Graphics Drama at NVIDIA AMD for PC
graphics cards are still more expensive
The technology experts from 3DCenter take a look at the current price situation on the German graphics card market once a month. While it looked in the summer as if the coveted hardware may be available for Christmas to the EIA, the leaf has turned back to September at the latest.
The prices for graphics cards are rising again , even in October – and that, although the models of NVIDIA and AMD were much more frequent than the month before:
The average selling price of NVIDIA graphics cards compared to the EIA is currently 162 percent , with AMD graphics cards, it looks even worse. The RDNA 2 graphics accelerator are traded for around 183 percent of the EIA .
Price decline? Keep dreaming!
With a speedy price decline on the graphics card market is not hoping. Instead, the prices should even increase even further towards the end of the year. The chip scarcity is likely to accompany us at least until the summer 2022 – at this time, however, Nvidia could already present new graphics card models.
And what else happened in the gaming and technology world? We summarize the most important news of the week for you in the AMD improves Headlines:
But there is a small bright spot: Intel. The semiconductor manufacturer wants to enter the graphics card business in early 2022 . If the price-performance ratio of the ARC graphics cards correct, this could provide a price slide at the competitive models. However, that can only work if Intel has enough graphics cards in stock and not purchased it immediately from scalders.
For PC players – and those who want to be – so it still states: wait and drink tea.
