It's time to take a look at the current state of the GPU market in the monthly update feature. Unsurprisingly, graphics cards are still very expensive, and everyone involved is still making a lot of money. For example, Nvidia recently announced its quarterly earnings, which includes a huge jump in annual revenue for its gaming business. So if you are a GPU manufacturer you can be happy with the current situation and if you are a GPU buyer you can cry to sleep.
In this version of the GPU price update, we have the time not to spend much time talking about the current retail market because it hasn't changed much in the past few months. Prices for graphics cards on store shelves are still high, availability is very good in most areas, and the actual price of these GPUs has only inflated due to market pressures we've been talking about for months - all of which is unlikely during this time. Holiday shopping changes. p>
In fact, some retailers have told us that GPU sales are not high at the moment because interest in cards is low at current prices, but they can't bring down the cost because of the supplier's insidious tactics like packaging and simplicity inflate prices. So there seems to be some dead end in this area. p>
What we want to cover is a bigger question that's been on everyone's minds last year: Will the price of a GPU ever drop? Who goes down? Are there future solutions to this problem? p> Future releases and possible solutions?
A special story has been going on recently about the Nvidia RTX 2060's update with 12 GB of VRAM. The launch has been in the works for some time, with reports for months, but it looks like everything is ready for the January RTX 2060 update. For example, GIGABYTE models appear in the Electronic Control Center (ECC). Some call it a GPU that's meant to fight miners and reduce inventory issues, but will that really be the case? p>
From a production standpoint, the RTX 2060 should be cheaper than other Nvidia GPUs. . It uses a previous generation Turing-type GPU, which was built using TSMC's older, cheaper 12-nanometer node, which is slightly less demanding than high-end nodes. However, the RTX 2060 still uses GDDR6 memory, the same amount of memory used in current GPUs, including the RTX 3060, and the same amount as 3060 x 12 GB. Therefore, if there are limitations to the supply of GDDR6 memory, or the price remains high, the RTX 2060 will not necessarily be a real solution to the GPU availability crunch. p>
But as one node becomes mature, it is possible that the supply of Nvidia GPUs will increase, provided they have purchased additional capacity at TSMC and we have no clue as to whether they did. If the entire width is maximized on the Samsung 8nm node with no room for additional capacity, and if GPU supply is the main constraint to more GPU output, this could lead to overcapacity. p>
. There are a lot of "ifs" and we're not convinced that simply reverting to the old design on a more mature node will significantly increase GPU supply. Over the past year we've heard about price hikes and problems with all kinds of components used to fit the graphics card together, everything from memory and surface components to the PCBs themselves - capacity resolution isn't the only limiting factor. Another big angle, of course, is extraction. The theory is that the RTX 2060 is less attractive to minors than many other cards. However, this is not currently the case with vitamin numbers. Currently, the RTX 2060 is more profitable than the RTX 3060, but this is due to the extraction of smaller coins. It is true that the RTX 2060 is a less attractive option for the Atrium than the 3060, but it is not the only digital currency you can mine. Also keep in mind that even the RX 6600 XT is being bought by miners and its profitability isn't surprising, so we don't think the RTX 2060 will be any less attractive. In other words, we believe it will continue to be bought for mining. p>
We think the RTX 2060 update is out of the question and expect it to have a significant impact on GPU pricing. It is also unlikely that an update will be available on any MSRP that Nvidia decides. They currently have an RTX 3060 at $330, AMD has a Radeon RX 6600 at $330, and there is a strong used market for RTX 2060s. Nvidia will likely have to set the MSRP below $330, but current market prices for all of the above cards are over $500 — or about $3,060 over $700. Prices are lower in the market. p> GPU will be released in the future. What if...
After all, we don't think the updated RTX 2060 is a bad move, as every little change might help some people buy an affordable GPU. It's also possible that the re-release of the RTX 2060 is a more attractive and better-performing option than Nvidia's version of the RTX 3050 at the same price. They can release the RTX 3050 at any time (a laptop version is available now), so let's break down a little. p>
Based on our latest data, we know that the RTX 2060 is about 17% slower. than the RTX 2060. The RTX 3060 is at 1440p, about 8% slower than the RX 6600. We also know from mobile that the RTX 3050 is built using GA107, or even the RTX 3050 Ti, at least 33% lower than the CUDA core. The RTX 3060 is limited to a 4 or 8 GB configuration due to the 128-bit memory bus (with a lower memory bandwidth to boot). p>
Then in the phone settings, the RTX 3050 ends up between 25 and 35. Percentage slower than the RTX 3060, and often slower than the RTX 2060. If the RTX 2060 is cheaper or easier to produce, the TU106 produces 445 square mm in TSMC 12 nm. e GA107 is less than 200mm 3050 at Samsung 8nm, and while it performs better, it appears to be a better option than the RTX 3050 desktop design upgrade.
There are also rumors. About the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti and other potential upgrades in early 2022, however I don't think producing a very new and expensive GPU - even more expensive than the RTX 3090 - will help much (at least not for gamers). p >
However, one of the most likely competitors to offer and pricing improvement is the AMD Navi 24 GPU design, which we haven't seen yet and is currently expected in early 2022. Currently, AMD has only released their Navi 23 designs, which have an area of 237 square millimeters. from TSMC 7nm and are currently available as mid-range options. p>
Navi 24 is theoretically smaller and cheaper. It would be easier to produce GPUs with MSRP in the $200 range (MSRP raises the real market price on the street in current weather conditions). Since the GTX 16 Super series and RX 5500 XT series at the end of 2019, we haven't seen any new GPUs in this class. Then, of course, Intel Arc GPUs will arrive in early 2022, which is more to do with GPU availability. p>
As far as GPU makers are concerned, a potential solution is GPUs. You can build more and cover new GPU options with a wider price range, but the trend has been slow. As long as the demand for high-quality GPUs remains high, there is little incentive to speed up as more sales are in the companies' interest. Nvidia also has its own LHR program to reduce mining profitability, although miners are slowly moving away from it. A quick fix for what we're seeing now. Companies can't just go to customers and say, "Good people, that's enough, don't buy our GPUs much higher than their MSRP, please just buy at a lower price" - it just doesn't work that way. Street prices are determined by supply and demand, and only when things change will we see prices move. p>
This makes it difficult to answer the question of when the price will fall. Prices have now pulled back from the worst period of 2022, but remained stagnant near the busy year-end buying period, as expected. Personally, it's hard for me to make any specific predictions beyond that, because so many things happen.
However, I think, as I said before, the sadness of GPU pricing is still high. . Cards are now on the shelves at inflated prices, and if this continues for several months, sales will decrease, and this will lead to lower prices. We've seen the market go up and down a few times before, and that's really nothing new, although this time around exceptional circumstances add to this boom period. It's almost certain that premium and high-end cards will cost more than $1,500 in the next generation, but that doesn't mean that cards with prices that cover the entire market won't be available. GPU Price Update
Now let's talk about the current state of the GPU market. Cryptocurrencies are still going strong overall, with most coins, including Atrium, gaining in value in the last month. It has also seen an increase in hardness, indicating that there is still interest in adding GPUs used for extraction to the inventory. Profitability has been up in most months, until crypto has cooled down a bit in the past few days and profitability has remained stable month after month. In other words, 2021 was a very normal month for a GPU pricing program. p>
Street prices for new GPUs were evaluated last week using completed eBay listings, which show that after a few months of relatively stable prices, prices rose in November.
Given what has happened in the cryptocurrency sector, it is expected that the scalpel prices will reflect somewhat lower prices with a slight delay. Nvidia GPUs saw an average monthly price increase of 6%, with the highest increase for the RTX 3090 and RTX 3060 Ti, and the lowest increase for the RTX 3070, which increased by 4%.

However, Nvidia GPUs have continued to sell at the lowest prices we've seen in 2021. Pricing is similar to the level we've seen In August and September, it is lower than the peaks.

On the AMD side, the price has gone up more than Nvidia, which I believe is due to AMD's lower sales volume and no limitations on extraction performance. AMD's Radeon RX 6000 series of GPUs grew 9 percent month-on-month, including major gains for products like the 6700 XT. The 6600 survived because it received most of the price inflation last month. p>
Like Nvidia, AMD GPU prices have gone up over the past few months, but they haven't changed significantly. Prices were lower than what we saw in May and June, which were the heyday for AMD products. Judging by the size of the product, AMD doesn't seem to have much preference for breaking out of a slew of GPUs, with the exception of the 6700 XT, which runs at an affordable price. GPU pricing
is used if there is an increase in new and current generation graphics processors and there are similar increases in the second-hand market. The GeForce RTX 20 series saw a monthly increase of 6% in price each month.
The RTX 2060 Super was the most admired, selling an average of $30 more than the RTX 2070. . All of these GPUs are sold at a much higher price than the boot MSRP.eBay MSRP average price for September, eBay, average October price, average eBay price for November, current November inflation price, October-November inflation rate, GeForce RTX 2080 Ti $1,158 $1,158 $1,102% 1 GeForce RTX 2080 Super graphics card $700804 $786 841 20% 7 GeForce RTX 2080 $700736 $713 $772 10% 8 GeForce RTX 2070 Super 500 $720 722 $768 graphics cards 54% 6 GeForce RTX 2070,500 $650 $676 700 40% 3 GeForce RTX 2060 Super $400 $662 $657 $732 83% 11% GeForce RTX 2060 $350 $514 $535 $543 $55% 1% Average 40% 6% MSRP eBay Price eBay Average price September Sep CE eBay Average price November Current price October-November inflation rate Increase GeForce GTX 1660 Ti $280 $491 $476 $497 78% 4% GeForce GTX 1660 Super $280 $230 494 $486 $520126% 48% $27T 700% GeForce 1650 Super $160 $302 $299 $315 97% 6% GeForce GTX 1650 $150 $262 $266 $263 $263 75%-1% in M Average 93% 5% MSRP eBay Average November-November eBay 1080 Ti price $700 $676 $669 $697 0% 4% GeForce GTX 1080 $600 $459 $464 $508 -15% 10% GeForce GTX 1070 Ti 450 $451 $453 $462 $3% 2% GeForce GTX 1070 $380 $373 $373 $380 $416 9% 9% GeForce GTX 1060 6GB $250 $309 297 $326 30% 10% GeForce $201 $1 7% 10% GeForce $1 1 7 $1 7% 2% GeForce 16 Series is the current range from Nvidia, if we look exclusively at used prices here. Most GPUs have gone up in price, and it's ridiculous that cards like the GTX 1660 Super currently sell for more than $500. I'm hoping the default upgrade to the RTX 2060 and the new Navi 24 GPU will have an impact here, but I'm not counting on that, as the market offers $300. If you're building a new computer and you only have $300 to buy a GPU, unfortunately the GTX 1060 is one of the better products to choose from right now, yet it still costs a lot more than the $250 starting price for the 6 version. GB. p>
When mining profits go up, so does the price of AMD Radeon RX 5000 GPUs, especially the 5700 XT. Surprisingly enough, the 5700 XT currently sells for just over $1,000, which is 2.5 times the MSRP of $400. Overall, these are the highest prices for Radeon RX 5000 GPUs since May, which is no coincidence because cryptocurrency prices are now higher than ever. p>
Older AMD GPUs have also gone up in price. Just like before, the RX 580 GPUs aren't worth buying for gaming compared to the GTX 1060. If you asked me several years ago if we were still talking about the RX 580 and GTX 1060 at the end of 2021, I'd say so. I dreamed, but here we are.September eBay Average Price October eBay Average November November Current Inflation Rate Rise October-November Radeon 5700 XT $400 $865 $943 $1,007 152% 7% $370 Radeon $570920 $163% 13% Radeon 5600 XT $280 $620 $617 $663 137% 8% Radeon 5500 XT 8GB 200 $404 $408 $442121% 8% 4% P2 Game Market 2%p<2% p <2 GPU Pricing Overall, upcomi ng a "solution" to this may be introduced in the form of a new batch of graphics cards in early 2022 - notably the default upgrade of the RTX 2060, AMD's Navi 24 GPUs, and of course the new Intel Arc series. Whether or not it will help bring down the price of the GPU is another matter, but it also cannot harm the situation. During the holidays, GPU prices are unlikely to drop just before Christmas. There was certainly little chance that distributors and AIB would cut prices during this time, as they were able to put pressure on the market throughout the year, and we expect this trend to continue into December. p>
As we reach the final in 2021, what should you do to buy new hardware? p>
Well, if you are building a new PC from scratch or want to get into the game Be PC, there is no choice but to pay huge costs. However, some products have better buys than others. Products like the RX 6600 are among the more valuable purchases, while there are many older used GPUs that you should definitely avoid, like the RX 5700 XT, which are very bloated due to their mining performance. The other two real options are to use a pre-built system (see our picks here) or forget about PC gaming and get a console instead, so you can easily run the system. Get access. p>
These are people. With computers becoming more available, there is now no good reason to upgrade. Most of today's big PC releases run well on older hardware, and titles like Battlefield 2042, for example, are likely to benefit more from a CPU upgrade than a GPU upgrade — even the RX 580 is great at great 1080p settings as long as the CPU Your central is good. It is good enough. p>
Older GPUs are also fine in titles like Far Cry 6, even at 1440p with moderate settings. Sure, the experience isn't as good as it could be, but that's not the case with the current wave of new games being released on older hardware. As we've explained before, ultra settings often don't make sense, and playing on preset settings is visually high or even medium, which makes the game more available on current GPUs. p> GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Amazon GeForce RTX 3070 Ti on Amazon Radeon RX 6600 on Amazon Radeon RX 6600 XT on Amazon GeForce RTX 3080 on Amazon Intel Core i5-12600K on Amazon Intel Core i7-12700KF on Amazon AMD Ryzen 7 5800X on Amazon Amazon AMD Ryzen 9 590X on Amazon
