Due to Crypto-Mining many Gamers are suffering from the shortage of Graphics Cards, Graphics Cards from GTX 1060/RX 480 to GTX 1080Ti are out of stock in the most markets,online stores and the ones which are available mostly selling for too much than they worth.
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti is widely available in the markets of Pakistan and around the globe with the pricetag of 26,500PKR+ (270USD) while Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 6GB is selling for 45,000-50,000PKR (500USD) and AMD Radeon RX 580 is selling around 55,000-60,000+PKR (600USD). It’s been a while when the mining fever wiped the Graphics Cards from the market and online shops, The Gamers who are looking to build a PC are always on the lookout for GPUs but found none in a reasonable price most of time.
To tackle this situation Nvidia is selling their Graphics Cards online in limited quantity for a pretty reasonable price but Gamers in Pakistan can’t buy them directly from Nvidia’s website. Nvidia also requested the retailers to only sell GPUs to the Gamers and they will be starting the mass production of GPUs in the 3rd Quarter of 2018 and hopefully the GPUs will be available again in the market in the Q4 of 2018 if things goes as planned.
Hopefully AMD and Nvidia will do something about the current situation and Gamers around the globe would soon get their hands on the desired Graphics Cards.
