Graphic Cards Are About To See Yet Another Price Increase

It goes without saying that the availability and the pricing of Graphic Cards is absurd in the current state where scalpers wipe the stock clean within seconds. However, if you’re lucky enough to buy a card, you now have to contend with the increased prices due to the tariff changes that took place within the past month.

It has been months since the release of the new Graphic Cards, yet a majority of people still have yet to see a single card in stock at MSRP. The issue started from the lack of stock and scalpers and the Tariff increase aggravated the situation. However, over the past 2 months, Crypto mining has seen a resurgence which has pretty much wiped every single Graphic Card off the market. Reminiscent to the 2017 era, Graphic Cards, in particular those which have a decent hashrate such as the RX 580 and RX 5700XT have seen a 100% increase in value.

According to an article written in Chinese by Xian Ruiu, the cost of DRAM is about to increase, consequently, Graphic Cards using GDDR5, GDDR6, and GDDR6X will see yet another price increase. Storage and RAM can also see an increase in prices due to this.

  1. Tariff is the wrong word to use here, as that indicates a government applied tax and is more infallible than transient costs of memory and other components.
