The price of graphics cards stopped falling and rebounded. GPU supply shortage will continue
Previously, 3DCenter collected price data from major retailers in Europe (mainly Germany), showing that after entering the third quarter, the graphics card prices of AMD and Nvidia have loosened and declined. The decline is mainly concentrated on Nvidia GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards, which are also more pronounced than AMD’s graphics cards. There are many reasons for this, including the gradual listing of graphics cards equipped with Nvidia GeForce RTX 30 LHR series, Nvidia and AMD have increased their supply, and the popularity of cryptocurrencies has decreased, etc.
The latest data from 3DCenter shows that after entering August, although the supply has been guaranteed, the price is still high, and there are signs of rising, ending the downward trend since May. Consumers are now more likely to buy graphics cards than in previous months, but they still encounter shortages from time to time, and the shortage of some models of graphics cards is still more serious, such as AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT/RX 6800 XT/RX 6800, and Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 Ti and RTX 3090. The most serious is the Radeon RX 6800, which is almost non-existent. At present, the average price of Nvidia GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards is 159% of the official suggested retail price, and the average price of AMD Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards is 164% of the official suggested retail price.
The price trend of graphics cards in the next few months is not optimistic. Earlier, the industry had early warnings. In view of the re-spread of the coronavirus epidemic, it is likely to eventually affect production and then supply. In addition, the price increases of major supply chain manufacturers have also increased the price of graphics cards. For example, TSMC will increase the price of chip production. Previously, Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang said that the supply shortage will continue in 2022.
