Tons of people in the UK are trying to get their hands on a new graphics card for months.
However, the stock shortage means there will be plenty of PC enthusiasts to try and get a new graphics card.
Much like PS5 stock, graphics cards are extremely limited and customers have been scrambling to get one with massive preorder queues being created.
Meanwhile, there might be good news for people looking for an RX 6800 cards as AMD has said it hopes to restock the card soon.
The card has been extremely hard to grab since releasing a few months ago and most retailers have had very little in stock.
But AMD has pledged to get more cards out by the end of this quarter.
Senior director at Radeon Technologies Group Ritche Corpus told BabelTechReview s: “Based on the response to our AMD Radeon RX 6800 Series and Radeon RX 6900 XT reference design graphics cards, we are extending production to make them available to as many gamers as possible on AMD.com at SEP.
“Additional reference cards are expected to be available in the first quarter of 2021. We will also continue supporting our partners in the development of their custom AMD Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics card designs.”
Meanwhile Nvidia‘s 3080 cards are also tough to grab with most retailers getting a steady stream of cards coming in a week.
It was recently revealed that scalpers have made an estimated $15 million in total profits from graphics cards.
Oracle data analyst Michael Driscoll found most of the stock ends up on eBay, with 39,064 units resold compared to 10,616 on StockX. The GeForce RTX 3080 is the most frequently resold model on eBay, where it’s shifted 14,066 units, whereas the GeForce RTX 3070 narrowly outsells the RTX 3080 on StockX with 3,697 sales to 3,473.
Prices also went even higher as a knock-on effect from recent new tariffs on PC components imported from China, which Driscoll said hiked MSRPs up between 7% and 25%. Unsurprisingly, resellers raised their prices just as much.
