At any point in time if you look back 3 years at what was then a very good video card (but not crazy expensive like > $1,000) how much would it cost to get a card roughly similar in performance 3 years later. How about 5 years.
So a card similar to a GeForce GTX 970 today such as the Radeon RX 590 costs around $180. A Radeon RX 580 is around $160. That GeForce GTX 970 when it first came out cost a lot (I don't remember how much). That's going back several years.
Example - A card similar in performance to a GeForce RTX 2080 equivalent in 2023 would cost how much? How about 2025? When do you think it would cost around $200.
I'm not looking for an exact number, I just want to get a rough idea of the price decline in 3 years and 5 years.
