We have already mentioned regularly here that the shortage of components which has strongly affected the industry has had a huge impact on several sectors, especially on graphics cards, where the increase in prices has been one of the most obvious consequences.
However, we have also noticed that, across the market, prices have fallen to values closer to those initially recommended. And the new information indicates that the value of the powerful GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card is already below €2,000 for the first time since August last year.
The GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card already costs less than 2,000 euros
For some time, the price of graphics cards has been falling. And this was long overdue, since gamers and cryptocurrency miners "went Greek" to be able to organize, on the one hand, the available stock and, on the other hand, the equipment at a price at which, as stated in slang, you didn't have to sell a kidney.
Recently we informed that GPUs had reached the lowest value since January 2021. And now the information shows that Nvidia's powerful GeForce RTX 3090 can already be found in Europe at a value below 2,000 euros. Specifically, this high-end graphics card is already visible on sale in Germany at a price of 1,990 euros, which had not happened since August 2021.
This information was collected by the German chain 3DCenter, already appreciated for carrying out these same analyzes of the market price of graphics cards.

This drop should therefore cover the price of these and other graphics cards in other countries as well. On the other hand, a brief survey of some stores in Portugal shows that the value of the GeForce RTX 3090 is still over €2,000 in virtually all models.
