When did GPUs get so damn expensive?

I have been looking to build a new PC because my old one is just getting... Well old. And upgrading wouldn't have much effect, so why not build a new one.

But as I gazed at the store, thinking "Oh I can probably get a 1070 for like 350ish somewhere" I was shocked when I saw that the average price was 500-600 euros. Why did this happen? Didn't they get released at a price point of 350ish?

That sucks balls for gamers and such, do you think the price will drop again or will it stay like this for a long time?

Maybe when VEGA comes out the market will stabilize. But as of now there haven't been any signs of crypto-mining going away.
