The price of graphics cards continues to drop, both the new and used models that go on sale on eBay. This is what Tom’s Hardware points out, which has compiled current price data for graphics cards today. We are in a stage marked by the departure of many cryptocurrency miners from the sector, which lowers the price of GPUs.

The ebay prices for the most advanced models of graphics cards of the current generation fell by an average of 14% since last June 1, and those of previous generation models fell by an average of 17%. The prices of new graphics cards, sold in conventional stores and online, are not going down as fast, although many establishments try to make noise with supposed graphics card offers, apparently in an attempt to get rid of surplus stock at the highest possible price. However, retail card prices have fallen by an average of 3%, although the prices of some models have risen slightly.

This in June, but since the beginning of 2022 prices have fallen very sharply. 57% on average. At the beginning of the year, the availability of most graphics cards in stores was almost non-existent. GPU mining was still profitable, and anyone who needed or wanted to buy a modern graphics card had to go to online stores selling second-hand or new components. Plus, he had to pay ridiculous prices.

Things have changed already, and there are not many miners who are mining now, because they would do it at a loss. Many miners are trying to get some return on their investment by selling their charts as fast as they can, which is leading to a price crash like the one the market is experiencing.

Most GPUs are already selling on eBay below their recommended price. to the models of Nvidia RTX 3090 Ti, RTX 3090, and RTX 3080 Ti have already joined AMD RX 6900 XT, RX 6700 XT, RX 6600 XT and RX 6600. All with prices between 20% and 30% below their selling price. It is surprising especially in the case of the RTX 2090 Ti, because it has only been on sale for a few months and when it was launched it was over $2,000, but the suggested retail price was highly inflated at launch.

The two 10 and 12 GB models of the RTX 3080, if we assume that the latter has a price of around $800 recommended, are more or less in line with the recommended price. The same goes for the RTX 3070 Ti and RTX 3070. Only the lower-end models of the RTX 20 series tend to sell for more than the starting price. The RTX 3060 Ti 10% more, and the RTX 3050 20% more.

As for AMD GPUs, for comparison, they are all at or below the recommended price on eBay, with the exception of the RX 6950 XT, which also has a retail price 6% lower than what they are asking for. them today on eBay.

In general, the prices of the new cards are higher than those of the cards on eBay. Sometimes quite higher. Apart from the RX 6950 XT and RTX 3080 12GB, you can expect to pay 13% more when buying a new card. In the case of the RTX 3090, 40% is paid for it in the store, and in the case of the RX6600 XT, 32% more. AMD has officially discontinued the latter, replacing it with the new RX 6650 XT. For its part, Nvidia has discontinued the RTX 3090 and replaced it with the 3090 Ti.

eBay’s price review suggests that virtually all GPUs are down 10% from last month. And if we don’t consider the RX6400, RX6750XT and RX6950XT, prices have fallen even more: 14%. For older models like the RTX 3090, 3080, 3070 and 3060 Tias well as the AMD RX6800XT and RX6800They went down even more. These six models lowered their price, on average, by 20%. As for the average selling price of GPUs on eBay, it fell from $736 in May to $614 in June. A decrease of 17%.
