Nvidia video cards have been getting more expensive for years. In the past five years alone, the average cost of Nvidia 3D cards has increased by 70%



It is now customary to blame the cryptocurrency miners and the shortage of components in the market for the increase in the cost of video cards, but in fact this process has been going on for more than one year. On average, over the past five years, the cost of Nvidia graphics cards has increased by 70%. And this is clearly not the limit.

Believe it or not, Nvidia’s flagship model from 2015, the GeForce GTX 980 Ti, was priced at $ 650. And for this money it was really possible to buy it. This year’s flagship, the GeForce RTX 3090, officially costs $ 1,500, but in reality it sells twice as much. But here the shortage in the market and the appetites of resellers are already to blame, and if we compare the recommended prices, then the growth in flagships is about 2.5 times. Although on average it is, of course, lower.

The rise in prices is inextricably linked to Nvidia’s revenue. For example, the company’s revenue increased from $ 2.6 billion in fiscal 2016 to $ 6.9 billion now.
