Wouldn't the proper agency to contact be ATARI?
Leave it to China.. First they're taking all our GPU's and now there's a 21 ton rocket that is gonna crash into who knows where.
Come on man, lets put the space force into action!
Took me way too long to figure this out.
I tried saying Atari out loud and thinking where's the pun, then thought Atari as in people who can make a crater full of stuff disappear in the desert...
Only then did the Asteroids part occur to me.
As in the obvious meaning.
At times I'm just drifting in space...
(Yeah that was bad. I'll think of something solid next time...)
Keep it up bro!
Thanks! My wife often tells me to keep it down...
The subject no longer matters, you're hard wired!
Imagine not being able to get a RTX 3000 series before this happens... yikes.
Wouldn't it be worse to get one just before this happens?
Aah, my new card, finally... kaboom!
Incidentally I did the unthinkable and bought a RX 6800 XT as some were in stock soo.... when was this going to happen?
I can still cancel the order
(Yes it was ridiculously expensive, cost more than all the other parts in my PC together.
Yes I have been vocal here about not buying now.
Yes I am weak.)
*"Another one bites the dust" music chimes in*
Nooooooo, why do you think so?
My moment of weakness fortunately came before prices went whacko.
Unfortunately it was after being unsuccessful buying a 3080 for approaching 3 months when some 3090s were actually found in stock!
I saw very bad things coming with the gfx card market and cos I can stretch this card to 4 years use, it wont actually cost much more per year, so nabbed one quick smart!
I consider the price of the 3090 to be whacko in the first place but now that a 3080 costs even more I'm smiling a little about the price, even more cos its a great experience.
Well done getting a top card, smile and enjoy it, dont look back!
I feel really, really, really stupid for canceling my order for 6800 before Christmas.
Reason: 780 EUR too expensive..
Ofc no idea of stock either but had I kept my order I would have gotten one in January IIRC.
But completely OT. And thanks!
What did the processor core say to the others in a manufacturing plant?
- We are all going to die!
(You thought I was done? Noooo!)
