The prices of AMD Radeon RX 6000 and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 series cards have been falling rapidly in the last few months. While both series remain above MSRP, GeForce RTX 30 cards are now two times cheaper in Germany than they were in May.

A few weeks ago, we reported that the prices of AMD Radeon RX 6000 and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3000 series cards were finally dropping, having seemingly peaked in May. 3DCenter has now re-evaluated the average selling prices of graphics cards in Germany, as you can see in the chart below. In short, AMD and NVIDIA's cards are as cheap as they have been since the start of 2021.

NVIDIA cards are falling harder than AMD equivalents, but they peaked at a much higher price than their MSRP. By mid-May, the RTX 30 series had exceeded 3x its MSRP, with the RX 6000 series only reaching 2.14x. However, both series are now scraping the 1.5x barrier; neither have got so close to their MSRPs since late January.

The second-hand market reflects this downward trend, too. While still well above MSRP in most cases, the likes of the RX 6700 XT now fetch approximately £600 in the UK on eBay and US$700 in the US. By contrast, the same card would have cost you about £800/US$1,000 in late May. Similarly, second-hand GeForce RTX 3070 prices have fallen below £800/US$1,100, a far cry from the £1,200/US$1,600 heights of two months ago.

Overall, it remains improbable to purchase a new Radeon RX 6000 or GeForce RTX 30 series card new at MSRP. Second prices are now not that far off AIB pricing, but we would still probably hold off, for now, to see if prices drop even further.
