Newegg’s Sales Event Offers GPUs at Closer to Normal MSRP Pricing

If you’ve been waiting to buy a PC graphics card at more normal pricing, then check out Newegg’s latest promotion. 

On Tuesday, the retailer kicked off a Bonanza(Opens in a new window) sales event, which is offering discounts across many desktop graphics cards(Opens in a new window) from both AMD and Nvidia. In some cases, the GPUs approach the original suggested retail pricing for the products.

In addition, Newegg is offering discounts on motherboards and PC monitors, including a huge one on Gigabyte’s 48-inch OLED display, which is going for only $800. 

Newegg is launching the event to encourage PC building and upgrading when the GPU market previously saw hugely inflated costs due to limited supplies. “Customers have been asking for discounts on gaming PC upgrades for a while, so we decided now to offer GPUs, motherboards and monitors at deep savings,” said Newegg CEO Anthony Chow in a statement. 

”We lowered prices to help and reward customers who have been dreaming of building a new gaming PC or upgrading their PC this summer. Now is a great time to install new gaming PC components,” he added. 

The sales event will last until June 30th. But whether it’s really a great time to buy a graphics card is harder to say. It’s true the GPU shortage seems to be mostly over, at a time when cryptocurrency mining demand has fallen. The problem is that both Nvidia and AMD are expected to announce next-generation GPUs only a few months from now, probably around September.
