As we enter September, we continue to notice that the prices of AMD and NVIDIA GPUs are in free fall and are expected to drop further in the coming days.
NVIDIA and AMD GPU Prices Continue to Drop Below MSRP, RTX 3090 Series Drops Under $1000 for the First Time!
last week, we reported How AMD and NVIDIA partners are ready to offer greater discounts and cuts to their existing inventory to stockpile and prepare for next-gen GPUs. Graphics manufacturers have been unsuccessful in their first attempt to port enough GPUs, but the second round, which will be more brutal than the first in terms of price cuts, is expected to hit retailers this month, and we’re already seeing signs of it. .
At the time of writing this piece (03/09/22), several NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti & RTX 3090 graphics cards drop below $1000 – $1100. On Newegg, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card can be purchased at the lowest price. $959.99, a 36% drop compared to the MSRP of $1499, and the series dropped below $1,000 for the first time. At the same time, the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti is now $1099 USThat’s an even bigger drop of 45% compared to its $2000 MSRP.
Even the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, which dropped below $900 a few weeks ago, is now $799 USand a $100 drop in price since our last pricing article. This is 33% below the MSRP of the card, which was set at $1199 at launch. On Newegg, you can pretty much even find an RTX 3090. $928.99 US. At BestBuy you can even find an RTX 3080 Ti listed for the lowest price. $739.99 US.
NVIDIA isn’t the only one affected by the price cuts, as AMD’s Radeon RX 6950 XT and RX 6900 XT are well below their MSRPs. The RX 6950 XT also drops below $1,000 to $949 compared to its launch MSRP of $1099, while the Radeon RX 6900 XT holds its price of $699 against its launch MSRP of $999.

on Baidu Forums, we can now see pricing updates daily with a few high-end cards selling for 35-45% below their MSRP. With an MSRP of RMB 14999 (US$2173) in China, the RTX 3090 Ti is currently priced at RMB 7799 or US$1130. The RTX 3090 and 3080 Ti have seen similar price drops and the rest of the lineup is currently selling 10-15% below MSRP. On the AMD side, aside from the RX 6900 XT, which saw a 40% drop in price compared to MSRP, the rest of the series is 20-30% below MSRP, which is a much higher price drop than NVIDIA’s in the mainstream segment. . .
If you think these are the lowest prices these cards can achieve and that it’s a good time to buy a new graphics card, I’d recommend postponing your purchase further as prices continue to drop and rumors increase. If a potential RTX 40 series is coming to market in a few months, you may be seeing the RTX 3090s selling for much less, even closer to $500.
