In November, video cards significantly increased in price, and this applied to all adapters, both AMD and Nvidia. More than a month has passed since then, the Christmas season has come, and there have been reports of price increases directly by video card manufacturers. Have the prices become even higher in retail?
As it turned out, they even decreased for some models.

In general, the situation is not very different from the November one. We can note the emergence of more accessible lower cards. Both the RX 6600 and RX 6600 XT and the RTX 3060 have dropped in price. But the top adapters need to be considered more specifically.
Also, the price advantage of AMD cards will remain for now. The same RX 6600 XT offers more performance than the RTX 3060 and costs less. In a pair of RX 6900 XT and RTX 3090, the price difference is generally twofold. Unfortunately, all of these prices are well above the recommended prices.
