Now that Ryzen with Vega Graphics (R) has dropped, notice that the G4560 now seems... plentiful?

Was it ever low on stock? The only thing I've noticed is that once upon a time that range was only ~£50 when it went up in price to ~£80, then it went back down again.

with the current VGA and DDR4 prices I would expect the appeal of cheap DIY PCs, outside of the mining crowd to be very low right now,
I think I saw G4560s in stock for a low price before the 2200G was released, I don't think it's related.

Yeah, for a while it was basically unavailable from first-party sellers like Newegg and Amazon. Only third-party sellers, on ebay, for like $100 and up.

Maybe the slow boat from China finally arrived with the shipment?

In the real world most likely the budget gamers decided that it was really a bad choice in this day and age to neuter themselves at the core level.

On the miner theory....I guess we'll be seeing GPUs at retail pricing next week....Don't hold your breath.

Well, CFL Pentium is just around the corner (I suspect it will come along with H-series motherboard) so it's just stock clearing movement at this point for SKL Pentium.
I assume the delay has been due to Intel wanting to clear old stock first. Otherwise it seems like a heck of a screw-up.

Of course not because 1 CPU can power like 8 or more GPUs and each GPU easily has double the die size.

Well, maybe for mining, but for F@H, it takes a minimum of one core per GPU.

F@H isn't a pure cryptomining because I believe the main purpose of Folding and other DC projects are for science advancement by non-profit contributors. Even though recently we had Curecoin and Gridcoin, but still, it's volunteering work at its core.
That's also why, imo, they have different way in using computer resources.
