In case you don’t know, as a protection measure for PC Gamers, NVIDIA decided to launch a range of graphics cards focused on mining. We are talking about the Crypto Mining Processors (CMP), graphics cards without any image output, and apparently, with a warranty of only 3 months.
Mining plates are weak and expensive, but they are a success
Therefore, right at the time of the announcement, that users criticized NVIDIA’s strategy, due to the fact that these mining cards have no resale potential as they only have one function … which is to mine. Not to mention its price and relatively low performance compared to the recent RTX 30.
However, it seems that even with all the negative points already mentioned, these cards are selling by chance!
After all, NVIDIA has sold about $ 150 million worth of CMP cards. A novelty that comes directly from the company’s most recent report, and which represents an increase of 50 million compared to previous data.
NVIDIA confirms… There aren’t even graphics cards!
Getting a graphics card these days is almost an impossible mission, after all, in addition to being rare, all models are well above their recommended market price! The RTX 3080 is very close to 3000 €, while the RTX 3060, which is supposed to cost 330 €, is close to 800 €.
It’s crazy! In fact, even old graphics cards like the RX 580 are now close to 450 €. Well, as I have been saying, the chip production crisis is going to get worse before it starts to get better … Even NVIDIA itself confirmed it.
It’s official, 2021 is the worst year ever for the PC world.
