    What if the crypto craze never ends?

    still predicting a crash to happen sometime at or before the end of summer. If a crash does not happen i would have to assume GPU production would ramp up. Why would amd nvidia not take the $$? This would take until 2022 most likely though

    What is your "coping" strategy for the time until you can get a latest-model Nvidia/AMD GPU?

    These PS games are ok but honestly a bit of a let down so far. So far GOW and Ratchet and Clank (ps4 and the new ps5 one) not as good as their originals. The PS5 controller is definitely awesome though. Not far into last of us so far but seems more like a movie with a few solid snake element...

    Just need the ps5 (including ps4 games i never played) backlog to last until fall. Strongly suspect crypto hard crash by then.

    SSD HDD shortages due to crypto mining

    people smokin something in this thread. outside of the deep dark web and offshore gambling there's no real transactions being done in crypto. even in "countries with failing fiat" crypto transactions are minutia and ephemeral. crypto will continue in this state until one of the altcoins that...

    thankfully you dont need a good card for valheim and it's WAY better than any of the AAA releases

    Official NVIDIA Ampere In-Stock Thread

    nvidia doesn't need to sell direct to consumer when they can just use the cards themselves to mine

    Sony GDM-FW900 - NIB

    the new strobed 240+ LCDs that give CRT motion unfortunately have really terrible black levels (see oculus quest 2). CX came out with a ton of bugs. OLEDs with functional BFI at 240hz+ would be nice, can only hope it happens next few years.

    Sony GDM-FW900 - NIB

    I think you guys are missing the point that it's a collectible now. Yes the average joe bloe shouldn't go out and buy an FW900 for over $500ish expecting it to be some kind of better value or holy grail compared to current tech (it's the bestALLaround but OLED better blacks etc, strobed 360hz...

    [H] Stock Alerts, Tips & Tears for AMD, Nvidia, Intel, PS5, XBOX

    Yes exclusives for PS5 and also the controllers are better (well supposedly) + I can use the controllers for PC games. Xbox also just has a stupid name and aesthetics. Also the whole xbox one disc resale restrictions fiasco still lingers in some minds. Both sold out but PS5 anecdotally harder...

    Ryzen 5 5600X At Microcenter $299

    Anyone else in the boat where I don't really feel like upgrading CPU until i can upgrade GPU (ie waiting to get an ampere or big navi before getting new ryzen)?

    Future of Blu-Ray vs Streaming?

    Since when is Disney+ touted as a high quality? Amazon 4k Firestick plays shows like the expanse pretty decently if your internet is fast. HTPC with eARC (or cloned hdmi 2.1 out) to high quality AVR can produce what a quality 4k UHD blu-ray player can

    Sony GDM-FW900 - NIB

    High end CRTs like fw900 had fast enough refresh for flicker to be a nonissue

    Sony GDM-FW900 - NIB

    ive owned both FW900 and LGCX. Something tells me youve owned neither. they are both bit overrated. plasma relatively underrated. without bfi or strobing, interpolation barely makes motion on OLED just passable on low frame rate content. if I could get high end plasma with 1:1 pulldown i...
