Cheaper AMD and Nvidia GPUs are not yet available. There are no enough supplies to meet the rising demand of the companies' consumers. One of the main reasons behind these popular graphic card brands' increased prices is the hoarding of crypto miners.
Blockchain experts explained that if people want to have more cryptocurrencies, they need to have lots of GPUs to generate enough power, allowing them to mine more digital coins.
As of the moment, it is still hard to conclude when these miners would stop hoarding GPUs from Nvidia, AMD, and other big brands. However, these hoarders could soon be reduced as China, one of the largest countries which blockchain transactions are happening, decided to ban cryptocurrencies.
Cheaper AMD, Nvidia GPUs To Arrive
According to GameRant's latest report, The People's Bank of China and the Chinese government announced that crypto mining exchanges are already illegal in the country.
Various tech experts and enthusiasts explained that as the crypto miners in China slowly disappear, the GPU shortage would also be solved.
This means that fewer people would be using bots to hoard graphics cards for digital currency mining. Once that happens, regular consumers could now have better chances of having their own Nvidia or AMD GPU model once that happens.

They are restricting blockchain transactions since government officials claimed that cryptocurrencies could lead to money laundering and other malicious campaigns. Here are some nations that are currently banning the use of cryptos:
