There's lots of reasons -
Bitcoin Mining (Ethereum) which increases the demand for graphics cards. But will probably be short lived.
Memory cost increases and shortages resulting in limited Graphics card production. This could last a year.
AMD cards high cost - due to HBM - which decrease price competition. HBM prices should drop over the next year as production ramps up.

I think it's inflation and pricing. Also new versions have apdates and stuff like that. For me, a SlottyVegas player, it's good. I can make a bit more. But in general, that's economical influence
