GPU prices have continued to drop since the Ethereum crash last year. Market prices have dipped well below the MSRPs for the first time this cycle. According to a report from 3DCenter, NVIDIA’s RTX 30 series “Ampere” graphics cards are cheaper by 9% while AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 “RDNA 2” GPUs are discounted by 14% on average. Keep in mind that this is the aggregate of GPU prices across the German market, and doesn’t represent global market figures.
Moving over to Newegg US, the Radeon RX 6900 XT is now down to just $748.99, a decline of $251 from its launch price of $999, or 25%.
