gamers, the flagship
mainstream models in Intel's
Core i7 and AMD's Ryzen 7 product families offer the best value.
Intel's Coffee and Kaby Lake models offer the best absolute gaming

NVIDIA Wants Retailers to Sell GeForce GPUs to Gamers, Not Miners

Yeah, well, weapon manufacturers don't want to sell guns to terrorists, either.
But that's where the money is it seems as these coin miners power the dark web.
Make no mistake, whatever Nvidia's public message is, it's obvious why they had a great year; these coin miners made a huge income for Nvidia.
Too bad because the dark web is mostly about illegal stuff. I imagine NVidia would do well to donate most of its income to rehabilitate drug addicts, their families and other victims of related crime...
Sure, NVidia can't choose who their buyers are. However, if they really wanted to, they could limit cards per customer to 3 (much like Newegg does that without asking). That 3 covers even the most demanding gamers and it would require miners to forge/steal a lot of identities - enough to be suspicious and worth investigating.
Either way, NVidia never really cared about the gamers - if they did, all gamers would be running a decent card.
Not sure how many of you know, but is NVidia explicitly limiting the factory-overclocks on custom cards (and that's the reason why all Asus, Gigabyte, Zotax, etc. cards are clocked to the same speeds). With that, that NVidia kills the real competition - and I think this fact demonstrates very well that NVidia is not trying to make gamers happy at all...

Not like Microsoft would care about those requests, anyway...

NVIDIA Wants Retailers to Sell GeForce GPUs to Gamers, Not Miners

yeh gpu prices are just insane because of mining... and worse people who doing it just to make back the money they had to pay extra to buy a modern gpu.. thus just bringing more people into the stupid alt shitcoin mining craze.... the whole thing can't collapse soon enough

obviously isn't anything nvidia/amd can do.. short of oh releasing gpu's that are even faster and push down the price of existing high end models down to better consumer friendly levels.. but fuk doubt they do that when they and retailers can milk this out longer.

right now console systems are looking good for the money and graphics quality.. shame they can't be modded to be a gpu for pc system... or better yet be more effective as gpu shit coin mining.. and move all those mining monkeys onto buying consoles instead of pc gaming gpu hardware.

I don't think I've seen AMD complaining about mining...After all, if AMD is good for gamers and industry because it's a competitor to nVidia and intel, then mining is good for industry and gamers because it funds AMD big time. How many less polaris GPUs would AMD have sold if it were not for mining?
