The integrated GPU was used as a point of reference from a performance perspective. That means that anything better will simply increase the amount of games you can play.Do you know "the majority of us" don't even have an integrated GPU, since are using Ryzen (a quite popular solution in the last years) or F CPUs ?
And NO, I don't know of many good games that runs well on an iGPU.
Said that, I'd like the crypto market to disappear not only for energy waste reasons.
If I didn't understand crypto, I would like it to disappear too. Unfortunately it's too valuable a technology to let die or kill.
In any case, there is nothing wrong with waiting to be able to get what you want. Especially for something like a graphics card. It's really a first world problem that people complain about prices being higher than normal. A while back it was RAM. Soon it will be something else. There is always something that is overpriced.
