And AMD tries to keep the Sharks (As it's value soars) that make NVidia and Intel morally evil for their practices away.

Sack Lisa Lu for launching paper products and raising the prices that are not even available to sell. What kind of management is this ? now, eagerly waiting for the fanboyz to launch an attack :)
Yes let's blame Lisa Su for making compelling products in a COVID 19 world.

If you want to buy a 3000 series RTX cards or a 6000 series Radeon cards, just watch on youtube some live product availability checker.

Radeon, Geforce, Zen 3 cpu are frequently in stock, but they just sell very quickly. but if you want to get one, you can, i was able to after 2 days of checking.

As for GPU, the MSRP is not valid and all price are jacked up even if you aren't looking at a "scalper". By example, newegg changed the price of the Saphire Nitro+ 6800 to 1200$ can, same thing for the Asus TUF. they were 200$ cheaper before chrismass.

The thing is they can sell it at these price so they have no reason not to do it. If they could charge 100K$ for every GPU and sell them all, they would sell them at that price. If you own stock of Nvidia, AMD or any of these company, you don't care much about them hitting MSRP. You care about their sales numbers and profits.

It's the same things as concerts tickets. they are now overpriced because people are buying them overpriced from scalper. Why let someone else make profits on your products if you can be the one doing it.

None of these company owe you anything. They are all for profits company selling non-essential product. If that make you mad, just get a new hobby or keep your current system that is probably still fine if you lower details...

Watch out you are going to be a fanboy for making common sense arguments that are not based on mindshare.

Yes...NVIDIA has much bigger plans and visions. You are correct in one thing "Making money is everything." Huang (CEO) earned his Master's degree from Stanford University. Sincere congratulations to a USA Immigrant. After Stanford he worked for AMD in a 'key executive' position (Microchip Design) and then getting even smarter. Now Huang is drawing down an annual salary of USD$26 million along with stock options, bonuses and deferred pension nest egg payments doubling this amount. He is a bilionare 12 times over. His recent purchase of "Arm Holdings" for a cool USA$40 billion is another sign that people like him are in a different stratosphere than us remaining mortals and with "No Access." With ARM in Huang's pocket the entire "RTX 3000" effort is by far not his primary business objective anymore. His company went public in 1999, shares priced at $19.69 each. An investment of $2000 and your initial capital with reinvested dividends would now have grown to $291,000. Both AMD and Intel will be in for ride of their lives coming soon to this theater thanks to Mr. Huang. His early impressionable work at AMD tought him well and how to move in a corporate world. There was a recent interview when Huang returned home and in the Taiwan Financial Times. He said: "The ARM purchase changed our corporate culture and strategy. We are now paying attention to where the real and big money is!" Thursday, January 28 is the Intel earnings report and Thursday, February 11 it's NVIDIA. I cleaned up nicely with AMD in a very short time. Perhaps now its Intel's time in stepping up to the bar?

She, and the rest of the senoir management, should have just picked up their shovels and pickaxes and joined the chaingangs in the foundry.

There's a difference between changing a quote and editing out superfluous content.

Stop the personal attacks/insults.
