Brad Chacos reported for PC World yesterday:

Ever since Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 30-series and AMD’s Radeon RX 6000-series graphics cards launched last fall, the overwhelming demand and tight supply, exacerbated by a cryptocurrency boom, has caused prices for all graphics cards to go nuts. Brace yourself: It looks like it’s about to get even worse.

Reporters, I emplore you again, don’t say last fall. It doesn’t apply to half the planet. He’s referring to Q3 last year, for those of you below the equator.

I lost the original tweeter, but the best response I saw was someone saying there may be a silver lining here: expensive hardware may motivate efficiency.
