Yes, except...
..except Nvidia themselves came out and said that wasn't the deciding factor in unavailability - it's that gamers are hoovering them up for games.

(And probably, if they were honest, that they can't pump 'em out at faster rates).

Where did they come out and say that? In any case, they're not to be believed, they may put great tech out (when they're forced to by AMD too close) but they're a stain of a company on every other front. I've sat and watched miners snapping up any GPU with >= 8 GB of VRAM on it for the last 6 weeks or so. There aren't any left for gamers to hoover up, certainly not anywhere near RRP.

There are genuine supply issues (caused partly by raw material shortages and Chinese New Year) but to suggest it's gamers buying all these cards with the current Ethereum mining craze is madness.
