Nvidia thinks they can pull a fast one on gamers looking to grab an RTX 3060, but we know you're smarter than that - Let's dig deeper and see if we can figure out why they're launching cryptocurrency mining cards...

  • So, due to their inability to provide enough supply to keep demand with gaming GPUs, they're going to now SPLIT production between a dedicated, lower tier "gaming only" GPU, and everything else that's able to mine. That's how I see it. They're setting aside the vomit bucket for us to feast on solely while allowing miners to claim the rest.

  • I have mixed feelings. Yes, Nividia like every company cares about its value and it looks like miners are way better customers so they are handled beforehand. Big surprise for gamers when market reality hits them with words "You are irrelevant bruh, get rich and come back later". Nividia will rather become a company dedicated to miners rather than stay with gamers since one is a world future and gamers are... gamers. Being the powerhorse for worldchanging projects that are strictly connected with cryptocurrencies is more important than some stupid raytracing for tech nerds. Sorry for that honesity.

    • No, it doesn’t really change the supply and demand calculus. As Linus said, silicon production is limited. Nvidia already produces as many chips as they can. Producing a separate crypto line can only cut into gaming chip production. Basically, just imagine they took every 30 series card they make, and simply repackaged half as crypto cards, and then somehow made it impossible to use that half for any other purpose. The net result is half as many unlocked gaming gpus on the market. It’s completely illogical to suggest that this strategy could help alleviate the problem with availability of gpus for gamers, in any way.

    nAnXietynAnXiety2 時間 前
  • Hold on now.. So, from what I understand in regards to the information in the video. NVidia, is locking out certain new cards for crypto mining? And selling other new cards in regards to 100% supporting that same mining? Ummmmm.. if you BUY the card you OWN that hardware and you can build whatever you really want with that hardware without asking the manufacturer permission.. because again.. you own it. If NVidia is really doing this, then there are OTHER COMPANIES that are in collaboration with Nivdia on the side generating money off of this whole collaboration deal. Time to start digging deeper in regards to this.

  • I sold 30+ RX 580 ex-mining cards for 1/3 of the buying price in only 5 days in 2018. They were standard cards not mining edition. My friend bought 18 mining edition cards with only single dvi output, and he still got 5 of them left until now, he sold the card for 1/5 of buying price and nobody wanted them. Linus were right, gamers will gets many perfectly working ex-mining cards very cheap in the stores when coins come crashing, and by specializing their products, only e-waste are generated.

  • honestly at this point crypto currencies are doing so much harm to the environment that the good they were invented to achieve is completely negated. it feels like crypto is serving the rich, just like regular currency or other assets, so it should be regulated properly. just look at all the miners in Iran (cheap electricity), the people there are running out of electricity.
