GPU price history - GPU come here
I just bought a GTX 1660 SUPER Ghost 6GB GDDR6 for 700€ (wtf). But I need a new GPU this weekend and I "might" return it after that to buy a better offer. Anyway two questions: a) Some1 got site(s) where I can see the price history of gpus'. E.g. I wanna know what this gpu cost 1 year or 3 years ago. (Best would be for € area.) b) Why is the price hike so gigantic between a 1660 (~700€) and a 2080 (>=3000€)?

a) there's a few sites with price history, pcpartpicker comes to mind here's an example and for b), I suspect that 2080 is more efficient mining-wise, so dickheads prefer spending more for bigger reward but also bigger risk

Thanks the site I used only had history for several months - this one has 2 years. I saw someone write a review who was like "nice for 250€" but I thought that review was either for a different gpu or prices really got skyhigh. Xd Price INCREASE of 450€ is insanity.

Go to eBay and sort by "sold".

For some reason whilst the rest of the world had no gpu supply, we (Australia) had tons of 3070/80s, I bought mine in Feb/March and back then still plenty of stock, except only 1 allowed per person, but still we had tons whilst EU and NA had none. Stock is gone now but I wonder why we had such a good supply before.

all the stock must have fell down to you guys.

Must have a pure fluke. It is pretty impossible to buy anything here, a friend of mine has a back channel connection to a buyer from one of the really big retailers here and he hasn't even been able to lay hands on a 3070. I've taken to retro gaming and bought my self an arcade joystick, this then goes with the monster PC I build in the summer that is still running my old Fury X GPU. By this time I am starting to thing I will just give this GPU generation a pass, as I am on principle ain't gonna pay 2x-3x MSRP.

>only 1 allowed per person That prolly kept the miners in their cages.

Mainly, it's because of Ethereum mining crypto-currency. There's 3 basic stuff that devaluates mining: Gas price, Ethereum price going down and increased dificulty, it can be a combination of all these. If the profitability of the crypto-currencies goes up, outweighting the dificulties, the tendency is the prices of the GPU's go even further. However, the more people mining these currencies forces the algorithms to increase dificulty. It has been increased 20% until now, so it's becoming gradually less profitable. Thus, becoming less profitable, the GPU prices will go down, just like when happened in the last crypto-boom. It just a matter of time. Here's an updated link regarding the situation:

gas fees are transaction costs when making a transaction on the ethereum network - not literal gas

When I refer 'gas price' it means the cost necessary to perform a network transaction. The higher the gas price is, the higher potential of profitability the miners get. Summarizing: if the gas prices are on the high and dificulty relatively low, it's very profitable for the miners, thus the demand on GPU's will still grow on this scenario.

I fear new crypto currency will be a long, not to mention that farming is becoming a thing so now storage is becoming premium also!
2021-05-19 17:25
Thanks men. I wonder how long gpus last doing crypto 247/365. Because farmers might get all their cards at some point but then mby need new ones. At any rate nvidia / radeon must be having caviar and e-girls every night.

I would rather buy from "build ur own pc" sites, at least if u buy from them yes you will need to buy whole new pc and u don't build yourself and building it is enjoyable experience

700€ wtf glad i bought a 2nd hand 1080ti in december 2020 for 330€
2021-05-19 13:28
If you wanna have the best odds of getting a gpu at msrp try to get into the bestbuy site before a drop (I don’t know If they are in EU) by seeing if other cards come in stock there before the ones you’re looking for do (bots check with 1 min or so intervals). Don’t refresh the tab to try to get one, just wait. The gpu is reserved once you hit checkout. I was able to get a 3070 for 500$ + tax using this after looking for months. Edit: punctuation

As I said, I don’t know if EU has any bestbuys. This is in my experience the best way because the site doesn’t crash like all the others when you’re ordering

miners also global chip production isn't actually down cuz of covid, its been running at 90%+ capacity almost the entire pandemic its just that everyone is at home so there is a huge increase in demand for chips for consumers, and even the corporate market

I bought 1660S back in late 2019 for 230€ and sold it like 3 months ago for 490€. I thought this crypto shit will be ended by now.
2021-05-19 17:40
are you serious you spent 700 for an old weak gpu? LMAO anyways crypto is falling and so will gpu prices luckily

Wanted to buy 3080 on launch, 699 dollers (over 3k in Poland). Right now the price for 3080 in Poland is 10k+, over 3 times the launch price. It's in fucking sane. Mainly because of cryptos but as of today the cryptos are bursting. Unfortunately it will take months for prices to drop
