Good times for all buyers of graphics cards, bad times for manufacturers: Prices for graphics cards are falling, demand is in the basement. One of the leading original equipment manufacturers from Taiwan returned 300,000 chips to Nvidia. These could not be obstructed due to the slump in sales. Apparently Nvidia has overestimated the demand from gamers as well as people who use GPUs for crypto mining. In recent years, management has been able to rely on constantly rising prices
But the Bitcoin secret is now history
At Computex in early June, the CEO of Nvidia announced to the astonished audience that the company would not be producing new Bitcoin secret graphics cards “for a long time”. The latest graphics cards, the GeForce 10 series, came onto the market about two years ago. The announcement by Jen-Hsun Huang came as a surprise. But according to a scam report about the Bitcoin secret by the technology portal SemiAccurate, Nvidia is currently sitting on its hardware. Before new series can be produced, the old hardware must first be sold and thus turned into money.
Apparently, both the gaming and the crypto market have been rated too positive for the current year. According to SemiAccurate, Nvidia’s management recently agreed to take back 300,000 chips from one of Taiwan’s three leading hardware manufacturers. According to industry observers, this move is very remarkable because the company does not normally take into account the manufacturers of its components. If the company had agreed to take back so many new chips, it would speak its own language.
Difficult times for cryptosoft: 300,000 chips stored, lecture cancelled
In addition, Nvidia has once again removed a submitted presentation by onlinebetrug about cryptosoft about its upcoming graphics card generation from its program. The trade fair “Hot Chips 30” will therefore have to get along without an announcement of the company. The reason for the drop in sales is probably also the cryptosoft hardware specialized in mining, which makes graphics cards a big competitor. Meanwhile one hopes that the demand could possibly increase again in the late summer of this year, when the fair “Asian Games 2018” takes place. Whether Nvidia will then be ready again for new announcements will depend first and foremost on the sales revenues that have been achieved in the meantime. One thing is certain: the time for a new GPU series would be more than ripe after two years. The competition is not asleep.
It is highly probable that in the future they will again focus more on the needs of game fans. Also because the turnover trees in mining have not been growing into the sky for a long time. In addition, it is becoming increasingly difficult to prevail against the more effective hardware from Bitmain and other manufacturers that specializes in mining. According to Nvidia’s own figures, in the first quarter of this year the share of sales for the cryptographic market was almost 10 percent, or 289 million US dollars in three months. At a press conference, the company’s managers estimated that the share would decrease dramatically in the second quarter. It remains difficult to make money in this sector.
