    Desktop GPU Sales Hit 20-Year Low

    Makes sense to me; the rich are still rich so they can buy 4090's and others; the poor and middle class have (or are in the process of) being decimated.

    Asus ROG Zephyrus G15 Laptop GA503QR 15.6" QHD 2560x1440 (5900HS/16GB/1TB)

    Posting my laptop for sale here before I send it off to ebay. Asus Zephyrus G15 with 16GB RAM, QHD screen and RTX 3070. I'm discounting it a bit because the screen has little flecks on it - I bought it like this but never bothered getting them out because I never really noticed them that much...

    NVIDIA's RTX 4080 Problem: They're Not Selling & MSRP Doesn't Exist

    Generally agree here. Though personally, I doubt that these other markets are going to be able to fill the gap, however. And the reasons are (ir)rationality and expectations of return. i don't think there is a market replacement for armies of rabid GPU miners. Every other market is far too...

    NVIDIA's RTX 4080 Problem: They're Not Selling & MSRP Doesn't Exist

    Here's an idea, NVIDIA... IF not having crypto miners sucks so badly for sales.... Why not start funding existing proof of work coin projects that are committed to proof of work mining? *insert memes of gamers collectively puking here*

    NVIDIA's RTX 4080 Problem: They're Not Selling & MSRP Doesn't Exist

    who gives a shit, there is such a glut of GPU's out there you might as well just go buy a 3000 series or even 5000/6000 series AMD and be done with it.

    Visiontek Mystery boxes are back

    Maybe Visiontek should simply ship their mystery box customers a pound of sand? Or perhaps they should just have every team member take turns taking a dump in a box. Then, ship the box of excrement with a picture of the team member(s) inside. Or, to make things more interesting, put a...

    3'rd largest coin miner declares bankruptsy

    You linked to an American financial media outlet which I automatically dismiss as whole or partial lies. You should understand that American media has, quite literally, zero credibility and everyone should immediately assume that whatever they say is a lie until fully proven otherwise beyond any...

    Wraith Ripper.... compatible with Epyc?

    I've got an Epyc 7532 coming and a Gigabyte mz32-ar0 ... will the Wraith Ripper cooler work with Epyc? I thought all Threadripper coolers were socket SP3 compatible, but wanted to make sure.

    Newegg Open Box Supermicro boards.... take a chance?

    Too much damage has been done to their open box reputation from all I'm seeing. They probably just need to spin up a company that dumps their returned stock through Ebay

    Gigabyte X570 GAMING X vs Asus TUF GAMING X570-PLUS (WI-FI)

    Looking at one of these boards. I read that the Asus board has better VRM's. Which board is generally considered more desirable? I'm going to be sticking 128GB of RAM on this thing and using it for database work and virtualization. I looked at B550 also, but I'm looking for lots of port...

    Newegg Open Box Supermicro boards.... take a chance?

    If theyre resorting to passing losses on to customers via deception then thats the mark of a very distressed company IMO. No telling what theyd do in that case.

    Newegg Open Box Supermicro boards.... take a chance?

    This is a very good point. If they send me a fuboard I would just send a picture to Gamers Nexus and then Newegg would proceed to get their shit pushed in.

    Newegg Open Box Supermicro boards.... take a chance?

    Yeah I like not losing money so thank you for helping me not lose money. The only caveat I can see is if that allstate insurance policy you can buy at checkout for $60 would actually pay in the event that I got screwed by Newegg. Essentially selling the board to the Insurance company but I have...

    Newegg Open Box Supermicro boards.... take a chance?

    I'm looking for a H12SSL ... would prefer 10gbe. Newegg has a -NT for $450 but from what you all say it's probably got bent pins or has been shat on repeatedly.

    Newegg Open Box Supermicro boards.... take a chance?

    I'm not up on that one - was there some fiasco with refurbs? This board I'm looking at appears to be open box (though not sure what that even means - could have been returned from RMA?)
