Following on from five straight months of price increases, it seems that GPU prices are finally on the decline again across Europe. According to new data gathered, the average sale price for AMD and Nvidia GPUs has dipped over the course of January, although we are still far from getting down to MSRP levels.
The data gathered and shared by 3DCenter.org until January 23rd shows that the average best price of Nvidia graphics cards is 77% more than their MSRP, an 8% reduction compared to the data from January 2nd. As for the AMD Radeon RX 6000 series, the best prices are about 67% higher than their MSRP, which translates into a 10% cut compared with January 2nd.

The Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti card had the smallest price reduction (2%), while prices for the RTX 3090, 3080 10G, 3070 Ti and 3070 were reduced by 7-9%. As for the RTX 3060 series, the Ti variant reduced by 12% and the RTX 3060 by 15%. As for the AMD Radeon RX 6000 series cards, Radeon RX 6900 XT prices remained fairly steady. However, all other RX 6000 series cards had a 12-18% price cut.
As cryptocurrency keeps devaluing, prices should reduce even more. With Ethereum going as low as $2200 and proof-of-stake coming in June, there's a chance that GPU prices will continue to trend down.

KitGuru says: It is still too early to know for sure, but the current decline in crypto could have a pretty major impact on the GPU market in the months to come.
