I have no worries for that because I know AMD took their lesson after so many disastrous products. Hopefully we are not going back to pre-RDNA1 and pre-ZEN era. Big Navi seems like a fine-tuned architecrure to me (just like the zen3) due to the fact that AMD had a long time working on consoles with some similar feats, I hope I won't be wrong in this.
You and me both good buddy, you and me both.

And? My post had nothing to do with production and availability, only price.
Availability and price tend to go hand in hand. Product cant be found, ppl/companies tend to raise the price. They know the 20 series is discontinued so youll have to pay whatever they charge. Hence you wont find product at msrp. We are seeing the same with the new 30 series. This site talks about this all the time but I guess you missed those.

No you just don't understand basic economics and the very correlation you pointed out.

With 16 Gigabytes of RAM, the AMD graphics cards are attractive. But the Nvidia cards may have all the memory you need for the resolutions for which it is reasonable to use the video cards. As well, the 6900 XT, with the same 16 Gigs as the lower-end models, can't game at 8K, unlike the 3090, with 24 Gigs, which can. The AMD cards do create a quandary for Nvidia, even though its better software suite means they certainly can still get away with charging a modest premium.

This is despite the Nvidia cards selling out so quickly; eventually, they probably will have to add VRAM to remain competitive. But I don't think they need to improve their existing line-up quickly; adding cards at the low end, just as AMD presumably will do soon, is the priority. Or would be, if they can get enough silicon to meet demand; if not, they might as well use whatever silicon they have on the more profitable segments of the market.

What makes the difference if it's RTX 3080, 3090 or even a 3080Ti or the even new 6800 or 6900 XT if they're never in stock. You have a great chance here to be better than your competition here AMD don't blow it!!!

Everyday I open up the RTX 3080 saved tab and see these $699 cards being displayed for 1000 euros minimum. And the $499 RTX 3070 is 780 euros at the lowest.

Yeah, I don't think we'll see a $999 RTX 3080ti.
Not for the next 8 months possibly. Speculating here.
 
Not for someone who needs serious compute power and wants to game at 8K. For the rest of us, yeah.

The compute power sure, but the benchmarks I saw of people benchmarking games at 8K on the 3090 had them running at barely 30 FPS with dips below that. The "8K Gaming" thing is just marketing.

8k is starting to look like diminishing returns as you would probably need about a 100" or something larger to see the difference between 4 and 8k. Speculations from me once more.
