The 3DCenter portal has published new statistics on the prices of graphics accelerators Radeon RX 6000 and GeForce RTX 3000. Prices of graphics cards have not yet reached their recommended values, but things are moving in the right direction – the prices are still the declared prices closer manufacturer.
Overall, graphics card prices are down about 5 percentage points from April. For example, the premium for the Radeon RX 6000 models is now an average of 7%, up from 12% last month, and the premium for the GeForce RTX 3000 models has dropped from 19% to 14%.
Although many entry-level and mid-range accelerator models are sold at up to a 10% premium over the recommended price, many high-end models are, on average, 22% more expensive than the recommended price. Demand for these cards is now high as many potential buyers put off buying when most graphics cards were unavailable or offered for twice or even more in price.
As always, the current 3DCenter report reflects the price dynamics only in the graphics card market in Germany and Austria. In other countries, the cost of accelerators can vary significantly.
