Video cards (GPUs) are used to run calculations that “mine” the crypto. One side effect of the crypto crash that we are seeing… is that the cost of video carrds have been plummeting. While the video card companies have been reaping rewards from supply and demand, now there’s a glut of the supply, and some of the best video cards are now available quite cheap. This is a repeat of a situation from a few years back. It remains to be seen what happens next, but now might be a good time to buy if you do any kind of intensive video work, from editing video to CAD, or even heavy duty gaming.
GPU prices have been declining for months, but the crash from the crypto fallout is finally taking shape as prices fall as much as 50%.
