    The price of consumer GPUs have gone sharply up in the past few months...

Which all of us in the technology manufacturing industry are well-aware of, because of the series of fires at major chip manufacturers that are core in the tech supply chain. And the fact that the massive manufacturers (Apple, et al) have used their weight to buy up all future capacity at all existing semiconductor factories for the next few years.

People don't get how big of a deal this is.

By the end of this year, new tech hardware just isn't going to be available any more. It's going to take at least a year to recover the semiconductor industry, at least.
