There was a point in time in which enthusiasts thought they’d never see prices of graphics cards come anywhere near MSRP ever again, but the latest data from 3DCenter.org, a publication that has been diligently tracking the pricing of AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards at major German retailers, indicates a solid trend toward sensible pricing.

As shown in 3D Center’s latest price trend graph for the week ending February 13, average pricing for both NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series and AMD Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics cards have been dipping steadily since mid-December, with GeForce and Radeon GPUs now sitting at 57% and 45% above their MSRPs, respectively.

While those percentages aren’t too exciting, it’s worth noting that pricing for NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards have not been this cheap since August, nor have AMD Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics cards, which haven’t seen these sorts of prices since January last year.
