sibeh bth miners. AMD out of stock in SLS and Lazada.

Didn't realise mining has a huge following here.

Wanted to get a RX 580 to replace the 390 i sold off.. major players all OOS. Only left 550s..

Miners really buy up by the carton, leaving nothing for gamers.

Need to have a clampdown on how many miners can buy per order. This will hurt AMD in the long run.

Even 1070 also out of stock liao. x80 and above i don't want cos i waiting for Vega.

The 580 is to tide me over until Vega and replace the 270x in my bro rig when it goes.

But first time i grasp the mining situation sia. worldwide in short supply and inflated price.

don't see what's so good about mining.


because of it worldwide in short supply of cards.. those who really want to buy have to LL.

Even Nvidia not spared liao. 1060s and 1070s all no stock.

ya but the one i really want is the 580. Futureproof, rather cheap and don't want to spend much since waiting for Vega anyway. 580 actually to tide me over until Vega then replace 270x.

Crypto-currency. Bitcoin. Ethereum. Google about it.

I always wondered why AMD cards are the preferred choice for crypto-currency mining. It's not about GPU performance right? Otherwise why don't people use GTX1070 /GTX1080?

Cost-performance ratio. Im not too sure, but AMD cards can crypto coins slightly faster than nvidia. And its cheaper as well, in the beginning of this craze.

Only when Nvidia slashes its pricing on GPUs to the same level as AMD in terms of performance-per-dollar, then only crypto-currency mining will be brand-agnostic.

Will u spend money to buy like 15 RX580 or 15 GTX1070 to run them concurrently for mining purposes?
