Asus Infinity campaign offers up to $300 off Ampere GPUs

Asus has launched a new price promotion, which will take place by the end of June. The Asus Infinity Campaign (opens in a new tab) offers discounts on a wide range of Asus-branded PC components and peripherals. The most obvious omissions from the PC-related price-cutting frenzy are its pre-built laptops and desktop systems. The biggest price cuts we’ve spotted in the Infinity campaign are on graphics cards, with up to $300 off, but that’s understandable as these are the most expensive components Asus makes. Additionally, the downward spiral in GPU prices has been looming for the past few months.

A wide range of components and peripherals are on sale for the new Asus Infinity campaign. Price reductions apply to motherboards, monitors, routers, gaming peripherals, graphics cards and power supplies.

Looking at the graphics card deals first, you can see that Asus has made some deep cuts. The only cards featured in this sale event are models based on the high-end GeForce RTX 3090, RX 3080 Ti, and RTX 3080. Some of the deals look attractive due to the discounted prices of up to $300, but they were quite steep prices – a feature pushed by Nvidia with the Ampere generation.

These price drops may be welcome if you’re currently looking for a high-end RTX 30 GPU, and you can’t wait until late summer to see what Ada Lovelace/RTX 40 will deliver. The discounted cards are from the ROG Strix and TUF Gaming families. Asus is selling these GPUs at a discount through its eShop in the US and through several partners, including online favorites like Best Buy, Amazon, and Newegg.

Asus Infinity campaign motherboards are mostly previous generation Intel boards, so it’s easy to see why they’re discounted – up to $100 off. Here, a single AMD B550 motherboard with $20 off is small consolation.

There are nearly 20 Asus monitors on sale, ranging from a 16-inch laptop to a 43-inch ROG Swift model bristling with gaming features and tech. Asus’ latitude for discounts doesn’t seem that great here, the best deal being $100 on the aforementioned 43-inch gaming monitor, bringing the price down to $999.

Asus’ Infinity campaign also offers plenty of discounts on routers, price reductions on a few peripherals (mice, keyboards), and some good – and not so good – deals on ROG Strix power supplies. Unfortunately, the worst PSU deals aren’t discounts during the promotion, so we’re not sure why Asus listed them in the first place.

Finally, we noticed an unwelcome disconnect between the campaign text regarding the promotional period and the offers listed. For example, Asus talks about the Infinity campaign covering “special promotions through Memorial Day and Father’s Day” through the end of June on the campaign’s homepage. However, many of the product price promotions listed appear to be ending in late May or around the end of May.

We hope Asus will update their sale inventory lists during the promotional period. The addition of more accessible consumer GPUs and more current generation motherboards would be particularly welcome. In the meantime, if you’re looking for a well-priced GPU from Asus or other brands, along with some AMD Radeon picks, it’s also worth checking out our regularly updated Best GPU Deals feature.
