      You should say Nvidia and Miners do not care about gamers nor the environment. These crypto goons proclaim their beloved currency as the path forward when all its achieved so far is a disruption of an entire industry that was never built by them. These lazy do nothing miners continue racking up the demand on electrical grids which are still mostly powered through fossil fuels they don't make new jobs on any meaningful scale so its not feeding families more than it is filling a greedy miners e-wallet. Scalpers are a problem for sure but if the demand wasn't already taxed enough as is Miners sure as fuck play a big role in perpetuating the problem which only works to serve scalpers. Nvidia, AMD, Miners, & Scalpers are the winners here, while the consumer and environment is fucked. Linus stop simping for crypto miner bullshit while placing ALL the burden on gamers to act in environmentally friendly.

      Cheating is a deal breaker for me , I always told the previous women I've had relationships with, the moment you are unfaithful is the moment you end our relationship. If I've ever felt so disconnected from my partner that I have felt myself drawn even into a hypothetical affair in my mind, I end the relationship. I've been in many abusive relationships (that I ultimately ended) but never once have I been unfaithful. Why? Because no failing relationship is worth sacrificing my morals and integrity for. No matter how it unfolds with a partner, there should be a base level of respect and empathy towards them as a human being. A failed relationship will not pollute your mind and foster insecurities anywhere near as as being on the receiving end of adultery. I didn't know what was happening all along for years that he's been cheating until I met RELIANCEDECK.COM

      @Nunya Bidness We live in a time where currencies like the Euro are failing and countries are suffering because of it such as Greece Italy and Spain ... a safe crypto currency like bitcoin is all but useful. Elon invested in bitcoin cause theres clearly going to be a market crash and cryptos aint affected by a crash so its safe to store your money there over some crashing shares in random stocks. I am truly sorry for any European but EU states are suffering and need to leave the EU before it crushes their economies into an ice age.

    I'll quit playing PC games before I buy cards off cryptominers. I'm not supporting what they do. It's a waste of GPUs and a waste of electricity. Supporting it will only make it worse. You don't give a shit about the environment if you buy their used GPUs.

    Hell you don;t care about customers either. You kn ow people get sick of ads constantly, watch an ad viddeo before your video starts, have ads on the screen while it's playing and them just rapid fire more ads into people's faces. Believe it or not beardboy, but people get sick of ads, and every day there are more of them. Sure no big biz cares about customers, stop acting like you're and different. You may have been a person once, now you're just an ad delivery system.

    the funny thing is games do not push these new cards yet.... i still game on my old 1080 ti which games the exactly the same as the 2080ti... let the miners have the new cards for the first year... because Nvidia has had those 3000 sitting on a shelf for a while waiting for AMD and games to catch up.... and i really don't care about people who want to make rants with videos... what a waste of my time... at least say something important...

    You could say the same for any other company. Not sure if AMD/ATI is different. If you research a littl bit to find arguments to say the same for AMD/ATI i bet you will find some. In my opinion it is a good choice not to lock it. It is not their fault, that crypto miners use their cards. The cards are also required in research and engineering aswell. They could sell a different card aswell, like the quadro cards, but they decided to go a different way. Well i think this is quite okay. If Bitcoins would be banned as illegal, like it should be, nobody would have these issues. Crypto curreny is one of the biggest crimes of this centuary. If you unlock the gef3060 i guess the big minors will just add them to their stock.

    Chip shortage and intel ireland Farmer's objection to Intel expansion back before High Court February 11 2021 09:55 AM The High Court has been asked to amend the grounds of a legal challenge brought against An Bord Pleanala's decision to allow Intel Ireland proceed with a €3.76billion expansion of its Co Kildare plant. The action has been brought against the board by Thomas Reid who lives a short distance from the Intel Campus at Collinstown, outside Leixlip which employs 4,500 people. The proposed expansion, if given the go ahead, would be one of the largest construction projects in the History of the state. www.independent.ie/business/farming/news/courts/farmers-objection-to-intel-expansion-back-before-high-court-40078906.html

( just € 435,- / $ 525,- each ) It's better use then playing dumb games on them ! Gamers need to stop crying, grow up and realize the world isn't just a nice place ! Gaming is an waste of time !

    The simple fact is crypto is here to stay and is a growing market, for any company to ignore it would be like ignoring the automobile when you had a horse. Also if you think any company isn't worried about making profits you have fooled yourself into believing in something that doesn't exist!

    Very impressed that you have addressed this issue holistically. NVidia has become over the decades quite greedy indeed; there is no reason for them not to make money and be a good 'citizen' also. Nvidia is rightly hated in our linux community and now it will be hated by gamers. They deserve slumping stocks till they correct their asinine attitude. Also very impressed how you understood that the 3 R's come in a sequence and recycling is mostly a pipe dream... Cheers

    Nvidia is in the AI space now guys. The Tech isnt about gaming. It's AI, and other tech to bring in the cashflow. Military, AI, Currency etc. Gaming is just a by product of tech. And stfu about companies and share holders. They are LEGALLY forced to care more about stock prices. If a company did something to benefit the customers over the shareholders, That would open them up to lawsuits. LEGALLY. Blame your government for passing these types of laws.
