Nvidia CFO Colette Kress said that the difficulties with the shortage of the necessary components for the production of the new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards will remain until the end of 2020. Probably even until April 2021. At the same time, not a specific component is in short supply, but several at once.
Although different models of video cards of the new series are released gradually again, for example, sales of the RTX 3060 Ti recently started, it will be extremely difficult to find video cards in the public domain at recommended prices for a long time.
Due to the demand for new graphics cards, prices for the previous RTX 20 series have also started to rise. And this applies not only to prices in stores, but also to the cost in the secondary market. Simply put, now is not the best time for those planning to buy new video cards in the near future.
Recently, a rumor has emerged from financial analysts RBC Captial Markets and Barrons, who believe that Nvidia has directly sold hundreds of thousands of new graphics cards to cryptominers.
