Image Generated with Dall-E AI

Since 2019, we have been tracking changing parts prices for RAM, SSDs, Hard Drives, and various CPUs. This data is collected monthly, and then shared on this blog.

Currently, all listed prices are from eBay, for used hardware. We focus on used hardware because these prices change more frequently and this gives a better feel for changes in value.

Back in May of this year we began showcasing graphs with a 12-month timeframe for different types of items. Going forward, we think this will be a better visual representation of price fluctuations and will hopefully help identify pricing trends on the aftermarket.

This month we would like to highlight the 12-month graph for Mid-Tier CPUs:

  • As seen from the graph above, the majority of the mid-tier E5 CPUs can be found well under $100 on the aftermarket. Since November ’21, these prices have been steadily decreasing to get to this point.

  • We currently use the 14-core E5-2680v4 as the standard CPU for more performance-centric systems as you are now able to configure a dual E5v4 processor system that provides excellent performance at a bargain price. Our newest tracked CPU, the Xeon Gold 6138, is the priciest Mid-Tier CPU at this time. We were able to find the cheapest listing at $178, higher than our previous most expensive CPU, the E5-2690v4.
  • At the current rate, we may see the price for the E5-2690v4 dip below $100 by the next quarter. Te listings for this month were a bit pricier than previous, but time will tell if this was a short price surge or something more long-term.
