Recently, the graphics card market has been affected by the decline in GPU costs and the decline in demand for cryptocurrencies, and prices have continued to decline. According to data, the price of graphics cards has been the lowest since January 2021. According to media reports, the board leader ASUS expects to reduce the price of graphics cards in April.
Foreign media “TomsHardware” reported that GPU prices, whether NVIDIA or AMD, are on a downward trend, even the lowest prices since January 2021, and graphics card prices have also loosened. An email from ASUS, a major domestic board card manufacturer, confirmed that the price reduction of graphics cards will begin in April, covering entry-level, mainstream and high-performance graphics card models.
Foreign media have reported that since entering 2022, the average prices of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 series and AMD Radeon RX 6000 series have declined, and the price trend report shows that neither Huida GeForce RTX 30 series or AMD Radeon RX 6000 series will drop to January 2021. The lowest in the month, in addition to the graphics card supply situation which is the best since the beginning of 2021 and continues to improve, retailers in North America or Europe have more stocking, and the demand for cryptocurrency has decreased recently, and the demand for mining graphics cards has decreased.
ASUS is one of the largest graphics card brands, and this price reduction plan is quite valuable for market reference. In January and April 2021, ASUS raised the price of graphics cards on the grounds of tariffs, components and high market demand, and then led the price trend of the graphics card market. At present, ASUS graphics cards have two product lines, NVIDIA and AMD, and there should be Intel graphics cards next. But this price cut announcement only mentions NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards.
Although the reason for Asus’ price reduction is tariff adjustment, it should not be the only reason. In addition, the price reduction is not a one-off, and not all manufacturers have reduced the entire range of products. It remains to be seen how much the price of terminal products will drop. Combining all aspects of information, the price of graphics cards will gradually fall in the future, which seems to be an inevitable trend.
