The NVIDIA RTX 4080 is starting to show up at more reasonable rates. However, those reductions confined to specific stores and countries are not part of the official offering but rather a result of US Dollar conversion rates.
We just revealed a week ago that the UK is now offering RTX 4080 for £100 less than its recommended retail price (MSRP).
Cowcotland has reported today that they have found RTX 4080 selling for less than the manufacturer’s suggested retail price. While the UK offering is substantial, the French LDLC’s offer of a €50 reduction off the revised MSRP for Europe (€1,399) is not as impressive.
However, this is not the first RTX 4080 on the market for less than its original MSRP in Europe. For the recently announced RTX 4080 GamingPro from Palit, which is currently marketed in Germany, we can easily discover the same price. Both cards are now unquestionably cheaper than they were just a few days ago, but such a minor drop cannot be deemed a price cut.
For the past two months, the US Dollar/EUR exchange rate has been slowly declining. This directly affects the price of imported items such as RTX 40 GPUs. If this trend continues, NVIDIA may be obliged to lower the price of their graphics cards even further, but this will have no effect on US customers.
