Pricing hit a peak in May and has gradually decreased over the past couple of weeks -- with availability getting better too. But now it looks like the party is over, at least in the German and Austrian market. New figures from 3DCenter show prices are no longer dropping, since the start of the month average best retail price of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 series and AMD Radeon RX 6000 series video cards has remained largely stable. The price of AMD-based cards went up 3 percent, while the price of NVIDIA-based cards fell by the same percentage. On the bright side, availability is still the same or perhaps even slightly better.
Prices vary per region. It's unknown when we can once again expect video cards to be available at MSRP. At the moment, video cards are still exchanging hands for about 50 percent more than the MSRP in Germany and Austria.
