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

2

The arrival of new generations of graphics cards and the lack of interest in cryptocurrency mining leads to a decrease in the price of GPUs, which in the end would almost become reasonable.

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

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

Why such a decline? What can we expect?

The price drop can be explained in several ways. Firstly, the demand has dropped drastically, whether due to lack of interest in cryptocurrency mining – the prices themselves have 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 game from Nvidia collapsed in the wake of a much lower sales volume than before.

Another factor, because the stocks of the two manufacturers and retailers are too high, logically shows 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 before the end of August. At the same time, and still aiming to sell 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 12GB of vRAM, while she had been arrested two months ago.

The race is therefore on to prepare for the arrival of RTX 40s and RX 7000s, and it 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 show up for several months anyway, and certain models are expected only at the beginning of 2023, according to certain rumors. So be patient…
