Hardware without box recently published a report on the prices of AMD Radeon and NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards from Newegg. NVIDIA was the first major manufacturer to announce that their RTX 30 series of cards was back on the seller’s shelf, and it was also the first to cut the price of the popular computer component.
AMD dominates GPU sales, with Radeon RX 6000 prices outpacing NVIDIA RTX 30 series GPUs
MSRP, or “Manufacturer’s Recommended Retail Price,” is slowly beginning to mean something in the economy again, especially when it comes to computer components such as processors and the most sought-after graphics cards.
For both competitors, NVIDIA GeForce and AMD Radeon, GPU prices range from just six to a peak of eight percent in one month. As great as it is to hear this, AMD customers should start to rejoice, as the company’s GPUs are almost up to the recommended retail price set by the manufacturer.
AMD Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards are conveniently five percent above MSRP, while the new RX 6500XT, 6600XT and 6900XT cards fall below the recommended retail price. Other cards, such as the RX 6800 series, sell about 31% above the recommended levels. Readers should note that if Hardware Unboxed did not include both the RX 6800 and 6800XT in the Hardware Unboxed findings, the average cost of inflation would be only 0.1% of the market.
On the other hand, NVIDIA struggled with the company’s entry-level and mid-range graphics cards, leading to lower levels of RTX 30 by only 6%, which still puts them close to seven percent higher in price than their current main competitor. In response to the lower price of graphics cards on the market, the company launched the GTX 1630, the first card in the GTX x30 line.
With rumors of the company’s NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 series in just a few months, NVIDIA will be at a significant disadvantage unless the company takes an aggressive marketing strategy to dominate AMD’s current leadership.
The video below from Hardware Unboxed discusses the market in more detail and covers the prices used for AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards.
