A couple of days ago there was a report about a shortage of NVIDIA GPUs, caused by higher than anticipated demand from the Chinese market. BenchLife provides an update and claims the supply issues are now resolve, there's enough supply of high-end video cards and prices are returning to normal.

According to the report, a number of NVIDIA cards were in high demand, this includes the high-end GeForce GTX 980 and GeForce GTX 980 Ti, but also the entry-level GeForce GTX 750 Ti.
The supply issues were top-to-bottom but more specifically related to the GeForce GTX 980 and GeForce GTX 980 Ti. Both of which are high-end solutions based on the Maxwell architecture. Both these graphics card were available in limited quantities due to which, the price surged by 15% but that seems to be sorted out with the supply coming back to normal. The demand for these cards is still high, but the prices have been adjusted back to normal. Another card in the series that was facing shortages is the GM107 based, GeForce GTX 750 Ti. This card is very popular among entry level gamers and PC builders as it offers good performance for MOBA games which are a rising trend in the APAC market. The GeForce GTX 950 is also available in good supply but demand for the card hasn’t picked up much compared to the GTX 750 Ti due to its low cost.
