AMD Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards now sell for just 12% above MSRP

The April price trend report on the current generation Radeon RX 6000 and GeForce RTX 30 series is published by 3DCenter. So far, this report has managed to provide the most accurate insight into the GPU market. The report bases its findings on data collected from German and Austrian retailers. Not only that, this is also the longest running analysis of this particular type; from when prices rose in January 2021.

Prices have fallen dramatically this year. We have witnessed a price drop of 80% above MSRP to 12-19% at this point. This is the cheapest current generation graphics cards have been in 16 months. The report usually comes out every three weeks and with each report we see a double-digit decline. If this trend continues, we may see graphics cards reach their suggested retail price soon.

The data also sheds light on the availability of the GPU, which has never looked more promising. The reason behind this is the expectation that prices will drop below the MSRP, while the next generation of GPUs will be launched in the coming months. So far, we haven’t heard of any price cut announcements from AMD or NVIDIA, nor are there any bundles to boost sales.

This puts enormous pressure on GPU manufacturers as they are expected to launch their next-gen GPUs within the next five to six months. We already know that AMD is all set to introduce the updated RDNA2 RX 6x50XT series in May.
