GPU Prices Drop to Lowest Since Early 2021: NVIDIA RTX 3080 Ti/3070 Ti Fall to $200/$100 Within MSRP

Graphics card prices have continued to sink thru the last 2-4 weeks, reaching the lowest point since the early days of 2021. Both NVIDIA and AMD GPUs are now being sold at a 25% premium over the MSRPs, with June 2022 being the month when prices finally return to normal for good. Over the last three months, graphics card prices have dropped by 10-20% each month, going from being 185% over the MSRP back in Jan to “just” 125% (over the MSRP) at present.


NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3070 Ti and 3080 Ti are the bestselling graphics cards in the US market at the moment. Both these GPUs are going for relatively affordable prices considering the state of the market. The RTX 3070 Ti recently fell to $699.99 (MSRP: $599) a while back but that deal has run dry. Now the cheapest 3070 Ti will cost you $829.99, $229 more than the MSRP.

This is still a notable improvement over Feb when the upper midrange GPU was selling for over $1,000.

The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti fell off a cliff overnight, dropping from $1,800 to $1,399 in one fell swoop. This puts the Ampere gaming flagship $200 over its MSRP on Amazon.

The RTX 3090 followed similar trends, dropping from $2,499 to $2,099 through March, exhibiting a decrease of $500 in its market price in less than a month.

AMD’s Radeon RX 6800 XT inched closer to its MSRP as well, settling just over $1,000. Meanwhile, the RX 6900 XT fell by $200, landing just under $1,300. This puts the RDNA 2 flagship $300 over its official MSRP of $999.
