    This is most likely bad news for the gamers. Nvidia and AMD will have good times in front. Same for the retailers.

    The Bitcoin exchange rate has quadrupled since March 2019
    The crypto market is booming after Paypal registered last week. The price has more than quadrupled since the bottom list in February 2019

    Just little signposts on the way to "digital transformation" and the Brave New World of the future.

    NVIDIA announces revised pricing for the RTX 3000 FE series in India notebookcheck.net

    Consumers in this country often encounter relatively high prices for devices, thanks to the increased rate of general sales tax (GST) imposed some time ago. However, the RTX 3000 series' release may have been too much to tolerate in this vein for some. On its regional unveiling, the 3070 FE was priced at INR 51,000 - or about US$684: much higher than the original $499 price, even without the extra tariff (18% at present).

    Similarly, the RTX 3080 FE was INR 71,000 (~US$953, compared to its $699 American price), whereas the flagship 3090 FE was a whopping INR 152,000 (~US$2040, as opposed to $1499). However, NVIDIA has since amended this scheme, bringing the 3070, 3080 and 3090 FEs down to INR 44500, 62000 and 133500 respectively. These prices translate to their USD equivalents plus the GST.

    This may be more acceptable to aspiring RTX 3000-based rig-builders in this country. Then again, neither of the 3 cards appears to be available to buy from NVIDIA India's website at present. In addition, any effect on customized cards from individial OEMs remains to be seen.

    It make no sense if Nvidia will push out 12GB vRam for one of their weakest card when they officiall crippled 3070/3080 with less. A way to justify higher than necessary price point? Why not instead compete with AMD on price? Their 10GB scam called flagship was a huge misstep. The price you'll have to pay for "their greed" the next years.

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 rumored with up to 12GB memory to launch in January videocrdz.com

    It would appear that NVIDIA is planning to answer next-gen Radeon graphics cards increasing memory capacities. The manufacturer has recently provided a new roadmap with upcoming products to its board partners, going as far as January.

    NVIDIA developing similar technology to AMD Smart Access Memory for Ampere GPUs videocardz.de

    NVIDIA states that the technology is actually part of the PCI Express specifications, and therefore could be enabled on Ampere GPU for both AMD and Intel processors. Thus, ironically, NVIDIA’s solution could work with both AMD and Intel CPUs while AMD will be hardware limited, a tweet from GamersNexus indicates:

    Undervolted AMD RX 6800 with 183 W TGP offers clues about an upcoming RX 6800M laptop-grade GPU matching the desktop RTX 2080 Ti

    From the link....
    We know that Nvidia is already planning to release mobile versions for the RTX 3000 series, but we are not really sure if Team Green can "provide decent performance gains" over the 2080-series given the limitations imposed by the 8 nm fabrication process from Samsung. AMD could have a big advantage here, but it also needs to be mindful of the pricing schemes.

    Nvidia RTX 30 Series To Be in Short Supply Into 2021 tomshardware.com | today

    Nvidia is overwhelmed with demand for GeForce RTX 30 graphics cards.

    "While we had anticipated strong demand, it exceeded even our bullish expectations," said Colette Kress, Chief Financial Officer at Nvidia, during the company's earnings call with analysts and investors. "Given industry-wide capacity constraints and long cycle times, it may take a few more months for product availability to catch up with demand."

    Can't buy a new Ampere GPU? That's because NVIDIA sold them to miners tweaktown.com | Thu, Nov 26 2020 7:30

    Yeah it's going to be months before you can buy a new GeForce RT X30 series cards -- and that's directly from NVIDIA. But now, we're hearing why there's so little cards -- $175,000,000 worth of them were reportedly sold to crypto miners.

    In a new report from Barrons, it appears that NVIDIA made around $175 million selling Ampere GPUs to crypto miners. Ethereum changes are coming, so miners will not be able to use older GPUs so many of them are upgrading right now -- and picking up whatever Ampere GPUs they can in the process.
    "For the quarter in review, NVIDIA sold at least $175 million worth of new generation GPUs to ethereum miners, helping the outperformance. The analyst had guided sales to miners to come in at $150 million for the quarter".

    That's weird I thought mining moved to FPGAs a while back.

    That's interesting, but how do cryptominers jump the queue of regular consumers? I didn't realise they were somehow a seperate priority business? Or they're not a seperate priority business? (You'd have to "register" with NVidia directly as a cryptominer then?!)
