintained a good advantage over that of the Radeon RX 6800, which places it in between its counterpart, the Radeon RX 6800 XT, in terms of gaming performance. When we talk about the superior AMD card, there’s a Sapphire Pulse RX 6800XT available for purchase for $840 currently, which is also a bargain.

It’s worth noting that, even though these two Nvidia graphics cards appear to be priced at a discount, they are far above the MSRP for the RX 3070T. When it first came out, Nvidia called it a card that cost $599, and the two models from Gigabyte and MSI are their less expensive models.

We’re not even close to MSRP; however, even in normal times, a third-party upgraded version of any particular graphics card may reach $150 above the MSRP regardless. This is a great sign and not a bad bargain too..
