WHOA, WHAT?!? I don't have a chance right now to watch the video, but any reason as to why???
Because Nvidia is squeezeing all the profits out of the AIB's hands.
Then theres how they treat them, which isnt great.
Also Etherium GPU-mineing crash.
Nvidia has noted a loss of like 1,3bn, written off, from over production.
So they are stuck with alot of "dies" that have to be mase into graphics cards atm.
They are "forceing" AIB to buy old 30xx dies for GPUs, while knowing that Miners are about to go crazy selling used 30xx series cards for little to nothing. Apparently Nvidia are sitting on 4000 series cards, and wont really hard launch the 4000 series until April 2023.
They want to get rid of overstock.
They didnt forsee the etherium crash.
Also alot of these miners, used high end cards.
What do you do, when suddenly it doesnt pay mine anymore, because of engery prices, and the changes to etherium?
As a miner, you recoup whatever you can, by selling your GPU at whatever price you can get for it.
So whats gonna happend? Well 3080's are about to hit like 300-350$ for consumers, because of overstock and miners reselling.
Now Nvidia is forceing AIBs to buy old 30xx series gpu dies, to get a promis of future 40xx series dies, at old prices.
This means every GPU they sell, they will be loseing $ selling it.
Ontop of all that, Nvidia have their own founders editions, that they now sell at MSRP or lower.
Screwing over AIBs, that work with nvidia.
Nvidia makeing their own cards doesnt have a middle man, so they can afford lower prices than AIBs can compete with.
Ei. Nvidia is forceing the overstock issues, and minimiseing their own losses, at the cost of their "partners".
tons of other stuff.... its gonna get grim.
Lots of AIBs will probably go under from this, while Nvidia makes off with minimal losses.
End of the day, theres rumors of Nvidia trying to do what 3DFX did.
Ei. cut out the middle man (AIBs) and go onto makeing their own cards and selling them directly as well.
EVGA said, this isnt for us, we re bowing out.
We make more money selling PSU's and Motherboards, so thats gonna be our future.
