GPU prices on eBay have dropped almost 9% in the first two weeks of March 2022 according to Tom's Hardware. Compared to December 2021, the prices have come down by an average of 25%. Both the current-gen and the last-gen GPUs experienced this price reduction.

Tom’s Hardware’s analysis of GPU prices for the first two weeks of March 2022 has revealed that eBay prices for both Nvidia and AMD GPUs are plummeting fast. According to the site, eBay listings show a 25% reduction in average GPU prices since December 2021. However, even with the current price drops, GPU prices remain inflated, coming in at 68% above MSRP for Nvidia and 45% for AMD.

Looking at eBay prices for the current-gen Nvidia RTX 3000 series cards, we see that the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 dropped by 9.2% this month and now sits at an average price of US$2,126. AMD’s competing RX 6900 XT saw its price reduced by 6.9% and now goes for an average rate of US$1,324. Mid-range offerings like the RTX 3070 and the RX 6800 are selling for US$887 and US$960 respectively, a 10.2% and 7% difference in price compared to February.

Last-gen GPUs also scored some price cuts. For instance, RTX 2080 Ti’s average eBay pricing depreciated by 4.2%, resulting in an average selling price of US$935. AMD’s last-gen offerings like the RX 5700 XT are also going for appreciably less than February 2022 with an average rate clocking in at US$627, a 12.1% decrease.

These latest price changes are indicating that the dreadful GPU market of the last two years may finally be coming to a close. And although prices are still way above MSRP, if the trend revealed by Tom’s Hardware survey continues, we may see the graphics card pricing return to normal by the end of this year.
