    I upgraded my PC during the middle of last year to a ryzen 3700x but held off on getting a new graphics cards to upgrade my 1060 to wait until the 30 series came out but now I wish I just bought a 20 series when I could as I'm not paying double retail. Also during the pandemic I saved much more money than now when I'm back at work, working my ass off in the IT industry as our government had unemployment benefits for pandemic job losses. Feels like I'm going backwards and I'm worried about inflation that all this free money that was given out. House prices have had their biggest monthly rise ever in Australia, I don't think I'll ever be able to buy my own place.

    There may be a little delay, but nearly all semiconductor components are in shortage, even a very cheap MCU used in a 2 dollors toy. So the end users will feel the shortage after 3-4 months after the factories ran out of their stocks. Indeed, there is another key reason that never mentioned above, the Trump banned some Chinese giants, which cause more giants start buy more than their real needs to get enough stock, the trust among gloabl supply chain lost, which cause every company starts to stock chips because of fear instead of trying to sustain as lowest stock as possible before.

    This video hasn't aged well in regards to GPUs. Right now GPU supply problems are 100% crypto mining related. In mid April there just isn't any other reason for the shortages of GPUs, at least nvidia GPUs. 1. Its been 7 months since the release of the 3070/3080. Thats more than enough time to adjust to the increased demand. 2. Nvidia was originally unhappy with Samsung's yield on the GPUs but reports a couple of months ago indicated that Samsung had solved the yield problems. 3. Samsung fab space and time isn't anywhere as in demand as TSMC (AMD). Samsung just doesn't have as many as big clients as TSMC does. Companies like Apple use TSMC as does Qualcomm and of course AMD.

I'm one of those people hit hard by the pandemic, don't have the coin to buy a GFX card at this pricing, so I'm stuck using onboard GFX for now.

You can find well paid honest jobs as JS dev, especially in the current economic climate (though given your sorry-ass site you're going to need some more studying, feels like a "_back to the future_" remake with it's 90s design), and you're terribly awfull at covering your tracks. I mean, commenting your JS in chinese while advertizing with your YT bait accounts for a chinese restaurant (that is most likelly run by a family member...)? Lad you're sloppy as shit, you're going to end up with a 6 digits fine to pay if you keep that up... At least make the effort of writing the code to be generating your various accounts messages.

    Yeah, its been 7 months since the release of the 3070/3080 and 5 months since the release of the 6800(xt) and stock is now harder to find than ever and prices keep going up. I was lucky enough to grab a 6800xt in Feb and now the same seller is listing it $160 more but its never in stock. There is just no reason that this problem is continuing and actually getting worse.

I changed the oldest (over a decade) over to Linux (Pop OS and Mandrake) and it is back to life and running as strong as more recent systems and are now my workhorses for certain applications... Others I just flushed and revamped... yes, I now have several systems running. but I am also able to easily split my workloads among systems so that my newest system can be dedicated to the most intensive programs/games without issue... I also can run resource heavier programs on other systems and just move data around on the network instead of taxing the heck out of one system by trying to run everything.. Prime example is running THmy videos and tutorials on a separate machine from my graphics / CAD machines... Doubling the "electricity load is still measured an a couple dollars (at best) per month as opposed to several thousand dollars for a single system to carry the heavier load.

    You're missing the upstream supply chain and you're bitching about the wrong type of miners...well, actually the people/companies who do the "exploration" bit. LME Copper price has basically doubled over the last 12 months. It's "stabilized" around $9000USD/MT, right now (for how long?). Copper is required for all technology; I can't think of any industry that doesn't need copper in some way or another. Why has it spiked? Well, CoVID primarily--keeping miners out of the mines. A strong secondary reason--sourcing new copper deposits and opening new mines is down. That is something worth bitching about.

Worst case, you're just left with a ton of excess capacity and waiting for the next pandemic to make it make sense, hopefully while that new capacity is still technologically relevant. I mean, yeah. There's a bunch of other economic ripples from this that look like they might stick around a while, but this? I don't know, but I'm doubtful.

    Linus... We here in Germany are in Lockdown since November 2020. I would LOVE to spend money on local businesses, but our gourverment is stupid as hell and has no other solution then "Lockedown" all the time. And everybody sees, that this strategy does not work..... So I REALLY need a RTX NOW! ;)
