AMD Radeon RX 6000 series just 5% above MSRP on average, NVIDIA RTX 30 at 24% –

AMD Radeon RX 6000 prices drop

The latest Newegg GPU pricing report from HardwareUnboxed confirms that AMD Radeon RX 6000 is indeed cheaper than the NVIDIA RTX 30 series.

MSRP (Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price) is slowly becoming the norm, says HardwareUnboxed, which just released its latest report based on current prices from one of America’s largest retailers, Newegg. While both brands see a similar price move in a single month (6-8% drop), AMD’s offering is now almost at MSRP level.

The average price of Radeon RX 6000 cards is now 5% above MSRP, with some cards now even retailing below MSRP (RX 6900XT/6600XT/6500XT). However, the RX 6800 series is still priced up to 31% higher (RX 6800). Interestingly, if it weren’t for the RX 6800 model, the average price inflation would only be 2.4% for the entire series, 0.1% if the RX 6800XT wasn’t neither included.

Although monthly prices for GeForce RTX 30 cards have also fallen, by an average of 6%, the MSRP of NVIDIA cards is still 24% higher across the stack. As reported yesterday, NVIDIA clearly has a problem with mid-tier to low-end GPUs. The rapid drop in price of GPUs is now forcing NVIDIA to release a new model called GTX 1630.

Expect NVIDIA to change tack soon, which would have an immediate effect on pricing. This is especially important given that the GeForce RTX 40 series is only 2 months away, assuming the rumors are true.
