AMD Radeon RX 6000 prices are dropping

The latest Newegg GPU price report from HardwareUnboxed confirms AMD Radeon RX 6000 are indeed cheaper than NVIDIA RTX 30 series. 

MSRP (Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price) is slowly becoming a norm, says HardwareUnboxed who have just published their latest report based on the current pricing from one of the largest US retailers, Newegg. While both brands see a similar price change over a single month time (6 to 8% decrease), AMD’s offer is now almost at MSRP level.

The average price for Radeon RX 6000 cards is now 5% over MSRP, with some cards now even retailing under MSRP (RX 6900XT/6600XT/6500XT), However, the RX 6800 series are still listed for up to 31% higher price (RX 6800). Interestingly, if it wasn’t for the RX 6800 model, the average price inflation would be just 2.4% for the whole series, 0.1% if RX 6800XT wasn’t included either.

Although the monthly prices for GeForce RTX 30 cards have dropped as well, by 6% on average, the MSRP for NVIDIA cards is still 24% higher for the entire stack. As noted yesterday, NVIDIA clearly has a problem with mid-tier to low-end GPUs. The rapidly declining price for GPUs is now forcing NVIDIA to launch a new model called GTX 1630.

One should expect NVIDIA to change its tactic soon, something that would have an immediate effect on the pricing. This is especially important considering GeForce RTX 40 series are just 2 months away, assuming that the rumors are true.
