It’s no longer a secret to anyone, the price of graphics cards is crazy but a gradual decline has been taking place for several months. Explanations of changing trends.
Between the global pandemic and the exuberant demand from miners, graphics cards have had major breakage issues for the past 2 years. This has resulted in rising prices, sometimes with dizzying sums. Both from Nvidia and AMD.
Are graphics cards dropping in price?
But this trend is slowly starting to reverse. In fact, the site 3DCenter monthly analysis of the prices charged on the graphics card market. And the most recent finding is that prices are coming down. Thus the prices of the GeForce RTX 30 and the Radeon RX 6000 are currently 25% higher than the recommended price. Against 87% in December 2021.
If this trend continues, prices should return to normal in May this year. But let’s not cry victory too quickly. Because with the rise in COVID cases in China and the current closure policy in this country, things can still change.
We are still on a nice curve and we really hope that this year will be the right one to finally be able to change your equipment in a decent way without too much extra cost.
