It seems the lower teir 4000 series are not selling great. Reviews for basically every card, Nvidia and AMD, have been pretty poor tbh, mostly based on value.
Nvidia and AMD now pre-scalp the price for your convenience but seem to have forgotten they need a desirable product or a genuine fear of supply at the same time.
My 2.5 year old 6800XT that cost £680 on launch day back has done the classic AMD 'fine wine' thing and today keeps up with the 4070, mostly, and is certainly faster than the 4060ti. FSR2 becoming more popular has certainly helped level the playing field even if I'm not really into upscaling.
Meanwhile I bought an Arc A380 which can, just about, play every game on low settings. The drivers keep it improving except for the current blip where the drivers just give a black screen on older motherboards.
