    Crypto Miners, Not Gamers, Were The Primary Buyers of Graphics Cards Since 2021, Almost $15 Billion Worth of GPU Sales Reported

    Well. I think there's a lot more that goes into pricing than is controlled by changes in demand. I'm absolutely sure there are actuaries that do this for production process planning. I was typing up a treatise on the various ways demand (and related) factors can change pricing, but I sliced my...

    Crypto Miners, Not Gamers, Were The Primary Buyers of Graphics Cards Since 2021, Almost $15 Billion Worth of GPU Sales Reported

    In fairness, I think the argument is a bit more nuanced than that. It is indisputable that there's an effect on demand from mining. The argument is more over the relative price impact.

    Crypto Miners, Not Gamers, Were The Primary Buyers of Graphics Cards Since 2021, Almost $15 Billion Worth of GPU Sales Reported

    There are no less than 10 people on this forum, and more in the local area, that are using cards from me, used for this purpose - with full and complete disclosure. If you know and trust the supplier, there is no reason not to use the cards at a favorable price.

    We all need a little more of this in our lives. NFT Market Collapses Just As Square Enix Sells Tomb Raider To Bet Big On Blockchain

    There's a lot to unpack here. The Long and Short of it belongs in soapbox, though.

    We all need a little more of this in our lives. NFT Market Collapses Just As Square Enix Sells Tomb Raider To Bet Big On Blockchain

    I have thought about it, considerably. I think there is a significant (to me) difference between an authenticated or licensed print of an existing and published work, or the rights to the same, than a newly fabricated imagine that has ZERO associated value, other than the hustle for the rights...

    Yeah yeah yeah, but what about the XBOX's? GPUs are readily available - I get it. A halo series x? Tricky.

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

    What is gamepass ultimate? I'm considering this bundle - but really all I want is the Xbox and a controller. I've been playing fortnite with my kid and split screen sucks. I don't play anything else. In fact, even as I type that I can see I'm better off just finding a local pick up used...

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti is real

    I'd go with that as a likely point. Then again, given the MASSIVE secondary market for GPU's right now, I'd consider coming in extremely strong - maybe ridiculously so.

    (DEAD) Milwaukee SHOCKWAVE Impact Duty Alloy Steel Drill and Screw Driver Bit Set (192-Piece) $43.99

    Not bad. I run through them pretty quickly and lose the hell out of the bits. For me, better to buy packs of 25 or 50 in each size and use them as consumables. Which...they are.

    Vox Media Goes After YouTubers That Mocked The Verge PC Build Video

    I remember Kyle doing a video where he very clearly disclaims, "we aren't saying you should do it this way, or that it's the best way - but it's how we're going to do it." It was probably application of thermal paste or something.

    AMD X Apple unveil the Radeon W6800X Duo

    Eh. Certain use cases probably scale better than others. I am content to leave it in the rear view mirror. No support. Terrible scaling. Double the usual double investment now. I'm getting soft in my old age.

    Scalpers Have Sold 50,000 Nvidia RTX 3000 GPUs

    Your answer to being angry about people buying too many graphics cards is to make spending on GPU's illegal. You do know this isn't insulin, right?

    Scalpers Have Sold 50,000 Nvidia RTX 3000 GPUs

    Hummm. Well. I'm not really feeling an upgrade for a while. I've been so busy at work - I haven't had time to play anything. I don't believe my machine has been on for other-than-work purposes in several months. There are millions of decent GPU's available, but if you want the Patek Philippe of...

    Yeah, but it's not like they produced millions of bad airbags. They allegedly materially misrepresented an outlook to investors with the intent of inflating stock price. So, they said they have a new, better airbag on the way in the near term - when in fact they were having manufacturing...

    Starlink Public Beta About to Happen?!?!

    I guess this wouldn't work great for a mobile use - like an RV? I've been considering buying one, gutting it, putting comfy leather furniture and a wet bar in the back - then hire someone to drive me around on a road trip while I get wrecked in my mobile lounge.
