GPU Prices 2022: Hitting the Brakes

We didn't manage to write a full update in early May, due to the pending launch of AMD's RX 6950 XT, RX 6750 XT, and RX 6650 XT. However, to keep our data collection consistent, we did grab the pricing information from eBay and have updated the tables for current and previous generation GPUs below.

April continued the shift toward more GPUs being available at retail, sometimes for lower prices than what you could find on eBay. There was also a jump in the number of AMD RX 6000-series GPUs sold, along with an increase in the sales of many previous generation GPUs. This suggests a clear beginning of the mining exodus, as miners tried to sell off cards while prices were still high. Alternatively, it might be gamers holding on to older cards finally opting to upgrade. Either way, prices dropped around 15%, month over month.

    "The most desirable cards are now selling for close to triple their official launch prices."And THAT my friends, is why we don't buy sh*t on eBay (aka: Scalper's Haven).
  • exploding_psu
    Me blindly buying a second-hand Vega 56 above MSRP years ago didn't look so bad now
  • Sat32
    This scalping <Mod Edit> needs to end and Nvidia, ASUS, EVGA, MSI, Sony could stop this if they wanted to in a second.
    Years ago I ended up with a DVD exercise program P90 I think, since I didn't want it I listed it on ebay took about 15 minutes for the add to be pulled for copyright infringement.
    I wasn't a authorized dealers and P90 was there copyrighted trademark like Nvidia, ASUS, EVGA, MSI, Sony are all copyrighted trademarks so they do have the ability to stop this.
    People should be able to sell there stuff on ebay and make money but not in this way sucking everything up from every retailer amplifying the shortages for there own benefit.
    Nvidia could simply ask for every add that uses there copyrighted trademarks more then 10% above MSRP pulled down the scalping and bots would disappear overnight.

    Only eBay can stop this in a heartbeat. All they have to do is ban people from selling new graphics cards or game consoles or whatever for 6 months. That’s it. People need to wise up and boycott eBay altogether until they wise up.

    You know what else needs to stop, on eBay? 0 feedback accounts.

    I've been watching Nikon Z6 auctions for over a month and EVERY single one is bid up to around £850. EVERY. Single.One. All tech item prices are seemingly being inflated and that benefits oems, eBay and share holders. It's annoying. It's obvious. It's so obvious, yet most threads are full of people shouting that it isn't an issue and that there's nothing going on.

    Yeah, okay.
  • LolaGT
    It used to be really easy to track on auction sites with a little detective work.
    It has been many years now since ebay hid the bidding IDs so it was almost impossible to confirm it, and of course now that you can't see the obvious, it doesn't happen as far as ebay is concerned.

    Shill bidding in auctions is the deliberate placing bids on the seller's behalf to artificially drive up the price of his auctioned item. Shill bidding has been known to occur in auctions of high-value items like art and antiques where bidders' valuations differ and the seller's payoff from fraud is high.

    Ebay makes far too much money to ever do this willingly.

    Honestly in this climate MS and Sony should just stop selling their consoles for a loss and sell the consoles for a higher price themselves and keep the profits vs allowing these low life scalpers (aka leeches) to make a quick buck.

    GPUs are a different story though, what needs to happen is for all the Cryptocurrency servers to be shut down in China and where ever else they are currently running. Kill Crypto and this whole thing goes away. There is absolutely no reason from Crypto currency ponzi scheme to exist.
  • blacknemesist
    At least mining is getting diminished returns, hopefully it keeps dropping more and more and not only do they stop buying they will need to sell them to cut their losses.
    I would be happy if all gamers boycotted the 3xxx series just to let crypto crappers suffer all the losses but that isn't going to happen,
  • Sat32
    Ebay is making money off the scalpers there is no reason for them to stop it. On the other hand Nvidia and it's vendors are dealing with pissed off customers and losing sales with tie in sales. I suggested a solution to this issue one call from one of Nvidia's lawyers letting ebay, stock-x, Facebook market place know if there products are sold on there sites all sellers will need to be authorized resellers. or they can expect legal action seeking damages for copyright infringment
