    What is your "coping" strategy for the time until you can get a latest-model Nvidia/AMD GPU?

    Sounds good. And how much did you pay for the items you purchased?

    What is your "coping" strategy for the time until you can get a latest-model Nvidia/AMD GPU?

    I can use the old one, but performance in Adobe Lightroom sucks big time. In recent releases, Adobe has been adding nice new features that want to have a fast GPU. I haven't seen it in writing, but Adobe seems to optimize for Nvidia architecture, hence my interest in a 3060 Ti, but I'm also...

    What is your "coping" strategy for the time until you can get a latest-model Nvidia/AMD GPU?

    MY strategy is to hope and pray that my ancient 660 Ti keeps working for another year. Otherwise, I have to buy the least expensive card I get get off Ebay or Craigslist. And probably a new cable for my 2020 model Dell display.

    RTX 3050 Ti for laptops only? What is Nvidia thinking?

    So while all this discussion is interesting, we have no way of knowing when we can actually buy one of these models (assuming that's what you want).

    What's the truthful reason(s) for the GPU shortage?

    I read somewhere that the average gas-powered car has about 30,000 parts. Automotive supply chains have "Tier 1," "Tier 2," etc. suppliers and who knows how many chips are single-sourced for small factories without much buying power (or profit margin).
