Graphics cards on their way to become ‘affordable’

According to the latest price analysis by 3DCenter, graphics cards might be on their path to reach MSRP in the coming months. 

Some high-end graphics cards received a price reduction as high as 100 EUR since the last price report (3 weeks ago). Meticulously collected data from Austrian and German retailer shows that GPUs are now cheaper than they were in January 2021, partially due to the recent changes to the dollar/euro value.

Ever since 3DCenter began collecting GPU pricing data, the newest (Radeon RX 6000 series) graphics cards from AMD have not been cheaper. Now retailing at an average of 35% above the MSRP as recorded on March 6th. Some SKUs are indeed still much more expensive than they should be, for instance Radeon RX 6800 going for an average price of 63% over MSRP. However, entry-level SKU such as RX 6500 is now priced at just 8% over AMD’s suggested retail price.

NVIDIA RTX 30 GPUs mark their lowest price since August 8th when they briefly reached 48% price above MSRP. Currently, they are listed on average at 41% over MSRP, with some SKUs still going for over 55% over MSRP (RTX 3060 Ti/RTX 3080 10GB). At the same time, one can find NVIDIA’s slowest Ampere model at ‘just’ 29% over MSRP.

The GPU pricing is still not as good as everyone would have hoped it to be in 2022, however with a continuous trend downwards, one could expect graphics cards at proposed retail price even before the next-gen shows up (so around the fourth quarter).
