NVIDIA has published some of their thoughts on the GPU pricing situation – speaking with ComputerBase, spokesman Boris Bohles thinks that gamers, not miners, are more deserving of their products and that retailers should better meet their needs. There is no indication that NVIDIA will actually engage trading partners to ensure this happens, however.
“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.”
NVidia makes cards to sell. Distributors and retailers sell cards so please stop crying. Welcome to supply and demand 101. If you don’t like the price, don’t buy it. Hey I know, maybe you can get the government to regulate the sale of video cards! Ya, that’ll help.
