AMD and Nvidia's gaming chips are facing falling prices on secondary platforms such as Newegg, Amazon, and eBay, according to RBC.




Their decreasing average selling prices could indicate a slowdown in the gaming business, according to RBC analyst Mitch Steves.




Weakness could also be related to cooling crypto-mining activities, Steves added.

Chipmakers such as AMD and Nvidia are under pressure as their gaming chips are losing pricing power, RBC says.

Prices on secondary platforms such as Newegg, Amazon and eBay are falling, according to the firm. For example, AMD's mid-range chip RX 580 was selling at $249 to $299 on Amazon a month ago, but is now priced at around $189. Meanwhile, Nvidia's high-end graphics card GTX 1070 has seen its selling price continue to slide since February.
