1080 Ti's - I must have missed the memo

Sorry if this post is stupid but I purchased my Zotac 1080Ti in the fall of last year it was I believe for like $700. Why are they so crazy priced now?

That must be a big rock! :)

Cryptocurrency mining + Shortage of memory price's driving up bill of material prices. Affecting most GPU's, not just 1080Ti.

Ugh, yea...huge rock. Thanks!

Are the predictions that it will last all year?

I have seen some price drop recently when bitcoin went down to around 9000, but I do not know if it will continue.

What a gneiss rock. :)

Predictions right now are basically "Who Knows?" Companies are preparing launches of future products (Volta/Navi), and RAM producers are making next gen GDDR6 for GPUs. It's possible that these releases help the market... but they could also end up like Vega and have not enough supply to make a difference.

There is also the volatility of the crypto market to consider. Spikes and falls in that market will also affect demand from potential and existing miners. New ASICs, regulations, bannings, or other factors can also drastically change the crypto market and thus the GPU market.
