Digitimes sources believe sales of NVIDIA cards are going to be slow in 2H18 for three primary reasons. First, cryptomining is demand is dropping. Second, vendors have a large stock of current gen cards and don't want to lower prices. Lastly, due to overstock of current gen the next gen will be priced higher to differentiate the product stack. These all seem possible but they do seem to check all the recent rumor blocks. I guess time will tell. Graphics card sales are expected to be significantly undermined in the second half as demand from cryptocurrency miners has been declining, while consumers in the gaming area will continue to wait for prices to drop. With some miners having already begun selling their second-hand graphics cards in the PC DIY channels, demand for new cards is expected to be weakened further.
