Price Of AMD & Nvidia GPUs Is Falling At An Incredible Rate!

TECH NEWS – With the next generation of GPUs approaching, AMD and Nvidia hardware prices have fallen by 57% since the beginning of 2022, according to a report.



If you were hoping to get AMD or Nvidia GPUs for cheaper, there might finally be a reason to rejoice. As graphics card prices continue to fall, seemingly brought on by the recent crypto-mining crash, gamers and PC enthusiasts can sigh relief as products become cheaper and sometimes even below MSRP (or recommended retail selling price). In fact, prices have fallen quite significantly since the beginning of the year.

According to a recent report by Tom’s Hardware, AMD and Nvidia prices have fallen by an average of 57% since January and have fallen by 14% since last month.

It seems that potential buyers now have the opportunity to purchase high-end hardware such as an RTX 3090 Ti or an RX 6900 XT below the recommended retail prices – some up to 30% below MSRP! Data from sites such as eBay shows that most modern graphics cards are now selling for less than their retail value.

It was also recently reported that demand for GPUs is falling overall, probably due to a return to some semblance of normality since the pandemic. With the worldwide shutdowns lifted, people have returned to work and/or are not stuck at home, which probably means fewer people have been looking for PC technology such as graphics cards and CPUs.

According to Tom’s Hardware, the average price on eBay fell from $736 in May to $614 in June, a 17% drop but also an indication that some mining cards may soon be hitting the second-hand market.

On top of all this, we can expect the next generation of cards.

With Nvidia likely to launch the Ada Lovelace this September and AMD not far behind with the possible October release of RDNA 3, there is plenty to play for from both companies as the technology enters a new era.

Of course, there are also the industry newcomers, but with Intel struggling with the global rollout of the Arc desktop GPU, there doesn’t seem to be much to worry about for Nvidia and AMD in the blue team. However, things are starting to look a lot better given the prices of current technology, and, assuming people don’t mind shopping on sites like eBay, there are significantly more opportunities to get a modern graphics card for less than MSRP.
