Sooner or later, the value of Bitcoin should fall. This will lead to the fact that mining will become unpopular, and miners will dump tens of thousands of video cards on the secondary market at great prices. At the same time, manufacturers must deal with the shortage of graphics chips. And then there will be powerful models for budget gamers, and prices will begin to stabilize.
It was a moment of optimism for those who still believe in miracles, because after the latest news, it’s time to stop hoping for an improvement in the situation for many months to come. So, even if everything that we wrote above happens, there will be no cheap video cards, because the market is faced with a shortage of GDDR6 video memory
A sharp rise is expected after the Chinese New Year in February. As soon as it is over, manufacturers will raise the prices for the shipment of memory, and then the selling prices for ready-made video cards will jump. It is clear that we are talking about the GeForce RTX 3000 and Radeon RX 6000. This is where this type of memory is used.
By the way, a range of high-tech products have been reported to rise in price, from laptops to projectors, wearable electronics and more. It is unclear how much the cost will jump, because a lot will depend on specific manufacturers, many of which will try to smooth out the effect in an already problematic market.
