According to the data collected by 3DCenter, what all gamers have been waiting for has finally happened. NVIDIA and AMD GPU prices have returned to normal and we are now back to MSRP. Even in some places, the cards can be found with values below the MSRP.
The downward trend in prices has continued for several months now in several international markets.
Recently, we reported that AMD Radeon RX 6000 GPUs are priced just 5% above the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP). The news is positive for the hardware market, but there is no way to say that the changes in the international market will be reflected in GPU prices in Argentina. Surely we will reach the same prices, but not as fast as in the US or Europe, probably in one or two months.
In any case, the data collected by 3DCenter shows that the prices of the AMD Radeon RX 6000 and the Nvidia Geforce RTX 30 are steadily decreasing: while the prices of the Geforce RTX 30 models are around 2% above MSRP in US dollars and euros (€), the Radeon RX 6000 can be found between 6% and 8% below MSRP in the international market.
In the chart above, we can see how GPU prices are in free fall. While the value was still over 80% of the MSRP in December 2021, it has dropped by more than 80% in just 6 months.
In AMD’s case, the Radeon RX 6500 XT is priced 23% below MSRP in Europe.
The arrival of the next generation of GPUs from AMD and Nvidia should also help fuel the market. We could see price cuts on RX 6000 and RTX 30 series models, which could be a good opportunity to upgrade.
It seems that the market will adapt to a new reality and leave behind the sad days of absurdly high prices due to pandemic complications and component shortages.
