NVIDIA GeForce India has silently opened up an online storefront on their regional official website. Moreover, the company’s website is offering products like GPUs at lower prices compared to OEMs viz Zotac, Asus etc. However, it is interesting to note that not all products are available for online purchase.
The store also has listings of Titan Graphics Cards, Geforce GTX, and Jetson Developer Kits with add to cart option. The IT distributor Rashi Peripherals Pvt Ltd is fulfilling the products and services sold via the online store. Currently, you have to make online payments for orders since cash on delivery is not available. Citrus Pay is the payment processor and you can use credit or debit cards and net banking.
The importance of this NVIDIA store comes when you consider the recent price hike of OEM GPUs due to the bitcoin boom. NVIDIA says that they cannot check or control the prices offered by their partners in India. They also mentioned that the average price of GPUs hasn’t gone up due to the demand of GTX 1030 and 1050 by non-bitcoin miners. We also noticed that even the GTX 1060 and 1070 variants were cheaper by around Rs 10,000 on Nvidia store.
Since Nvidia hasn’t made any official announcement about the cheaper listing in their store, the internet is saying that this is some of the stock dumps. We couldn’t agree more as the new Volta microarchitecture is already here. However, we also noticed that the stocks of GPUs were randomly going out of stock.
This demand shows that the price offered by Nvidia official store is still a bang for the buck. So if you are not worried about the two-year-old Pascal variants, you can grab those 10 series right now. But, if you are willing to invest more, the Titan V based on Volta is also available. Enough with the chit-chat, go check out the Nvidia Geforce Store yourselves. Hope the article was informative, Peace!
