We been here before, Ethereum and Bitcoin reach record highs and in turn GPU prices start to increase. As a crypto mania starts to take off again in China. According to a report by Mydrivers, some of the most popular GPU’s are starting to see a increase in price.

There has been other reports of pricing starting to increase in Germany after a period of leveling out as there is more stock available to customers. We are also approaching Q4 with increasing crypto pricing and increase demand for the holiday season. We could be in line for broader increases. Especially if crypto prices continue to rise throughout the holiday season.

Mydrivers supplied a limited report for ASUS and Gigabyte other manufacturers haven’t been listed. But MSI is known to be in tight supply. So we should be seeing price increases over the coming months if this trend continues.

For Gigabyte there seems to be a shortage for the  RTX 2060, GTX 1660 Super, and RTX 3070. Which are seeing increase in price. On the other hand there seems to be a better supply currently of the RTX 3060 Ti, RTX 3060, and GTX 1050 Ti. Which hadn’t seen such a large increase as of yet.

Please keep in mind the GPU increases are currently only in China but we can expect this to start to be more wide spread as we approach the holiday season.

For as long as I can remember, I had always had an interest in computers and games. It all started with the SNES and moving on to the Playstation 1. Eventually this passion evolved into PC gaming. With playing my first competitive game being Battlefield 2142 and then moving into COD4 Promod. I have always been a keen PC builder and enthusiast but couldn’t afford to go after this passion until later in life.
