Even in February 2021, gaming graphics cards will remain an expensive pleasure. Whether it is Ampere or RDNA2, current pixel accelerators are hard to come by, although many had certainly hoped for wider availability in the New Year. The chance of an ampere graphics card was even higher last month than it was these days: Geforce RTX 3080 models are currently no longer even listed in the price comparison.
The Geforce RTX 3060 Ti only appears once – as a non-available Gigabyte Vision OC for 1,182.70 euros. As a reminder: Nvidia gives 399 euros as the RRP of the Founders Edition. Since retailers had not reported every new delivery to the comparison portals in the past, it can be assumed that the actual availability is higher.
The colleagues from the 3D Center, who had checked various e-tailers yesterday, could not find any goods in stock, even in retail.
The price comparison for the Geforce RTX 3070 delivers 17 hits, nine of which are available in stock. At the lower end of the price structure is the Gigabyte Geforce RTX 3070 Gaming OC for 889 euros – at the top a custom design from MSI that cannot be delivered for 1,754.80 euros. At this point, too, we would like to remind you of the recommended retail price of the Founders Edition, which is 499 euros.
The Geforce RTX 3090 is currently available in nine different versions, three of which are available.
The price range – RRP are 1,499 euros – from 2,169 to 3,314 euros.
Radeons are also very expensive
It doesn’t look any better on the Radeon side. Our price comparison lists the Radeon RX 6800 twice: not available as XFX Speedster for 949 euros and, in stock, as Asrock Phantom Gaming for 1,159 euros. AMD’s recommended retail price is 579 euros.

Interestingly enough, the Geforce 6800 XT is cheaper than the only available Radeon RX 6800 in one case.
The Asrock Radeon RX 6800 XT “already” changes hands from 1,149 euros. Four of six models are available, with a gigabyte Aorus Master topping the list at 1,695 euros. Idle to mention it again, but the MSRP is 649 euros.
The (actually) 1,000 Euro top model can be found in our price comparison eight times as a listing and four times as an actually available model. It starts with the MSI Radeon RX 6900 XT Gaming X Trio from 1,549 euros, which is actually available. A retailer estimates 2,433 euros for the XFX Speedster Merc 319 Radeon RX 6900 XT Black Gaming – but only pre-orders are possible there.

The 3D Center has determined that graphics card prices have actually increased over the past two weeks.
The prices for the Radeon RX 6800 and 6800 XT as well as the Geforce RTX 3070 and 3090 have increased between twelve and 19 percentage points in the last 14 days compared to the list price, with the Radeon RX 6900 XT pulling the average down by only four percent. In terms of the cheapest street price, the price exaggeration beyond the Radeon RX 6900 XT is now at least +48 to 80 percent.
