A week ago, Asus warned that its graphics cards and motherboards were about to receive significant price hikes due to â€œincreases in cost for components, operating costs, and logistical activities plus a continuation of import tariffs.â€� Now, other GPU makers are following Asus's leadâ€”one overtly, and the other quietly.
Like Asus, EVGA isnâ€™t hiding the fact that itâ€™s increasing prices on its popular graphics cards.
â€œDue 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,â€� a notice at the top of EVGAâ€™s graphics card landing page reads. â€œFor those who are currently in the EVGA.com Notify Queue system or Step-Up Queue, EVGA will honor the original MSRP pricing through April 16, 2021, if your purchase position is processed before this date.â€�
