Graphics Card Memory Modules like GDDR5 and HBM2 and more have risen by 30% in price. Increasing Demand of GPUs because of the Ethereum mining craze and the release VEGA GPUs has not been able to keep up with the supply, hence the price spike.

Samsung supplies 55% of the worldwide GPU RAM shipments, followed by Hynix at 35%, and Micron Technology at 10%. GTX 1050 uses 2GB GDDR5, GTX 1050 Ti uses 4GB GDDR5, GTX 1060 uses either 3GB or 6GB GDDR5 modules and finally, GTX 1080 Ti uses 11GB GDDR5. Similarly, AMD’s RX 560 uses either 2GB or 4GB GDDR5 modules, RX 570 uses 4GB or 8GB GDDR5 modules, RX 580 uses the 4GB or 8GB GDDR5 modules and finally, the VEGA Lineup uses 8GB HBM2 memory modules.

Higher the models go, higher costs they demand.

We hope that Samsung and Hynix step their game up and start producing more.
