Guess he really is a genius...
Edit: EVGA and Jay (allegedly) scammed you! (full of f-bombs)
Edit: Jay revisits - the "final word" (and apology) from the man himself.
Wasn't there some laws passed, that made interfering / blocking US ports, essentially a terrorist offense? I seem to recall that being passed, maybe during the Clinton presidency.Having worked in/around the Oakland port, those independent truck drivers are only going to hurt themselves. The port can always contract with outside trucking firms to do the haulage...if the indies try to block the roads, they'll get arrested and their trucks impounded.
That is some wild speculation by 2cents there. In the spirit of wild speculation:"I've been told by numerous sources whom I cannot name because they will literally lose their jobs, that the 4000 series may be up to a year away from launch" ... @4m.
I thought general consensus for AMD launch is early 2023 anyway. So it would just make sense for NV to wait if they can.Several "sources" have stated that nVidia wants to delay the 4K series because the number of cheap cards hitting the market is just going to grow in the coming months. So its a bad time to launch.
I would be surprised in nVidia or AMD launch new cards this year. Though, I have been surprised before.
The current street price of nVidia cards does not follow along with this theory. If they truly had a bunch of cards that they could not sell at over MSRP (nVidia cards are mostly not being listed at MSRP), then they would put them on sale to move them. We aren't seeing this, though they are finally coming down in price compared to a few weeks ago.AMD is not exposed on the used market like nvidia is.
Nvidia AIBs apparently have excess stock they have been unable to sell. AMD AIBs apparently do not.
AMD has no reason to delay.
Which is exactly why I'm not looking too seriously at the used cards that pop up on the market. Seems like too many people over-paid for their cards during the mining boom...and now are trying to recoup some of those prices...even though the market is dropping. I see far too many "potentially mined cards" on the local-ish Craigslist or FB Marketplace that CLAIM to not have been ised for mining...and are carrying prices very close to the MSRP for those same cards.I believe that too. Most of the deals during "The Flood", are going to be used mining cards, not new stock.
GPUs are like gas: prices shoot up like a rocket, fall like a feather.Prices on current inventory are dropping at a snails pace. If there is some hidden glut of inventory out there, AIBs/Retailers/Nvidia have done a solid job of blunting the supply.
A theory I don't often see discussed is an NV buy-back from the AIBs. Keep high volume 3xxx cards in reserve to re-release if/when there is a serious 4xxx series shortage to move them for a minimal loss (akin to the "rereleased" 2060 and 1630 we're seeing now).
I believe NV has done something similar previously simply to maintain the margins on its existing and soon to be released products. Doubt we'll ever see the kind of price crash we saw with AMD back after the original mining boom.
We pretty much need gas. I don't quite think it's the same, although some here might certainly disagree.GPUs are like gas: prices shoot up like a rocket, fall like a feather.
He is clearly referring to the Ethereum networks transaction fee, also known as the gas fee.English, ha. Gas, gas, gas, what does it mean.
Ampere launch: Jensen takes the GPU out of the oven.Nvidia should release these things into the European market and promote their ability to heat your home for the coming winter if they really want them to fly off shelves.
Sorry ATPN is leaking.
