Video card prices are (slightly) going up again

German tech site 3DCenter posted a new update about the pricing and availability of video cards. The site exclusively focuses on the German and Austrian markets, but it's still an interesting indicator for the health of the GPU market.

Basically, there's good and bad news. The good news is that the availability of cards is better than earlier this year, but they're still in short supply of course. Some SKUs are particularly hard to find, so the good news is rather limited here. The bad news is that prices are no longer going down. In fact, they're getting slightly higher.

AMD cards are on now selling for 164% of the MSRP on average, while NVIDIA cards cost 159% more than the MSRP.

Yesterday, we wrote about a rumor that supply of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 and RTX 3060 Ti cards is about to get worse as we head into September. According to market sources, COVID-19 outbreaks at manufacturing plants are to blame for reduced supply.
