The thing I want to know is how so many miners got hold of so many. I have been looking since day 01 and I have never even seen the "add to basket" option at any UK retailer for a 3080. I think I saw a 3070 twice in January. Its a shame but I know three people with a 30 series and they all finally gave in to buying them on eBay. 

Just how many of these things went out the back door of the factory. Didn't one guy in China have something like 50+ of these hooked up???

 

Its not shutting the door after the horse has bolted but when its out of sight and the dust has settled!!!

Bots scouring online retailers and instantly purchasing any that are listed. And it's not necessarily the miners that are grabbing them first, a lot of the bots are run by scalpers.

I just want to make sure I have not given the wrong impression. I don't have a problem with miners buying graphic cards.

I'm no fan of scalpers using bots that's for sure.

My point is there are miners out there with a lot of either nvidia 30 series or AMD 6000 series graphic cards. They could not have bought them from all from scalpers or retailers. A popular manufacturer was caught scalping their own products. My issue is the manufacturers advertising something as available for sale but for some reason it doesn't make it to the retailer.

I also wonder how retailers are coping. They have nothing to actually sell so they can make a profit.

I have no idea why we should care about this...

  You don't have to... unless you've been trying to buy a GPU at some point in the last 2-3 years since all this bs started and are facing a combination of massive supply shortages, shitty business practices, and greedy, scum sucking scalpers. Then it becomes something you're likely to have a greater interest in.

Hope the Crypto mining market takes a massive nose dive and  all the miners dump all their cards on the market, lets see what happens to all the inflated shop prices then.

Its a bad show all round really. Both Nvidia and AMD advertised a MRSP at launch. Then when they actually are available that price is a distant memory. A mate of mine his GTX 1080 properly failed with no come back or repair possible. He bought a 3070 off eBay last week for over £800. 

Even when I found an AMD MSI 6800xt the price was high but worth it considering what my 2080ti was now worth. When it arrived it had a corrupted vBios and I had to send it back for a refund. I'm glad I did some upgrades in August last year so I can sit tight and wait until this crazyness ends.

I built my new system last year March so next month it will be a year old.

 

I put a GTX 2070 in while waiting for the release for the 3000 series....and i'm still waiting!!!! what a complete farce .

 

I'm prepared to wait it out until prices become more "manageable" but I refuse to be fleeced by greedy vendors.

Nvidia was selling 3000 series cards directly to miners.

A guess, or proved?

Ask this guy (this isn’t the first time he’s alerted the media):

https://www.lowyat.net/2021/231315/crypto-miner-installs-mining-rig-inside-boot-of-bmw-i8-just-to-annoy-gamers/

 

I so hope crypto tanks again, spectacularly.

 

 

  That's... actually pretty cool, especially the turbofan looking thing. I mean, there was some thought put into that one =D I question the wisdom of putting something like in view under the glass, though. Good way to get your car keyed or broke into. I mean, ffs, an unattended walmart bag or Amazon box will usually get the job done, let alone something like that.

 

  I actually don't mind mining persay, the irritating bit is the greed of ''money for nothing'' and the large scale selfishness and inconsideration shown by the people and corps involved.
