While the chip shortage has touched everything from appliances to cars, one segment of tech that’s seen the most challenges is graphics cards. The latest GPUs have been getting bought up and resold by price gougers since the beginning of the pandemic, but now, after signs began looking up in 2022, we’re getting the occasional deal.
Today sees the Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3070 drop to $599.99 at Amazon and Best Buy. This is a $130 discount off its regular price of $729.99 and is the lowest we’ve seen thus far for this model. Now, that is still a little pricier than the base $499.99 Nvidia RTX 3070, but it’s common for manufacturers like Gigabyte to build off Nvidia’s reference design and enhance the specs — like this card’s Windforce triple-fan cooling system, higher clock speed, and extra HDMI port.
The 3070 line is perfect for 1440p gaming, and supports Nvidia’s DLSS upscaling and ray tracing for improved reflections. It’s also a bit more budget-friendly on both your wallet and your power supply, when compared to the 3080s of the world. Read our review.
