NVIDIA GeForce GPU prices continue to get close to the MSRP mark thanks to improved availability while AMD Radeon GPU prices are trending slightly higher, reports 3DCenter in the latest graphics card prices update.

NVIDIA GeForce Graphics Card Prices Could Reach MSRP By End of Year As Ampere Availability Improves, AMD Radeon Graphics Card Prices Trending Higher Due to 7nm GPU Constrains

Last month, it was reported that the NVIDIA and AMD GPU price fall had come to a halt after a drop from over 300% surcharge to just 50% surcharge thanks to several factors. While we aren't getting similar drops in prices, the NVIDIA and AMD pricing trend shows that thanks to the ramping up of its Ampere GPUs, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX graphics card lineup could hit its intended MSRP by this years end. AMD on the other hand is seeing the graphics card prices go up once again due to 7nm supply constraints for its RDNA 2 GPUs that are featured within Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards on desktop PCs.

NVIDIA has taken lots of steps to ensure that gamers get GeForce RTX GPUs in their hands and not miners. The company launched its CMP (Crypto Mining Processor) series which are graphics cards designed specifically for mining purposes. The company also launched its LHR (Lite Hash Rate) GPU lineup which replaced the entire existing GeForce RTX 30 Ampere GPU lineup and enforced mining algorithm restrictions. The LHR cards hold little to a low value for crypto mining purposes & NVIDIA has made a dent in overall prices in various markets as still-operational cryptocurrency setups are unable to use them & gamers are reluctant to buy graphics cards at such high prices that retailers are ultimately cutting down prices in a significant manner.

There's still a large stock of non-LHR GeForce RTX 30 GPUs in the market which distributors and retailers are holding on to and will release at exorbitant prices once the next crypto boom occurs though that would be the last of the non-LHR stock. The LHR Ampere GPUs are currently being ramped up by NVIDIA and their supply has improved tremendously over the past few weeks and that can be seen on major retail outlets. The prices are still 40-45% higher than the MSRP but the trend shows that we can expect MSRP-level pricing by the year-end.

Moving over to AMD, well we did talk to a few big AIB partners of AMD and they aren't hopeful on the supply getting better anytime soon. The problem still exists with TSMC's 7nm process node & that's been gobbled up by competitors and other AMD products to which the company has given more priority to such as Zen 3 CPUs and custom SOCs for consoles.

In the pricing chart above, you can see that all NVIDIA GPUs are currently rated at 3 starts or above while AMD with only four GPUs has an availability rating starting at 2 stars. Pricing of NVIDIA's high-end lineup such as the 3080 Ti and 3090 has improved tremendously and currently costs just 15-20 percent over MSRP. It's the older RTX 3060, RTX 3070, RTX 3080 stock that's still priced on the high-side but those have also fallen around 15% on average from the previous month.

AMD graphics cards continue to remain on the high side with the Big Navi GPU starting at 30% over MSRP and up to 81% higher prices while the 6700 XT costs 44% more on average versus the MSRP. This doesn't bode well for the Radeon RX 6600 XT which launches tomorrow and already has been listed for around $700 US which is a 60-80% markup over its MSRP. But we should be hopeful for things to get better by end of 2021 as reported by all industry analysts.
