The unit sale has not increased QoQ, just the price increases, then it is not going to last, especially Intel is driving hard into the discrete market, the sale value will bound to decrease either through price reduction or through volume demand. The splendid demand due to covid virus is an abnormal event, it is not clear how long will it last.

I was expecting the low end to become $500 next year… so we are early in it. I was expecting middle range to be $1000 next year… so we are behind the schedule.. and i expected highend to become $2000 to $3000 next year… also behind schedule in there…
Have to see what low end gpus i can afford in the years to come…

Unit sales did increase, by 0.77 million units. I'd love to know the breakdown of various GPU models, but if you look at the above chart, that's around 34 million discrete GPUs sold since the RTX 30-series and RX 6000-series first launched. Going with the 80-20 figures, that's 27 million GPUs sold by Nvidia in the past nine months. However, many of those could still be Turing GPUs. Still, probably at least half would be Ampere? Actually, maybe half are GTX 16-series, then half of the remaining are Ampere? (Those cheaper cards have far higher volumes — could be way more than half of the sales for GTX 16-series.)

Cryptocurrency is the devil. The crap is messing up numerous markets. It's even affected the auto industry. Folks have loss more than they have gained with it. But heck these insane markets have affected your quality of life even if you had gained a lot of cash from crpyto smh. You can't buy what's not for sale smh

The chip shortage is strictly due to CoVid. A year ago, the bottom had dropped out of jobs, shopping, office work, school, airlines, auto sales, and SO much more. tech companies reacted by slashing sales expectations, inventory, laying off workers, and CANCELLING orders for computer parts. Since it takes a YEAR from the time a chip is ordered and queued for a FAB until the finished product, we are in the midst of all these canceled orders.

That's kind of bogus data and doesn't really say what you claim it does .....

Manufacturers don't get any more money because some scalpers have jacked up the prices, they make the exact same whether it's sold at MSRP or if it is sold for astronomical prices by Scalpers ...... Any increase for manufacturers is based on units sold alone and not the warped market prices

If you actually looked at AMD's and Nvidia's finacial reports in 2020 you'd know that just wasn't true ..... The shortage is caused by record demand and TSMC is booked solid and never cut production even for a week in 2020
