Nvidia graphics card prices slowly drop in Europe, while AMD GPU prices increase

Written by Neil Soutter on Tue, Aug 10, 2021 4:32 PM

The recent issues with the PC hardware market have seen inflated prices for both graphics cards and processors alike. However, recent trends have shown GPU prices to be dropping across Europe as availability has increased significantly as well as a drop in demand for cryptocurrency mining.

Since the last report, it seems that Nvidia graphics cards have further dropped in price, whereas AMD GPUs have increased in price. The difference is only slight at the moment, and AMD’s issues can be down to limited supply still, though that will apparently improve over the next quarters.

The new report comes from German site 3DCenter who have been tracking the prices of graphics cards in Germany since the start of the year when prices started to increase. This is nowhere representative of GPU prices across the globe, but they certainly are signs of improvement in pricing and availability.

As you can see, Nvidia and AMD graphics cards are still prices above MSRP, but nowhere near the massive 200-300% spike back in May. Currently, it seems that Nvidia GPUs are on average 44% above MSRP, whereas AMD GPUs are 59% above MSRP.

The trend then expects Nvidia graphics cards to return to MSRP by the end of the year, though this can obviously take a bit longer as retailers don’t want to lose out too quickly on their increased profit margins from the inflated prices. AMD graphics cards are likely to follow soon after as supply improves.

What do you think? Do you reckon Nvidia GPU prices will return to MSRP by the end of the year? Or will it take longer? And what about AMD graphics cards? What is pricing and availability in your region like now compared to a few months ago? Let us know!

Just checked Scan here in the UK and 3090s seem to go for £1850-2500 (that's 2550-3450 freedom dollars), which is insane. 3080Tis are also well above what the 3090 MSRP was. Then we have some 3060s and 3060Tis available, but also ridiculous prices (£650 / $900 for a 3060Ti LOL!). Nothing else is available on Nvidia's side.


Not bad for a bit of plastic and sand...

In lithuania they definitely got better, it went from -3500€ for 3090 to around 2-2.5k€ still far from ideal but not completely bonkers like it was before. Amd has been promising "plenty of stock and close to msrp" for their 6600xt cant wait if its actually true.

All they have to do is print 5 more cards than previously and keep the price 5 bucks lower to fulfill the promise. I wouldn't hold much hope there LMAO.

In the netherlands you can buy any gpu you want now for half the price they were when at the peak of the crisis. Still waiting for them to drop to a 1000 euros and if that doesnt happen before December then ill just wait for the new gpus. That or my GTX 1080 dies suddenly then ill jus splurge on the card i want regardless of how expensive it is.

Well the 3060 around here costs around 600 to 750€, while the Ti is in the 780 to 1000€ range . . . no wait, i just found a regular 3060 for 1000€, and yes, this is from online stores. The 3080 starts from 1300€ and so does the 6800XT. So in terms of these prices, the perfomance increses are definitely worth it . . . in percentages . . . ha ha. But jokes aside prices here have been immovable. If stores can keep the prices high they will. That's how "nice" the business is around here.

Cheapest rx 6800 xt goes for 1164€ vs rtx 3080 for 1350€ in estonia. Even with owning a gsync panel this would be a easy choice if i had to make it.

AMD should first fix their MSRPs then worry about supply and demand. Same with Nvidia for some of their GPUs.

Even if amd and nvidia set msrp for all their gpus to 1$, it would still cost the same for end user. Only when they would fix their supply(tho thats another can of worms) then you could complain about msrp. Currently msrp means jack s#it.

My point is that even at MSRP AMD's cards are rip-offs and most of Nvidia's are too.

Their profit margins speak differently.

If profit margins are all that matters, maybe build and grow everything yourself? When you own your own business, you might start looking at it differently, especially if you do manufacturing of anything like my missis does.

I wouldnt be surprised if nvidias production of rtx 3080 to rx 6800xt would be like 10:1 in favor of nvidia. No one even cares to sell the rx 6000 on local "person to person" sales sites even with a small market this seems to be a trend.

Well Nvidia is using Samsung's 8nm which isn't being used by some of the biggest companies out there.
TSMC's 7nm is used by AMD(for consoles, custom devices, desktop, laptop and server CPUs and GPUs), Apple, IBM, Qualcomm, Hi-Silicon, Broadcom, Intel and Mediatek.

according to hardware unboxed and their contact with amd, apparently new 6600xt will have plenty of stock and price will be close to msrp. I think i heard that one before We will see about that.
