nVidia also sold direct to miners hence the artificial scarcity of GPUs this generation, at least in the beginning. This is one of the reasons for this fine. I’m historically going back decades of GPU sales, nVidia is known for paper launches. Take for example the 3090TI supposed to be out Jan/Feb but it’s still barely available despite supposed to have been released end of March despite being announced in Jan and nVidia pushing back the release date just to one up AMD. We’ll see if the 6950XT will be a paper launch when it’s released this week.

Both companies have had paper launches in the past, but AMD tends to do hard launches. nVidia on the other hand tend to do paper launches if nothing else to get PR over AMD. Although both this generation have been plagued by supply chain issues which has affected everyone. So take your pick.
As to GPUs at MSRP they’re readily available at or close to MSRP at this point.

At this point you may as well wait till Aug/Sept when the NexGen cards come out, the performance delta and the new cards is going to be the biggest in generations if you believe the rumours. Think Pascal or better generational performance leap, it’ll be more problematic for nVidia for their Lovelace architecture as it’s likely to be a major power hog whereas AMD is bifurcating their line-up with monolithic and a MCM design for their range with the latter having a competitive advantage similar to Zen over Intel’s arch.
To say the next generation of GPU wars is going to be interesting is a understatement.
You need to be more specific, unfortunately I’m not a mind reader nor do I have a crystal ball that works.
Alternatively you could be less rude and hostile.

If you need this kind of tech just get a Axis A8105 with a relay. I’ve got one installed on my house for remote access and if a courier arrives with a parcel I just use it to open the parcel hatch for them to drop it off. All told it cost me around a grand to get installed and I retain full control of the door system and network integrity. The other advantage this is another camera that I can monitor the front of my house eliminating the need for an additional camera to cover the porch.
My friend also has one installed for his AirBNB flat, allowing him to not only see who’s coming and going but more importantly have forensic footage of entry for legal reasons. AirBNB have had complaints but nothing they can do as it’s an access control system.
