Re: EVGA GTX 10 series availability
Seems to actually be multiple factors.
Nvidia seems to have had a very good holiday season, as the shortage didn't get noticeable 'till around New Years.
I also suspect they are getting hit by the production changeover to the Volta consumer cards - TSMC mentioned that they anticipated that in "late 2017" in a guidance a few months back.
Mining is definitely a factor - but normally affects AMD cards first and harder.
THIS time around, NVidia was getting hammered at least a week BEFORE AMD cards started getting hammered.
I DO NOT think it's just the miners - otherwise we'd be seeing a lot more shortages on the 1060 NOT just on the 1070 and up *AND* AMD cards would have been bad shortage BEFORE the middle of this week while NVidia bad shortages go back about 2 weeks now.
I am no longer the friendly FAH competition - thank Vorsholk and his ABUSE of his Curecoin developer position for that.
I no longer MOO due to abuses by certain "whales" in the Gridcoin community - so I now work the Distributed.net project directly again.
