After stringent supply reductions from vendors, the graphics card inventory is mostly back to normal. While you’ll still come across higher-end parts going for healthy discounts, most midrange and entry-level offerings are going a bit over their MSRPs. This applies to both the GeForce RTX 30 and the Radeon RX 6000 series families across major retailers, including Amazon, Newegg, and BestBuy.
A peek at Newegg shows a complex pricing paradigm. Starting from the bottom, we have the GeForce RTX 3060 and 3060 Ti going for $20 to $50 over their MSRPs. The RTX 3070 and 3070 Ti are priced almost exactly at their sticker prices, and so is the RTX 3080. The RTX 3080 Ti is discounted to $899, down from its $1,199 launch price. The RTX 3090 and 3090 Ti are mostly out of stock, and the few variants available are overpriced.
On the Radeon side of things, the numbers are lower. The Radeon RX 6900 XT and 6800 XT are mostly out of stock, while the cheaper options, such as the RX 6700 XT, are discounted by $100. The RX 6800 and the 6×50 XTs are well-below their sticker prices with ample stocks, making them your ideal options for a last-gen buy.
