    Analogue Pocket

    I've pre ordered this and mine won't come until Q4 either. It has a large high resolution screen, fpga, video output and Bluetooth controller connectivity with the dock and it's newer than my old modded GBA and GBA SP AGS 101. It isn't for most people since there are so many ways to play old...

    So is all this madness still in full swing?

    We definitely aren't arguing about the same thing. Miners pushed demand of New and used GPUs beyond supply. Once that happens, the whole market is fucked. If demand was 99% of available supply, GPUs would not double in price or more. If demand is 110% of supply, that's when the market get...

    So is all this madness still in full swing?

    We aren't arguing about the same thing. I'm arguing miners affected the entire GPU market, new and used. They don't just need one GPU, they need all available GPUs to increase the amount of money they make each day. It's insatiable demand. The PS5s are scarce because the market demand is about...

    So is all this madness still in full swing?

    You are welcome to say used PS4 prices are unreasonable, but they're still under MSRP. If you want to use work from home as an argument, I would agree if it was the end of 2020 before vaccines, but I can't agree with that argument today. People have mostly gone back into work or are using work...

    So is all this madness still in full swing?

    GPU shortage is worse. I can buy a used PS4 for reasonable prices, but I can't buy a GTX 1050ti or GTX 1650 or RX 5500XT for reasonable prices. If it was just gamers it wouldn't be this way. Older hardware should be cheaper, not selling above their original MSRP.

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Nerfs Not Only Ethereum Hash Rate But Also Other Coin Algorithms

    It's more like Nissan gimping the GTR when it knows you're on a public road instead of a track using GPS location. Porn is available without computers.

    The Great RTX 3080ti / 3070ti Scalper Event starts June 3rd

    Capcom's Monster Hunter mainline series. Monster Hunter world, Monster Hunter world Iceborne and the upcoming monster hunter rise. The story is garbage, but the gameplay is better than anything else I've played in the last decade on PC. I was done with MMORPGs by 2007 and competitive FPSs by...

    What's the truthful reason(s) for the GPU shortage?

    I can see it at work. We're seeing a drop in business, but the big dogs in the industry still have their product lines on schedule.

    What's the truthful reason(s) for the GPU shortage?

    This is a weird statement. Shortages aren't unique to toilet paper either. GPU shortages, the topic of the thread, has a much higher demand ceiling than electronic components for automotive. It is beyond issues caused by COVID 19 restrictions and forecasting.

    What's the truthful reason(s) for the GPU shortage?

    The automotive industry is a little different. 1. They cancelled their orders at the beginning of the pandemic and are at the back of the queue, trying to climb back up. 2. They are on older process nodes that aren't the same as gpus. 3. Their volumes are smaller than consumer electronics...

    Is There a Tech Worker 'Exodus' From the San Francisco Bay Area?

    Living in California, I don't see people moving out of California as a problem, for what ever reason. There's been so many people moving here over the decades, there was always going to be a breaking point. If living in California is untenable, by all means, find a better place to live your...

    Nikkei Claims Smaller, More Affordable Nintendo Switch Is Coming

    This finally sounds like a 3ds replacement. The switch portability is great around the house, but is isn't as great traveling on a train or on the plane like the 3ds. The switch with a case fills half my backpack, while a 3ds doesn't even take up a quarter of the space. I'll probably pick one...

    Second Apple Hardware Engineer Charged with Stealing Trade Secrets for China

    Proof... It's the internet. I'm not telling anyone on the internet my secrets. That may be something you like to do on your free time. When I see a story like this, I think Apple's layers of security almost failed entirely. It usually doesn't get this far with all the restrictions they already...

    Woman Sues US Border Agents over Seized iPhone

    I'm aware it isn't required. It is a choice. As long as it is a free choice, it shouldn't matter. A person should not be forced to wear it, but there should not be a rule/law banning it. Wearing hijab should not be the reason a person's phone is taken away while traveling back to their home...

    Sony’s New PlayStation Chief Hints at Portable Gaming Revival

    I hope they succeed with the new mobile console. Unfortunately, they always push their own proprietary memory instead of the standard SD cards. Nintendo is great with mobile, but it would better to have other choices than just them, Android and iOS.

    Report: Tesla Battery Reignited Days after Fiery Crash in Mountain View

    Engineering schools, at least the one I went to, did not emphasize practical knowledge as much as theoretical concepts. It's much cheaper to do so. It's up to the students to find internships to gain practical experience.

    Google Pixel Deal

    Well, that sucks. Sounds like the motherboard is dying from thermal cycling. I don't play games on my phone, so it never really gets hot and I have the extended warranty so Google will have to take care of it if it's a widespread issue like LGs phones.

    Google Pixel Deal

    You are mistaking the Nexus 5x (which boot looped on me) and other LG produced phones. I have the Pixel (HTC) now and I haven't seen any boot loops reported. It has other issues, but this isn't one of them.

    This housing boom is different from the previous ones in that overseas investors are the ones buying the homes to stash their wealth and with some US speculators and local home owners, but it's mostly all cash buyers. Many of these homes are left vacant, so it only exasperates the problem. The...

    To upgrade, or buy new?

    I lucked out and built my system with 8700k and a 1070 ti right at the beginning of the year before things got really crazy with GPU prices, but if I were buying today, it would be a pre built system. You won't be able to find a fair (msrp) deal on GPUs unless it's a part of a pre built PC or...
