Nvidia is a reliable name as far as graphics chips are concerned and who can deny the importance of graphics cards in the current market situation of cryptocurrency. This crypto mining factor has increased the bar so high, that the prices have grown at an insane level. Imagine buying a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti for $1600 and Radeon RX Vega 64 for $2100.
Nvidia Targets Gamers
As far as Nvidia’s own choice is concerned, they want their cards to be used by gamers instead of crypto miners. Here’s a statement by NVIDIA:
For NVIDIA, gamers come first. All activities related to our GeForce product line are targeted at our main audience. To ensure that GeForce gamers continue to have good GeForce graphics card availability in the current situation, we recommend that our trading partners make the appropriate arrangements to meet gamers’ needs as usual.
So possibly, we can see some crypto miners getting disappointed by Nvidia’s stance and an increasing shit will be seen towards Radeon chips. Brace yourselves for the possible upcoming price hike!
