A look at how GPU mining affected video card pricing in the EU

Posted on Friday, July 07 2017 @ 12:33:36 CEST by


German tech site ComputerBase compiled some charts to illustrate how the Ethereum boom affected the euro pricing of video cards.

As expected, the biggest price hikes are found for AMD-based video cards. A regular Radeon RX 580 now costs 379EUR, versus 257EUR just two months ago. For comparison, the card's European launch price was 260EUR.

Pricing of NVIDIA cards soared too but at a smaller rate. A GeForce GTX 1070 now costs around 80EUR more, while GeForce GTX 1080 cards cost about 50-60EUR more than two months ago.

As outlined earlier this week, most video card vendors are seeing record sales but worry about the longer-term implications.
