We may see the latest and best equipped machines being packed into the bargaining bin. In fact, every retailer seems to be selling every RTX 3070, RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 they get, which means they don’t have to try to use Nvidia’s latest technology to attract customers. The same is true for AMD’s Ryzen 5000 processor, and the same is true for the Radeon RX 6000 graphics card.
The shortage of new hardware has two effects on the pre-built system market. The first is that it has never been so busy, so if you really want a cutting-edge system, if you want anything for Christmas (assuming it is not too late). If you really want something like RTX 3080 Ti, this may still be the fastest way to get it.
System manufacturers such as iBuypower also have their own pre-built systems that can launch stores faster than custom designs.These iBuypower RDY system It can be with you in a few days, while other machines may take weeks or even months.
Second, what may be more interesting for anyone who wants to bargain on Black Friday gaming PCs is that the previous generation machines were not as attractive as before. At least not for the same money. However, all these previous-generation kits have not just miraculously disappeared, retailers and system manufacturers need to sell it to make some money back.
The thing is, if the price is right, there is absolutely no problem with machines built around Zen 2, Intel’s 10th generation CPU and Nvidia RTX 2080. If you bought such a machine six months ago, you will enjoy some excellent gaming experience, and it will not change with the release of new hardware. Don’t be put off because these machines basically don’t use the latest and best hardware. There are still some very good machines.
As always, when looking for bargains, focus on what you need, and don’t shake off bargains because they are cheap.
