Graphic card prices are finally going down

PC Builders Rejoice: After years of shortages have caused painfully high costs, graphics cards have finally returned to a slightly more affordable price.

according to Report by Digital Trends, Both AMD and Nvidia graphics cards are falling in price. The new cards are significantly cheaper, with Nvidia’s RTX 3090 Ti now 16% lower on MSRP and AMD’s RX 6950 XT 4% lower on MSRP.

However, Nvidia’s low-end graphics cards are still plagued by inflation, with cards such as the RTX 3060 and RTX 3060 Ti exceeding 10% of MSRP.

Some graphics cards are still addressing the impact of the shortage, but these new prices are still a significant improvement. About a year ago, Nvidia’s graphics cards, which were in high demand for cryptocurrency miners, reached about 300% of the original MSRP. AMD cards, on the other hand, peaked at over 200%.

As Digital Trends points out, current cryptocurrency crashes and supply chain improvements are expected to improve new prices, make graphics cards easier to use, and less desirable for crypto farmers. ..

In February, Biden signed a presidential order pledged to consider the supply chain issues that are causing the shortage. Earlier, Intel’s CEO announced that an ongoing chip shortage could lead to 2023, but with new improvements in GPU pricing, it doesn’t seem to last much longer.
