When will the shortage of video cards subside? This year the video card suppliers still cannot cope with the huge demand for equipment. The sales of mining cards by pieces have fallen by 15%, although the market has grown by 129% in monetary volume. Anton Fomin, a business analyst, argues that the difficult situation in the market will remain until at least 2024. However, the time between the video card deliveries will shorten, from 48-50 weeks to 10-14 weeks.
