    All over the news and YouTube algorithm one thing to notice is "chip shortage" and China phobia (this time no personality involved as it was with Russia).

    But prices are decent. 11600k is expensive, but affordable. PC components are maybe 10% higher if not the same? GPU is exception ofcourse.

    How come prices don't reflect recent lockdown demand, new shipping costs and all the China warnings?

    The only "lack of China" my wallet will feel on GPU, everything else is expensive, but affordable, as always.

    Doomsday headlines and propaganda.

    Toshiba was quoted as saying there will be a shortage until 2023. Dosen't bode well.

    I guess we all won't be getting those 2021 and 2022 cars with digital screens.

    Those Tesla prototype vehicles spring to mind. With the massive 20 inch screen slapped in the middle of the dash so the driver can be distracted while the AI drives the wrong way. They will also never be aloud on public roads.
