Do the price tags on video cards indicate the end of the chip shortage?

Although still largely in short supply, prices for video cards with the most powerful graphics accelerators in the component market have plummeted since the beginning of the year, a good sign for semiconductor supply chain industries waiting for the chip shortage to end, and bad GPU manufacturers bad news for.

Cryptographic mining activity in the GPU market has recently led to significant oversupply, which has been quickly accompanied by a complete decline in the market price of video cards. The phenomenon is still having its effect today, meaning that cards with high-performance accelerators can still only be purchased for a surcharge, but the gap between actual market prices and recommended retail prices set by manufacturers has narrowed significantly this year.

According to some analysts, the so-called. The MSRP mark-up fell from an average of 77% at the beginning of the year to 41% in April, and the German 3Dcenter magazine for two specific models, the AMD Radeon RX6000 and the Nvidia GeForce RTX30, already shows a mark-up of less than 20% at the beginning of the year. compared to. The securities of the two largest market participants began to lose value immediately, among other things, as signs of a balance between supply and demand, with AMD shares losing 37% this year and Nvidia’s 31%.

Although a special area due to cryptocurrency activity, the normalization of the GPU market is seen by some market analysts as the first sign of the end of the chip shortage since 2020, which may be accompanied by a gradual decline in component prices. The results of chip manufacturers’ ongoing tens of billions of dollars / euro production capacity expansion projects could even create a significant oversupply situation, warns Dan Hutcheson, an analyst at TechInsights, quoted by Reuters in his report.
