The company has now clarified that the issue is that gamers have started buying higher-end graphics cards, which are more expensive than their previous graphics accelerators, even when measured at the recommended price. For example, if a user bought a GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card in 2016 with a recommended price of $400, in 2021 he has already chosen the GeForce RTX 3080 model, the recommended price of which is only $700.

In reality, of course, he had to pay even more for a new graphics card – the same RTX 3080 is now selling for an average of $1250. This shows how much gaming hardware and graphics cards in particular have risen in price in recent years. At this rate, PC gamers really need to be renamed PC boyars.
