    The GPU shortage is the result of a perfect storm of issues. The pandemic causing worker shortages and shutdowns, record amounts of people building computers, crypto-currency spikes, and opportunistic scalpers. I think NVIDIA's hope is that by eliminating one of those issues, crypto miners in this case, the supply will slowly fill back up.

    Speaking of GPU shortage.... Just saw a GT710 1GB VRAM for 129€ at my local tech store... So sad.

    That being said, I really liked your article, friend. It's very well written ☺️

    There seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel now. With Etherium about to switch to proof of stake and China clamping down on mining for realzies the prices of cards in China are dropping fast. With companies in panic mode in China they've got two options: Move outside of China or sell their mining gear before the government seizes it. In many cases the choice will be the latter, flooding the second hand market with fairly new graphic cards maybe under msrp. So my advice is to wait a month more. Anyone looking for a good graphic card has waited for this long, one extra month won't kill them.

    Thank you very much! Sad to see such opportunism from retailers but not surprising.

    It seems to be improving for sure. Yesterday, I saw a 3080 available at Best Buy for sale... very briefly. But I haven't seen them have any in stock for months. And eBay prices have been dropping finally. But I think I'm just going to skip this generation. I'll probably buy into AMD's next line as they'll have ironed out some of their ray tracing issues.

    Well I'm sitting on my GTX 1050 TI Mobile, honestly it performs well in most of games that I play but I still want to upgrade it due to the VRAM and performance are dying very quickly, I was hoping for the AMD FSR to give it a little boost but on Brazil the price of GPUs are insane, not only because of mines and scalpers, but due to the dollar price being absurd, still if I'm going upgrade I'm probaly going for a laptop with RTX 2060, it should be future proof even thought laptop GPU's have a bit less performance than desktop GPU's.

    Great article by the way!
