The price decline of current graphics card models goes to the next round. Slowly, but certainly the cards of AMD and Nvidia approach the EIA – after just under one and a half years. PC players can now breathe, because the big graphics card crisis seems to be over.
NVIDIA and AMD graphics cards are always cheaper
For PC players there was nothing to laugh in the last few months. Who was looking for a new gaming PC, usually handle the finished calculator, as the prices for graphics cards shot up to the height.
Now, however, there is hope again. Anyone who has thrown a look at the price development of current graphics cards from AMD & NVIDIA within the last few weeks is likely to have made great eyes – because selling prices are continuing to go into the basement :
Since the turn of the year, the graphics cards of AMD and Nvidia are becoming ever cheaper. At the beginning of January, sales prices on the free market were still under 80 percent above the EIA – the maps on average are only distributed around 35 to 40 percent above the official price recommendation of the manufacturer (Source: 3DCenter).
What makes this difference shows a look at the prices of RTX 3070. At the end of 2021, the potent GPU was traded on average for 1,100 euros, but is now for a little less than 800 euros (at MindFactory ).

Cheap graphics cards benefit especially
While the high-end graphics cards are still still well above the official UVP, seem to slow down prices for low-end and mid-range models – that is likely to be pleased, especially beginners.
The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 , which is suitable for playing in Full-HD, is now available for just over 340 euros (at MindFactory). Although this is still just under 70 euros above the EIA, it is a real bargain compared to the prices of the last weeks. Who wants to dust a still cheaper model, attacks at RX 6500 XT from AMD, which is not exactly future-proof due to the strongly limiting video memory. For this, AMD’s entry-level GPU is currently only about 219 euros (watching for Proshop) – offers a reasonably priced transitional solution.

However, we advise all the PC players to wait for something – there is something else! Well possible that the prices fall even further in the coming weeks and we soon finally reach the EIA level. We press the thumb.
