Prices of high-end NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30-series "Ampere" graphics cards appear to be in free fall as the Summer demand is beginning to wear off, and the supply chain is under pressure to pave the way for the next-generation RTX 40-series. In the worst days of the crypto-mining craze causing graphics cards shortages, the RTX 3090 Ti could be sold for as high as $3,000. It's now down to $1,099 and in stock. The RTX 3080 Ti, which was credited by reviewers as being almost as good as the RTX 3090, can be had for $739. The RTX 3090 (non-Ti) itself is now firmly under the four-figure mark, going for $959. These brand-new cards face competition from two fronts—cypto-miners dumping used graphics cards at attractive prices that gamers are willing to buy; and from AMD's aggressively-priced RX 6000-series high-end, led by the RX 6950 XT at $900.

Good, now my hope is that the price to performance and availability of the entire market is good when new gen lands, so neither can get away with insanity.

1000 dollars/euro's for a videocard is still just insane.
Let me know when the 3090ti is like 750 so I can buy a more reasonable card like a rx6800 for < 350.

The new gpus are still expensive, matching or being slightly under the msrp.
The second hand though are very tempting.

Sorry, but I have been hearing this repeatedly. Here in Latvia the "big drops" never arrived, the basic 3080 still costs ~1k EUR or more on average.

The MSI Gaming X Trio 3090 was $840 at Best Buy yesterday. That's a huge discount.

For what I can see at the moment, atleast here, second hand is not interesting at all, 500 - 600 for the rx6800.
Heck people are (trying to) selling gtx1080ti's for 350....

American ebay has gotten interesting. These are prices the GPUs have actually sold for rather than the asking prices:
I am highly suspicious of those "brand new" 3080 Tis for $499 and $566, though. There's no way those can be real.

3080 Ti from the article is same price as a Strix RTX 3070 here in the Netherlands.

So much for free fall in EU, infact some cards went up in price again.

I will do the absolute minimum I can, to help nGreedia.

Yep, 3080/3090 real prices on the streets are 200-300€ over "what they should be" in Europe. Most people I play with still soldier on with their 1080s, and we won't make a move until prices are reasonable.

Only slightly mined on, with very little artifacting, as new! :roll:

If I could get a brand new 3090 ti for $999 I actually might do it. lol

part of me wants to keep waiting, but another part of me also knows that even before third party seller bot scammers were as big as they are now, we mostly had to wait 2-3 months after initial launches of new gpu's. I expect the same to happen with next gen gpu's but it will be much worse, as the whole business model of third party seller bot scammers has exploded as a business model.

it fucking sucks.

Some models are still holding the high price, i dont think the 4000 series will outperform by much the 3000 series. I think this is a good time to get a graphics card. And keep the money to improve the CPU, ryzen or intel If you are still with an i9 - i7 and Z370 - Z390 chipset.
