    The quantity of the GPU that were sold depends pretty much on cryptocurency price. I read about companies that bought 50 3070 this year because bitcoin was sky high, now I guess it is much less profitable.

    Hopefully puts paid to any silly theories about them holding back. But as JPR note, it's driven by a huge increase in demand (i.e., miners, work-from-homers) which probably won't persist in the long run.

    So very true. I tried for two weeks. I could've bought them with a already built setup but gave up and won't get one till mine blow up and just stop running.

    To both the above we are talking worldwide. We got the real short end of the stick, for many reasons including Brexit and we have had far far worse shortages than other places. My US buddies said stock was poor but no way near as bad as we had

    Yeah, working from home in lockdown probably had a hand in improving PC sales, though I bet laptop sales went through the roof for the same period.

    Of course - but also prebuilt systems and diy builds as people had more time on hands to game etc.

    Quick question - Why are Intel even on the dGPU chart?
    Last I heard, they haven't even released their rumoured/expected GPUs, so how are they even a factor in market share at this point?

    The expectation they'll be a competitor or are just entering them on because they will be getting market share so therefore might as well start the metrics now.

    I think they officially released an OEM only laptop and low end desktop cards. I guess from the 0% the uptake hasn't been stellar, even in the current GPU drought.
