One of the largest computer component e-tailers in Germany has pulled a lot of video cards from its website because it can no longer get inventory.
In an e-mail to Tom's Hardware, MindFactory explains the cryptocurrency boom resulted in such huge demand for Radeon and GeForce video cards that they now expect a delivery time of at least three months.
Additionally, MindFactory also cancelled existing orders as the delivery time is suddenly a lot longer than expected. The webshop says the whole Ethereum mining situation affects the whole of Germany, maybe even whole Europe.
MindFactory told us that, in addition to pulling graphics cards from its shelves, it also canceled existing orders. "We had to cancel a lot of orders because of cards we can not get anymore," the company said in an email to Tom's Hardware. MindFactory customers were informed of the cancellation via email.
The company is no longer listing any AMD Radeon RX 480, 570 or 580 video cards on its website but still has decent supply of most NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10 series video cards.
