As we have already reported, Nvidia GeForce RTX 30-Series graphics cards prices are cheaper and although they are still far from the prices suggested by NVIDIA, they are much cheaper than just a few months ago. Interestingly, according to 3DCenter.org, the prices of NVIDIA’s RTX 30-Series are falling faster than the AMD RX 6000 series GPU, or at least in the German market.
Nvidia RTX 30-Series graphics cards prices go down
If we look at the prices of graphics cards for the first half of the year, we can see that the AMD models from the Radeon RX 6000 series at that time were much closer to the amounts of the Nvidia GPUs, which were able to reach over three times the suggested price. Since May, however, the prices of the GeForce RTX 30 have clearly decreased and this trend continues also in August.
According to the graphics card price chart from 3DCenter.org, the RX 6000 series cards are cheaper (albeit at a slower pace than in July), while the prices of AMD products began to rise, causing the cards of both companies to swap places in terms of value for money catalogs.

The downward trend in RTX graphics card prices in the German market is very clear. In May, the GPUs of the Nvidia was briefly trading above 300% of their suggested retail price, but inflation has declined significantly since then, to 191% just a month later, and has now fallen below 150% in August.
On the other hand, for AMD, prices remained relatively static compared to the competition. The Radeon RX 6000 cards also hit a recent high of 214% in May, but real prices fell to 159% of suggested prices in August.
Given the context of AMD’s manufacturing situation, these figures for price inflation are hardly surprising. A few days ago, we learned that AMD’s current generation seems to be selling far fewer graphics cards than NVIDIA, at least that’s according to hardware surveys conducted regularly on Steam.
In short, for every RX 6000 graphics card active in the service, there are eleven players with RTX 30 series cards. This means AMD cards can either continue to cost more or stay close to their current levels for longer than NVIDIA cards.
