    According to sources privy to the matter, Digitimes is reporting that Gigabyte has a massive inventory of graphics cards from a loss of interest in the cryptocurrency mining sector. Also a bug in NVIDIA RTX series is expected to increase Gigabyte's expenses. These factors may swing its 4Q18 financial report to a net loss.

    A bug occurred in Nvidia's new top-end GPUs is also expected to increase Gigabyte's expenses, the sources noited. With competition in the gaming and server markets remaining fierce, 2019 may become a challenging year for the Taiwan-based brand vendor to achieve profitability, the market watcher added.

    Only if all the other AIBs are on board with doing the same. Gigabyte would have done so by now, for sure, but price fixing and all...

    That's merely my hunch.

    It's happening. These leaks of massive inventory stocks that have been floating around are finally being show in quarterly reports.

    Vega64 I might buy it for $300 with three free games I can also do 1070Ti for around $200 with free games.

    Let me know when you see a 1070ti for $200! I'd be in. I have been buying parts for a new build. The GPU might be my most expensive item. (Microcenter has the Ryzen 2700X for like $250 right now - tempting...)

    Well honestly they really need to work on their Qc and pcb/shroud designs.
