Graphics memory prices have reportedly risen 30% this month

Will this affect GPU pricing?



Read more on the price of graphics memory.

Mining depleting GPU stock, memory price hikes. This sure is a bad time to need to build a new rig. Maybe I can stretch my Piledriver out a few more months. HAHA!

Built my rig a few weeks ago with Ryzen and a plan to upgrade to Vega, but it looks like my R9 390 will have to hold on a little while longer. Although having a super CPU has given my framerate a surprising boost.

i can´t wait for the mining craze to be over.
tons of used GTX 1080 on ebay... LOL.


i bought a 1080ti strix two month ago, shortly after that it costs 110 euro more.
but to be honest price is going down since mid july (at least here in germany).

the 1080 TI did cost 898 euro on july 10.. now it´s at 769 euro.
a GTX 1070 was around 580 euro around july 10.. now it´s around 500 euro.

price / performance wise maybe.

but compared with a 980 GTX they are 10x faster.

but you can get better Mh perfomance per $ that is correct.
