Not sure if you quoted the right message or the right part or just re-affirming exactly what is writing in it ?"For now, retailers’ more immediate concerns appear to be the stockpiles of RTX 3000 cards that they are growing “desperate to move”, as worries mount that they won’t be able to sell the graphics cards for a profit."
The sad truth is that retailers want to wait for the used cards to sell before their inventory is released. If they're going to not make a profit then someone somewhere needs to lose a yacht.
It is not all that it take, but it seem trivially obvious that the more AIBs sell Nvidia only, more AIBs spend more on the marketing/devs side of Nvidia than on AMD side and so on the better.If all it takes for AMD to grow in market share is to get Nvidia only AIB's to sell their cards then AMD would have had 50% market share long ago. Fact is too many people buy Nvidia and Nvidia only. That works against AIB partners.
I am not sure you are saying here, AIB relationship don't matter has long has it not terrible enough to ruin NVIDIA image in the industry and hurt their relationship with AIB.. yes you are just repeating the same thing but by stating that it is false, while saying that it does matter the very next sentence.AIB relationships don't matter. As long as it doesn't ruin Nvidia's image
That seem an empty statement, yes Nvidia could make and sell a marginal amount of FE 4090 and those cards are still physically made by their partners which make that distinction very small is there is one here.Like I said, Nvidia could sell Founders Edition RTX 4090's all day long and still sell out because their mind share is that big.
Nvidia does not make card and starting to make cardsWhat that means is that Nvidia could let AIB lose money or eat the cost and still be begging for more, cause the reality is Nvidia can make chips and sell cards while AIB's can't.
1) I am not sure is particularly simple
2) I am not sure they would not significantly worst at it than companies that are specializing at doing only that
3) Nvidia would put a lot of money and energy in what I imagine is a really low margin endeavours, margin that is correct for very low risk company but not necessarily for Nvidia.
Nvidia could release the 4060-4070 this year just after the 4090 and just say eat it to AIBs and reseller and so on yes, but I bet you that they wont has for one their incentive are not totally unaligned there.
