    Corsair just posted this funny viral video, offering you to well donate a thing or two. Giving Mining graphics card, a second life. It's a fun marketing ploy of course, and let me remind you that it...

    Today a ton of mining GPUS have been dumped on my local craigslist. Still at crappy prices.
    I praying they drop down and I can snag up 2 reference RX 480 8GB for now.

    Sad reality of GPUs today.

    Or... Could be a clever and subtle way showing interest of entering the market, following Asrock. :p

    And with all those gpu's that they "may" acquire, would surely help them entering sooner with a boost too... :D

    could be, no doubt. That's a big market. Maybe it requires more investments than just putting your logo on the product bought from China in bulk? idk.

    Corsair team is sly: having a big-eyed, red-hot lass, caressing a video card...man, that made me giggle.
    Nice gal, I would "donate " her some of my bit-loins.

    Keep in mind though that those GPUs were actually abused quite a bit, so unless it's a super bargain price I wouldn't risk it, since they might break down soon after purchase... :eek:

    But yes, cryptocurrency is at a new low right about now, if it goes much lower a lot more miners might drop the towel and call it a day.

    Yeah, GPUs are abused even more there. Think of running them when the ambient temp is already 40C.
