Black Friday GPU deals: FAQs

When will Black Friday graphics card deals start?

Black Friday this year will fall on November 25th. While we do see the majority of Black Friday gaming deals hitting the shelves in the week leading up to this big day, the best of the best are reserved for the main event. That said, you'll still find a spattering of discounts running from the end of October that have the potential to be Black Friday-level. 

Where will the best Black Friday graphics card deals be?

Unfortunately, we don't yet know whether any of the popular online retailers are planning RTX 30-series or AMD Radeon 6000 restocks at this time ahead of Black Friday. However, we're hoping, given the rumors of Nvidia possibly resurrecting the RTX 2060, that previous generation GPUs could be cheaper than what we've seen throughout 2022 so far. This is what you can currently expect from all the biggest players on Black Friday right now. 

With the new 40 series cards being thrown into the mix so close to the sales too, it makes us even more uncertain as to what deals we will see. This could mean price reductions on the 30 series, should larger retailers stock the cards.

What to expect from Black Friday graphics card deals in 2022

Black Friday graphics card deals

Black Friday graphics card deals are going to look at lot different in 2022 - and in a good way. Last year we saw barely any prices scratched below even their inflated costs, such was the state of supply and demand. However, we're not only seeing plenty of RTX 30-Series cards regularly hitting, and sometimes dropping below, MSRP right now, but the new generation is entering the market now. That means retailers need their old supplies gone fast, which spells big discounts for the likes of us. 

It's still tricky to predict what we'll see when those Black Friday graphics card deals do emerge, though. It's been so long since we've enjoyed unrestricted access to the latest GPUs, the market's level can't quite be gauged as easily. However, now that graphics cards aren't being snapped up by crypto miners (thanks Ethereum), we're expecting a supply that far exceeds anything we've seen in recent years. Because cryptocurrencies aren't relying on these GPUs anymore, it's us everyday folk buying them up. That means retailers are happier keeping their prices low and need to compete even more for a smaller market of demand. 

That's already left us with hundreds of dollars and pounds off graphics cards that were impossible to buy this time last year, and things are only going to get better. We'd recommend keeping a close eye on RTX 3070 and RTX 3080 models in this year's offers, for the highest value savings. 

Last Year's Black Friday graphics card deals in the US

Yeston Radeon RX 6800 | $1,700 $1,399 at Newegg
Save $350 -
While this was over-the-odds considering the original price of the RX 6800, you would've been getting performance comparable with the RTX 3080, not the Ti variant, for your money here. Considering just how spiked the market was during last year's sales, this was honestly one of the better rates around.

Yeston Radeon RX6800XT 16GB D6 GDDR6 | $1,569 $1,539 at Newegg

Save $30 - It wasn't anything close to inexpensive, but it was a tough-to-find card. Also, it came with an anime waifu printed onto the backplate which, uh, could be a positive or a negative depending on your own aesthetics.

Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3060 Eagle 12GB GPU | $794.99 $767.23 at Newegg

Save $27 - There was a little bit of money to be saved here, though the discount may not be quite as good as it sounds since prices for the standard version of these cards start at $329.

Image (opens in new tab)

ASRock Radeon RX 6900 XT Phantom D | $1,599.99 $1,499.99 at Newegg

Save $100 - If you were on the hunt for an AMD graphics card, this would've got you a top-of-the-line model at a modest discount off the standard seller's price - but don't overlook the extra goodies you would've got for free, including a month of Xbox Game Pass for PC.

Image (opens in new tab)

MSI Gaming GeForce GTX 1080 Ti (refurbished) | $1,100 $1,079.99 at Amazon
Save $20 - It's still a more than capable graphics card all these years later, and while you're missing out on RTX features such as DLSS and ray tracing, you'll be able to get some impressive benchmarks out of games in 1080p and 1440p.

Last Year's Black Friday graphics card deals in the UK

PNY GeForce RTX 3080 Ti 12 GB XLR8 Gaming REVEL Edition | £1,900 £1,700 at Currys

Save £200 - This PNY XLR8 Edition RTX 3080 Ti GPU was one of the fairer prices we've come across on partner cards recently. It should be stated, that while a substantial markup, you would've got this model at its respective RRP, despite being higher than the FE model. 

Image (opens in new tab)

GIGABYTE Radeon RX 6900 XT 16 GB AORUS MASTER Graphics Card | £1,600 at Currys
Save £120 - This price drop was the lowest price we've seen since it went up for sale, with previous prices never quite touching the £1,500 mark. Aorus edition aftermarket cards tend to run substantially higher than the base models regardless, so if you're interested in their feature set for extra then it could be worth it.

Image (opens in new tab)

Palit GeForce GTX 1050 Ti | £238.99 at Amazon
It's not a deal, but this was one of the cheaper 4GB graphics cards on the market that wasn't priced too absurdly. You can expect solid 1080p performance in even the latest games with a few sliders considered.
