In the face of a global chip shortage, plus the return of the cryptocurrency fever recently, the price of graphics cards has been pushed up very high, even sold out. Sadly, this situation will not improve, and the price of graphics cards is likely to be even more expensive next year, as manufacturer TSMC will increase the price of its semiconductor products.

According to a report by the Wall Street Journal, TSMC is planning to increase chip prices by 20%, to balance out the spike in chip demand. Chip shortages aren’t just affecting computer components, like processor chips or graphics cards, but are affecting all other industries, from car manufacturing to iPads.

Currently, there is no official information from TSMC about the product price increase. But according to the WSJ, the increase could be 10% for chips using new technology, and 20% for chips using older technology. Computer processing chips and graphics cards often use the most advanced chip technology, so they can add up to 10% more in price.

We don’t know if manufacturers add this cost to the selling price. But most likely it will be, when the situation of scarce video cards in the market has not been improved.

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 has been out for almost a year, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find any that sell for around $699, the price Nvidia will be selling when it launches this GPU in September 2020. Most manufacturers have increased the selling price of their RTX 3080 versions, but there are still no items for sale.
