China is already experiencing shortages and GPU price hikes.
MyDrivers report on ongoing price changes of graphics cards in the Chinese domestic market. The site provides a month to month price changes for various popular SKUs. The site also recently reported on an upcoming 30% reduction of overall GPU shipment and 50% lower shipment of the RTX 3060 series. Both things are immediately reflected with price changes.

The site reports that deliveries on GeForce RTX 2060 and GTX 1660 SUPER are very rare with RTX 3070 and above being slightly better but still not great. For now, the shipments of RTX 3060 Ti and RTX 3060 are relatively better.
While the AMD supply seems to be steady (which still does not help to move the prices down), NVIDIA is clearly having trouble keeping up with the demand. Various reasons are cited by our sources, some being temporary closures of GPU assembly lines due to new COVID outbreaks in China.
