    Upper mid range and high end GPUs out of stock and/or insanely priced, and nobody knows why

      This is a very good time to start including in your nightly prayers, "Please don't let my graphics card die!"  This has gone from a major annoyance of cryptomining arsehats inflating the prices through the stratosphere to a full out crisis, seriously. Even if you are a mid-ranger, you're only left low end cards.

       

       

      The 1080Ti is MIA

       

      So is the 1080

      Same for the 1070Ti

      Ditto for the 1070, except the Gigabyte external version

      And even the GTX 1060 is starting to feel the effects

       

       

       

      And on the AMD side, Vega is of course nowhere near the realm of being in stock, and wouldn't even be in the realm of reality if it were

       

       

      The RX 580 is a no show, even going so far as to affect the combo deals as well

       

      Same story for the RX 570

       

       

      And yet again even the RX 560 is starting to feel the effects

       

       

      This is not good for anyone, especially not AMD, because the only cards left are the GTX 1060 and the RX 550, which isn't matchup at all.
