Graphics card prices continue to fall: the first recommended price models

Prices from German graphics card vendors have continued to fall in recent weeks. At least the top models from AMD and Nvidia stick to the official price recommendation. While that shouldn’t be difficult with the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti due to the already inflated RRP of €2,250, manufacturer cards for the Radeon RX 6900 XT are down a third to prices starting at €1,080.

A more reasonable, but still expensive, option from Nvidia would be the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti starting at 1,350 euros; the difference with the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti is almost a high-end graphics card that you could buy in the next generation. Because those who buy now should not forget that the GeForce RTX 4000 and Radeon RX 7000 are expected next fall.

Links to the price comparison can be found in the table below under the “current prices” tab.

In the entry-level class, the difference between the recommended price and dealer prices is also small, up to 15 percent, but this may also be due to the high RRPs from the start – interested parties still have to accept the fact. that entry-level performance is available at mid-range prices. You can get a GeForce RTX 3050 capable of Full HD resolutions from around 320 euros. The Radeon RX 6500 XT is even cheaper, but does not receive a purchase recommendation due to severe limitations and compromises.

The middle class still has to bleed with price differences of up to 30 percent. But here too, the situation in April 2022 looks much better than a month before: while the GeForce RTX 3060 and Radeon RX 6600 XT cost almost €550 in March, they are now available for less than €450. You can enjoy gaming at 1440p with the Radeon RX 6700 XT from €630 or the GeForce RTX 3070 from €685. At the beginning of the year, you would have had to shell out more than 1000 euros for it: the GeForce RTX 3080 recently fell below this mark.

Prices have continued to fall in recent weeks, although Ethereum cryptocurrency prices have risen significantly after a drop in January 2022 – Ethereum is the most popular cryptocurrency for GPU mining. The price is currently stable at more than 3,000 euros, an increase of 70 percent year over year.



Computing power on the Ethereum network increased by only a few percent in the first few months of 2022.

However, with the pending switch to a new non-mining consensus method, the future of GPU mining is uncertain. At best, the mining market would be saturated and even if a new cryptocurrency for GPU mining grew after the Ethereum conversion, mining farms would no longer leave the graphics card market empty. One contender would be the Ravencoin cryptocurrency. Computing power on the Ethereum network has grown only slightly since the beginning of the year after two years of performance explosion.
