Technology shortages and price hikes of Nvidia and AMD products are afoot, as a recent report suggests that GPUs are still expensive in places like Europe.
For anyone looking to upgrade their system or put all a new PC together, get hold of Nvidia or AMD graphics cards are struggling a bit at the moment, with technology shortages being the limiting factor in the market for the better part of a year. With Intel CEO sure shortages could continue until 2023, the situation is unlikely to get better, and those who want to buy new hardware must be willing to pay a much higher price. The price of GPUs has often been higher than MSRP for a while, and it seems that the products are still selling at disproportionate prices.
According to a recent report, the cost of Nvidia Cards have increased since October, a trend that has been going on since August, with a peak increase of 95% in retail value, especially for places like Europe. However, while AMD’s products are still higher than MSRP, they appear to have been going down since last month, although they have also increased since late summer along with Nvidia GPUs.
While it’s not quite a price increase over May, where some products are 300% higher than the MSRP, it still means Nvidia RTX 3080 are on sale in parts of Europe for around €1,500, or as little as US$1,700. In an ideal world, this GPU would cost around €719, or just over US$800. This shows the current state of things as Christmas approaches and people are finding themselves paying large sums of money or risking not being able to own any new graphics cards.
It’s not better for the “red team” though reduced, with AMD RX 6000 . GPU averaged twice the MSRP, up 9% monthly, according to the report. All in all, things are still not looking good and if the current trend continues, it is unlikely that the price will drop significantly any time soon.
Even if availability could be a little better than it is now, consumers are struggling due to Nvidia and current AMD cards. With Nvidia CEO says company may struggle to keep up with demand, it’s been an uncertain time for PC enthusiasts, with predictions suggesting shortages could continue for another year, which could keep prices at rather ludicrously high levels this.
