NVIDIA and AMD GPU prices stop recovery as graphics cards start to get expensive again



NVIDIA and AMD GPU-based graphics cards will again become expensive after showing signs of improvement earlier in the quarter. The latest report from 3DCenter shows that although GPU availability has now reached sustainable levels, the main price issue is still unresolved, and graphics cards are showing an upward trend in pricing.

NVIDIA’s price recovery stops as GPU prices start to rise again, AMD graphics cards also become expensive

It was at the beginning of the second quarter when both AMD and NVIDIA saw their biggest recovery in terms of GPU supply and then the prices of their current generation graphics cards. Since then, both AMD and NVIDIA have retained around 50 to 60 percent of MSRPs, which is still far from the original price tags, but not as bad as the 2x-3x mark-ups that store owners and retailers asked for only a quarter of Earlier.

The GPU market has been trying to recover ever since the recent cryptocurrency boom and the COVID-19 restrictions that have hampered the industry, but that recovery is beginning to stop, as reported by 3DCenter in the latest statistics. Compared to the beginning of August, NVIDIA graphics cards are now 59% expensive (compared to 50%) while AMD graphics cards are 64% expensive (compared to 59%). This is a small increase, but it breaks the downward trend of NVIDIA and is the largest price increase since May 2021.

It is also reported that although decent availability is maintained throughout this month, the graphics cards based on NVIDIA and AMD GPUs are still short. Some SKUs such as Radeon RX 6800, Radeon RX 6800 XT, Radeon RX 6600 XT, GeForce RTX 3070 Ti and RTX 3090 are difficult to find. The AMD Radeon RX 6800 (Non-XT) is almost as if it no longer exists since it is the hardest card to find right now. The Big Navi RX 6800 series also has the highest mark-ups with prices 95% above MSRP.

Over at NVIDIA’s front, flagship cards such as the RTX 3090 and RTX 3080 Ti are below 30% more than the MSRP, but the situation is getting worse with the RTX 3080, RTX 3070, RTX 3060, all of which are around 70% marking range. The following is NVIDIA’s price crash.

Now, based on recent reports, it is likely that COVID-19 restrictions may once again result in limited graphics card production based on NVIDIA and AMD GPUs, which could hamper the recovery rate. Common graphics cards such as the GeForce RTX 3060 series and Radeon RX 6600 XT can be severely affected by this. Furthermore, it is expected that TSMC will increase the prices of 7 nm chips, which is what the RDNA 2 graphics cards are made of.

A price increase of 10% for the 7nm node can further increase the prices of AMD’s graphics cards that depend on TSMC for the production of GPUs. NVIDIA, on the other hand, is dependent on Samsung’s 8nm node and which has given the edge over AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 series since Samsung, unlike TSMC, has not packed the 7nm production to full capacity with various orders from AMD and other chipmakers.

Despite this, demand for NVIDIA’s graphics cards is increasing, and the GeForce RTX 30 series is the most profitable series in terms of cryptocurrency at the moment. The LHR may have saved the original stock of playing cards from falling into the hands of the miners, but the recent NBMiner update makes it seem as if they will not be stored for long. No matter how many graphics cards AIB can produce, the demand for gaming graphics cards is very high, and with crypto-mining that is not reduced, several analysts and NVIDIA’s CEO, Jensen, believe that supply barriers will persist even in 2022.
