NVIDIA "Pascal" and AMD "Vega" Graphics Card Prices Sizzle Stateside

Over the 2018 International CES week, prices of performance-segment and high-end graphics card prices have taken flight on US-based online retailers. Prices of the recently-launched GeForce GTX 1070 Ti ($380-ish launch price) cards are touching, $900; those of the GTX 1080 (non-Ti) are over the $1,000-mark, while the GTX 1080 Ti is out of stock in many places. Prices of the GTX 1060 series is still under the $300-mark, but are beginning to rise. AMD's Radeon RX Vega family is either out of stock, or over the $1,000-mark. A combination of crypto-currency mining craze, coupled with reports of graphics card prices rising over 2018 could be behind this rally.

when demand exceeds supply the only way to keep stock is to raise the price of the stock so high that nobody wants to buy it.. this lowers demand until demand meets supply.. assuming the shop does actually want to sell something and not just keep stock..

this dosnt mean everyone that wants a gpu will get one.. but it does mean there will always be some available for those prepared to pay whatever silly price is being asked..

there are some fundermental rules at work here and nothing much can be done about it..

Anything above GTX 1060 are non-existent on store shelves in finland .. over one year old used cards go above their initial prices on second-hand sites.. insanity..

It's not like they are opposed to more money. The market will reach equilibrium, mark my words.
But that equilibrium mean TSCM/GloFo/Samsung have to make huge capital invest in more Fab... The problem is they are making wafers as fast as the can and there's not enough capacity. Will Fab's finally see that they'll need to add more manufacturing for mining when it can be an inherently volatile market? They aren't about to get stuck with under utilized capacity. Until mining can prove long-term sustaining growth, we are where we are...

Graphic card prices go up and CPUs drop in price.
Someone needs to find a flaw in GPUs, FAST!
Mechanical HD's and CPU's are both quite cheap atm...timing is important on PC purchases it's always been the case to a extent, but it's gotten a little more severe now that tech has become more mainstream and not just a niche geek thing these days.
