NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 making comeback as AMD can not meet RX 5700 XT demand?

GamersNexus claims AMD is unable to meet the high demand for its Radeon RX 5700 XT video card. Word on the street is that there's an expected shortage caused by high demand, as supply of Navi 10 GPUs isn't scaling with the high demand. As such, NVIDIA partners are reportedly ordering a bunch of GeForce RTX 2070 GPUs to fill this gap.

The RTX 2070 largely disappeared from the map but now NVIDIA's add-in board partners are prepping a comeback of this SKU:
NVIDIA's current product stack has the original RTX 2060 at $349, the RTX 2060 Super at $399, and the RTX 2070 Super at $499. The RTX 2070, which is outperformed by the $399 Radeon RX 5700 XT, was practically phased out from NVIDIA's product-stack as it was succeeded by the RTX 2070 Super at its $499 price-point. With the RTX 2070 making a comeback, it would be interesting to see what its price-point will be. There is a gap between the $399 RTX 2060 Super, and the $499 RTX 2070 Super, although the performance gap between the RTX 2060 Super and the RTX 2070 is a paltry 4 percent, which is easily closed by moderately overclocking the RTX 2060 Super. As of this writing, both pricing and availability of the RX 5700 XT appear normal.
