Will GPU prices soon return to normal?



Read more on Ethereum's crashing price.

premature in my opinion, Ethereum mining is still profitable even at that exchange rate in most cases. Personally I predict it bouncing back. I'm holding on to my 0.2 eth

This might put off a few individual people mining, but it might actually hurt more in the long run. Large mining companies will just add more systems to their fleet to compensate.

The only real way to turn off miners is for GPU manufacturers to release really high TDP cards that make it totally not worth mining. That would only add a few dollars per year for enthusiasts, but totally turn off the mining market.

GPU companies don't want to do anything to stop miners; they're selling cards so they're happy. We are not.

Not entirely true... There are many reasons to not be happy as a manufacturer. Go onto GN YT channel, they had a video about it how companies feel about this mining craze.
