Graphics cards in Germany are much cheaper. In our country, we can also observe an increase in availability. It is possible that GPU prices will return to normal soon.
If you’ve tried to buy a graphics card this year, you might have hit the wall. Not only were the new models very poorly available, but they also cost much more than the producers anticipated.
Behind our western border, we are witnessing a decline in GPU prices. Graphics cards cost less and less, although still well above the MSRP price. They are also much better available. It is still a bit short of acceptable prices to return, but the improvement is noticeable and gives rise to optimism.
What’s more, we can also observe positive changes in our country. The most popular GPU models can be purchased almost without any problems. RTX 3000 and AMD 6000 series cards are available in the most popular stores. Of course, such a purchase still involves overpaying. Nevertheless, if someone just wants to quickly buy a new card and does not care about a good price, they have the option.
Most likely, the improvement is related to the reaction of NVIDIA and AMD, which took the struggle for the availability of equipment to heart. Both vendors promised to bring more graphics cards to stores. In addition, remember that the prices of cards are also influenced by the situation on the cryptocurrency market.
While I would n’t expect to return to normal prices in the next few months, I wouldn’t rule out buying new GPUs at acceptable prices by the end of the year. If availability has improved significantly, a drop in prices is inevitable. It’s been a matter of a few months now.
