A new EVGA NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 restock was spotted online at just $64.80 markup from its original SRP!
For quite a while, there hasn't been a cheaper price for this GPU along with most of the popular NVIDIA RTX 3000 series. The big question is, could scalper prices be improving?
EVGA NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Restock
To answer this question, just recently, another EVGA NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 restock has just been spotted online, selling for $70 past its SRP.
Although this might not seem like quite a difference from the current $64.80, the fact is, the price has still gone down and become more affordable.
Scalpers have been pulling prices to over twice the GPUs original value, but as of the moment, an online restock tracker was able to spot a NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 selling for just $64.80 past its SRP.
It is also not a coincidence that both GPUs were EVGA GPUs.
As of the moment, due to the prices spotted online, it seems like EVGA prices are marked up less compared to their competition.
EVGA NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti
Previously, another EVGA NVIDIA GPU was spotted selling for a decent markup price.
While other brands like ZOTAC and others might charge higher on GPUs, EVGA priced a NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti restock for just $200 past its SRP. For most GPUs of this model, the price could go up to twice its original SRP at $1,399.99.
Gamers have been facing three factors that have driven the prices of the GPUs through the roof.
First and foremost, the inevitable global chip shortage has caused a scarcity in the market for parts to make the GPU. This, in turn, has resulted in less supply with the demand still very much alive.

The second problem is the obvious scalpers purchasing massive quantities of CPUs through the use of bots and selling them at higher prices.
Although scalpers have been long in existence, the situation has become a little bit more difficult as of the moment due to the scarce supply of GPUs.
The third problem, as of the moment, is the rise of cryptominers making their own crypto mining rigs that require massive hash rates in order to turn a profit. These hash rates can only be accomplished when the rig uses high powered GPUs. This is something that the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3000 series supplies.
Scalper Prices Drop from $70 to $64.80
Due to this reason, the RTX 3000 series have become a coveted bunch of GPUs in the market. The original SRP for the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 is at $329 as seen on the official NVIDIA site itself.
This is also the first time that the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 price has jumped from $399 to a more affordable $393.80.
For fans that want to purchase more affordable GPUs, another option would be to purchase a gaming laptop with a built in GPU.
