Why are you doing this?
1080s are swallowed by demand in a breath. Increasing the production is a problem due to [reason X (and possibly reasons Y and Z)]. Increasing production (planned or unplanned) is impossible. Hence that reason/those reasons are a problem.
No need to get riled up on how someone is spinning it. 10 or 10,000 cards per day worldwide, planned or unplanned, supply is not enough. Can we now please focus on discussion of what the possible reasons are
, and if there are any reasons that hamper the numbers NVidia expected to sell, or if they just cannot increase production volume because they underestimated the market?
Normally you build up stock and then launch a card, Nvidia clearly did not do this. This means they released the cards way too early. Why did they do this? at first I though they simply wanted to undercut the competition. However, AMD's lineup isn't competing with their cards. In addition to that undercutting the competition would require you to have cards to sell in order to prevent them from buying AMD's cards when they get released.
I think Nvidia launched early to use the "Our card is out of stock everywhere!" as a red herring for "It takes another two months for production to catch up"
