    wonder if this has anything to do with the AMD card I wanted going up in price by £40 on OCUK since I checked yesterday?

    Well at this rate it would be quicker for me to learn an os-x only 3D program and buy a mac...and then struggle with the lack of ram.

    I want to build an entire pc but there is absolutely zero point doing that without a gpu...


    I have to have cuda so getting an amd card is pretty pointless and with the current 'delays' I'm now basically waiting on AM5 cpu before buying a pc without the gpu lol

    Lol no - just supply and demand, and again supply is well below demand

    I've been following alerts on Discord for a while now, there is a steady trickle of cards being released. Guess it just depends on being faster than the scalpers and / or miners and / or other consumers. I didn't exactly try hard to get my card back in December.

    It was much easier to get GPUs at close to RRP back in December. My mate got their RTX3060TI for just over £400 back then.

    I might not be serious.

    You say that but they’ve not been out of stock once for the last few weeks AND have been marked with the maximum 10+ available…

    Demand hasn’t changed over night, but the price has.

    The RRP is still there for the FE Nvidia cards, but the pricing of the AIB cards is pretty atrocious by any standards of sensible. AMD AIB card pricing is just awful, it's nowhere near RRP.

    Could be worse. I built a new PC last spring with the plan to buy a new GPU at Christmas. Gave up looking and got a Series X instead but annoying having a decent x570/3600 setup running with a rx480... I've only really used the CPU in anger for some video transcoding but on the whole its mostly sat idle.
