    What exactly is the deal with GPUs

    What exactly is the deal with GPUs

    Current card demand and scalping price might increase as miners scramble to get the last stock of full hash capable GPU's, but that should be a pretty short term issue I think. Pre-neutered GPU's are always going to fetch a premium now. Will be interesting to see how the market changes when...

    GPU Bestbuy drop happening now

    They seemed to spread them out for almost an hour. Kept clicking and missing. I started yelling and grumbling from my office and my wife asks from the couch 'what are you trying to get?' I said anything! So she looks on her phone and scores a Founders Edition 3070 first try. Good wifey, better...

    Did GPU bubbles of before "pop" in some way?

    Yes. There will be a surplus of sellers and it will become a buyers market. New retail cards will come down below msrp, further driving the secondary market lower. When that will happen is anybody's guess.

    Where is this urgency for new GPUs coming from?
