GPU prices now at same level as in FebruraryWhile GPU prices are still elevated, things have definitely improved over the past couple of weeks. More gamers have been able to buy video cards and prices are coming down. German tech site 3D Center compiled a chart that shows the retail price trend of NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 30 and AMD's Radeon RX 6000 series. The chart is based on the respective best prices at major German retailers.
After months of higher street prices for video cards, pricing finally hit a peak in May. Since that month, prices of both AMD and NVIDIA video cards have come down a lot. At the moment, you can expect to pay about 53 percent more than the MSRP in Germany. Definitely not great, but a lot better than paying double or triple.
More importantly, though, there is a new stock of RTX 3060 Ti and the Radeon RX 6800 series now available, which wasn’t the case for quite a long time. A return to normal pricing may still take many weeks, as retailers and distributors will be reluctant to adjust prices to limit their loss on increased margins.
VideoCardz reports a similar decline isn't visible yet in the US, at least not at the big retailers.
