Newegg has fucking nothing in stock. Are you really gonna pay $400 for 1060? $1000 for a 1070? Hell no. At those insane prices, only people who don’t give a fuck about money are buying.
Sales volumes must be down. There’s just no way people are actually paying. Even if they make a sale and get a huge margin, I can’t possibly imagine that would compete with the steady sales of many cards at the usual margin.
Imagine a grocery store. They sell apples at normal price. They sell out. They get one blob of cash, good. Now they have no fucking apples. Then they get one apple to put on the shelf. They price it at $10. Nobody buys it. It just sits there. That is Newegg right now. No more moneys coming in except that very rare idiot who pays way too much.
It’s also possible that they’re selling at the same or even an accelerated rate and they priced it higher to keep from selling out too quickly.
As to the probability that’s correct vs the nobody’s buying is correct (or anywhere in between) anyone have some evidence they can put towards either probability? Does newegg do like quarterly shareholder meetings where revenues are discussed?
You mentioned in the episode debugging computers with linux. Have you tried booting up a linux image and keeping an eye out for crashes? At least you would have a shot at getting useful logs and stack traces.
Heh, the only one I’m worried about is the case size, which I doubt will be a problem. It’d be fitting into this mobo:
and this case
I would go measure but I actually can’t right now.
The reason I’m not too concerned is because the computer I wanna upgrade is one built in 2015, however I skimped on the video card and just used the one I had from back at RIT, I figured I’d replace it later and just… never did. This would be a huge upgrade.
I was actually thinking about this, isn’t one of the bugs like… an unpalatable in principal hardware bug? Which will required at least 1entire processor development lifecycle to dispatch with? How long is that. I thought years, based on everything I know about how when you build a processor, sending it to the FAB is like 3 months and like a million dollars and you have to do that quite a few times through the lifecycle.
