Online retailer Newegg is trying to clear its shelves of gaming hardware right now, likely in anticipation of next-gen components arriving in the next few months. It’s been a while since any site has offered deep discounts on once-hard-to-find gear. This includes GPUs, gaming monitors, motherboards, AIO CPU coolers, etc. We don’t have any affiliate links here – just a general report of some great deals.
The sale is part of a “bonanza” event the company kicked off a week ago. Newegg says that since the first round went so well, he’s now adding more gear to the pile. It even has a name: Bonanza Sale Refueled, and it only includes hardware designed for gaming. It’s unclear how long the offers will be available.
The only information from Newegg is that you should buy now, of course. “Shop Newegg’s Bonanza Sale today before these deals disappear,” the website reads. However, the company also announced that it would be offering the lowest prices on components all summer. In a press release, he said, “This summer, Newegg will have some of the lowest prices for gaming PC components on the market. We do this with our customers in mind. Whether they do this for customers or just to clear out their “old” inventory is a long-standing debate.
Naturally, the severity of discounts varies a bit. At the low end, it might be a measly seven or eight percent, which is nothing out of the ordinary. However, two items are over 40% off; a motherboard and a 48″ 4K OLED gaming TV. It’s normally $1,499, now on sale for just $799. The motherboard in question is a Gigabyte Z590 ATX board, which is currently 42% off. The funny thing is that there are also several GPUs that are sold at MSRP. As you probably know, that wasn’t happening. So for those they aren’t for sale per se, just ungouged, finally.
All in all, it’s just more proof that the PC component market is back to normal now. It’s been several long years in the wasteland for PC updates, and the long nightmare is finally over. This seems related to the recent cryptocurrency bloodbaths, because the second it was no longer profitable to mine coins, people started trying to unload their GPUs. It looks like a simple case of supply now exceeding demand, resulting in lower prices across the board.
