Most Nvidia GPUs Are Now Available At MSRP In The UK

GPU mining has seen a massive decrease in popularity in recent months, thanks in part to a rapid decline in profitability, driven by a reduction in the price of Bitcoin and difficulty spikes when mining most altcoins (alternative cryptocurrencies).

This drop in mining profitability has ultimately led to decreased GPU demand, causing prices for most graphics cards to decline in recent weeks, especially in the Geforce camp.

When conducting our usual price checks on hardware, we found that most of Nvidia’s GTX 10 series of Pascal GPUs are now available at their MSRP pricing. While this data is specific to our local UK market, we can now see GPUs ranging from the GTX 1060 6GB to the GTX 1080 Ti shipping at Nvidia’s MSRP pricing at retailers or close to it.

Below we have included a table of Nvidia’s 10-series of Pascal GPUs, the pricing of the cheapest model at Overclockers UK and their pricing on Nvidia’s online store. We have also noted whether or not each of these GPUs is currently available from Nvidia directly. We have linked to both versions.

(Most of Nvidia’s high-end 10-series is available at or below Founders Edition prices)

Right now only two models are available at prices that are notably higher than Nvidia’s Founders Editions at retailers, the GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 Ti, though when looking at Overclockers UK’s cheapest models the difference is only £10, with Nvidia UK offering no availability on their website.

For now, the mining craze seems to be winding down, bringing a little normality back into the GPU market, though pricing for Radeon graphics cards remains high, particularly for RX Vega series graphics cards.
