Wait hang on a minute. Since when was £248 for a 470 with no heads cheaper?

Am I dreaming or have AMD shoved their prices up dramatically?

It is not AMD, it is retailers (and potentially AIBs) just responding to the insane demand.

This is a stupid situation, but alas it is what is happening right now.

Exactly, I hope this house of cards crashes sooner, rather than later.

Ah well leave them to it the greedy pigs. There goes my cheap replacement or stand in for the Fury X or Titan X if either of them pack up, though.

Having said that they are both under water, so should last longer than a standard air cooled GPU.

D'you know what though? if AMD can get loads of cash out of a low end GPU like this then fair play. I mean at the end of the day it keeps them in the GPU market and stops Nvidia from doubling their prices.

Not really. They get initial surge in revenue, but if everything is out of stock, they can't sell anything. It's better to have a consistent flow than bursts.
Nvidias prices are inflated now and have been for a week due to how long it's taking for AMD to create more stock
