3DCenter.org has shared the latest pricing trends for NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series and AMD Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics cards in the German market. Unfortunately, it’s another round of disappointment for enthusiasts who are still clinging to the dream of GPUs being obtainable at MSRP in the near future.
The latest chart shows that Ampere and RDNA 2 products have both been steadily increasing in price since August 29. Pricing for NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 30 Series has risen by 11 percent, while pricing for AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 Series has risen similarly by 10 percent.
From 3DCenter.org’s report:
Wrong direction! Compared to the level of three weeks ago at the end of August, both price and availability levels have again developed slightly negative within September. This now clearly affects both graphics chip developers with almost the entire product portfolio. Exceptions to this rule only have a moderate mitigating effect on the average price exaggeration of + 74% (AMD) and + 70% (nVidia). Since, above all, the availability has decreased again (not on a large scale, but a certain bit everywhere), it doesn’t look much like a possible trend reversal at the moment – rather the fear of further increasing graphics card prices in the near future has to be expressed.
3DCenter also pointed out that availability of NVIDIA and AMD’s flagship graphics cards, the Radeon RX 6900 XT and GeForce RTX 3090, appear to be shrinking. This is despite their already absurd premiums, which are set to get even crazier due to their decreasing availability.
