Sales of video cards fell by more than 50% in retail stores in North America and Europe.
The recent “cryptocurrency boom” not only provoked a significant increase in sales of new graphics cards last summer and in winter, but as a consequence, a serious drop in the market at the moment. On the difficulties of the company TUL/PowerColor sales “red” the video we reported a few days ago (by the way, these days on the American marketplace NewEgg mining card PowerColor Radeon RX 580 8 GB was offered for a ridiculous $200), and now similar news came from the opposite camp.
According to the publication Barron’s, citing report analyst at BlueFin Research Partners Paul Peterson (Paul Peterson), sales of video cards fell by more than 50% in retail stores in North America and Europe. The report says: “Nvidia was surprised by the fact that the demand from gamers has not recovered, despite the decline in prices” and “Nvidia is putting pressure on suppliers and manufacturers of graphics cards to further reduce prices.”
The main factor driving such actions is the desire to sell the existing inventory of graphics cards architecture Pascal and prepare the market for the upcoming new generation of accelerators. In addition, Mr. Peterson noted the disappointing sales of video cards with chips from AMD and the absence in the foreseeable future the prospects for fixing it.
