Been planning on getting in to PC gaming for months now. Just going to get a prebuilt with a GTX 1080 ti. Only way to not overspend.

Why not wait for the 11 series/Volta?
Prices are already coming down anyhow. Dudes on r/HardwareSwap and Craigslist unloading 1070s for $350 and 1080s showing up on EVGA's site for around MSRP.

Not really



Que? Both are selling like crazy.

NVDA stock has hit off more on the autonomous car technology but GPU sales of both have been solid. I may end up selling AMD if the GPU market isnt driving up their stock at this point. Not enough in the other pieces of their business and there could be a drop in crpto mining coming up.

Nvidia is pretty much the preferred manufacturer for alt coin mining since they're more efficient and mine the algos better.

The stocks rising have nothing to do with video card sales. They still manufacture the same amount and sell them to other manufacturers (asus, sapphire, XFX, etc) for the same amount, it's only the retailers jacking up prices

Interesting because I had heard the opposite and that AMD was the preferred. I am not an expert in the mining aspect of things so I won’t say I knew one way or another.

Would be curious to hear how strong sales wouldn’t impact stock. Nvdia is different in their business for sure, and GPU’s are only a portion of AMD’s business but strong sales of GPU’s should drive stock prices. Unless I have been doing stocks wrong all this time.

Because they just sell their GPU to the video card manufacturers like Asus, MSI, etc, so the sales effect the name brand manufacturers more.

AMD benefits more from their CPU sales since they are the sole manufacturers of them
