It seems that the price drop on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 and AMD Radeon RX 6000 GPUs has hit a wall. In the recent statistics report from 3DCenter, it can be seen that graphics cards from both vendors are no longer falling, and instead of going back to normal MSRPs, they are still 50% above that.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 and AMD Radeon RX 6000 GPUs Still 50% more expensive compared to MSRP, availability gets a little better
Price trends for today’s generation NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 and AMD Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards began in late May after both vendors witnessed up to 3X price increases relative to MSRP. The crash of cryptocurrencies and increased production of GPUs helped reduce GPU prices and bring things back to normal, but it seems that we may have come in hard since the graphics cards have not declined this month.

👉 The party is over, price reductions hit full brake.
👉 The availability is the same or slightly better.
👉 Without any remarkable movement, it is difficult to predict when retail prices will come close to the MSRP. Https://t.co/x8VWKEZIEr pic.twitter.com/xIuOcYEDzS

According to the data, the prices of NVIDIA GPU decreased by 3% and are currently at 50% above MSRP while AMD GPU prices saw a 3% increase and are now at 56% above MSRP. 3DCenter also reports that they have seen the same or slightly better availability of graphics cards, mainly NVIDIA variants and the lower-level AMD offerings.
It is difficult to say what next month will bring, but there are currently no known indicators that can once again push GPU prices up. NVIDIA has been increasing production of its Ampere GeForce RTX 30 GPUs since the end of Q1 2021, and AMD is doing the same, so it’s very hard to believe that prices will see a surge again.
Of course there are a few regions where prices do not see a decline even months later, and this is primarily due to retailers and distributors who set up their own prices to make a profit at the last minute, but I can confirm from my own side that ‘LHR NVIDIA’s series have made a dent in overall prices in various markets, as still operational cryptocurrency layouts are unable to use them, and gamers are reluctant to buy graphics cards at such high prices that retailers are ultimately cutting prices significantly.

|Note: the best and worst (available) retailer prices were stated|
When it comes to graphics cards, the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT and Radeon RX 6900 XT seem to have the best available so far, while the Radeon RX 6800 is followed by the RX 6800 XT as the worst in terms of overall availability. NVIDIA GPUs, on the other hand, are available in good quantities, but the RTX 3060 Ti is an exception with poor worldwide coverage. This is also mainly due to the fact that it is the most affordable and latest of the non-LHR offers in the market.
