Most GPUs now start below MSRP: Graphics Card Prices, August 2022 – Tom’s Hardware | Omd Cialis

Graphics card prices are again lower in early August 2022 than in the previous month, although the pace of the decline has slowed. We’ve compiled the data for the current prices, both retail and eBay, for the best graphics cards and all the latest GPUs in our GPU benchmark hierarchy. eBay prices have fallen an average of 6% since July 1, and prices for previous generation cards have fallen an average of 8%. Interestingly, retail prices also fell 7% on average, with several GPUs posting double-digit declines.

There is a strong correlation between graphics card prices and mining profitability, and there are some minor concerns about the slow recovery in cryptocurrency prices over the past month. Mining profitability improved somewhat, although even the RTX 3090 and RTX 3090 Ti are only making around $2.50 per day on average. Bitcoin bottomed at just under $18,000 in mid-June and is now just over $23,000. Ethereum also hit a low of less than $900 on June 18 and has since recovered to around $1,700. Will they keep this level? That’s the billion dollar question.

If you’re willing to take a risk on eBay, almost every GPU now sells below its official MSRP. There are only three exceptions, Nvidia’s RTX 3060 Ti, RTX 3060 and RTX 3050. The most expensive GPUs are even sold 20-35% below MSRP, along with RX 6600 XT, RX 6600 and RX 6500 XT.

Retail prices aren’t significantly worse either, giving you the peace of mind of buying a brand new GPU. Only the RTX 3080 down to the RTX 3050 are sold above MSRP, at about a 10% premium on the RTX 3080 and RTX 3070 Ti and a 20% premium on the other three GPUs. By the way, the RTX 3080 12GB is actually available fewer than the 10GB card and generally delivers 5-10% better performance.

While Nvidia still has a few cards over MSRP, AMD’s GPUs are all way below MSRP if you go through eBay, and only the RX 6800 XT and RX 6800 are selling at MSRP if you retail a new card want to buy. One could argue that some of AMD’s GPUs initially had a higher than guaranteed MSRP, but the same is true of certain Nvidia cards. Still, AMD’s eBay prices are currently typically around 20% below MSRP or 10% below MSRP at retail.
