Also, because of the new video card generation production on the older generation ended some time ago. So you have a combination out of covid, low GPU stock, new generation just launched but no supply available.

Im looking to get a 2080 ti but they are still so expensive even tho the 3080 is out for half the price
Because there was a minimum amount of cost to produce and get the product to retail that's higher than the 3080. Hardware have a logical cost/performance scale only for its current generation.

It's similar to why a 500GB hard drive doesn't cost half as much as a 1TB hard drive. You still have to pay for all that material used to make the thing.
