I don't think GPU pricing is reflective of the broader economy, sorry to say. If you see milk, bread or gas doubling in price every 3 months, then that is hyperinflation. This is a sad idiotic situation caused by lack of planning between Nvidia, AMD and TSMC and a lot of bored idiots at home afflicted by scalperitis....That's depressing. Why'd you bring that up?
(sigh, been thinking this for a while, except maybe the BTC part, should have done that a couple years ago)
