GPU Retail Prices Continue to Decline in October

October has been a crazy month in the GPU market. Nvidia has launched its highly anticipated (albeit overpriced) GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card, and Intel has launched two new A-series GPUs, the Arc A770 and Arc A750. Those newcomers all sold out, but GPU prices on the best graphics cards in general have continued to drop. That includes most of the GeForce RTX 30-series and Radeon RX 6000-series cards.

Starting with the bad news, Nvidia’s RTX 4090 has suffered a severe price hike to $2,250 for retail availability just a week after the GPU launched. Despite Nvidia’s MSRP of $1,600, consumers ate up all the RTX 4090 supply, with stores selling out almost immediately after launch. That combined with scalpers has effectively depleted all RTX 4090 stock, with the few remaining 4090’s listings being rather overpriced — online resellers joining the scalpers, as it were.
