The graphics card market is going through difficult times. Global sales of graphics cards are in a downward trend these days and are experiencing a sharp decline. In January, in the Chinese market, we saw a 9% increase in graphics card sales compared to December, but at the same time, we also saw a 42% decrease in sales compared to last January. The changes in the global economy due to the Russia-Ukraine war on one hand and the energy crisis on the other hand have caused an increase in global inflation and living costs, and Nvidia and AMD companies have acted liberally in the pricing of RTX 40 and RX 7900 graphics cards, but apparently The price of these cards in Europe There is a decreasing trend.
Price reduction of RTX 40 and RX 7000 graphics cards
Reducing the price of graphics cards is not something we hear a lot these days. In the Mindfactory retail store, as one of the largest hardware retailers in Germany, the average price of graphics cards in the market is at least 97% higher than the average price of 2020. Currently, the average price of GeForce graphics cards is 825 euros, and this figure for Radeon graphics cards is around 600 euros. Both numbers have increased by 427 and 295 euros, respectively, compared to 2020. Of course, a large part of the growth of this number is due to the high price of high-end graphics cards from Nvidia and AMD in the new generation, and it is clear that users pay more for graphics cards than in the past.

The Hardware.info site has just published its February report on the graphics card market, and it seems that the prices of RTX 30, RTX 40, RX 6000 and RX 7000 graphics cards are decreasing.

AMD’s next-generation flagship Radeon RX 7900 XTX graphics card is currently 14% cheaper than it was in January, but still retails for more than AMD’s MSRP.
