No, there are no GDDR6X shortages and NVIDIA has already purchased 10s of millions of VRAM modules. I am right now at about 99% assured that we will continue to see low inventories on cards close to 3080 FE MSRP and big inventory releases of cards that are well above that and $900 and $1000 20GB 3080 cards becoming the norm for in stock. I expect to see those inventories hit retail around October 19th/20th.So, does this mean that it's a combination of low GDDR6X supply from Mircon resulting in low nVidia inventory being allocated for the 20GB 3080, 3090, and higher-end Quadro Ampere offerings so that nVidia can push more availability to those much higher priced units which have a much higher profit margin per unit, and manipulate their customers by steering them to these higher priced units?
