Finding GTX 1060, 1070, 1080 both online and store front for reasonable price results are “Out of Stock”.
Those that are available asked at crazy coins at $1,120- for GTX 1080.
The one that ship from Hong Kong is at reasonable price but this will be a trouble for warranty claims.
Should I wait for the dust of “coin rush” to settle down or should I jump in the mine and say “me too”?
You should definitely wait.
I strongly believe that the bubble is going to explode soon and when it does, those graphic cards will go straight back to the market as used cards and the prices of both new and used ones will fall considerably.
In Thailand, “Coin rush” is real, those Coinmine, BitCoin, Dogecoin and etc.
Your area don’t believe in coins? So good!
Only GTX 1050 and 1050TI level graphic cards and lower are only available and reasonable here.
Its not just Nvidia cards, but also ATI cards. All RX 560, 570, and 580 are out of stock right now. I barely got my RX 580 for about $300 which is $50 over MSRP but now they are selling for over $400 now. I think it will be like this for another year or so, or unless the bitcoin crazy bubble burst. Hope it will be soon.
Yup! Some news site say wait for the March new GTX 20XX class GPU from NVIDIA if you plan to buy it in he future.
But those miners will queue for those cards again.
Just saw another articles;
Very depress right now, with this price, I would better buy new laptop with GTX1080 inside.
