with this kind of demand for their old shitter AMD will never release Vega.
Who knows, I personally still find mining a waste of time and electricity for little gains.
If this is true there might be some good news for all those wanting AMD RX series cards...
Not so good news for those wanting NVidia cards
That will probably not be an issue with the 8gb cards.
Here's Asus mining cards. These can't come soon enough.
That's good info to know cheers
From my understanding, most mining cards might not be sold in Australia... will have to hold out and see
It's definitely a possibility though, and it would hopefully alleviate the current issue with stock shortages everywhere
Well the prices at the moment are pretty crazy. From looking at PCCG these are the prices.
RX 580 $600
GTX 1060 $500
GTX 1070 $700-$800
GTX 1080 $800-$950
The price bump for the 580, 1060 and 1070 surprised me the most.
1060s are under $530 for a decent 6GB
Yeah I messed up lol
They also have the new 1060's which have the 9Gbps memory. Still $500 for a 1060 seems a lot.
I recommend just waiting for the mining craze to die off, with some issues like the recent price crash in ethereum, it may not be much longer
A few months, a flood of cheap cards, just like before
i want those cheap 1080tis!!!!
i need to look into this im yet to watch a review on the performance diff vs a 580.
Newegg have some 6GB 1060s at more reasonable prices. Around AUD $370 shipped.
Evga gtx 1080ti sc2 gaming 1003$ aud delivered from newegg
Yeah, but maybe it will be a bit of gamble as some of the miners are overclocking these things to the brink and then running them at 100%, 24/7, max temps for months. I've already heard a few stories of people frying vrm's or memory chips from mining on overclocked hardware.
ah well at least they are run in
It's a bad time to buy cards because everyone thinks they are going to get rich in ethereum and they might too if they have access to free power and enough money to buy 50 cards right now. But good news is they have to sell those cards eventually once the coin get's harder to mine and then you can all party with near thrown away cards. Most the miners seem to be underclocking cards to save power actually btw, it works out more profitable. Well unless you live in India and power is dirt cheap.
Not true. Mining is about Efficency.
Most cards never tip over 65 degrees.
