Give it a few years when all these new FABs are online prices will drop like a rock. The semiconductor industry is always going from boom to bust in every area that's how the big boys buy out the smaller ones.

Crypto currency will pretty much crater sooner or later so there will be a flood of used cards cheap.

What we have now is a perfect storm of larger demand because of people being inside more, production and delivery bottlenecks caused by virus, and fabs that were at capacity before all this started. Quite a bit of the chips that are hard to get are low tech ones used in cars and appliances.

If you look through history there have always been chokepoints caused by availability in things like RAM, HD's , and even processors.

Speaking of which. Your state is about to go online with the largest semiconductor manufacturing facility in the world. Very nice!

Ohio has water, makes sense to build here instead of AZ.

AZ has no water problem, once you understand how it is managed here. Actually, too much water has put whole towns out of business:

Anyway there is already a massive Intel complex here, so I don't think they necessarily should have two. Having one in the Eastern US makes some sense.

First world problems...You can still enjoy games without the settings maxed out at 4K resolution.

True... But I won't do less than 1440p with maxed settings... except for a few dumb one that are lame anyway.

Once I went with a 1440p 144Hz monitor with great color reproduction, anything less just looks sad for newer games.

Ground water, especially if you need to drill 500 feet to get it, isn't an answer.

Or we'll finally nuke it out and humanity will be literally using rocks again. If that's the case - Hi, possibly alien future аrchaeologists!

I have a well, and the water table is 300 ft. I almost bought a place where the level was 70 feet, and there are lots of places out there that are just fine. Drilling is not a problem, if you understand how it works. And the article is about the colorado river primarily, which 90% of the state of AZ does not use. And when I say we mostly don't use colorado river, it's that we have and developed substantial resources long before it was tapped in in late 70s. And it's not all ground water. The circumstantial issue that the article is talking about does not apply to the entire state.

Just a side note. NVidia stopped making drivers for Windows 7 64 back in October 2021, but to those still running Windows 7 64, like me, they recently released a security update driver (473.04). Just FYI.

Insanity: Few days back, I had dead Xbox Series X in for repair that needed power supply and ETA to receive PSU in shipping is few weeks, yet and customer turned that repair down. Everywhere I looked is consistent price range for the PSU and is worth fixing. But nooo.

Yes, I'm frustrated with the insanity of GPU price too.
