I wrote this message from a PC that is actually used to do some REAL WORK, ie monitoring and supplying medical devices, that people with BROKEN BONES are being operated with, to get well.You DO realize, that there's an order-of-magnitude difference in the energy-consumption between Ethereum mining, and Bitcoin mining, and also, that computer chip that you're using to post this, used quite a bit of energy and water to manufacture. Maybe you should be getting on that bike as well...
I hear ya!If i knew he was gonna flip it to a miner, i wouldn't of sold it to him and kept it for myself.
?? It was a major problem in the last ether boom in 2017 or 2018 until ether crashed. It was a major problem in the Litecoin boom until that got unprofitable to mine on gpus like Hawaii.Again "GPU prints money" has been happening since 2010, yet it is only a major problem now
It sure does and by its definition pretty much any modern business is “scalping” reselling a product quickly to make a profit. This certainly is Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, Nordstroms, any fast casual food place. The definition is extremely broad.Merriam Webster says otherwise. Definition #3 when used as a transitive verb.
the part of the integument of the human head usually covered with hair in both sexes; the part of an animal (such as a wolf or fox) corresponding to the human scalp; a part of the human scalp with attached hair cut or torn from an enemy as a token of victory… See the full definitionwww.merriam-webster.com
I couldn't care less what idiocy is the normal, there in the US. You sell guns in donut shops, measure things in feet, legs, hands and stadium lengths, charge an arm and a leg for insulin shots and most people are one broken leg away from bankruptcy thanks to your stupid medical system.First sale doctrine. Here in the USA, for the most part, if it's a tangible good, if you can buy it on the open market, you can re-sell it on the open market, legally. You don't need a reseller license to use ebay, craigslist, offerup, etc.
Now run along little socialist gamer, and find some commie country with a top-down command economy to take you in and provide gpus for you at subsidized rates.
So, I've thought about this a bit lately. I don't care about chain of custody, but I would like something equivalent to SMART monitoring for these expensive GPUs. Maybe power on hours, average temperature, percentage of time above 90% utilization, etc.That's why GPUs need to have blockchain tech embedded in them for chain of custody. Show how many times the GPU has changed hands and also how much it has been used by who.
Things have gone from serious gamers to insane miners. A miner stresses a GPU far more than a gamer so even buying used GPUs after they flood the market due to crypto crash will still mean getting something with lower usable life. Solder joints may come loose due to past thermal stresses, capacitors may leak/burst or fans may fail prematurely. I'm sure no one wants any of these things happening to their $400 used entry level GPU, let alone the expensive ones.
Seriously or otherwise, I don't think the inflated market will hold. You'll have the fanatics who will do as you say but most won't. Burnout is real. Nvidia isn't as diversified yet to drop gamers unless they have miners.Oh, you just wait for the 4000 series pricing. It's going to be absolutely hilarious. The price doesn't matter anymore though because the entire 4000 series generation is going to get botted and scalped to death anyway. The whole generation of GPUs over the entire lifecycle are going to get botted and scalped. Nearly every single one. You watch. Day one will will go from "coming soon" to "out of stock" in a single monitor frame, and 30 seconds later there will be thousands of scalped offers at 3X msrp all over the online markets, and it will stay that way until the 5000 series drops 2 years later. And gamers will buy those cards at 3X msrp without batting an eye. They won't even take time to blink, they will just make a fist and start slamming their keyboards until their credit card information goes through.
Gas went up in my town by 10-12 cents in a day this week. One station near me is $4.01/gal cash price. Credit is 10 cents more. Thats for 87 octane. I imagine by the summer it will be almost double what we paid here in early 2020.It's not only neon that's affected, so I don't think problems will be limited to just the semiconductor industry.
Everything is getting shockingly expensive right now. F.x. petrol (gasoline to North Americans) / diesel is right on the path to set a new price record here in Denmark. The previous record was back in '82 I think.
I'd be 100% OK with that. As long as the integrated graphics can run a desktop and play a youtube video, that's enough for me and for lots of people. It would be great to not have to buy crap used GT 710's just to boot and upgrade the workstations.If that rumour is true, it'll be extremely low performance. More video output checkbox then actually capable of running anything. Think below Vega3-level, maybe 2CUs (i.e. a single workgroup) worth of RDNA2.
I'm just a bit annoyed, because the built in video means that there hasn't been much improvent at all in the past few years in low end video cards like there used to be.I'd be 100% OK with that. As long as the integrated graphics can run a desktop and play a youtube video, that's enough for me and for lots of people. It would be great to not have to buy crap used GT 710's just to boot and upgrade the workstations.
