aagh! that point scores & sores
Yeah. Preorder as soon as they come up, regardless of price, cause the price will only go up after launch.
Thankfully I got my RTX 3090 FOR £1475.00 in January that will last me for years and will not be upgrading anymore I will get the next console, for me PC building , upgrading and gaming will die if pricing continues as is.
You probably said that with 20xx and 30xx coming out.
Just buy the GPU you want, mine the difference by night and youre golden, thats what i did.
Let's solve a problem caused by mining by mining some more. It's like saying that if somebody steals the catalytic converter from your car, you should just steal one yourself from any compatible car you spot out there, and then pay some random dude, who doesn't ask too many questions, to weld it in place. Of course your victim will then do the same, and so forth. A modern problem solved.
Only thing is that i didnt steal anything from anyone. If you wanna play self righteous then go see where the minerals for production of most of your high tech electronics come from.
You think your 2015. GPU that you got for a low low price is more ethical to these guys in the article? I'd think twice...
The world needs way more fixing than stopping mining so you could game at 4k. Just get in with the program, we destroying this world, might as well enjoy it.
I believe the crash of some crypto currencies is nearing. Oh, how some people will be shocked who have hoarded many GPUs for mining. A very positive outcome would be that we can buy rather cheap used GPUs early next year.
I guess this new Super series will have it's period when it's actually sold for gamers. Not a bad move by Nvidia by any means, since the current models are likely to be replaced and eventually the Super products priced the same.
The 4xxx series... is named after Linda Lovelace? Because the price could suggest this.
Well the 20xx super cards slotted right between the non ti an ti versions ..... So more refined binning i guess ? I do not think they want to break the mind share that the ti ones are the top dogs on their category.
These GPU prices are going to kill PC gaming for years to come.
How about Santa Claus, you believe in him too? Wishing and believing dont make anything true im afraid. Theres way too much capital invested into crypto to just disappear over night. I actually hope it will transition to POS protocols because the energy needed to sustain this POW network is rather silly and largely unnecessary.
No, they will just stagnate the graphic improvements a bit.
It does not stagnate graphics at all only our ability to buy them.
higher margins => higher profit => record income => higher r&d budget
on the contrary,we're seeing the highest performance increase in the recent years with rx6000/ampere,and it's only gonna pick up more pace when they start using multiple dies.
when was the last time a new xx80 card just massacred the prev gen xx80Ti like 3080 did and amd had an even faster one (1440p rasterized at least) at 50 dollars less (theoretically).
So RTX 4000 could arrive before RTX 3000?
Long tern it might though, If only miners can buy GPU then what's the point of doing R&D for gaming? How do you sell to the investor you'll invest money to improve gaming performance when pretty much only miners buy the higher end models directly from manufacturers?
People who fail to see the problem with not being able to buy a computer puzzle me. The fact some people think computers are just for gaming is crazy. Computers as well as GPU are used for a lot more things than just gaming. They are vital to our society. I have no problem with small miners. But i have a big problem with manufactures selling their cards directly to mining farms in bulk preventing other people the opportunity to buy them.
Mining is too volatile for GPU manufacturers to base long term planning for. They have to continue R&D for gaming as the only stable way to ensure a smooth continuity for their business, as its still the mainstay of their business. What if the mining market crashes or is no longer profitable enough for GPUs to be used in mining? With no R&D for gaming, it would leave GPU makers in the lurch.
Does Nvidia have any kind of time frame as to when they will be releasing affordable video cards?
They said that they don't expect decent supply in 2022.
So maybe 2023...
Good luck Nvidia
