    All of the units shown contained inside those boxes on the pallet is probably enough for 2 cryptominers.

    those boxes are on their way to wholesaler warehouses.

    whatever the wholesaler does with them is up to the wholesaler.

    In another topic there was report of greatly increased sales of pre-built PCs from HP/DELL/...

    Those guys are part of reason why DIY market has shortage. Yet they do not necessarily decrease number of GPUs available for gamers as long as they are willing to buy entire new PC.
    And that at same time means: "Not every GPU that does not go into DIY sale ends up in non-gamer hands."
    (We who are part of DIY market may suffer big time from shortage. But Average Joe who buys complete PC from DELL may not really notice much more than 14 days of wait after order.)

    Situation in my country:
    Dell/Alienware PC with RTX3080 = USD2000
    RTX3080 from a local store = USD2500

    Doesn't seem much of a stock....hmm..all I need now is a couple of mini's, a canal with a fast boat and a van - they will make movies about me and the nvidia job.
    After selling them at the highest bidder I will buy an tropical island, populate it with all kind of playboy and penthouse models and "hail to the king baby".

    If I lived in US or a place with GOOD custom PC builders I'd totally go for a prebuilt right now. Not an option here however...

    Nvidia & AIB should be sued (really) for announcing a msrp on the products which doesn't comply with shop prices.
    I don't give a crap who's right just sort it out.

    At this moment a 3090 sells for 2400+ on newegg or any other retailer who has them in stock.
    And same applies to all other cards, the difference is huge not just a % here and there.

    I don't understand how some people still backup this bshite, it's embarrassing.

    You know an entitled brat when it thinks everyone should comply with their demands for them "it is not in my ways hence SUE!!!".

    I don't usually say this outright, but that's literally the dumbest idea i have ever heard.

    You could have nvidia/AIBs have contracts with official suppliers that state they are not allowed to sell above MSRP that they stated, and if they fail to do this, no more supplies. But this wouldn't help, because it's not the official sellers 99% of the time selling massively above retail, it's the re-sellers.

    But ultimately maybe you don't understand what MSRP means....

    "manufacturer's SUGGESTED retail price"

    So who exactly is misleading customers here?

    Why would you even announce a card for $$$ when it's $$$$ in the shop?
    Basically you either lie to me (nvidia) or you tell me that I have to pay double because MSI is ripping me off.

    I am the one who has to pay double the price you suggested officially, which I consider wrong.

    I think there are laws in EU for this kind of business malpractice to protect consumer.
    I would like some clarity, this is not the corner market.

    And those who approve and back up what's going on are just hypocrites imo.

    No one. Literally not a single person.

    The company that is putting the MSRP is not misleading unleas they themselves are selling for above their own MSRP.

    The retailer that can't keep the stock in at MSRP are not misleading anyone as they are selling at those prices, doesn't matter if they sell out fast.

    And the resellers are not misleading anyone either as they never claimed to abide by MSRP prices and fully within their rights to abide by current market rates of the products they are reselling.

    The fact you even questioning this makes me wonder if you even understand what misleading means but then again you didnt understand what MSRP means so....i guess that's possible.

    Just get off your high horse and understand that products in high demand will sell fast and resellers will be out there to cash in on these facts. There's nothing misleading about it and there's nothing you can do about it. I personally have gotten a 3070 and 3080 at MSRP, YES, i had to wait to get them due to HIGH DEMAND but you speak as if it's impossible and that is 100% factually incorrect.

    Please show where MSI is charging double MSI's MSRP. I know of no card from MSI that is double nvidias MSRP, let alone MSI's MSRP. But the way you state this again makes me think that you just have zero clue how any of this works. Just because nvidia sets an MSRP for the REFERENCE design of a card, doesn't mean all products would come out that way. While i understand this isnt exactly the same, but to think it would mean that would be like thinking the 30k MSRP base model of a car should be the same price as the highest end of the same model of car.......thats not how this works, thats not how it has ever worked. Unless its the reference design, it wont be the MSRP, and even if it is the reference design, it is, again, the manufacturer's SUGGESTED retail price

    Nvidia and AIB's don't make shop prices. End of your attempt to sue.
    But it's a clusterf, no matter how you see it. Even if prices were okay, we still couldn't get our hands on stuff.

    Prebuilt price are crazy in Canada. If you want a good prebuilt computer with a RTX 3080 and an "entry level" CPU (r5/i5 or last gen r7/i7) it's around 4k. It used to be 2k to 3k not too long ago. 4k is a lot of money for a prebuilt computer with a crappy PSU, crappy MB, often crappy ram and questionable cooling.

    For me the problem is i started a new build thinking the GPU shortage would probably end by summer 2021 and now i'm stuck with a full new system without a GPU (was planning to buy a RTX 3080). I'll probably put my old GPU in it in next june when i'll be on vacation and wont need my computer for work but going from a 1800x to a 5800x wont change the perf in games much if at all and the 1800x was still perfectly fine for work i just did not want it to be a small bottleneck at 2k for my upcoming 3080. I was planning to give my old computer to family now i'll be stuck with an old computer without a GPU and used price are stupid.

    On a more serious note it must require special skills to spot a GPU in transit from a factory in china to a mining farm in china. The GPU does not travel for long so you need to be quick to spot it.

    I think you could make a case for msrp being false advertising if it is 0% of time followed by retailers.

    Manufacturer SUGGESTED retail price.

    Don't know how much more clear the simplist statement ever can be.

    And 0% of the time is obviously false as i and others, many many many others, have gotten every single one of the cards at the MSRP for each individual card.

    Please people stop living in your make believe angry filled worlds where you can't see more then an inch in front of your face.

    High demand + scalpers/resellers does not = no items at MSRP are being sold.

    The only way it'd be false advertising is if a retailer advertised a specific price for a product but on checkout it was far more then advertised. And no, resellers on places like amazon or newegg do not apply, if products, after advertising, go out of stock and the only other ones are by companies/people that did NOT advertise that specific price are left, that is not false advertising.

    0 of the time is 100% factual in Canada for 2021. Canada Computer has some of their MSRP cards advertised as coming in 2022 to 2024 and it's not a joke. I'll certainly not order a card that could arrive in 2 years. MSRP should be realistically attainable.
