How Nvidia is tackling cryptomining so more gamers can get RTX cards


Recommended Posts

Quote

It's no secret that it's almost impossible to find an RTX 3000-series graphics card right now. An army of bots is scouring the internet retailers buying up a lot of the available stock while desperate gamers fight over what's left behind or trying their luck with systems like Newegg Shuffle.

 

While profiteers online are a much bigger problem than cryptominers - and there is obviously overlap between profiteers reselling cards to miners, so the boundary between the two is pretty hazy - it's still enough to have caught the attention of Nvidia.

And meanwhile,the average person has gotten creative to fight back at the scalpers.... 

Note that 44 "people" have actually bid on this picture of a video card and the price is now $280.00 with a couple of days to go. ?

Ha, I should have saved it. Myself and @Sgt_Swanny saw an eBay listing for a 2080Ti I think it was, it was like a some sort of felt tip/water colour drawing of the card...sold for £6..Not a bad return for a piece of A4 paper with a 5 min drawing.
