In addition to that, GPU supply is abundant and currently, there's no retail outlet in the world that doesn't have graphics cards on their store shelves (which wasn't the case a few quarters back). The red and green teams have also announced various promos such as the 'Restocked and Reloaded' by NVIDIA and AMD also announcing how its Radeon RX 6000 series cards are available at MSRP-level prices.

The NVIDIA lineup averages around +14% prices over MSRP but it is just three cards at the moment, the RTX 3050, RTX 3060 Ti, and RTX 3070 which are priced over +20% of MSRP. The enthusiast RTX 3080 Ti can actually be found below the MSRP which is impressive given that it offers performance similar to the RTX 3090 Ti which costs several hundred dollars more.

We recently saw the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT being sold at $100 US below its MSRP over at Newegg US. There are just a few cards that are currently in demand and would take a few more months to hit their MSRP figures but the vast majority of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 and AMD Radeon RX 6000 lineup is currently being sold at normal prices. This along with prices now coming back at or below the MSRP means that the GPU market is out of the worse and prices/availability can now go back to normal.
