AMD Radeon and GeForce graphics cards on their way to reach MSRP

3DCenter shares their latest April price trend report for the current-gen Radeon RX 6000 and GeForce RTX 30 series. 

This report has thus far been the most accurate representation of the GPU market based on price data from German and Austrian retailers. It is also the longest running analysis of this type, which started around the same time the prices have skyrocketed in January last year.

The prices have successively been going down since start of this year, from nearly 80% over MSRP to just 12-19% right now. It means that the current-gen graphics cards have not been this cheap in 16 months. Each report is usually posted every three weeks, and each report has shown double-digit percent point change. What this means is that with the next report we might finally see graphics card at MSRP.

According to the data, the availability of current-gen GPU has never been this good. This is likely because customers already anticipate below-MSRP pricing at this point, just months away from the launch of next generation GPUs. Neither AMD nor NVIDIA have announced price-cuts yet, and both companies are reluctant to boost the sales with game bundles, which was typically the case at this point for previous generations.

GPU manufacturers are now expected to introduce next-gen GPUs in 5 to 6 months. AMD is also set to introduce an updated RDNA2 RX 6x50XT series in May. With the current prices successively going down at this pace, there is a very good chance the next report will already show various models at MSRP.
