According to Newegg's Best Sellers list, Nvidia has begun dominating graphics card sales across the board since prices began to stabilize a month ago. Newegg's Best Sellers list consists entirely of RTX 30 series products -- with the only exception being an occasional RTX 2060 listing piled into the mix. Radeon cards, both new or old, are nowhere to be seen.
The market situation at Newegg is quite strange, to say the least. GPUs from both AMD and Nvidia have been dropping in price steadily, and AMD even has a distinct edge in pricing in two distinct categories, the ultra-high-end flagship category, and the lower mid-range market. With the RX 6600 outperforming the RTX 3060 12GB in pricing, and the RX 6900 XT outpricing the RTX 3090 as well as RTX 3080 Tis.
From a pricing perspective, there is no reason for any of AMD's RX 6000 series GPUs to not be on the best sellers list, which makes Newegg's best sellers list quite puzzling. If we had to guess, we'd assume Nvidia has superior mindshare over AMD, which would make sense, as Nvidia produces far more GPUs than AMD. However, it is just a guess and should be taken with a grain of salt.
Taking up the number 1 spot in Newegg's best sellers list is Asus' TUF Gaming RTX 3070 Ti graphics card, coming in at $910.99. In second place is Gigabyte's significantly cheaper GeForce RTX 3070 Ti at $699.99.
It's worth noting that the Tuf Gaming just hit the number one spot at the time of this writing and, earlier today, the Gigabyte Gaming model was in the number 1 position, which makes a lot more sense considering its significantly-cheaper price.
Other worthy mentions include the RTX 3070 Ti FTW3 Ultra variant coming in at a respectable (but still overpriced) $759.99, in third place. In fourth place is the Gigabyte Gaming OC Pro RTX 3060 Ti for $599.99, and in 5th position is the MSI Ventus GeForce RTX 3050 for $329.99.

Prices have continued to decline since we last looked at GPU pricing on the site. Almost all modern GPU models from both Nvidia and AMD have seen a minor price decline. Most cards are seeing anywhere between a $100-$50 price decrease even on some mid-range cards such as the RTX 3060, which sees a $99 discount from the last time we looked at RTX 3060 prices.

With all the Newegg shenanigans for years now, I'm just surprised at the number of consumers that still purchase from that site.
Who knew? :oops:
People who would by AMD are waiting for the refresh?Reply

refresh or not people simply buy more nvidia.
I'm on the fence. Have been team green for a long while. Haven't had an AMD card since Radeon 7800 series, They seem to be well priced but all the review sites rag on their RT performance, and even though that is only a small percentage of games, if makes me hesitant. I'm guessing a lot of others are in the same boat. Worried about being burned if RT becomes more important.Reply
Nvidia prices have come down significantly while 6800XT prices remains stubbornly high. Hard to compete with the 3080 if the 6800XT is priced the same.Reply
The 6800XT ref card has an awesome price but it's about as unobtanium as the FE 3080 is.
But the 3080 was phased out - likely artificially - by the 3080 12GB and 3080Ti. The difference in performance between those 3 is small, but the profits from selling the same GA102 chips can't be...magbarn said:The 6800XT ref card has an awesome price but it's about as unobtanium as the FE 3080 is.
Just before the launch of the 4000 series the 3000 series are finally selling for what they should have at LAUNCH. Only fools are buying them now.Reply
NVIDIA sells 4 cards to AMDs 1 card.Reply
That is just pure market share.
Its just that graphics card prices have started dropping . So sales are up.
I need that 12Gb of Vram or more (3d art).Reply
My EVGA 3060 cost me $432 (including tax & shipping). A 12Gb AMD card (RX6700XT) is nearly $600 (including tax & shipping).
And then there is the fact that all of my render engines use Nvidia for raytracing, whereas only Blender can use the AMD card.
In a perfect world, all of my 3d apps would use the AMD proRender engine (it is a better render engine) - alas, we do not live in a perfect world.
I wouldn't say ONLY fools, in some situations it makes sense. There is a lot of imagining to do with rtx 4000. Wacky power connectors, huge power draw, availability? I bought a 3060ti a month or so ago and traded it with a buddy for a 3080. Even in six months when 4000 series comes out the 3080 will still be a great card. Not like a load of new games are being launched with new gpus.Thretosix said:Just before the launch of the 4000 series the 3000 series are finally selling for what they should have at LAUNCH.
