A few weeks ago we told you that in the United States they were preparing to expand a tax The price of graphics cards in the country can increase by up to 25%. The tax is currently active as a tariff for products manufactured and imported from China, but some products such as graphics cards were exempted from payment till December 31 this year.
Luckily for consumers in the North American country, the Office of the US Trade Representative Extends this duty exemption for graphics cards and other hardware components for 9 more monthsSo at least until September 2023 it seems that 25% price hike will not have to be implemented for GPU in the country.
It will be necessary to see what happens in 9 months, as the review process for these tariffs is usually done periodically, in consultation with the parties involved. A 25% increase in price, already inflated, that in the new generation of graphics, would make an RTX 4090 like the MSI Supreme X that we analyzed cost more from 2,299 euros to more than 2,870 euros.
While an AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX will increase its price from 1,159 euros to around 1,450 euros.
