It should have a massive price decrease, but when many paid too much for their inventory? The warehouses and importers get like a 3-5% cut off the hardware and make their money from moving mass volume, taking that sort of loss would ruin them and the repercussions across the supply chain I don't even want to think about. Nvidia is dicks to them because they are the problem in more cases than not. They are dicks but they aren't assholes.Actually, that's exactly what should happen. Old tech should have a massive price decrease. Incoming parts should be faster and cheaper. "Cheaper" being a relative expression of stating that for the same level of cost as the previous generation buyers are getting a higher performing card. Meaning at a lower cost users should be able to buy something that was at minimum equal to a higher tier product.
An i5 today, destroys a Xeon from 2010. Prices go down, performance goes up.
What nVidia should be doing is giving their board partners rebates and releasing the new product stack at similar pricing to the old product stack. That's what every other market does and what nVidia used to also do. But as we know, they have become bigger dicks towards their board partners (eating all the margin without any recourse) and they are holding onto crypto pricing for as long as possible.
