Oh no. Yeah that's been going on for awhile and I am sure will continue to.Do you think that NV is just now selling directly to miners? This has been going on literally for years.
I don't really have a problem with it, and even if I did, there wouldn't be a damn thing I could do about it.
I think people are trying to blame nVidia for the shortage of cards, when the reality is that the supply issues have a multitude of factors. Only 2 companies (how many fabs?) making chips on these advanced node processes. One of the required materials is in very short supply and has to be ordered 7 months ahead of time.. Global pandemic. Demand higher than it has ever been. 2 console launches competing for chips. Automotive industry crying about not ordering enough chips. Cell phones with a 2 year lifespan. Taiwan now dealing with covid outbreaks, and no one wants to give them any vaccine for fear of pissing off China.
If there was adequate supply, would you give a fuck that nVidia sells chips for mining purposes?
