What's behind all the demand and scalping?  MS Flight Sim?

New series of PC Gaming cards is always scarce at launch. This one is 30% faster than previous gen and $500 less.

I'm interested in the HDMI 2.1 ports, which will allow 120fps at 4k resolution. Might finally be time for another big screen (40"-43" 4k 120hz).

Finally a proper next gen release. We have some pent up demand due to incremental improvements on last couple of cycles of new hardware. Combine with pc gaming getting a massive boost during covid and supply chain issues on the build side I'm surprised they had many to sell at all.
