Nvidia Sold $175 Million Worth of GeForce RTX 30 GPUs To Crypto Miners

3 hours ago, LAwLz said:

Holy crap I just saw that one of the sources is Moores law is dead.

Thst guy is a fucking liar and AMD fanboy who just makes shit up. How anyone can take him seriously is beyond me. His "insider sources" have about as much accuracy as my completely imaginary sources.

Well Linus did just discuss this on the WAN show. "Nvidia reportedly sold GPUs to miners.."

says who?

 

Miners are customers too. Why are "gamers" more entitled to new GPUs than anyone else?

Could you please explain to us why these cards are very clearly labelled as gaming cards on Nvidia's website if they are going to suddenly give them away to miners for cash?

Please either answer this question or just don't post anymore, I don't think fanboys or sheep are popular on these forums. Try to think for yourself instead of "lolz tis b buzinezz guizz nvidia maekz moni LOL". What about the current situation and the fact that people sit at home and that a ton of people either need this to distract fromselves from slitting their wirst considering mental health has been on the rise due to the pandemic and lokdown? What about the fact that people need this for work and cannot get any? What about kiddos that have nothing else in their life than game while they sit around at home? But hey, people that want to take advantage of this idiotic currency to make money and enrich themselves sure are customers too. <removed by staff>

Gamers needs marketing, miners do not

Just because a product is labelled as "gaming" doesn't mean the company is only allowed to sell it to gamers exclusively, unless you can point out which law or regulations is against this. Please do not reply until you can answer this.

Things I need help with: (nothing at the moment) ❤️

Spoiler

none atm

 

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Spoiler

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

Nvidia did not become big because of miners. Miners are pretty new whereas gamers have always supported Nvidia. If you don't see anything wrong with them giving priority to people who use the product for nothing else but to make money then I am definitely not going to bother replying to you further, no worries.

If they are customers then they could have simply ordered them on their website like everyone else instead of getting special treatment. Funny how the two people are see nothing wrong with this are the guys with anime pics who probably sit in their basement with their mining rigs.<removed by staff>

I prefer companies that do not straight out lie to me. Gaming is what made companies like Nvidia big and created brand loyalty. Any miner will drop Nvidia the very instant either mining is dead or there is some other way to mine 0.2% faster.

 

Also I am still interested in whether you calculated the electricity cost into your claim of mining paying for your PC upgrade.

Again, why can't Nvidia diversify their business? You think business will grow just by doing the same thing forever?

BS! That is not vague at all. ASAP includes "not selling a huge chunk of a scarsely available product to non-gamers". Nothing vague at all about that, no room for interpretations.

And where you live, is that one of the few places where electricity is so cheap that it would pay off? Did you do the math, checking how much electricity-$ where sucked out of the line for mining and how much you earned through the mined coins? I highly doubt that you even got a net plus, and even less earned remotely enough for a PC upgrade.

That's your interpretation of it

 

My interpretation

"I could sell these cards to gamers, or sell it to moonzy as a paperweight first because I want to, it's not possible to sell to gamers if I'm unwilling to do it anyways"

So, where's my card, Nvidia?

If I tell you there is very little tomato supply coming in right now and I will do my best to give each inhabitant of the village 1kg each, then sell 2tons the next day to some other distributor because he offered me a better price - would you argue I ensured fast as possible tomato supply for the villagers?

A summation of how I am seeing this thread:
 

The consensus seems to be that people find crypto mining a disgusting practice in general regardless.
 

 If one wants to make the argument that video games is also disgusting, it is still vastly more disgusting than playing computer games at any rate. 
 

 The OP statement claims that large amounts of Nvidia GPUs were sold to people doing this.  This has been challenged on several fronts for various reasons. 

Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.

profit or morale? and i don't really see companies keeping morale in check, most of them thread on the grey area whenever possible

By getting crypto currency...?

And selling those currencies into fiat currency, if you so desire

 

Gets you money?

 

So... What's your point? I could sell my btc and obtain myself a few GPU right now if I so wish

How is that different from using fiat currency to buy GPU?

 

Yes, like running games to entertain oneself.

Using a single gpu for your enjoyment vs running a rig with multiple gpus to mine with are two entirely different things. I can understand wasting energy to entertain one self like you would with a gaming rig or simply watching TV but I can't understand using up vast amounts of energy to mine an imaginary currency that holds no value other than what people assign to it. It just seems like a huge waste when if you are going to use your gpu for compute like that you might as well use it for something useful like folding at home.

in that case, nvidia should've build fabs and fabricate more chips, because that would be "best" for supplying more chips

and let those fabs rot when demand dies down after the initial wave, yeap.

 

profit is king in a business, anything that goes against it is "not possible" in the eyes of executives.

you may think companies have customer's best interest in mind, but that's just because that's what they want you to think

that's why we have regulations and laws to keep them in check.

but the fact is that it holds value, and can be traded for goods and services like any other form of currency

like coupons, if you will

they dont have any value, other than what some company assigns it to have.

It is okay to wait a few weeks or even lets say 2-3 months. But as the situation presents itself now, we are facing 4-6 months before general availability and prices anywhere near MSRP. A time period where usually successor or refreshs are already available.

Yeah waiting for availability is the problem, sure you could get into a queue or pre-order but with the rumors of Nvidia having 30 series cards with more VRAM, I really don't see the point.

That Q&A is mostly a load of BS anyway, if they're selling GPU dies to miners, or maybe that  Q&A is aimed at the miners.

And I'm sure Nvidia knows a lot of people kept their Pascal cards because the Turing cards weren't worth upgrading to unless you absolutely needed raytracing, so of course theres higher demand.

But looking at it from a non-emotional standpoint, "gamers" aren't entitled to new GPUs. Customers are entitled to new GPUs, and Customers can encompass Gamers, Miners, Render Farms, Creators, AI researchers etc etc.

People defending mining and miners: condescending explanation of how capitalism works.

 

Yeah, we all get how capitalism works, thanks. The pc gaming enthusiasts who want/need a new gpu aren't "entitled," just frustrated and feeling that a large market chunk is subverting their hobby. We are talking about graphics processing units after all. 

 

It's like if Porsche were to release a limited edition car designed and marketed for its track performance except a few rich guys swooped in and bought half of them only to take the engines out to power something completely unrelated to motorsports. Meanwhile the rest of the car is left to sit.

Please either answer this question or just don't post anymore.  .

 

Just because something is labeled as "gamer" doesn't mean it's only allowed to be bought by gamers.

Guess people that don't run servers aren't allowed to by any server grade harware

Who are you to say who can buy what products?

 

Quote

I don't think fanboys or sheep are popular on these forums

good thing i'm not a fanboy then...

 

Quote

What about the current situation and the fact that people sit at home and that a ton of people either need this to distract fromselves from slitting their wirst considering mental health has been on the rise due to the pandemic and lokdown?

what a bullshit argument, "if people can't buy GPUs they are going to comit suicide" are you really sure you want to make that argument?

 

Quote

What about the fact that people need this for work and cannot get any?

I thought they were gaming cards?

 

Quote

What about kiddos that have nothing else in their life than game while they sit around at home?

there are other hobbies in life besides computer games. it's a GPU, it's not water or oxygen, people can live without them.

 

Quote

But hey, people that want to take advantage of this idiotic currency to make money and enrich themselves sure are customers too

Would you say the same thing to the reasearches who buy up a whole bunch of cards to do protein folding for medical research? GPUs have soo many other uses besides gaming, again, who are you to decide how they get used?

 

Quote

Either you are just not very bright or you are a miner yourself.

see me last post. i don't mine, infact i hate the concept of it, but it doesn't mean that the people that wish to involve themselves in it should be banned from buying a product because it might upset some people.

 

Quote

In some parts of the world there are ethics, I guess in yours not.

Why are your "ethics" any better than mine?

 

i advocate for a free and open market i would say thats more ethical than forcing a company to only sell to a certain group of people because the internet is annoyed.

 

 

EDIT: oh man, that "funny" react really shut down my argument, holy shit, i'm done i can't argue against that, what am i going to do? i guess i should delete my account with how brutal that response was. How will i ever be able to show my weeb anime portrait around this forum ever again. people will bow down to your godlike debating skills.

Miners are customers too. Why are "gamers" more entitled to new GPUs than anyone else?

THERE IS A SPECIFIC RANGE OF GPU'S ONLY MEANT  FOR MINING AND THOSE FOR SURE CAN'T BE USE IN GAMES, THEN WHY ARE MINERS EXPLOITING THE PRODUCTS THOSE ARE FOR GAMERS JUST BECAUSE THOSE COULD ALSO DO GOOD IN MINING AND THE POINT IS THAT MINERS ARE CUSTOMERS FOR MINING GPU'S AND DEFINETLY STEALERS IN GAMING GUP'S
