Almost all graphics cards are now returning to their US list price on average. AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 cards are even significantly lower.
Expensive graphics card models currently have the greatest potential for savings.
Due to the price of the cryptocurrency Bitcoin, which has been falling for a few weeks, the prices for graphics cards are now falling. The currently weak exchange rate between the US dollar and the euro and the sell-off in favor of the next generation of graphics cards also contribute to this downward trend.
Greatest savings potential with high-end models
With the forthcoming launch of the Geforce RTX 40 series from Nvidia and the Radeon RX 7000 series from AMD, buyers of the most expensive models from the previous generation are currently benefiting in particular. The Radeon RX 6950 XT is already offered by many retailers for 1,199 euros. Their list price is also listed as $1,199. With the competition, the difference to the list price is even greater. The GeForce RTX 3090 Ti is set at 1,999 euros. In online retail, however, the graphics card can be found on average from 1,399 euros.

A look at the core portfolio of the two manufacturers, which consists of Radeon RX 6700 XT, 6800 and 6800 XT for AMD and RTX 3060 Ti, 3070 and 3080 for Nvidia, shows the price drop in the past month even more clearly. On July 10, 2022, the price for AMD’s graphics cards in online retail was twelve percent below the list price, on July 31, 2022 it was already 14 percent. With Nvidia, the difference is smaller. In mid-July, the street price for the core portfolio was three percent below the list price, and by the end of July it was already nine percent.
