Video Card Prices Continue To Fall, But At A Slower Rate – Computer – News

In the past two months, video card prices have continued to drop, but not as much as they used to. Most of the cards were cheaper between €20 and €60, with the RTX 4090 as a notable exception. Newly released models are also below the suggested retail price.

Where we saw some video cards drop prices by more than a hundred euros between March and May this year, the price drops have been more limited since then. This is evident from the data from Tweakers Pricewatch. In absolute terms, AMD’s RX 7900 XT and XTX were the biggest declines in the past two months. Both are 60 euros cheaper than in May.

Remarkably, the latest cards, such as the RTX 4060 (Ti) from Nvidia and the RX 7600 from AMD, are also available for dozens less than the suggested retail price. In the case of the RTX 4060 Ti 16GB, introduced last week, the price has already been reduced by twenty euros in seven days.

A single card price movement is completely against the trend. At the time of writing, I’ve lost €70 more on the RTX 4090 than I lost two months ago. However, this card is still €280 cheaper than the price Nvidia mentioned up front. These markdowns can be seen on all of the high-end Radeon and GeForce cards, but the RX 7900 XT and RTX 4080 have dropped by far since their release, down 22 and 20 percent, respectively.

Where Nvidia has now brought out a significant portion of its RTX 40 line, AMD still has a huge gap in its offering. AMD does not yet sell RX 7000 cards between 300 and 800 euros, while Nvidia now offers no less than five different models in this bandwidth. AMD reportedly plans to introduce intermediate models in the RX 7700 and RX 7800 series at gamescom trade show. This will take place at the end of August, which should be followed by availability in September.
