The prices of graphics cards continue to drop even though Ethereum has remained more or less stable ($2,900-3,500). Data compiled by 3DCenter shows that GPU prices (in Europe) are now just 12-19% over MSRP on average. This falls in line with what we’ve been reporting over the past week. Two of AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 GPUs and NVIDIA’s RTX 3080 Ti are priced at or very close to their MSRPs.
The situation is similar in the US market. AMD’s Radeon RX 6600 has even dropped below its MSRP of $329 while the 6600 XT is priced at just $10 over its MSRP on Newegg.
As for the top-end Radeon RX 6900 XT, multiple variants are going for the MSRP of $999 over at Newegg.
Things are less rosy on NVIDIA’s end. The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is the only SKU priced at the MSRP on Newegg.
In stark contrast to the RDNA 2 flagship, the RTX 3090 is priced at $179 over its $1,500 price tag.
The other noteworthy mentions are the RTX 3060, RTX 3060 Ti, and the RTX 3070 Ti selling for $409, $499, and $699 on Microcenter. You’re more likely to find GPUs at good prices at offline stores due to the lower inflow of consumers compared to online platforms like Amazon and Newegg.
