Average graphics card prices continue to drop

Over the past few weeks, graphics card prices have dropped significantly, not only returning to the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) but possibly even lower. The situation in the graphics card market has changed dramatically due to the collapse of cryptocurrencies and the fact that there is still a large inventory of current graphics cards. With a new generation of graphics cards just around the corner, graphics card deals also appear to have dropped.

The latest graphics card price trends compiled by 3DCenter show that the average price of the AMD Radeon RX 6000 series is 14% below the MSRP, and the average price of the AMD Radeon RX 6000 series is 9% below the MSRP, both of which are the lowest point since launch. In general, a large drop in average price means a more pronounced impact on high-end models, with the Radeon RX 6900XT/RX 6950XT and GeForce RTX 3090 Ti/RTX 3090/RTX 3080 Ti both performing similarly.

In addition to falling prices, the current supply of graphics cards is also quite sufficient.

A little bit, there are still individual models whose prices are still slightly higher than the MSRP, mainly focusing on NVIDIA’s mainstream graphics cards, including GeForce RTX 3060/RTX 3060 Ti/RTX 3070. Some people speculate that the reason is that the update of Nvidia’s next-generation graphics cards will start from high-end models, and mainstream models will not start to be updated until next year, lacking incentives for price reductions.

3DCenter says this should be the last update on AMD Radeon RX 6000 series and AMD Radeon RX 6000 series average prices. The original purpose of the report was to count graphics cards above the official suggested retail price, but as prices have fallen and supply has stabilized, this type of report is not needed for the time being.
