GPU prices are coming down however they remain un-affordable

The GPU prices in the market are as high as they could ever be, previously they were available as much as five their original MSRP. However, even though the prices have gradually subsided in recent times, the prices are still at least twice as high as the MSRP.

According to the GPU market pricing analysis of the 3DCenter, which released its results on the German pricing trends up to July 18th, we can say with the hope that the pricing of the GPUs is certainly coming to a stable level. However, the hope is not to rejoice. As we can see a minimal 3% average price drop for Nvidia’s RTX 30-series but on the other hand AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 series pricing, has bounced slightly up an equivalent 3%.

We have seen NVIDIA’s RTX 30-series selling on average at three times their MSRP, but that price is still too high for comfort. But it seems that the situation is even worse for those wanting to buy AMD’s cards.

For the resellers and the second-hand market sellers, it’s a matter of attempting to maintain margins. German resellers have to balance their prices, for cards already in stock and bought at increased prices from distributors. These distributors have increased the prices of the cards because they too have to maintain their increased margins from the result of an unprecedented supply/demand ratio for graphics cards.

The business is extremely tricky and because of the margin maintenance at the very stage the final price that the consumer has to pay ends up being thrice or four times that of the MSRP. resellers increase their margins on cheaper GPUs they’ve recently acquired and reduce the pricing for the existing supply.

However, the second-hand market these days is quite worse. The only GPUs which are available comes from crypto mining farms. Due to the result of the government’s heavy crack on the crypto mining facilities, we can see that the crypto miners are having a hard time with their hardware.

The GPU prices are certainly coming down however, the selling prices are still extremely high. And due to cryptocurrency, the second-hand market is also out of options.
