Dang, if video card makers and system builders are going to pull this sh**, I might just have to turn to console gaming. No way in hell I'm paying $1200 for a mid-range card that was supposed to be $450-$500. Hell, I thought the original MSRP for the 3070 was a tad too high. Then you've got system builders buying up all the stock and slapping overpriced cards into crap systems that are made up of junk components and hot glue everywhere, because they know people just want the cards.

how the hell could nvidia delay production during peak sale season and not receive a shareholder uproar

Simple, they've been reaching their quarter targets each and every time.

It's not an unusual practice either. Car manufacturers do this from time to time. When they know they're gonna reach their quarterly target that is going to increase the company shares, they halt production at the point they know they're gonna reach that target. Then they resume production for the next quarter and have another record quarter instead of plateauing and have the share prices plateau too.

There's nothing surprising really, it's just business. And it's a good way to keep the shareholders happy too.

It doesn't even make sense. Retailers are purchasing the cards for a fixed price. What the retailers actually charge the customers doesn't affect how much Nvidia is getting per card.
This was my first thought as well.

Are you sure about that?

And they plan on releasing the 4000 series "relatively soon" too, the higher they keep the prices til then, the higher they can put the next MSRP on the next serie. 400-500$ 4060 anyone? You know Nvidia wants that...

Also AMD is no threat either supply wise so they don't even risk losing market share. Not until the shortage at TSMC ( also supplying Intel GPUs ) is resolved, it gives them a year or 2 to continue pulling shenanigans and shoving shit down PC gamers throats who've been lapping it up during the crypto crisis, all the while registering record profits quarter after quarter.

It's the ratchet effect on GPU prices. Miners and scalpers drove up the prices, Nvidia then makes sure the prices don't go back down by driving up lower SKUs pricing with ludicrous MSRP. They already began with Turing and are simply continuing with Ampere and are probably gonna continue with the next one as long as it works and they continue to register record quarterlies.

Why not continue to do it as long as the quarterlies are up?

*****

All in all, it makes perfect business sense, it's win-win everywhere for them.

Um, it’s says why in the title “ to keep prices as high as possible “ .
And you believe every headline? Coffee
No, but in this case the headline matches the article.
The question here is do you believe the article … I don’t.

Either way it doesn’t matter to me because I am neither a shareholder or seeker of a 3k card. 🤷‍♀️

Nvidia halting production. - -- Before I clicked that link, I swear on my life I thought to myself this sounds like Moores Law is Dead clickbait. The guys puts so many * (asterisks) in his leak videos so that he always has some kind of nonsense out when something ends up being somewhat / mostly or totally false. Which is almost always.
