These prices have not yet been transferred to other countries and it is not known whether they are merely a temporary measure. At least we have already begun to see the first great advantages offered to consumers when there is more competition in the market, because this way the big dominant brands lower their prices. Other rumors suggest that NVIDIA will also lower the price of its graphics cards, and will announce this measure next February 28, where the presentation of the NVIDIA GTX 1080 Ti will take place.
