I posted this because some of this is starting to make sense to me now.
Edit:. I have seen so many movements going on in the industry that pointed to ASICs on the way to gamers, but those never showed up in the retail channel. This makes tons of sense and I will look more into it.
Not knowing exactly which asic was sold to miners, 500k would be a good round number. Verified with an AIB contact as well.
Big miners don't buy cards any more, they buy ASIC direct and build their own.
This will piss off AIBs as well.
