A new Black Friday Sale sees the Asus ROG Flow X13 drop below $1,000. The gaming laptop is now being sold at a massive $600 discount.
How Scalpers and Crypto Miners Affected the Prices of GPUs Due to the Lack of Supply
Amid the pandemic, buying a GPU has become incredibly expensive. This is mostly due to the increased scalpers and crypto miners that have cleared out any available supply of these GPUs.
Since Ethereum decided to change from proof-of-work to proof-of-stake, miners had to give up their GPUs. With the complexity of crypto mining growing and the dropping price of certain crypto, miners have started to flood the market with used GPUs.
Since Miners Slowed Down on GPU Purchases, Used GPU Prices Started to Drop
With miners no longer buying out GPUs, scalpers are the only ones left trying to wipe out stock of the GPUs and selling them at higher prices. However, since crypto miners are selling used GPUs at lower prices, this has also affected the prices of GPUs.
Over the years, buying a GPU has become extremely expensive, so some buyers have decided to stay away from desktops and purchase gaming laptops. Since GPUs were overpriced, buying parts for a desktop was more expensive.
Gaming Laptops Can be a More Affordable Way to Get a GPU Compared to Buying a Desktop
However, buying a gaming laptop would let people get a GPU in the package. The important thing for some gamers is that they could purchase a GPU included in the laptop.
Despite gaming laptops being more affordable, they can still be expensive for some buyers. This is why buying these laptops at a sale is important since it allows them to get them at a massive discount.
