I understand perfectly. No, it's not good when your flagship card is 10 and 12. Maybe you need to say that outloud to yourself a few times and think about it more. I
No, there hasn't. No where near it either. That's why he doesn't understand and needs to say it out loud a few times and think about it more, lol.Has there ever been a time when the flagship item was the top seller?
This really should surprise no one. Despite everyone on hardware forums flashing their e-peen, the vast majority of the consumer market has always been in the mid-range, which is why people saying AMD is completely screwed because they can’t counter the 2080 Ti are completely off-base. This has always been the case, even before we got insane pricing from Nvidia this time around, and I see no reason for that to change in the future.The 2080 Super and Ti roll in at 10th and 12th on Amazon's best seller list. Fairly low for performance leaders. You would expect top 5, so I tend to agree on lower than average volume at the top end of Nvidia lineup and it's probably the outlandish pricing. Oddly enough, AMD last gen 570 and 580RX lead the pack.
I don’t think you understand what miners do to gpusWell I'm speaking of new cards, I trust used cards about as far as I can throw the fat fuck who thought he could make some money mining with it who's selling it. That said, yeah if there was a used card for really cheap I would think about it, but then the thought would end with "why are they selling it for so cheap" which would kill any transaction. EVGA still selling B-stock for 5% off "MSRP", you just can't fucking win. But luckily my last upgrade 4 years ago is still relevant today.
Not sure if people went in the article but the actual figure being quoted seems pretty tame compared to the sensationalist headline.With OEM clients raising their stock-up demand, Graphics DRAM contract prices are projected to increase by over 5 percent QoQ, the highest among all memory products," TrendForce analyst Arvil Wu says..
Yeah, this is one thing to keep in mind.Not sure if people went in the article but the actual figure being quoted seems pretty tame compared to the sensationalist headline.
It wasn't really mentioned as much as the focus was on mining demand affecting prices but during the memory price run up in 2017 GGDR5 contract prices also more than doubled, resulting in an estimated BoM increase of around $50.
I'm actually saying the opposite. The article is quoting a 5% change QtoQ. Even if we assume the same trend over a year that would only be 20%. Whereas the 2017 memory price run up resulted in over 100% cost increases in VRAM prices in a shorter time period.Yeah, this is one thing to keep in mind.
This may result in a substantial and significant increase in VRAM cost.
