Radeon RX 6000 cards go to crypto miners

The crisis in the graphics card market has hit most of the gamers who are having problems buying new Nvidia and AMD models. It turns out that cryptocurrency miners do not face such a problem – one rig dealer boasted of a fresh supply of new Radeons.

The problem with availability is due to insufficient production of graphics cards – the result is that the hardware is either not available or is available at an exorbitant price. Recent statistics show that the trend of rising prices is somewhat sustainable. both! The head of Nvidia expects the crisis to continue next year.

The store boasted of handing out new cards – the equipment will go to cryptocurrency miners

It turns out that the problem of buying graphics cards does not concern miners. Cryptominers Bahrain store, which specializes in building cryptocurrency miners, has boasted on social media of new graphics cards from Sapphire, PowerColor and XFX.

Anyway, see for yourself:

The screenshot shows hundreds of Radeon RX 6900 XT, Radeon RX 6800, Radeon RX 6800 XT, Radeon RX 6700 XT, and even older Radeon RX 580 models (these are versions with 8 GB of VRAM, which are still suitable for mining, for example Ethereum) .

Manufacturers sell cards to crypto miners

So it seems that manufacturers are handing shipments of graphics cards to stores specializing in construction rigs, and this is how they find their way into the hands of miners (there have already been reports that mid- and high-end models can be purchased en masse).

It is a pity, because some players can only dream of such equipment. It is common for stores to delay fulfillment of orders or even to suggest weaker, more accessible models instead of the desired one. So it should come as no surprise that the material revealed was met with outrage by players and the industry media.

What do you think of this approach? You are of the opinion that distributors can sell equipment to whomever they want, or they should prioritize players. Make sure to let me know in the comments.
