Is this about a silver stripping on the graphics card horizon? A look at the price development of the last weeks shows that the coveted hardware of AMD & Nvidia is finally cheaper. Is the hardware nightmare soon over?
Current graphics cards are 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 by AMD & NVIDIA within the last few weeks is likely to have made an exciting discovery – because slowly but safe seem to reduce sales prices :
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 nearly 80 percent above the EIA – the cards on average are only distributed around 50 percent above the official retail price of the manufacturer (Source: 3DCenter).
What makes this difference shows a look at the prices of a popular RTX 3070 from Asus. The Asus Tuf RTX3070 V2 was still traded at the end of 2021 for just under 1,140 euros, but is now for a little less than 900 euros in the official shop (look at ASUS).

Cheap graphics cards: beginners come at their expense
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 already available for around 370 euros. Although this is still almost 90 euros above the EIA, but 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. But AMD’s entry-level GPU is currently only about 240 euros – offers a reasonably priced transitional solution.
