Graphics card prices have been on the rise since July

On average, in September, an RTX 3000 trades for 170% of its MSRP, a Radeon RX 6000 for 174% of its MSRP.

For several months, 3DCenter has been scrutinizing the evolution of the price of graphics cards in Germany and Austria. Previous observations had shown a sharp inflection in prices between May and July. Unfortunately, as the diagram below shows, prices have been on the rise again for a few weeks. On the other hand, the relative additional cost is almost identical whether it is an AMD or NVIDIA solution.

According to 3DCenter readings, average prices for AMD graphics cards as of September 19 are 74% higher than MSRP; those of NVIDIA cards 70% higher. In both cases, therefore, the cards always sell for significantly more than their recommended retail price. Above all, the trend has been bullish since early July for AMD GPUs, since early August for NVIDIA GPUs. Unsurprisingly, these fluctuations are quite clearly modeled on the supply of GPUs.

All affected models

As you will see in the table below, these inflated prices concern both the mid-range and the high-end. The author of the article cites the example of AMD’s Radeon RX 6600 XT launched last August at a recommended price of 379 euros: “One notable point in the graphics card market in September 2021 is the end of the attempt to keep the Radeon RX 6600 XT near $ 500 – the card is currently trending towards $ 600 and could end there quickly. This means that even this reference, with its already high list price, suffered a price increase of at least 45% ”.

Indeed, at a retailer like LDLC, the price range for this reference is between 499 and 699 euros, and most models are negotiated between 550 and 600 euros. In any case, there is hardly any stock.
