Funny, I'd have thought selling every card they could make was a great way to gain market share. Perhaps you can find an economics major and ask them.
Market share....as a long-term strategy anyway, is not about the sheer number of GPUs sold to a few users.
It is about maximum exposure, with the initial purchasers stating how good the products are thereby causing a 'rush' of potential customers to switch from the competing product.
Hence....market share.

The concept of GPUs being available on list price seems so far away that Asus is promoting NewEgg style raffles to win a chance to buy GPUs at msrp !!!

Seems like this is UK only? I can only enter a UK address in the steam form sign-up.

That would be hilarious if it wasn't so sad.

I just want a used 1080 ti or 2070 to upgrade my VR rig. Prices on them are over what the new MSRP was. This is dumb.
