    prices are amazing, they nearly hitting the "scalping" prices. Scalpers might need to revise their sell prices from 2k to 2.5k soon :lol:

    Crypto boom is definitely not helping this at all Ethereum went from $400 Feb 2020 to nearly $2400 now

    Why hasn't the ACCC got any clue this is happening?

    Have to appreciate the irony of them tagging it with #pcgaming, #gaming and #gamers

    The stores are passing on the distributor prices which are increasing because of high demand from coin miners that are willing to pay more than retail and insufficient resources to build the cards creating bottlenecks, so the average Joe building a PC has to pay more. The ACCC cant do anything.

    Take a look at the Zotac tweet. Thats 8 individual gamers without a card for their PC, all working for a coin miner who probably has many more racks identical to that.

    Yeah this it. Yield issues + massive supply chain disruption due to covid + crypto boom causing supply chain disagregation (miners buying from manufacturers is new). I suspect all levels of the supply chain are making more margin that usual, but I doubt they are happy about it - stores would rather sell 10000 units at 5% like normal than 1000 units at 25%.
