    Oversized, low information images? Excessive smilies? It must be a dungeon post!

There are obviously exceptions to this, but you'll usually find that are deeper reasons for everything. It's not just that miners were buying them up that prices raised, but that they wanted to help preserve some of their core consumer base. When the mining craze is over, enthusiasts and other non-miners will be the ones still buying their products. Many stores instituted limits on purchasing with the price of gpu's increasing after making a certain amount of purchases in one transaction. This didn't stop the most shrewd of miners, but it did help to allow everyone else to purchase gpu's while letting merchants enjoy a nicer profit from the surge in demand for gpu's.

    The miners aren't buying them as much as before, but enough of the non-miners showed that they were willing to put out money for higher priced equipment. Retail is in business to make money, they're going to take their time in lowering prices to msrp, let alone sales that go below msrp. There's nothing illegal about their current practice since there likely isn't any collusion occurring. Since enough people are buying the products, it'll be tough to make a legal case for price gouging in some areas. This year should see us slowly return to the norms that we're used to in gpus. That, and most of the come-latelies are going to realize that they don't have a real chance anytime soon. It's not always profitable to mine right now, but it people are still banking on major jumps in valuation. If what they believe is true, losing a few dollars today will lead them to dozens or even hundreds of dollars for every buck lost mining right now. A gold rush always brings out the worst in gambler mentality.

    That's way more likelly than miners.
    I sure hope GPU get normalized in 2018, since i'm stuck with an RX 550. It's not a bad card (it actually surprised me positively), but it's an RX 550... I'd like to replace it with an RX 580 8G, but i'm not € 320 for a € 250 card...

    The question persists: what took them so long?
    And a new question arises (for me, at least): with inflated GPU prices for over a year, when are the GPU manufacturers getting investigated?...

    He meant laptop, in case it was not obvious. This is meant to compete with NVIDA "dedicated" laptop GPUs (the low and mid end ones anyway).
