NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti comes back due to high demand

Another surprising piece of news. VideoCardz writes NVIDIA has resurrected its over 4-years old GeForce GTX 1050 Ti GPU due to high demand from video card makers for low-end SKUs. After two years of not being available anymore, this low-end Pascal model is making a comeback. This is getting ridiculous.
The 4GB graphics cards will certainly not deliver a high-end experience, but there is a good reason why NVIDIA is focusing on this SKU. Firstly, the supply of low-end GPUs is really low. The global pandemic has substantially increased the demand for entertainment and not all customers are willing to spend hundreds of dollars for a new graphics card. Wider availability of RTX 2060 and GTX 1660 would certainly release some pressure on supply channels. Meanwhile, retailers are to witness the popularity of the RTX 3060 model, which should launch two weeks from now.
A quick search on NewEgg reveals GeForce GTX 1050 Ti video cards are in stock, with pricing ranging from $189.99 to a totally insane $798.98. Wild times.
