Nvidia GPU prices to keep on growing through Q3 2018

It is quite sure that some addicted players may struggle to get their favorite GPU. GPU pricings are getting out of control, and there are different causes for sure. One of them is because of the cryptocurrency miners, which are causing the most significant loss of value to gamers.

Nvidia has claimed that the prices will still grow in a recent talk to Massdrop. According to them, the prices will keep on growing because of two reasons, and there’s no one could do anything about it.

As they have said, the two main reasons are because of the mining and the VRAM shortage. It is quite sad that lower budget PC gaming fans will have a rough time in building their beasty PC. As we know, all this crypto mining situation is getting out of control, for which no one can control nor stop miners from buying the most expensive GPUs, even neither NVIDIA nor AMD.

As a gaming community and website that promotes gaming in the first place, we’d love this to end, however, we’re just another blank factor since Nvidia and AMD cannot deal with the same in first place. As previously mentioned, Nvidia does not have any control over the market itself, so it all comes down to a common sense of those who tend to mine cryptocurrencies.

On the other side, as DSOG has claimed, Samsung and Apple are willing to pay more for the memory that will be used in their smartphones. Tough times are upon us, gamers, and sadly, we do not see any ways of avoiding them.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
