We now know that the video card market is suffering from a large-scale chip shortage. What is less clear is how exactly things are. Last month it turned out that the situation was highly variable, for many cards, high demand and shortages caused large spikes in prices, but in Germany and Austria it became clear shortly after that prices were often double. prices. It is worth checking from time to time whether the situation has improved somewhat.

It turns out that the prices of many graphics cards are stagnant, at a high level. When the RTX 3090 has a suggested retail price of € 1,549, the minimum price at the time of writing is € 2,150. That’s the same as a month ago. The same goes for Nvidia’s RTX 3000 cards at the lower end of the market. For example, the RTX 3060 now costs at least 359 euros, double the recommended retail price and a few tens more than the previous price of 615 euros. For the RTX 3060 Ti it has become cheaper by two dozen, although with a price of 576 euros it is still well above the suggested retail price of 419 euros.

For AMD’s counterparts, prices have clearly increased. Where before the RX 6900 XT cost 1,399 euros, the minimum price is now 1704 euros. The RX 6800 XT has risen less sharply in price, now costing 1,499 euros instead of 1,237 euros. In contrast, the price of the RX 6800 non-XT has increased by almost 50%, in addition to the 1499 euros. That’s almost three times the suggested retail price of 599 euros.

This morning we wrote that the market contracted slightly in the third quarter, possibly due to high prices. However, the shortage would continue until the end of 2022. Earlier this month, Digitimes wrote that prices will likely continue to rise in the first half of next year. So this image is likely to stay that way for a while. If we consider that the holidays are around the corner, that possibility only increases.
