Just with the launch of the new generation of GPUs just around the corner, we can already say that practically All AMD and Nvidia graphics cards are already close to their RRPand does the latest average price of AMD Radeon RX 6000 series and Nvidia GeForce RTX 30 GPUs, in the European market, reveal that AMD GPUs have a 2% cost overrunwhile the graphics from Nvidia are around 6%.
In the case of AMD, this method is favored by the Radeon RX6500XTwho saw how its price is 19% lower than recommendedwhich clearly indicates that this is a very poorly sold GPU and that they need to reduce the price to sell it.
On the completely opposite side are the Radeon RX 6800 and Radeon RX 6800 XTwhich have an additional cost of 35 and 22 percentthat is to say, the most interesting range for gamers is the one with the highest prices, while the high-end model, the Radeon RX 6950 XTwhich is a much less demanded GPU, has an additional cost of 1%.
In the case of Nvidia, no GPU is below the recommended price. The one that has seen its price increase the least is the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090which only costs 2 more concerning its recommended price, while on the other hand the same thing happens as with AMD: the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060Tithe company’s most popular GPU, is the most expensive, 21% to be exact, while the GeForce RTX 3050, RTX 3060, RTX 3070, and RTX 3080 10GB cost extra from 12%.
According to the chart, prices are going to keep falling, and they’re bound to, and that’s because stocks need to be liquidated, and that’s because Nvidia is expected to announce the new generation of GPUs in mid-July, with the GeForce RTX 4090s arriving in August.
On the other hand, the graph also shows the profitability of mining (in yellow), which is at an historic low, so it is not worth buying equipment today, because the investment will not be profitable.
