NVIDIA & AMD main GPUs (RX6800 Series, GeForce RTX 3080/3070/3060Ti) finally under MSRP
3DCenter published a new GPU pricing chart now focusing on specific GPUs.
Graphics card prices have been rapidly going down for the last 3 months and have reached MSRP (Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price) already, but only when all cards are considered. Pricing falling to MSRP level is not the case for each GPU model, though, such as the core portfolio from 2020 (bar the flagship models). Such list includes Radeon RX 6800XT and RX 6800 from AMD and NVIDIA RTX 3060 Ti, RTX 3070 and RTX 3080 10 GB SKUs.
NVIDIA and retailers were not so eager to lower the prices on these cards because their official MSRPs were introduced before the pandemic and cryptoboom took effect, rendering those official prices an elusive dream. The fact that both AMD and NVIDIA are to replace their flagship models soon does not help here either. We might need to wait or high-end and mid-range updates a bit more.
3DCenter now reports that the pricing for this core lineup has finally dropped under MSRP (97% to be exact) for the SKUs mentioned above. However, this pricing is still a bit higher than the whole series combined for each brand, as the new graph shows:
AMD Radeon RX 6800XT is now selling for 759 EUR, while RX 6800 can be found for 639 EUR. Importantly, those prices are still technically higher than MSRP, but only due to poor EUR/USD exchange rates, which have been accounted for in this list.

The pace at which ‘core 2022’ GPUs prices decline is slower than for most cards, especially the flagship cards and low-end models. The former are to be replaced soon, while the low-end models will lose their value just as quickly as new architectures are announced.
