In general, that seems quite terrible.

On the topic of electronics.... Y-e-a-h... Not helpful, although, I wasn't expecting any kind of improvement this year. Now, however, the supply problems may stretch well into next year.

With that said, as much as the lack of availability is annoying, it's infuriating to have the situation significantly worsened by these [many expletives] scalpers. At least IMO.

Lol, it's not so much the scalpers but the crypto miners that have created the hardware inventory shortfall in conjunction with the increased demand for systems due to the virus "stay at home" protocols. Scalpers just trade on the supply issues by having hard to get hardware.

Supply and demand! Wait until all the newly printed dollars start looking for the few products out there and prices all go up.

I'm curious how Nvidia is pushing out 3080ti when there isn't even enough 3080's out there.

They are just keeping the interest in their cards instead of the competition.
