GPU shortage, a quick (but probably dumb) question

Is this only affecting GFX cards with 4 or more GB of RAM?

In other words, are 2 and 3GB GFX cards still in normal pricing territory, or are they affected as well?

So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

RX 570 and 580, 1650/1650 Super, 5500 XT... all either always have 4GB of VRAM or have a variant with 4GB, and all are increasingly hard to find or marked up now when they are available.

In my experience, anything in the just about 500 USD range is very difficult to get, which did have an effect on the lower end hardware too, mostly in not being available.

GTX 1650 (Super), 5500XT.. It's not like these cards have been fully replaced, so it looks like they're still being manufactured.

At Microcenter last night, the best card they had as a RX550.

 

1030 was $89 I think?

 

It's not just GPUs, a lot of shelves were bare of things.

 

Manufacturing as a whole is shunted.

Last time I looked at my local MC's online inventory (which is no longer reliable, granted) the only cards they had in stock below $500 were a single model of the 1030 and a single 570.

Yeah I was thinking things like the 1060 3GB version, if it could still be had for sane money, or if the mining resurgence had grabbed those up as well.
