Graphics Card Prices Continue To Fall: The Radeon RX 6900 XT Is Finally Below MSRP – Falling graphics card prices have been in constant headlines of late, and for good reason. Ever since the COVID-19 pandemic began, supply lines have been badly hit. This led to increasing in prices and less availability of products. Now, however, GPU prices are falling to a level we haven’t seen in a long time.
It might sound a little silly to get excited about graphics card prices finally reaching MSRP, but here we are. The GPU prices of the last two years have gone insane. Although we have seen a drop in GPU prices in recent months, they are not as low as they could be. However, this may change now. Newegg recently announced the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT under MSRP of $ 999.
The card, introduced by Newegg for $ 899, is the first GPU to fall under its MSRP in two years. While the Radeon RX 6900 XT doesn’t have as much hype as Nvidia’s RTX 30 series, it’s a good card. Of course, that price has now gone up again. But you can still get it for $50 with the discount card. And it’s exciting to see graphics card prices drop so much, especially with so many companies working on new graphics and CPU options.
Intel has already unveiled lower-powered variants of its GPUs, with AMD and Nvidia expected to launch new GPU options next year as well. But seeing current graphics card prices drop just as much in recent months is welcome news for anyone looking to upgrade.
Of course, it is not known whether the prices will continue to fall. This may only be a limited time offer, as Newegg states on its store page. But, if it persists, it will continue the decline we’ve seen in graphics card prices over the past month or so.
I mentioned earlier how GPU prices are falling drastically. In April, the price of the Nvidia RTX 3080 fell by over 35% overnight. This helped facilitate the widespread availability of graphics cards.
Ultimately, it’s not clear how much graphics card prices will continue to drop in the coming months. But hopefully, this current price of AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT is a promising move. We may also see the RTX 30-series cards reaching or dropping the MSRP very soon.
