Chinese Spring Festival is just around the corner, and I bet some of you would consider updating your PC hardware with the yearly bonus coming. If you do, you may go for it soon. New rumors indicate that Intel’s 200-series motherboards and Pascal GPUs would get price hikes in China.
Fudzilla reports that Asus, MSI and Gigabyte is planning to raise retail prices by about 5% for their motherboards and graphics cards in China beginning in early February. The price increase is said to come from the increasing costs of CPUs, hard drives and PCBs, as well as a lowering in value of the Chinese yuan.
Meanwhile, the global motherboard sales is expected to drop by 10% in 2017 due to weakened demand from Chinese customers.
