FALL IN GPU PRICES
The months of February and March of 2022 were quite significant, as for the first time in 2 whole years we can safely say that graphics cards' pricing has shown a significant reduction from their previous highs that were caused due to extreme demand and limited supply, varying from chip shortages, crypto mining and higher export fees (tariff wars). We have seen prices divert so far away from their MSRP the last 2 years that gamers, professionals and the whole globe at most, lost interest in upgrading their gpu or purchasing a new gaming or production PC.
This now has changed by a lot as we have seen crazy high prices of November and December 2021, cooling down in March 2022 where for example an NVIDIA RTX 3080 used to sell for €2000, whereas currently retails at €1399. Same applies to the hugely popular NVIDIA RTX 3060Ti that has seen highs of €1150 and has now dropped to an average of €850. Unfortunately, we have yet to see retail prices divert to their MSRP, but there is still hope going forward.
