GPU Availability and Pricing Update: March 2022



It’s been one year given that we have actually been tracking GPU rates, and also truthfully we were not intending to be right here in March 2022. Thankfully, it’s no more the exact same ruin and also grief versions of the collection that we were making in late 2021. Instance in factor, this month’s rates upgrade is an additional favorable one for individuals seeking to lastly acquire a brand-new GPU for their most recent video gaming computer develop.

There are no brand-new GPU launches this month, after a little task since late like the RTX 3050 and also RX 6500 XT launches from Nvidia and also AMD, specifically. There are nevertheless a couple of future items prior to we enter next-gen area, ideally at the end of this year.

The GeForce RTX 3090 Ti was introduced back at CES, yet hasn’t appeared right now. We’re anticipating to listen to even more concerning that soon. After that on the AMD side, there are reports of a mid-cycle RDNA2 refresh prior to RDNA3 launches.

No Matter that, the GPUs we do have this generation are currently lastly in numerous supply. This is the initial month given that the launch of the RTX 30 collection in September 2020 that you can acquire any type of GPU because family members at Newegg,, and also various other merchants, detailed in supply and also prepared to go. This had actually held true in various other areas months prior as we had actually reported, yet those in the USA are lastly taking advantage of boosted GPU schedule.

To be clear, excellent schedule does not indicate excellent rates. We’re still not in the placement where retail rates is matching promoted MSRPs. Yet we’re obtaining close, and also if items remain to remain on shop racks, rates will certainly remain to drop. There are likewise unofficial reports concerning Nvidia decreasing the cost they market GPUs to AIBs (board manufacturers). We were incapable to confirm that report, yet there is clear proof of rates boosting, so there’s lots of cost motion in either case.

In Australia, to point out one instance, rates for numerous expensive GPUs have actually been dropping considerably, some diminishing a high cliff over night. The Asus GeForce RTX 3080 TUF Video gaming OC was one instance, dropping from $2300 AUD to $1500 over night, an amazing 35% decrease in one go. For a few of one of the most pricey items, the ones that have actually taken care of to stand up to cost modifications up till this factor, we’re anticipating a lot more of that in the coming weeks.

GPU Rates Update

Right here’s where rates presently rests for all existing generation GPUs making use of Newegg, making use of the most affordable cost in supply. Do note, this listing was precise since creating, yet rates is transforming quickly and also frequently so we do advise examining the web links for approximately day details if you’re interested.

MSRP Most Affordable Cost March Cost Rising Cost Of Living
GeForce RTX 3090 $ 1,500 $ 2,020 35%
GeForce RTX 3080 Ti $ 1,200 $ 1,430 19%
GeForce RTX 3080 12GB N/A $ 1,250 N/A
GeForce RTX 3080 10GB $ 700 $ 1,100 57%
GeForce RTX 3070 Ti $ 600 $ 850 42%
GeForce RTX 3070 $ 500 $ 860 72%
GeForce RTX 3060 Ti $ 400 $ 630 58%
GeForce RTX 3060 $ 330 $ 530 61%
GeForce RTX 3050 $ 250 $ 390 56%
Typical 50%

Throughout all 16 GPUs, the ordinary cost rising cost of living now is 44% over MSRP though this differs considerably relying on the version. Older GPUs, launched with allow’s claim even more impractical MSRPs, have the highest possible quantity of rising cost of living right now. For instance, the RTX 3070 is resting 72% over its $500 MSRP, and also the RX 6800 XT is resting 74% over its $650 MSRP.

MSRP Most Affordable Cost March Cost Rising Cost Of Living
Radeon 6900 XT $ 1,000 $ 1,300 30%
Radeon 6800 XT $ 650 $ 1,130 74%
Radeon 6800 $ 580 $ 980 69%
Radeon 6700 XT $ 480 $ 600 25%
Radeon 6600 XT $ 380 $ 500 32%
Radeon 6600 $ 330 $ 400 21%
Radeon 6500 XT $ 200 $ 225 13%
Typical 38%

Nonetheless, more recent GPUs with MSRPs established throughout the center of the GPU rates situation have much less noticable rising cost of living. Now you can acquire a Radeon RX 6600 for 21% over MSRP, and also the 6500 XT for simply 13% over MSRP. We’re seeing comparable fads with the RTX 3080 Ti at 19% over MSRP, which is the most affordable rising cost of living for a GeForce GPU.

We can likewise observe a significant distinction in between Nvidia and also AMD items. Nvidia’s ordinary cost rising cost of living is 50%, while AMD’s is 38%. That’s an enhancement over a lot of 2021, where both brand names mored than 100% rising cost of living. The factor for this disparity in between GPU manufacturers are discussed by AMD’s MSRPs been somewhat extra practical, particularly for their entry-level cards, as well as likewise that Nvidia GPUs are generally in greater need and also consequently in much shorter supply.

The crucial inquiry currently is … if we’ve seen rates drop from 2.5 x MSRP to ~ 1.5 x MSRP, exactly how near to MSRP can we obtain? We see no reason that rates can not remain to drop. We’re not that far from the RX 6600 and also RX 6500 XT striking MSRP or within 10% of MSRP, which is a common AIB margin. For the most sought-after items, such as the RTX 3070 and also RTX 3060, striking those MSRPs is mosting likely to take longer, yet we definitely have not gotten to the cost flooring right now.

It’s likewise essential to keep in mind, there’s a lot of variant in between the most affordable and also most pricey GPUs. Take the Radeon RX 6900 XT as an instance. The most affordable version in supply and also marketed by Newegg is the Phantom Video gaming D version from Asrock at $1,300, or additionally the Nitro+ from Sapphire and also Pc Gaming X Triad from MSI. Yet if you desire the Gigabyte Aorus Master you’re considering even more like $1,600, which truthfully isn’t visiting numerous sales at a $300 costs over the others.

The revival of the retail market, where you can simply most likely to a shop and also acquire items at any moment has actually essentially exterminated business version of scalpers. The schedule of all new GPUs on has actually dropped in the last month, and also much of the versions that are detailed, do not wind up marketing as they are just overpriced contrasted to the most affordable versions at retail. And also as a customer why would certainly you take the threat on some arbitrary vendor over a merchant, also if that merchant is Newegg?

Keeping that stated, some are still buying cards on and also we have great deals of historic information for the scalper market, so allow’s have a look at exactly how rates has actually relocated the last month. For both Nvidia and also AMD GPUs, every card has actually struck its least expensive cost given that we started taping information in very early 2021. Costs have actually visited 10% generally, not rather as significant as the declines we saw in February, yet still strong cost motion to obtain even more cards closer to MSRP.

Typical 72% -10%

This information can not be straight contrasted to what we were simply revealing from Newegg. For list prices we are making use of the most affordable offered, whereas on we such as to make use of standards for real deals. Nonetheless it interests keep in mind that the ordinary marketed cost on is 14% greater for Nvidia GPUs than Newegg’s least expensive cost, which is close to the quantity costs vendors in charges.

Typical 47% -13%

AMD GPUs have actually dropped in cost 13% generally, consisting of a substantial 22% decline for the RX 6600, which we presume is because of significant retail market stress for a card that’s commonly offered currently. The ordinary price for AMD cards was 11% more than the most affordable cost at Newegg, so once again it does not make a great deal of feeling to purchase from a scalper unless you occur to obtain a lower-than-retail offer and also wind up setting you back the vendor cash– which is an advantage as nobody suches as scalpers. still has a function though. If you’re trying to find a made use of GPU, this is the area to seek some. Provided the method the marketplace is headed, if you have actually a made use of GPU existing around you could intend to market it earlier instead of later on as rates is not likely to head back up.

For GeForce 20 collection cards, as an instance, rates dropped 11% month on month, and also Turing GPUs are currently lastly marketing made use of for approximately their MSRP, or sometimes reduced. The RTX 2060 Super is the outlier right here, that card remains in need and also is bizarrely costing ~$ 500 made use of, which has to do with what it sets you back to acquire a brand-new and also much quicker RTX 3060. In our day-one screening, the RTX 3060 was 17% faster at 1440p, so ensure you keep an eye out for these abnormalities if you are intending on acquiring pre-owned graphics cards.

MSRP Standard Cost January Standard Cost February Standard Cost March Existing Cost Rising Cost Of Living Cost Rise Feb to Mar
GeForce GTX 1660 Ti $ 280 $ 445 $ 394 $ 364 30% -8%

GeForce GTX 1650 $ 150 $ 247 $ 213 $ 197 31% -8%
Typical 38% -12%

The GeForce 16 collection continues to be filled with air as these GPUs have just lately got brand-new competitors from the RTX 3050 and also RX 6600. Nonetheless rates have actually boiled down 12% generally in the last month. AMD’s Radeon RX 6600 is offered for around $400 brand-new, simply 14% greater than the GTX 1660 Super is going with made use of generally, yet the RX 6600 mores than 35% faster, so because circumstances it makes even more feeling to obtain a brand-new RX 6600.

There is a flipside to that though. The GTX 1650 Super at $220 made use of generally, versus the more recent RX 6500 XT, which is valued at $225 brand-new. The GTX 1650 Super is in fact a little much faster in our screening than the 6500 XT when making use of a PCIe 4.0 setup, and also much quicker when both remain in a PCIe 3.0 system. The 1650 Super likewise has various other advantages like complete media encoder assistance and also even more display screen results, so it’s the evident option also if the card is made use of.

MSRP Standard Cost January Standard Cost February Standard Cost March Existing Cost Rising Cost Of Living Cost Rise Feb to Mar
GeForce GTX 1080 Ti $ 700 $ 665 $ 561 $ 486 -31% -13%

Pascal GPUs have actually dropped in cost by around 10 percent, currently resting 25% listed below their old MSRPs from over 5 years back. In the majority of circumstances, it’s tough to advise acquiring such an old GPU, they could have been an excellent and also low-cost substitute choice when rates was outrageous, yet nowadays it simply does not really feel ideal to advise Pascal when rates remain to drop in the brand-new market and also for far better made use of GPUs.

MSRP Standard Cost January Standard Cost February Standard Cost March Existing Cost Rising Cost Of Living Cost Rise Feb to Mar
Radeon 5700 XT $ 400 $ 815 $ 714 $ 581 45% -19%
Radeon 5700 $ 350 $ 759 $ 664 $ 544 55% -18%

Typical 46% -18%

When It Comes To Radeon RX 5000 collection GPUs. Oh boy, if you really did not market among these cards formerly, you missed out on a method. These first-gen RDNA cards have actually dropped in cost by a substantial 18% month on month, which is nearly totally because of the decrease in earnings in crypto mining. We have not yapped concerning the crypto market in this short article, yet basically extracting earnings is less than ever before, and also the 5000 collection was particularly proficient at mining and also consequently very in-demand for extracting gears. As the crypto market remains to go stale and also drop, proprietors of cards like the 5700 XT in mining gears do not desire them any longer, and also are marketing them at reduced rates than they did previously.

MSRP Standard Cost January Standard Cost February Standard Cost March Existing Cost Rising Cost Of Living Cost Rise Feb to Mar
Radeon RX Vega 64 $ 500 $ 687 $ 563 $ 425 -15% -24%
Radeon RX Vega 56 $ 400 $ 615 $ 519 $ 419 5% -19%

Radeon RX 570 4GB $ 170 $ 222 $ 183 $ 166 -3% -9%
Typical 1% -15%

Lastly, we have AMD’s older GPUs in the Polaris and also Vega collection. Most of these GPUs have actually likewise been impacted by crypto mining, with big cost decreases seen throughout the Vega line and also with the RX 580 8GB that was scooped up wholesale by miners. The RX 580 8GB isn’t an especially remarkable buy in the existing market, yet with a 21% cost decline contrasted to last month, it’s coming close to a practical cost for spending plan constructs. Nonetheless, in a comparable blood vessel to Nvidia Pascal GPUs, Polaris is an old style now so I would certainly be reluctant entering when the cost is still more than its launch MSRP all those years back.

That’s where rates goes to for GPUs in March 2022 … suitable cost declines throughout the board for all GPUs, which currently rest at their least expensive rates in over a year. The decreases we saw in March weren’t as big as in February, yet it’s still significant contrasted to anything we saw in 2021. That’s outstanding information for computer building contractors and also GPU purchasers.

The very best information this month is that GPUs are easily offered virtually anywhere, any type of version you can desire gets on racks in some kind or an additional. Currently naturally, not at the cost we desire, yet you no more need to consider the scalper market to obtain a GPU. Actually you should not, as GPUs are extra pricey on than at retail for brand-new versions, lastly taking substantial actions in the direction of exterminating the scalper market.

Should you acquire a brand-new GPU now?

My solution to this resembles last month. It depends upon your scenario. If you have actually been waiting ages and also fit to wait longer, we do not think we have actually struck the cost flooring for GPUs yet, and also we assume valuing near to MSRP is attainable, particularly for even more current launches like the RTX 3050 and also RX 6600.

If you are hopeless to update or are seeking to acquire a brand-new video gaming computer now, it’s a quite suitable time, the very best time of any type of in the previous 18 months. That alone will certainly make good sense for some individuals to acquire a GPU currently.

Whether you enter currently or remain to wait on the cost flooring to be struck, that depends upon your scenario and also exactly how “hopeless” you are. The even more poor your existing GPU is, the extra factor there is to update.

It’s likewise worth advising you that we are anticipating to see next-generation GPUs at the end of this year. Our team believe we’ll encounter schedule problems once again when next-gen GPUs launch and also can also see rates increase for existing GPUs around that time– particularly if existing versions are stopped. Yet naturally, there’s a great deal of unpredictability as we are discussing numerous months in the future.
