The market is almost cleared of video card resellers - consumers have gone to the stores

The time of domination of speculators in the graphics gas pedal market has come to an end, writes PCMag.
At least for now.
The interest in buying graphics cards from the hands of consumers has decreased significantly, and with it the resale value of gas pedals has fallen.Image source: PCMag \"Everybody's sick of videocards,\" - said in a conversation with the publication of one of the resellers videocard.For examples do not go far.
Enough just look at the statistics of online trading platform eBay - one of the fiefdoms of speculators.
Over the past year, the average selling price of NVIDIA graphics cards has fallen to almost the recommended prices for these gas pedals.
The average selling price of a GeForce RTX 3070 on eBayInstead of buying on eBay, it is becoming more profitable to simply go to your local electronics store and purchase a brand new graphics card at a retailer's price, especially since major retailers Newegg and Best Buy have greatly improved their availability.
And for some models the retailers even offer a discount and as a result the cards are even sold below the recommended prices.
Even used gas pedals are more profitable to buy from the same Amazon Warehouse, and not go to eBay, where many miners are trying to get rid of graphics cards on the wave of plummeting cryptocurrency market, says PCMag.
The average selling price of GeForce RTX 3080 on eBay \"Yes, the reseller sphere is effectively dead.
Sales, of course, are still going on, but at much lower prices.
For those same miners, it has become much harder to get rid of their inventory,\" commented representatives of Falcodrin Stock Alerts service, which monitors new arrivals and availability of video cards in various retail outlets.In online communities of resellers similar atmosphere.
\"The graphics gas pedal market has come to an end.
PS5 consoles only bought well into the New Year,\" complained one reseller.
\"Rest in peace graphics cards,\" added another.
Graphics card prices at NeweggThe only exception are the reference versions of NVIDIA Founders Edition gas pedals, particularly the GeForce RTX 3080, RTX 3070 and RTX 3060 Ti models.
In this version graphics cards are sold at the lowest prices.
In other words, resellers can still make a profit from reselling them.
However, these graphics cards are hard to get.
In the U.S., the only retailer that sells NVIDIA Founders Edition gas pedals is Best Buy.
New shipments of these graphics cards usually occur every month, but immediately dispersed.Instead of video cards, resellers are beginning to focus on other resale items, for which at the moment there is still a rush.
NFT tokens, for example, are one of them.
One of their resellers, by the way, who is still in high school, told PCMag that he has decided to stop reselling game consoles and instead focus on selling non-interchangeable tokens.
\"NFTs are a really cool thing.
I like them because all the sales happen online.
Besides, they make a lot more profit,\" said a young Ostap Bender of western tailoring.The decline in interest in video cards from resellers plays into the hands of regular gamers who are considering upgrading their PCs.
Computer hardware manufacturers, in turn, predict a further decline in graphics card prices and a surge of interest in self-assembly of computers.
This opinion is held, for example, by Corsair, which believes it will happen in the second half of this year.
The current situation in the cryptocurrency market also acts in favor of the forecast.
However, the demand for graphics cards can grow significantly again, as NVIDIA and AMD are going to release a new generation of gas pedals in the second half of this year.
If demand is high enough and availability is low, then resellers may again turn their attention to the lucrative market.
