  • AMD and other chip manufacturers will need to change in the next generation of chips to reduce power consumption to 35w or below.Power consumption is becomming more important than performance.

  • shits only gonna get more expensive. Best Buy doing online only doesn't help much but trying to get it there is better than trying on Newegg. Shortages are gonna get worse, snatched products to be scalped will get more expensive. How long will people "hold the line"? I had to buy my 5600x at $65 over MSRP on Amazon cuz it was the only one available since it was sold out everywhere else. This shit is only gonna get worse.

  • What really irks me is, I work hard and save money and I have some cash and I want a card like everyone else but I'm not spending 1000-1500 on a card from a non-authorized reseller with no return policy, no nothing, and not the original purchaser. So even though I bought the card 'new', its 2nd hand. FUNK DAT. People that are buying cards from these idiots are also idiots. Put them all in a boat and shove it out to sea with no oars. The world needs less of this.

  • Nvidia and AMD don't care about their gamer community anymore, they've been proving it for like a year now. They just want to release cards and they see the miners buying them so they just see money. That's it, they don't care.

  • I like the format your venting is appreciated. I have a couple of question about the the video format though. If you were playing in 2560x1440 why upload in 1080p? Is there a big enough performance hit using the the on board encoder that it warranted using your external capture rig? I'm just asking out of curiosity. From what I have herd the hevc encoder is supposed to be really good on amd cards (not that you can stream with it anywhere). I know you and joe are set up for 4k editing so I wouldn't think it's an editing issue.

Had to continually hit refresh for every step of purchasing, add to cart, had hit add to cart multiple times, then shipping address and payment, hit continue multiple times, then hit submit order and it went through. Congrats to those who were able to get one.

  • "No spark of interest." Yup, pretty much. It's likely to be this way until the crypto currency bubble pops and then the market will be flooded with ultra-cheap high-end graphics cards (one can hope).

  • Yes, Crypto miners burn more power than small countries. The carbon footprint of individual miners is probably the size of some small towns.. It's a black market, sex/drug trafficking, money laundering favorite (Dirty money)... And yeah, it's an abjectly greedy, screw everyone else, self-serving ideology and pursuit.... But yeah, to each their own, free country, free market capitalism etc.. Just the latest example for why 'rich' people have often been lamented by most, we all know what it takes, the heads you need to step on to get there, the environmental damage so often done in the process.. All just so that rich dudes can buy Lambos for their kids, who they then proceed to crash into crowds at local car meets.

  • I understand the frustration due to mining, but maybe there is a light at the end of the tunnel. ETH developers (ironically) do not like GPU miners, and want to remove ETH from the network that allows GPUs to mine ETH (This will be ETH2 proposed for early next year). The first stage of this removal will take place in July (It is called EIP-1559). This will remove a vast amount of the fees that miners currently receive from mining ETH. If the estimated 70% reduction in profits comes to fruition (as predicted by big mining YT channels), you could see a lot of miners who recently got in on the wave (bought all those 30 series cards) start to sell their cards when they realize they have to put in a lot of work and effort into constantly checking other coin profitability and set up all the wallets needed for these other coins and then trade them to fiat currency on random exchanges etc.). I am not promising anything and no-one can predict the future, but food for thought.

Both Nvidia and Amd and all suppliers should RUN a ONE PER House Hold Recorded Delivery HAS GOT TO BE SIGNED FOR and they KEEP A RECORD OF THESE SOLD TO , SUPPLIED WITH A GPU WITHIN THE LAST 12 MONTHS OR MAYBE ONLY 6 MONTHS WITH A 1 PER HOUSE HOLD MAX !!!! Sold to and no P.O. boxes or any other LOOP Holes allowed !!!!! Haa Haa that will slow down the Miners and Option 2 Maybe Offer a 1 for 1 Swop Upgrade Method That has to be tested and working fine To Qualify for A upgraded GPU exchange scheme !!! P.S. HOPEFULL THAT WILL HELP SORT OUT SUPPLY PROBLEMS FOR US POOR GAMERS COMMUNITY . . . . .AND SLOW DOWN THE GREEDY MINERS OUT THERE !!!!!

  • This is kind of like what is happening with the consoles, the scalpers/bots have realized that they can make money buying these and flipping them on e-bay/amazon/FB/etc. Even low end card that have no crypto-mining use are being sold for 3-4 times MSRP. It is kind of a feeding frenzy by these scalpers and they are moving so far down the stack that even 10 year old cards are being jacked up in price. Not sure if it will ever end even if the crypto-mining stuff goes away.

  • Using graphics cards for mining is stupid and inefficient. They can't even decide if they want to burn fees or use proof of work. They only use graphics cards because they are scarce. Proof of scarcity. Graphics card companies should build miners and mine selfishly and not sell cards at all.

  • Putting up a warehouse of 100's or 1000's of GPU's mining away is far from decentralizing a currency last I checked. No hate. Just pointing out a contradiction. That said, there's no reason a gamer can't mine using a card or a few in their off time. Crypto is good in principle. Not perfect by any means in practice.

  • The rant is both highly valuable and deserved given the current environment. We share thy frustration. I'm working with the XFX Radeon RX580 I was fortunate enough to purchase at msrp before the 'crash' for $225 via newegg I recently checked the price of said card, I hope you're sitting down. $999 for 8GB GDDR6 @ 256bit I laughed so hard I nearly shat myself. Last week I built a AMD Ryzen 3 3200G based system for my mother. She's no 'gamer' or 'enthusiast' by any means but after 1 hour testing Starcraft 2 @ 1080p at ultra settings (TV resolution limitation) temps never rose above 48C no gpu 16GB DDR4 @ 3600Mhz I am seriously impressed with the onboard Vega graphics on the CPU air cooled system $470 for the build after taxes and shipping.

  • As a cryptocurrency miner I would like to say I found your rant to be fair. I also understand the need to rant. Being a fan of the Chicago Bears, ranting as a form to dispel one's inner anger is something I'm quite familiar with. Concerning your point about the environmental impact of crypto mining I share your concern, but also would like to point out that the 3rd Global Cryptoasset Benchmarking Study published by the University of Cambridge found up to 39% of all proof of work mining globally is conducted using renewable sources of energy, mostly hydroelectric power. Yes, there are improvements to be had, but please know this concern is not being overlooked by those in the crypto community. Thank you for all your videos. :)

  • When it comes to GPUs, what you're seeing is a market failure in economic terms. Demand outstripped supply, that's it. You can't "blame" mining for the fact that gamers can't buy GPUs in the same way you can't blame gamers for wanting them for cyberpunk or other games, or all the computer content creators like.. yourself. In economic terms you can't blame demand lol it's the market's job to keep up with demand, and that hasn't happened. In short, this type of market failure would normally require government intervention.

  • Do you know what upsets me more than the fact that you cant buy cards? That a mid range card is selling for as much as the "Ampere A100" equivelant card used to cost How much does the top tier card cost now? $12500 US MSRP The 3090 is not a top tier card, it is a lower top end that was put on an old node, the top tier card is on a new node, with almost double the transistor count. Quite literally, the 3090 is basically a 60 class card when compared to the product stack from 11 years ago Heck the dual die Ampere A100 equivelant from 2009 was only $500 But no, we're paying at least 13k before scalping/markup for just a single die, instead of $500 for 2 dies

  • Never mined a coin yet, but if I were a gamer - even on a budget - I would likely stretch a little bit (or beg, borrow, or steal $$) and even pay a moderate (if there is such a thing) scalping price to secure my card, and then mine the heck out of it the 14 hours a day I am not Gaming. Get my whole investment back over 10 months and then buy the card I "really wanted" but could never get! (I'm talking to YOU PowerColor Red Devil RX 6900 XT!!!!) I wonder if that's part of what's happening - gamers who would hold off another year before upgrading their GPU, seeing how the mining could pay for their card right now, and that makes them jump into the fray...
