    Looks like my i7-3770K is going to have to do me quite a while longer. Now I find it's 'Broken by design' i'm not replacing it with with something else broken by design. Had been planning to get one of the current Ryzen chips when the newer ones came out soon but not anymore.

    The question persists: what took them so long?
    And a new question arises (for me, at least): with inflated GPU prices for over a year, when are the GPU manufacturers getting investigated?...
    Do you mean "GPU retailers" ? AFAIK we are not the ones hiking the prices.

    But failing that we can always blame the Illuminati.
    GPU prices more or less got back to normal here in Brazil. But memory, boy, cost a arm and a leg. This remind me of the floods in Asia years ago, when one HDD factory stopped production for a few months and everybody and their mothers shoot prices through the roof. To this day you still cannot buy a HDD for the prices of yore.

    I rather like the small footnote to a free HDMI2.1 update for RX GPUs soon.

    It is *way* too late for that. These things take 12-16+ months to redo, depending on how complex the fix is.

    Since there was no mention of a successor for the RX 500 GPUs, does that mean there won't be any this year?

    If you believe the statistics at coinmarketcap dot com, the total market value of all currently active crypto currencies in the world is 750 billion dollars. Getting a piece of that pie is a pretty good reason to buy a GPU.

    I'm not doing it. I figure the chance to get rich quick passed within a few months of Bitcoin and Ethereum getting the crazy hype in the press. But to be fair maybe there's gold on the ground if you just put in a few hours of research.

    Amateur to prosumer miners who live in their parents basements and don't have to foot the power bill. The heat from the GPU's alone keeps the basement warm at night.
