As someone who buys a lot of used GPUs, I think this is really neat. I understand a lot of people would hesitate to buy a used GPU, but since the mining craze the used GPU market has actually evolved quite a bit and there are some sort of unwritten standards that have become prevalent. For example, it's rare for me to buy a used card these days that doesn't come in near-perfect condition with new paste and pads. Given that GPUs (and CPUs for that matter) almost always last longer than their useful lifespan, it makes a lot of sense these days to consider used GPUs as a totally viable option. 

 

Newegg sells these GPUs as "certified refurbished". This is really the icing on the cake because it creates a whole new force of pressure on GPU prices. The prices they sell these GPUs for ranges from very reasonable to completely absurd. ~$350 for a used 3070, but there is a 2080Ti listed for ~$800. I'd imagine this will evolve over time. What's more, the site doesn't filter out these listings by default, meaning when people look for a GPU on newegg, they will see these listed along with new GPUs unless they manually filter out the used ones. These used cards come with a 90-warranty from newegg.

Price wise, what they offer isn't bad but it's not as much as a seller would get from selling a GPU on ebay. Newegg offers 209$ for a 3070 and on ebay they usually go for about $300. Minus ebay fees, the seller would make about $260. On the AMD side things are a bit further off. An RX6800 would go for about $380 on ebay, seller would get about $330. Newegg only offers $255. All and all, seems like a pretty good option for Nvidia users who don't want to bother with ebay, while AMD users should probably stick with ebay.

This is really interesting actually, and I'm glad it goes back more than just one generation.

Other than getting lowballed by $50-200 for your trade-in value (which is to be expected), I think the biggest concern with this program today is consumer trust in Newegg.

 

Imagine saying that 10+ years ago.

I think their issues were pretty short lived. I remember Newegg going down hill for a little while, but that's all be resolved.
