A $140 MSRP graphics card for $300 as a "black friday deal".

This market is a fucking joke.

It is barely even better than my gtx 960 2gb
it seems impossible for me to upgrade right now but there is no point anyway when the only cards available is shit like this

You better take it because it's never gonna get any better.
$450 is the hard minimum for entry level now, but it's not even a waste of money, gpus retain their value so you can sell it in a few years and upgrade it without losing your initial buyin cost.

Sure it will probably happen but I’ll put money on it that it will turn into a shitcoin overnight with no value and hence miners will cash out and sell their used and abused cards to desperate gamers for MSRP.

When are they gonna start making APUs with good performance again? Something like an RNDA 2 with 11 CUs.

Yes. I never had more and therefore don't need more. I am not even going to try 4k or above 60fps because it would make me CONSOOOOOM
>>
>>84468596
APUs are hard limited by your ram latency.
There's a reason dgpus use their own specially wired ram buses clocked to more than 10000MHz.
The gt1030 which is normally gddr5 got a secret ddr4 version and it cut performance by 70%.
>>
>>84468467
>scam tech fad that the SEC just started regulating is here to stay
shut up retard
>>
>>84468667
Nah, it's fine. APUs usually do reward those extra CUs. Memory is also a bottleneck but just as often, it's the CUs.

btw even just your normal desktop memory is much faster than the DDR4 version of the 1030.
>>
>>84468328
The price on those is arbitrary, they just had some and chucked them up for sale. A 7nm 1050ti would be like a handful of mm2. Shit I figured this all out when tsmc 7nm density came out and a 1080ti rehash(without wasting 49% of the die on RT and tensor) would be like 200ish mm2 I can't remember the exact figure. You know, the kind of card that's profitable to sell at $199.
More so than cryptofags the problem was shilling computers to consolefags who belong Infront of their TV. reddit and YouTube are mostly to blame. Zoomers and younger cannot look at some information and draw a conclusion they are confident in. They won't look at their keyboards pcb and say oh yeah I can desolder this or look at their computer and think damn that looks fucking easy to assemble. They need to be told that it's okay to do something like that by a source that they think is authoritative(determined by views I guess) and even then they'll go around asking the same question 500 times. It's not until something reaches a critical mass of acceptance that they will do it without the blessing of a YouTuber. Playing games on desktops and assembling them has reached that critical mass.
According to my son essentially every single boy in his school wants a ryzen and rtx. You can buy actual computer parts are best buy. They used to only sell what today is essentially a gt730, maybe a power supply.
It's over, you gotta pay money kids can't compete with but you only get products made for kids for that money. The 2080ti and 3090 were fucking pathetic. at least the 7900xt is about 3x as fast, 4090 ~2.4. these pieces of shit still can't do 4k 120.
>>
>>84468786
lmao, no, Best Buy has always sold computer components.

They'd never lower the price on some things, which meant you'd see a Geforce 6200 on the shelf for $100 right next to a 9600 for $150, but still, they've always sold modern components.
>>
>>84468517
What the fuck is wrong with you retard? Wh yare you lying out of your ass? The laptop 1650 is equally powerful as the desktop 1650. You are thinking of the 1650 max-q which is still faster than a desktop 1050. Imbecile
>>
>>84468865
Yes, they did. They sold Nvidia fx5200's which were about as fast a pentium 4 igpu and a handful of other garbage. some ram and psus. They didn't sell ati 3850s and 3870s. No motherboards or cpus. by 2011 they still basically only sold cards that were good for rendering a web browser and they had some shit like Corsair 120mm aios.
>>
>>84468389
Assuming supply ever catches in demand, we will see a return to prices close to MSRP

But higher cost of goods in general is here to stay; ever since Nixon eliminated the gold standard, inflation has gone up every decade, never down
>>
>>84468906
No they sold pretty much everything. You just didn't notice because they'd rarely restock. And they'd never put older models on sale so they'd rot on shelves for years, giving you the impression that the only thing they stocked was old stuff.

But if something new came out then they usually did stock it, and they'd stop restocking after only six months, emptying the shelves of that still current GPU or mobo.

No. Supply of many cards is okay now. I look through online retailers and see loads in stock. They're just at double the price they're supposed to be. Companies have had a taste now of what people are willing to pay, and they're not going to go back down to MSRP (or anywhere near it) unless sales literally stop entirely. I predict we'll see a drop of ~25% at most from current pricing, which will be hailed as a win for gaymers and tech "journalists" will tell you to buy NOW NOW NOW. Then the next generation wil come along with much higher MSRPs to stop people bitching about cards costing more than they're "supposed" to.

All jokes aside, why wouldn't someone go with an M1? You can run Windows/Linux in VM and while it's no /v/irgin machine, it'll get the job done for what it is. At least with M1 you're paying MSRP and getting a great value compared to paying $300 for a $140 card, not to mention everything else alongside it.

So searching for a good deal on a video card this year would be stupid right?

>>84471097
Depends on if you have all day to sit around and watch price alerts. I've gotten 23 cards this year for MSRP or very close to it, mostly from Amazon and mostly 3060 Tis and 3070s (plus four 3060s, one 3070 Ti and one 3080). But you need to order within seconds or they're gone.
>>
>>84471187
You're clearly too stupid for /g/ if you think the M1 is 'garbage', but if you think paying a markup to play video games is fine then your manchild brain is too fried to reason with already.

What do you need 23 graphics cards for?

>>84470597
I stole it, so it's free (as in free beer).
>>
>>84468389
Nope, inflation and increased overseas labor costs means everything imported will cost twice as much as it did 10 years ago to produce. People have this glimmer of hope that US fabs might solve this but they forget that bob and sally want $20/hour to assemble 100 laptops per day (assuming they'll be able to).

Mexicans are our best bet but they're probably too busy hiding from the cartels on a daily basis.

>>84468328
It's not a bad deal when you consider the card works for you when you're not making heavy use of it.

>>
Hopefully intel gpus solve the low end gpu cost
>>
I was annoyed by the GPU pricing, but it totally made sense when I started mining.

ROI on tons of cards hovers around just 6 months or so, and even after the ETH difficulty bomb things like Ergo, Ravencoin, etc will just absorb the hashrate, probably go up in value, and we'll just keep chugging. Gamers are pretty cucked, imagine making a big investment just to use it to consoom and buy more shit. Funny thing is, if most gamers mined in their fucking sleep and when they aren't using the machine, they'd profit enough to be able to easily buy a new card every year, even with these prices, but they're so diametrically opposed to miners that they will just spend that year shitting themselves screaming when they could easily just have their new shiny consoomer hardware basically for free by now, even with these prices. If you have a midrange 10-series card/480 or above, and you've been waiting a year for prices to go down, you're a fucking fool who could have gotten something way better by now solely based on what you already have. But noooo, these are consumption devices and consumption devices only! Spend money to spend more money! Kys.

I bought a 3060 TI and been mining with it for months while also using it for gaming.

My GTX 970 died mid last year, the timing couldn't have been more perfect to fuck me over. My CPU was old too so I eventually decided to settle for a 5700G so I could at least play SOME games instead of opting for anal rape by scalpers or miner cunts. The problem is that I don't have PCIe 4.0 support, 8 less PCI lanes and half the L3 cache, which means any graphics card I put in is gonna get fucked and I'll get ~15% less FPS than with a standard CPU. It pisses me off, but I'm not going to buy a card. Fuck that.

Why do people shill this thing so much? It has LPDDR5, a gimped form with less bandwidth than PC modules. It has 8 CUs, not the full 12 that Rembrandt will have. It will be low power with a TDP configuration of 10w, similar to the Switch. All that added together, and you're not getting performance any better than what current PC APUs can output, not to mention that if you tried to mirror it to an external display, it doesn't even boost or clock up to make it better. You're basically getting a sub-PS4 experience, minus the tight optimizations consoles get. He wants a PC card for a PC gaming experience. Not a handheld.

This is why I've officially given up on PC gaming. I bought a RX 580 for $170 awhile ago and it came with $90 in free games.
According to gpucheck, it out performs OP's pic by a huge margin.

So I bought a 1440p monitor to play the PC games I've currently got on Steam/Epic. Once I get through them, I'm selling my gaming PC.

Luckily, my retail job held me a PS5 and Xbox Series X. My 4k gaming is assured. Fuck GPU's and fuck PC gaming. I'm SO done with it all.

Look for used GPUs for less, you can actually get quite better deals than this usually and if you're lucky you can score on an ancent but beefy GPU like a 980/970 or a 780 for a decent price. Also GTX 1050s and 950s are fine options. Or go get a prebuilt if itps for cheap and has a not bad GPU for the price ane use that PC if it's decent or salvage it and sell PC, tho that heavily depends and is harder to do as of late.

...or get a laptop.

Bitcoin is unprofitable and has been for years. The recent Chinese crypto ban caused the difficulty to plummet to 2019 levels and it still isn't profitable for GPUs. The image you showed is for nicehash, a piece of software where you mine the most profitable thing your card can, and get paid in BTC regardless of what that is.
>>
>>84474717
Adding on to my last post ( >>84476237 ), the price of most crypto could go down the shitter and it may very well mean nothing assuming the difficulty also does. The network hashrate lowers, and suddenly it becomes easier to mine. When people stop or start mining something else instead, it only becomes easier for those who stay.

About a decade ago I bought a 7870. I ordered a 1070 when it came out on Amazon, returned the 7870 in the 1070 box, and Amazon accepted the trade and gave me a refund. Then when the 5700 XT came out, I ordered one, returned the 1070 I previously "traded" in the 5700 XT box, and Amazon once again gives me my money back in exchange. My $150 investment has really been paying off.

Protip: The planet is far beyond saving ever since the industrialization for WWI-WWII. It was merely a matter of time before ecological consequences had caught up.
Even if immediately cease all industrialization and cull 90%+ of the human population. The climate and environment will never regress back to pre-industrized times.
All of that "carbon footprint" takes millions of years to sequester back into the Earth through abiotic processes. Biosphere loves to hold onto its carbon with a death grip.
All of these efforts are just rationing in disguise trying to cope with the upcoming energy and resource crunch.

If all you really care about is emulation, then you can just get some dingy 5600G, forget the graphics and have a go with even PS3 and Switch emulation no problem, at least for the games that the emulator has compatibility with so far. If you want to go above and beyond the original specs of the emulator (eg 60 fps hacks on games that were never meant to run that speed), then Intel still has an edge. Xenia, the Xbox 360 emulator needs a stronger GPU than what an APU can provide due to the weird way the devs programmed it, but the compatibility is trash and it's not worth using for nearly any game basically, so it's not an issue.
