This market needs a fairly deep analysis

We have seen during the pandemic how many computers have been sold during the pandemic. Due to telecommuting, the demand for desktop and laptop computers has skyrocketed. At the same time, production was cut back due to a lack of personnel. This generated a brutal hardware shortage, due to the increase in sales and lack of production.

The situation is now the opposite. Production has increased, returning to normality completely, but demand has fallen. A drop in demand that is increased by the rise in the price of graphics cards. The increase in costs, both manufacturing and transport, are generating a brutal increase in the cost of hardware.

The fact that graphics cards are launched with a surreal consumption does not help too much, to be realistic. But in the end, we are in a very complicated situation where graphics card manufacturers increase revenue at the cost of looting users. We will hardly see a drop in prices, since they care about their numbers and going up in the stock market, not that you can buy a graphics card to play.
