Before the expected launch of the new RX 7000 graphics card generation in November, the prices of the current Radeon models have fallen again in some cases, as a price check recently revealed. However, due to the poor exchange rate, German customers do not necessarily feel that they are below the list prices in US dollars and tend to pay a little more than overseas.
Meanwhile, the trend for comparatively cheap graphics cards should continue for the time being due to full storage. As our current graphics card ranking with 24 Radeon and Geforce GPUs in the benchmark shows, some of the current cards are still sufficiently fast, depending on the model. In view of the long period of high prices, the relaxed market situation when buying graphics cards can currently be worthwhile.
Compared to our last market overview from early August, the cheapest available model of AMD’s entry-level graphics card, the Radeon RX 6400, is only 2 euros cheaper (167 euros instead of 169 euros). Nothing has changed with the next best model in the form of the RX 6500 XT, while the RX 6600 is 10 euros cheaper, whereas the XT variant starts at around 395 euros at best.
The RX 6650 XT, 6700 XT, 6750 XT and 6800 are also unchanged, while the XT model from the latter has even become 10 euros more expensive. In the top models, the Radeon RX 6900 XT has also not moved at 885 euros, whereas AMD’s flagship in the form of the RX 6950 XT, which was released in May and is available for immediate delivery from 1,173.97 euros, has become around 30 euros more expensive, but in an outlier offer is currently also available for pre-orders from September for 1,028 euros.
Prices could fall further
The new graphics card generations from Nvidia and AMD can be expected from October and November respectively, but their prices will initially be higher, although the availability situation is still unclear. Depending on the prices, it may be worth taking a look at the mid-range to upper-range models of the current generation of graphics cards, which are currently cheaper than ever and are therefore far removed from the overpriced offers of the past, although the prices for the generation change are still partly a thing downward gradients could tolerate.
