Re: Ignoring market segment

GPUs are becoming available now, but just one week ago only a few models were in stock, and three weeks ago Scan barely had any mid-high end graphics cards showing as 'in stock'. One month ago it was basically impossible to pick up a GPU for less than a 30-40% price hike over MSRP, whereas normally they're going for 10-20% under MSRP after six months of being on the market.

Miners might have stopped buying six months ago, but it's taken five and a half months for that to work through the channels to us end users.
