The latest AMD Radeon RX 6000 and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 graphics card price report has been published by 3DCenter which shows continuous improvement in GPU prices and some cards are even showing prices below their MSRP.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 and AMD Radeon RX 6000 graphics card prices continue to improve, and more GPUs are available below MSRP
In the latest report from 3DCenter, we can see that GPU prices for NVIDIA GeForce and AMD Radeon graphics cards continue to drop, which should come as no surprise as this is the trend we’ve been seeing since the end of 2021. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30-series prices are now averaging around 6% off MSRP, while AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 series are averaging 2% off MSRP .
On top of that, GPU supply is plentiful and currently there is no retail outlet in the world that doesn’t have graphics cards on its shelves (which it didn’t a few quarters ago). The red and green teams also announced various promos such as the ‘Restocked and recharged‘ by NVIDIA and AMD as well announcing how its Radeon RX 6000 series cards are available at MSRP-level prices.

Let’s talk about AMD pricing first, again almost all Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards are now available between +1 and +10% of MSRP. Only Radeon RX 6800 series cards still sell for an average of 20-35% off MSRP. This has been the case with these cards since launch and one of the reasons is that the RX 6800 Non-XT has been quietly discontinued while the 6800 XT is still in short supply with AMD focusing on RX 6950 XT graphics cards and 6900 high-end. . Meanwhile, the RX 6500 XT is available at a price 19% below MSRP, while the RX 6700 series can now be purchased at MSRP.

The NVIDIA lineup averages prices around +6% off MSRP, but it’s only three cards at the moment, the RTX 3050, RTX 3060 Ti, and RTX 3070, which are priced above + 12% off MSRP. The RTX 3080 Ti Enthusiast actually sits below MSRP, which is impressive considering it offers similar performance to the RTX 3090 Ti which costs several hundred dollars more. It’s the RTX 3060 Ti that’s still selling for more than 20% off MSRP, but that could be due to high demand.

We recently saw the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT selling for US$100 below its MSRP at United States. Only a few cards are currently in demand and it would still take a few months to hit their MSRP numbers, but the vast majority of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 and AMD Radeon RX 6000 lineup are currently being sold at normal prices.
This, along with pricing now returning to or below MSRP, means the GPU market is out of the worst and pricing/availability can now return to normal. However at the same time I’m not as happy with the price update as I should be just because we’re entering a new generation of graphics cards later this year and by then most existing graphics cards would have benefited from discounts and price cuts, but this has not been the case this generation due to inflation in the GPU market. We can only hope that we will never see such a scenario again, because it is the best for consumers around the world. That said, a major GPU price crash could be looming around the corner, more about it here.
