Video card prices going up again

German tech site 3DCenter updated its AMD and NVIDIA GPU retail price trend tracker and it's not good news. While prices are still down significantly versus the peak seen around May 2021, they've been increasing again for several months now. Availability is getting worse and this is resulting in higher prices. In Germany and Austria, the price of Ampere and RDNA2-based video cards is now about 8 percent higher than in August 2021.

VideoCardz reports AMD's Radeon RX 6600 XT is now inching closer towards the 600EUR mark, far higher than the official MSRP of 379EUR. The site also writes that NVIDIA is not even mentioning the GeForce RTX 3050 to its AIB partners anymore so it seems that model won't make it to the market.
A noticeable point in the graphics card market in September 2021 is the end of the attempt to keep the Radeon RX 6600 XT close to 500 euros – the card is currently tending towards 600 euros and could end up there quickly if availability continues. This means that even the Radeon RX 6600 XT, with its already high list price, now also has a price exaggeration of at least + 45%. — 3DCenter
