Just like during the past few months, it seems that AMD and Nvidia video cards have become cheaper. In addition to improving stock shortages, there are several possible explanations: cryptocurrencies have taken a hit in recent weeks, making mining less interesting financially, and the next generation of video chips is also slowly approaching.
As is customary, in this overview we take a closer look at the five cheapest custom models of each GPU in the Product Comparator, so that we can paint a better picture of the market situation.
The most popular card at the moment, the Gigabyte RX 6800 Gaming OC, is available from 742 euros.
As usual, we start with team green. The average price of the RTX 3050, 3060, 3070 Ti and 3090 Ti is almost identical to last month, although the latter is still cheaper than the (firm) suggested retail price of 2,249 euros. The RTX 3080 Ti has seen the sharpest drop (-10.2%), making it the second Ampere card to get for less than the MSRP.
|GPU (Nvidia)||Recommended retail price (€)||Avg. price may||Avg. price June||Difference compared to May||Difference from msrp|
|RTX 3060 Ti||439||620||574||-7,4%||+30,8%|
|RTX 3070 Ti||649||800||793||-0,9%||+22,2%|
|RTX 3080 Ti||1.269||1.375||1.235||-10,2%||-2,7%|
|RTX 3090 Ti||2.249||2.110||2.078||-1,5%||-7,6%|
The RTX 3060 Ti and RTX 3070 have also become noticeably cheaper, these GPUs cost about five bucks less than in May. Relatively speaking, the RTX 3060 Ti remains the most expensive variant of the RTX 3000 series, since it costs 30.82% more than the recommended retail price. The RTX 3060 also comes very close, with an additional cost of 28.33%. On average you pay 15.30% on top of the suggested retail price for an RTX 30 card, or five percentage points less than last month.
|GPU (AMD)||Recommended retail price (€)||Avg. price may||Avg. price June||Difference compared to May||Difference from msrp|
|RX 6500 XT||215||214||211||-1,4%||-1,9%|
|RX 6600 XT||389||470||457||-2,6%||+17,6%|
|RX 6650 XT||449||505||476||-5,7%||+6,0%|
|RX 6700 XT||489||616||581||-5,6%||+18,9%|
|RX 6750 XT||619||698||637||-8,7%||+2,9%|
|RX 6800 XT||669||1.013||919||-9,3%||+37,3%|
|RX 6900 XT||999||1.068||1.056||-1,2%||+5,7%|
|RX 6950 XT||1.229||1.351||1.288||-4,7%||+4,8%|
It is striking that AMD’s RDNA 2 cards are also about 15% more expensive than the recommended retail price. This average is again greatly increased by the RX 6800 and 6800 XT, which cost 49.5 and 37.3% more respectively. The RX 6500 XT is a few euros below the recommended retail price, while the RX 6750 XT is 2.9% more expensive with two extra tens.
Compared to the end of May, the RX 6600, RX 6750 XT, RX 6800 and RX 6800 XT are the biggest losers in the red camp: the price of these four GPUs has fallen by at least 8.1 percent. At the other end of the spectrum are the RX 6400 (+0.7%), the RX 6500 XT (-1.4%) and the RX 6900 XT (-1.2%). On average, you pay 5.8% less for an RX 6000 card than a few weeks ago.
The RX 6800 XT costs an average of 24 euros more than its little brother.
It’s good news that the current generation of video cards continues to get cheaper, although the decline is again slightly less strong than last month. Taking the aforementioned factors into account, there is currently little reason to believe why this downward trend should change (significantly).
