Antminer has recently announced their most powerful Ethereum miner yet the E9 with performance of 3 GH/s as the price of Ethereum reaches all-time highs. The Chinese manufacturer advertises that this is equivalent to 32 NVIDIA RTX 3080 cards while coming in with significantly less power consumption and likely a lower p

why would miners choose these when they can get the ones that they can later sell to anyone?

"This could be the end of shortages!"

... later in the text: "this won't affect shortages"... nice.

Ethereum is moving to Proof of Stake, anyway, so buying these is kind of iffy. There are sadly other cryptos you can still mine with GPU's, though, which would normally be fine but right now the chip shortages are a pain in the ass.

yea, hate miners because crypto brings more money with one card than most daily jobs do in their respective countries. Maybe crypto haters should try living off of ~$300 a month and rethink their position. I've notices that only crypto haters are people that are handed money, or that work menial jobs in the west and are payed 10x more for the same work done in, say, my country here, or over 20x more than China labor is payed.

PS. Don't worry about ETH 2.0 PoS, it "happened" back in 2019, then 2020, than January 2021...

the only thing which will put an end to the GPU shortage is when bitcoin finally dips, which doesn't seem to going to happen anytime soon

Either way, anything that happens in China stays in China.
