Graphics card prices in Europe are now on average 2-6% higher than recommended, but there are exceptions

The life cycle of the generation of GeForce RTX 3000 and Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards is coming to its end.
And only now their average price is as close to the recommended (MSRP), says the latest data from the portal 3DCenter, which monitors the market for graphics gas pedals in Germany and Austria.Image source: VideoCardzThe portal 3DCenter began analyzing the graphics cards market since January last year.
The coronavirus pandemic, the associated shortage of components, the transition of the economy to a hybrid remote working from home model, high demand and the simultaneous rise in cryptocurrency prices - all this ultimately led to the most prolonged increase in the price of graphics cards in history.
Nevertheless, the market is slowly coming back to normal.
Some graphics card models are now offered not only at the recommended price, but even cheaper.
However, some models are still sold at prices by 20-30% more expensive than the recommended price.The most popular models Radeon RX 6700 XT, RX 6800, RX 6800 XT and GeForce RTX 3060 Ti, RTX 3070 and RTX 3080 still sell significantly more expensive than their recommended prices.
And yet the markup on them has also decreased - from an average of 23% to 17% over the past three weeks.
At the same time, flagship and entry-level models are often sold below the recommended prices.

The flagship model GeForce RTX 3090 has the smallest markup - it is offered on average by 2% more expensive than the recommended price.
GeForce RTX 3080 12GB model sells on average 5% more expensive.
