I'm sure what's going on is the same thing as the economy and we'll just have to pull through.
Commodities like high-end graphics cards and pc gaming are luxury items and they will be the first items to decline in sales during difficult economic times.
NVIDIA's track record during the last six months shows the effects of consumer buying habits during this time. Their stock price dropped from $17 to $10 per share.
Intel has been affected during this period as their stock dropped from $21 per share to $18 and the downward trend continues.
I read somewhere that pc gaming revenue declined last month for the first time in a long time.
So there it is.
I majored in Ecomomics...
