Video card prices are down to 50%, the “storm” has passed, bringing joy back to gamers


According to ComputerBase, the cost of video cards is starting to drop by up to 50% in Europe. In addition, the situation of scarcity has also improved, sales of most GPU models from AMD and NVIDIA have doubled compared to the previous month. Previously, ASRock said that GPU prices are falling because Chinese farmers are no longer collecting mining cards as much as before.

Cards like the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 and AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT are down nearly 50% compared to the previous month. Meanwhile, top cards like the RTX 3080 and RX 6800 XT did not drop that much, only losing about 10-15%. Anyway, this is also a positive signal in a time of scarce components like the present.

In the US, GPU prices are also falling, albeit slower than in Europe. A member on Reddit named u/xclm did a card price list and discovered that on average all cards are 20% off in June compared to May, while top cards like the RTX 3090 are not. Up to 32% off.

This change is largely due to the fact that the Chinese government is tightening the mining of coins, and coins like Ethereum and Bitcoin are also falling in price. This makes farmers no longer rush to collect cards like before and at the same time forces them to release less cards. Although it will take some time for everything to stabilize again, this is still a positive signal for us gamers.
