AMD RX Vega’s pricing was “not just for launch, but ongoing”AMD RX Vega’s pricing was “not just for launch, but ongoing”

More stock isn't the answer to get prices down and get GPU's in the hands of consumers. If more stock floods the market to bring prices down, miners will simply buy more GPU's, and manufacturers and normal consumers will still lose. There needs to be some kind of regulation or standard required for mining cards to keep them separated from consumer use. Until there's a separate card for miners versus consumers, the stock problem (and subsequently the price problem) will continue.Reply

Separate dedicated mining cards already exists (not for Vega though) but that doesn't change a thing. And there's no way to regulate it.


A large stock of the same GPU can be needed for all kinds of things, not only for mining.


For example, a lot of GPU's could be needed for rendering. Or for an internet café, or a place for kids and young adults to spend time at after school and evenings. Or all kinds of other things.


Sure, only making it possible for a company to buy larger stock could go a bit of the way, but seeing it's probably easy to just create a company (at least in Sweden, and doesn't cost a lot more than just above a hundred pounds), that's not a proper solution either.


The only real solution is to produce enough GPU's that the market (both mining and gaming) needs.

IMHO, the last game(s) Ubisoft did right was the Farcry series. Unfortunately rumor is they are about to redirect focus of that series to be solely multiplayer as well. I just don't trust Ubisoft anymore. They always seem to have great ideas, but they just can't execute well because they cut corners and don't cater to the fans. It's gonna ruin them one day. I haven't seen a game from them in years that was worth spending full price on from day one.
