Earlier this year, outrageous prices were asked for video cards at the height of the cryptocurrency boom. The cycle reversed and cryptocurrencies are now a lot less hot than they were a couple of months ago, resulting in fewer video card sales to miners. While cards are once again available in good volume, the pricing hasn't fully normalized yet.
German tech site 3DCenter did a little digging and created a chart that highlights the evolution of the pricing of the most popular high-end cards, from the end of May until July 15th. Since that date, most cards dropped at least 8 percent, with some like the Radeon RX 570 4GB dropping as much as 18 percent. It's a good trend, but the pricing is still higher than it should be.
