GeForce RTX 3080, GeForce RTX 3070, Radeon RX 3090, Radeon RX 3080 and many other video cards will rise in price in the near future



The next generation of Nvidia and AMD graphics cards is a real pain for ordinary users. Not only are they difficult to buy, but also prices are constantly rising. First, due to a shortage of production, then – because of the rushing to new heights of bitcoin and the associated high demand from miners. There are also problems with logistics and customs due to the epidemiological situation in many countries. And now a new misfortune is the lack of memory chips. And it doesn’t matter whether we are talking about GDDR5 or GDDR6 – both are lacking.

According to the source, the rise in price of budget video cards due to memory chips has already happened, and in February we are waiting for the second stage, it will affect models of the middle and higher levels. The source characterizes the situation in the Chinese home market, but it will clearly affect all countries, the only difference is in the time of the effect. In China, price increases for 3D cards are expected after the local New Year, that is, in mid to late February. In other countries and in other territories, prices may rise later, but there is no doubt that devices will rise in price again.

The level of the rise in price is not specified, but it is unlikely that it will be even ten percent. At the same time, it should be noted that the cost of video cards is already greatly overestimated, and even one or two percent of the increase will be sensitive for users.

Interestingly, the price hike is predicted not only for desktop video cards: mobile versions will also skyrocket in price. This means that laptops will also become more expensive, especially gaming ones.
