Graphics Cards Prices to Decline 20% in July – NVIDIA Postponing Next Gen Launch?

DigiTimes is reporting that there will be a decrease in graphics card pricing for July. This decrease seems to be a way for suppliers to reduce inventory of stockpiled graphics cards that were expected to be sold in continued demand from cryptocurrency miners and gamers. DigiTimes, citing "sources from the upstream supply chain" says that we can expect a 20% price drop for graphics cards. Also semiconductor manufacturer TSMC and its partners are expecting revenue estimates to be lower than previously-projected values, as demand for graphics and ASIC chips is further reduced.

NVIDIA Tells Retailers To Sell GPUs To Gamers, Not Miners

Cryptocurrency mining is something that flourished in 2017 and it does not look like it is slowing down in 2018. With Cryptocurrency miners grabbing up all of the available graphics cards it is really hurting those who want to build their own gaming PCs. If you haven't noticed graphics card prices have sky-rocketed over the past couple of months. I simple search for a GTX 1080 Ti returns cards going for $1200-$1400 on Amazon!
