I agree with this as being the main issue.
I work for an OEM system integrator and we are still having problems securing orders of more than a few pieces at a time for any RTX 30 series cards and we have a direct line to the major distribution channels so bots and other normal consumer hurdles are not an issue. They are just still not meeting demand after 5 months and its pathetic.
