Jesus, what happened to the GPU market?Why is the GTX 1060 back at MSRP?
Because a 1060 still gives you $240 worth of performance in 2021.It's not like games have gotten harder to run if you exclude outliers purposefully designed to run like shit like FS2020 and CP2077.
>>79687024no, this is all of themthe fucking 2060 is $450 when you could get it from under 300 a few months back.
>>79687033People are sitting at home collecting covidbux and bored out of their minds, they bought all of this and last gen's gpus and now they're buying up 3 generations old cards.You just have to deal with the fact that GPUs are now luxury goods and are priced as such.My shit-tier 1650 non-super is now worth twice as much as what I paid for it.
>>79687058>>79687024nevermind, found out the real answer: https://www.tomshardware.com/news/gpu-tariff-asus-priceincreasei'm all in favor for anything that screws over China, but damn.
>>79687128How would this screw over china?Americans are paying increased taxes for buying shit from china.
>>79687160yeah but taxes get to the government which in turns trickles down to the citizens
>>79687252uhhhhhh are you ok?
>>79687252>trickles down to the citizensNot in the US.
>>79687009Bought an MSI GTX 1080 Ti 3 years ago for $850. Going for $850-$1200 on Amazon right now.I can only conclude that Nvidia are Jewing it up
>>79687160I'm praying it'll incentivize local production and de-centivize buying chinese products.
>>79687356Never going to happen look at the shitshow in Wisconsin. The amount of infrastructure needed is staggering and tec companies aren't going to invest into it.
>>79687009Pascal cards are popular for ETH mining.
>>79687469sigh, i know.
>>79687009so i have a broken r9 390 and i have an ultrawide 1440p monitor. what am i looking at price wise to replace this thing this year? id like an upgrade but will settle for a sidegrade if thats the only option. i havent been following the gpu market for a while, since...you know
>>79687519Give up and buy one of the new laptops. Yes the situation is that fucking bad.
>>79687356at foxconn wisconsin, their biggest problem was that they promised hiring locally, but then it turned out nobody in the state of wisconsin is actually qualified to work at their factories because american baseline education is so abysmal.It'll be the same story when TSMC opens up in arizona this year.
>>79687593should've gone the extra mile and offered certification training.
>>79687579wow....i have to spend twice as much for a slight upgrade....holy shit
>>79687611You misunderstood me, americans don't have the prequisite knowledge for even on the job training.I guess that's what happens when higher education isn't a given.
>>79687160You've been listening to the retards in the media too much. Of course tariffs are paid by the supplier. Ask yourself: Why didn't the supplier raise prices above where they're currently at? Because the supplier figures that any increase in price will cost sales. Tariffs mean either the supplier gives up those sales, or the supplier cuts into their profits to keep them, or some combination.
Anyone want to buy my old GTX 580?
>>79687656Are you fucking stupid?Americans are willing to pay ANY price for GPUs, they can't even keep them in stock despite DOUBLING in price over the last 6 months, they won't care if slimy AIBs start passing off the cost of tariffs to the end customer.
>>79687665I'll drop it in electronics recycling for you if you pay me $20
>>79687009Because the PS5 is on-par with a GTX 1060
>>79687709>electronics recyclingYou mean the garbage can?
>>79687593Machines do almost everything though. In fact, that's the reason they're in China ("Taiwan/Honk Honk") in the first place - they don't need skilled human labour, they need the cheapest possible. They need the uneducated farmer's son that thinks $1.50 an hour is a good salary.
>>79687593TSMC AZ will actually work because fabs require few people and AZ has the talent pool there (intel has a massive fab there)
>>79687252>trickles downTo who? Israel?
>>79689403it aint no trickle
>tfw got a "broken" 980ti for 100$ that crashed at heavy loadsWorks perfectly fine after a repaste with arctic mx-2, most based purchase i've ever made
>>79687160creates an oportunity for manufacturers with higer production costs to compete
