The price of Nvidia and AMD graphics cards continues to fall, the right time to buy?

2

The approach of new generations of graphics cards and the lack of interest in cryptocurrency mining lead to a drop in the price of GPUs, which would eventually almost become reasonable.

How the pricing table works

Gone are the days when finding a graphics card at the MSRP (Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price) was a minor miracle. For two years, the strong demand for GPUs – linked to both confined gamers and cryptocurrency miners – has had an excessive impact on GPU stocks and prices, in a climate of shortage made worse by the Covid crisis. A long ordeal for players who need to renew their PC to enjoy the latest games, which is finally coming to an end.

For just a few weeks, it has indeed been possible to get your hands on a GeForce RTX 30 from Nvidia or a Radeon RX 6000 from AMD without breaking the bank, some models having even seen their price drop below the MSRP. Unfortunately, this is especially the case for high-end GPUs such as the RTX 3080 or even the 3090 Ti: for example, the latter can be found at €1,600 while its MSRP is €2,250. It looks like the US is enjoying a bigger price drop, with better deals in recent weeks, but the repercussions on the French market should soon be felt.

Why such a drop? What can we expect?

The drop in prices can be explained in several ways. First, demand has dropped drastically, whether due to a lack of interest in cryptocurrency mining – the prices themselves having plummeted – the release from confinement, more or less complete equipment for some of the players or the arrival in the fall of new generations of GPUs. As proof, the income from the gaming from Nvidia collapsed in the wake of a much lower volume of sales than before.

Another factor, the stocks of the two manufacturers and resellers being too high, they logically display more attractive prices. Some sources even claim that the two manufacturers will take new measures to further reduce prices in order to get rid of their reservations by the end of August. At the same time, and still with a view to selling its GA102 chips (the GPUs embedded in the 3080, 3090 and their Ti counterparts), Nvidia has even decided to relaunch production of its RTX 3080s with 12 GB of vRAM while she had been arrested two months ago.

The race is therefore on to prepare for the arrival of the RTX 40 and RX 7000, and this should finally benefit consumers. Those who would like to renew their PC configuration can therefore wait a few more weeks, unless they come across an interesting promotion. The new generations should not point the tip of their nose anyway for several months, certain models not being expected until the beginning of 2023, according to certain rumours. So be patient…
