    Crypto Miners, Not Gamers, Were The Primary Buyers of Graphics Cards Since 2021, Almost $15 Billion Worth of GPU Sales Reported

    As mentioned his ORIGINAL claim to fame was being the guy who talked about tech for NCIX, never watched myself, but the guy basically parlayed that experience to do it himself. Then like other youtube channels, like Hardware Unboxed, he got more and views which allowed "the algorithm" to put...

    [H] Stock Alerts, Tips & Tears for AMD, Nvidia, Intel, PS5, XBOX

    Almost 4pm PDT here and it looks like the 3070 FE is still available, not exactly sure since need to "get in line" but hey it's better than seeing a grey "sold out" button... although yeah could be unavailable in 250miles.

    Riot Games to start recording Valorant voice chats starting July 13

    Was it all done "anonymously" too without any fear of repercussions if you went too far or if someone wanted to shut you up? That said, lots of things were done back then that are worse than what we expect today, bullying, hazing, giving sexual consent, "boys being boys", etc, doesn't mean...

    Riot Games to start recording Valorant voice chats starting July 13

    But when I watch Youtube videos I'm not in any way sending the information in the first place, so yeah you're right I would be upset if they all of a sudden had video or audio of me. When you play games, you're sending your "information" to them which then gets redirected to others. The...

    The 2022 Steam Summer sale is now live! runs from June 23 to July 7, 2022 10 AM PST

    It gets a little more complicated than that, as companies who make these games do not have an unlimited budget to draw from to produce games and very well may need those additional "pre-order funds" to finish the game at least the spit shine and polish aspect. I'm not talking about a company...

    The 2022 Steam Summer sale is now live! runs from June 23 to July 7, 2022 10 AM PST

    The other angle is some games simply don't go on sale because the developers feel that a game costs what it does and shouldn't be discounted just because of age. One example is a game Distant Worlds: Universe (real time 4x type space game), I think it was released in 2014(?) and never hit a...

    DEAD - ARRMA RC 1/8 Typhon 6S V5 4WD BLX Buggy $399.99 (Regularly $549.99)

    Just means it was a different vendor who was selling it for that price, once they were sold out next man up wasnt giving as much of a discount

    Crypto Miners, Not Gamers, Were The Primary Buyers of Graphics Cards Since 2021, Almost $15 Billion Worth of GPU Sales Reported

    Thanks, but if I'm buying used cards it's not going to be at the high end just to help mitigate the risk a bit. And yeah people still trying to get retail from used are fairly delusional.

    Crypto Miners, Not Gamers, Were The Primary Buyers of Graphics Cards Since 2021, Almost $15 Billion Worth of GPU Sales Reported

    I'd buy a GPU from a miner, but then again the value I put on it is a fraction of original MSRP, it seems that "used cards" are still selling for above MSRP levels which I personally don't feel like their worth and I'd say the fact I can easily snatch a used card up shows that as true.

    The Balls on Intel...

    So how much in tax savings did they get to write off because 1.2B was a "business expense" and brought their gross income down?

    [H] Stock Alerts, Tips & Tears for AMD, Nvidia, Intel, PS5, XBOX

    I'm sorry why should they have cancelled these other models? Because everyone should pay an extra premium on the "ultra" models? Out of morbid curiosity I checked the price of the one that was cancelled for me (3070 black, as it was barely over actual MSRP when I hopped in the queue), saw...

    [H] Stock Alerts, Tips & Tears for AMD, Nvidia, Intel, PS5, XBOX

    Yeah I got the one for the 08G-P5-3751-KR (3070 version), completely forgot I was in the queue for that I want to say for well over a year... but hey EVGA was happily sending products to it's big name retailers.

    Hot (with some footwork): Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra

    Really dislike Samsungs site as they advertise the pricing as if you have the highest tier item to trade in, dont have it? Then the price jumps back up leaving you with a WTF feeling

    GPU prices — is the worst behind us ?

    What's your definition of progress? Having your equipment becoming less valuable over time? I mean how many have cursed/moaned/etc when they bought a piece of computer equipment (or anything for that matter) and a month later it drops in price? It's a neat little window into the...
