    I cant agree separated GFX cards lines does not help the games - IF THE 50% cards were gaming only (as u suggest) that would mean 50% MORE cards for gamers. As it is now, Id say 5% goes to gamers but with spiked prices. Yes, 50% would still not be enough, but it still would be night and day difference. And the prices of the gaming cards would not be AS MUCH spiked by the mining demand. Sure, it would not cover the demand, so the price would be higher, but NOT that much. Now the price of cards is strictly related to the price of crypto - if you can pay your card in lets say 3 months mining, you dont care if it costs 4k euro, because in 6 months you have a free cards an 4k euro in a pocket. For the gamer tho, the situation is very different and indeed dire, when his wallet competes in this scenario :/

    PS: Banning crypto is not the solution and its not even possible to be honest. And thats good IMO. I dont want this new decentralized money to be banned. Nobody financially literate should want that... money as it is now is a bad joke, papers which are being "printed" (printing is a euphemism - they are created in a computers with one click - BAM!!! 2 trilion USD!!! There goes your savings) - this USA insanity which is happening right now will be a disater for all of us :/

    Little by little, there was 5 units in stock of RX 6700XT from Asrock, they were at normal price (575,53 Euro)... but just 5 units.

    Banning would be as stupid as actual situation...
    But it really need a regulation, right now crypto currency is far far away from your idealistic description...
    The problem is that it create poor people (and more when it will fall... and it will fall again), limitate innovation and production all around the world due to bad use of ressources, make price rise while people earn less... and so and so and so more.
    The problem is indeed the abusing greedy people, and a regulation could solve this.

    Here is how Nvidia has been BSing all day. Despite the low availability and huge demand, they allowed most of the gaming cards to be sold to miners at normal prices, then they "decreased" the mining performance so that we gamers can actually buy one but at an almost 50% price increase. How BS is that lol?

    Not excited about this card at all and that's only because, right now, I still cannot buy a GTX 3080 here in the UK for the MRSP some seven plus months after that card launched so the chances of getting this one any time in 2021 is going to be near to zero. Scalpers and the chip shortages are certainly not helping but, yeah, I don't think 2021 is going to be a good year to upgrade my PC. My other option would have been to forget about upgrading my PC and just get an Xbox Series X instead for the cross platform titles like Forza and Halo but that is also impossible to get hold of.

    2021 is already 10x worse than 2020 in just about every way.

    They are banning petrol cars because of the damage they do to the environment despite the hugely powerful oil lobby, how much money it makes governments, and how much the general public love their ICE cars. Can't see why they won't ban crypto which is very damaging to the environment, has practically no lobbying power, makes governments no money, and is hated by everyone but the miners.

    Unless there are...

    - completely mining resistant
    - dont have to refresh product page for availability
    - selling at MSRP

    Because crypto curency is the emerged part of the iceberg, and we need the underwater part, and we don't have anything to replace it...

    I'm a miner and gamer, i see no issue with this.
    Manufacturers sending warehouse scale mining farms hundreds of cards at a time is the problem, not folks like me getting 24/7 use outta my card i worked hard to get.
    Agree?

    how bout if you do mine you do dont antagonize people here with that fact and trying to make things worse. do what you want with card but dont come here and advertise your are mining and claim your not part of problem.

    Fact stand if wasnt for mining crap GPU cost would not so stupid and Scalping would not be that bad.

    Hilbert and mod seriously need to make Mining only sections and moderate it to keep all that stuff in that sections so there less hostility over it cause some people like to come here advertise they are doing and how there is no issue cause of mining.

    Hostility over this is only gona get worse and people mining that come here and say there is no issue... and ask for help at same time just making thing worse.
