    I blame covid hurting supply lines due to extra safety checks and people being inside with nothing else to do that learned being part of the virtual world, building a computer or getting an Xbox Series X or Playstation 5 is some of the best fun time-passing and allows us to still communicate remotely.

    The sooner we all do the things to prevent and reduce spreading it further, the sooner we will be able to have better availability.

    2060 also had no FE, right?

    Since the 3060 will be presumably lower power consumption will cards that fit within 2-slot space be available?

    So that $329 will not be followed by board partners because they're gonna add GAMER features.

    When you think about it, it sort of makes sense, I mean they don't want to price the 3060 correctly so why not just sell old inventory in that price bracket which is already higher than the price bracket that the old card should be sold at!

    makes perfect sense.

    They're not selling old inventory.
    They are producing new 2060/S inventory because 7nm capacity is tight and so even 3070/80 can't be fulfilled, let alone 3060. So they're re-introducing 2060/S in the meantime.

    Makes sense.. pricing doesn't though, but what you said makes sense.

    I'd love to buy a 2060 but they are literally double what they should be... hurray the future is awesome... sigh.
