The price in Taiwan is NT$7,000 worse than in the US

Compared with the improvement in specifications, netizens complained more about the price of the RTX 40 series, and posted a post saying “How dare you ask for such a high price for the 4080 of Lao Huang?”. Many netizens questioned why “Old Huang” dared to offer such a high price despite the subsidence of the mining tide and the economic downturn after the merger of Ethereum.

Note: When Nvidia launched the RTX 3080 (10 GB) in 2020, it was priced at $699, but with the mining boom, the second-hand market price has been continuously raised due to shortages, and once soared to 7 times the original price.

Netizens believe that “Old Yellow” is open higher, or because they want to stagger the price of the original RTX 30 series to avoid price competition; there are also remarks mocking: AMD, the current biggest competitor, is “not good enough” and does not dare to sell 50,000 CPUs.

In addition, after the keynote speech of Nvidia Taiwan, the official website also marked the price of two new products in NT dollars: the RTX 4090 starts from NT$56,990, the 16GB version of the RTX 4080 starts from NT$42,990, and the 12GB version starts from NT$42,990. From $31,990. Converted at the current exchange rate (about 1 US dollar: 31.38 Taiwan dollars), the official US price of the RTX 4090 is NT$50,177, in other words, the price difference is close to 7,000 yuan.

However, there are also netizens who “defend” Nvidia, pointing out that the United States will collect consumption tax, and compared with other regions, Taiwan is the cheapest price after the United States.
