Just popped over to Newegg.com today to compare prices on 1060 6GB cards…and was shocked to discover prices seem to have gone UP over the past few months. WTF? Disregarding the garbage from Zotac, the lowest price reliable brand (PNY and EVGA) cards are $250, with the majority of 6GB 1060 cards residing in the $270+ range. MSI in particular must have discontinued their line of 1060’s or something, because Newegg only has third party sellers pushing MSI cards at ridiculous $450+ price points.
90 days ago there were reliable 1060 6GB cards selling for $230 or so after reabtes, including a couple of the MSI cards. I’d hoped to see that drop to just over $200 by January, but I guess not. What did I miss? Are the 1050ti cards keeping the prices on the 1060’s artificially inflated? Is there a supply issue? Why does there not seem to be a good 4GB+ card right around $200? It’s all either 4GB 1050Ti’s for $160 or 6GB 1060’s for $250+.
