Nvidia and AMD GPU Prices Continued to Plummet in April

Graphics card prices took a June dip, according to 3D Center Germany’s roundup of the latest deals. During this time, Nvidia graphics Cards sunk by 6% in price – whereas AMD GPUs declined by an average of 13%. According to the graph below, it is instantly apparent that there was a huge drop across the board for both leading manufacturers.

 

In April, it looks like the price curve for Nvidia graphics cards is leveling off. According to the source site, this might be an indication that “the period of fast price reductions has come to an end.” Statistics show that supply and demand cycles can often follow a curve with pronounced steps or gaps added in between as opposed to being smooth line graphs (again, depending on many factors).

A new report from 3D Center indicates that at the end of March both Nvidia and AMD GPUs were selling for around 25% more than their MSRPs. This is an interesting finding because it appears there may be enough demand in the market place to justify increasing prices on these higher end graphics cards. In a similar vein, it’s interesting that markets that have been undersupplied are still on the high-end side of things. As per usual, nobody can say with certainty why this could be. This year Nvidia seems to be 19% above MSRP overall and AMD 12%. But that doesn’t mean there is no market for all of them. So the prices change, but that does not undermine the fact that this market’s demand will go on increasing.

In the study the source site, which is German, includes statistics that involve a large number of businesses based in Germany. Their target market is ecommerce websites similar to Amazon and eBay. Because this report considers these on a broad scale, it appears that there are numerous opportunities for businesses looking to sell or purchase products containing graphics cards in Germany.

Another important point to consider with regards to this German study is that it does not include any 3090 Ti GPUs at all. When Nvidia released and made these halo products available for purchase at MSRP, supplies were readily available of the RTX 3080 which is a noteworthy thing. Furthermore, the RTX 3080 does not have an MSRP because the major feature it has over the 2080 Ti is only offered at a premium in one configuration: the 12GB version (27% price markup) but performance gain negligible even under intense workloads (~5-8% enthusiasts-only overclock).
