i went from 1440P back to 1080P because the vertical alignment monitors just looked better than TN.
I don't even care that I switched back to 1080P image looks better.

That's so true. Thankfully, Samsung has released the VA Odyssey G7 at 1440P with a 240 Hz refresh rate. Unfortunately there are no graphics cards available to drive that resolution and refresh rate.

here's an indication that you have "gotta have it syndrome". He's reaching for
a RTX 2060 super at a RTX 3090 price point but so what, right? Gotta have it.

Has there ever been supply issues like this in the history of GPU launches?

Not that I remember, and I've been following this since 1996. Even back in late 2017 to 2018 when the mining craze tanked supply, it was usually possible to get cards if you were willing to spend money. Prices have exploded for cards that are only available if you get exceedingly lucky or resort to joining the F5 brigade alongside others on Discords dedicated to by-the-minute inventory tracking. Even the secondhand market's inflated and constrained at this point.

I'm glad Nvidia's doing this, and I hope AMD takes notice and gets Global Foundries to spin up a run of 12nm RX 590s too. Those can be reclocked and rebadged to RX 580s and 570s, if need be. If the upper end of the market's ravenous, the 1080p/introductory 1440p market is starving.

Never, been following this for 2 decades, I was upset at paying a $100 premium in 2018 for a 1080 ti during the mining boom (made up by the premium on my 1080 though lol), I fully expected things to normalize by now more or less and foolishly canceled 4x 3070 orders near MSRP around thanksgiving...those would have minted gold more or less now.

I don't know if they would, but I like this idea. For the prices they were going for towards the end of their lifecycle they were really hard to beat on price/performance. If you were gaming at 1080p they were excellent cards, and some of the higher-clocked 580 cards (and the 590s) did really well at 1440p in some games, too.

I'm not sure what it says about supply/demand and the rapid advance of tech when the idea of "new old parts" seems reasonable.

Yeah, it's pretty batshit insane, it's like people actually forgot the whole point was that you could get 2080 Super performance at the price point a 2060 Super (3060ti @ $399)... not just to have any card with RTX on it to throw into a system.

there's the pandemic going this time around which makes it worse. there's always issue of gpu shortage during launch day, but always able to be normalized within a few months.
