Like how? It doesnt matter what they launch, it's all gonna be gone instantly, but companies do want to keep launching stuff anyways because that's whats been happening for ages and people need to stay busy with new stuff and working on that otherwise everything else stagnates even more.

The idea that Nvida and AMD should stop releasing new SKUs that very few can buy is silly in my opinion. A company doesn't stop releasing products because all its products are being bought. Guitar companies often have 6-month waiting lists for their products. That doesn't stop them releasing new ones. If they did, it would hurt their brand. Plus, it's no fun. New product launches are always exciting for a company and for those that share in the benefits. To ask them to stop is childish. It's almost like saying, "If we the gamers can't buy your product, no one should!"

1 on Ebay already for $2000 Canadian.

GPU's at the moment are stupid, I am just hoping that none of mine go faulty!

Releasing new colour designs is irrelevant when it comes to available volume. The limiting factor isn't cooler shrouds, there will be just as much silicon on store shelves as without an extra design.

And the same goes for entirely different SKU's like the 3060Ti or 3060. Whether Nvidia shares its Samsung silicon between the biggest hitters like the 3070 and 3080 only or whether it shares it across five SKU's as it is doing right now, the same silicon is used and is tied to the same constraints. So if Samsung can't manufacture enough of it to cater to the astronomical demand (or shipping companies can't deliver it or for any other reason we have shortages), it's irrelevant how many SKU's there are. It's frustrating, but it's a perfectly legitimate thing for Nvidia and AMD to do.
