Bitcoin mining leads to an unexpected GPU gold rush
Bitcoin and other crypto currency miners have created a dearth of mid-range and high-end GPU cards that are selling for twice as much as suggested retail. The reason: miners are setting up server farms with the cards.
isn't this old news?
old news. but whenever I hear how much are the prices for c GPU card, I am surprising ... someone will profit from digging, but most will be profitable for GPU retailers
You can't beat human greed! Intially I loved crypto and bought lots of BTC,, but now I'm starting to see all the damage its doing
I'm surprised gpu's can still be used for mining profitably. Also, that the card makers haven't scaled up their production. It sucks for gamers and anyone building a general purpose pc and that market is already in like the fifth year of decline.
impossible to get a 1080 ti for a good price anymore :@
This is pretty old news I think
gpus are not financial anymore.  if non asic-resistant, you need asic farm.  gpus just dont pull enough blocks.  for asic-resistant, ok, gpu useful, but always best to mine on other peoples computers lol
damn bitcoiners fucking up oour gpu. how t fuck am i supposed to build my rig now
like goddamn, my friend bought a 1070 like last summer for 300ish and now they are like 700-800 here in Finland, got  a goddamn heart attack when i checked the prices today
