Yesterday, both AMD and Nvidia found that the stock shortages for their video cards will continue for a while. The stock status is still not tender either, according to our product comparison. Now it appears that EVGA and Zotac are increasing the prices of their graphics cards, for several reasons.
The Verge was the first to find out that the prices of various GeForce RTX 3000 video cards from EVGA and Zotac have increased since late last year. EVGA’s RTX 3070 XC3 Ultra Gaming has risen from $ 560 to $ 630 at Central Computers, the same brand’s RTX 3080 XC3 Black Gaming from $ 730 to $ 800.
The price increases of Zotac cards would be wider. Sold this brand through its own webshop for $ 440 the RTX 3060 Ti Twin Edge. The RTX 3070 Twin Edge OC would have cost $ 550. These cards are now on sale for 530 and 640 dollars respectively.

For the RTX 3070 XC3 from EVGA, the price has increased slightly for web shops affiliated with Hardware Info, but otherwise the prices seem to be fairly stable here. Unfortunately for us, the stock is still lousy, so there is little to say about the prices.
EVGA declares openly on its website that it has increased the prices of RTX 3000 products. There would be ‘various causes for this’, although it is not clear exactly what the reasons are. The new prices took effect on January 11th.
EVGA: Due to ongoing events, EVGA has made price adjustments on the GeForce RTX 30 Series products. This change was necessary due to several factors and will be effective January 11, 2021. EVGA has worked to reduce and minimize these costs as much as possible. For those who are currently in the EVGA.com Notify Queue system or Step-Up Queue, EVGA will honor the original MSRP pricing through April 16th, 2021 if your purchase position is processed before this date.
The Verge previously wrote about new import tariffs that apply to the United States, it is not clear how big the impact of the new regulations will be on prices. Notebookcheck has one very complete list know how to make prices of different web shops (abroad). Only the prices of EVGA and Zotac cards are listed, video cards from other brands do not seem to be affected yet.
