Pick up a Geforce now before retailers raise the cost of those to make up for the lack of AMD cards.

The funny thing is that with Litecoin, as popularity increases, actually production rates will decrease as the block become harder to mine.

Individual user production rates will be lower with the same speed (no additional hardware added), but the network will still have an average block time of 2.5 minutes. Network block production rate will be the same.

Then why is this in the Press Release and Tech News if it's all hearsay? Shouldn't it more be in the rumour hill section?

I think Sky meant that the difficulty of producing LTC (^15%) is hearsay.

Although yes, this thread probably does belong in rumour...

That was still my question, I see no official source stating the inventory issues, so why is it not a rumour thread?
