The shortage of GPUs in computers is finally over

Since almost two years ago, PC gamers haven’t been able to buy graphics cards (GPUs). If you’re lucky, rich, patient, or really good at your job. The long wait for an AMD or Nvidia graphics card is finally over.

Nvidia’s RTX GPUs are now available in the US for the MSRP price at Best Buy and other major retail websites. This means that it won’t be long before graphics card prices in Pakistan go back to where they should be.

Graphics Processing Units that are cheap (GPUs)

The Verge found that the MSRP for the RTX 3070 Ti Founders Edition was $599. This was eight hours after Best Buy cut its prices for the week. The Founders Edition RTX 3070 cost $499 and was only available in limited numbers on the website. They weren’t just lucky finds because they were still for sale at the same price the next day.

This also applies to the RTX 3070 Ti and RTX 3070 FE. On AMD’s website, you can also buy the Radeon RX 6750 XT, the Radeon RX 6900 XT, and the Radeon RX 6950 XT for their MSRP. The RTX 3080 can become found for sale for about $700, which is the same price that Nvidia said it would sell it for when it first came out.

How it went down

The recent collapse of the crypto market is a major factor in this change. Since the price of mining GPUs has been going down, miners have started to take apart and sell their equipment. Some GPUs are restocked, which has helped keep the market stable

Not only that, but the demand for GPUs has gone down a little bit because most people are still waiting for the market to get better and for better GPUs to come out. This year, both Nvidia’s RTX 4000 series and Intel’s own desktop graphics processors will be released. Because of this, GPU prices need to go down everywhere in the world.

At last, it looks like the shortage of graphics processing units (GPU) around the world is over, at least for now.
