Ya'll can't even debate how terrible in shear concept it was to call their main customer base trash people, so have to go on these distraction topics to make yourself feel better or something.

I have no investment in the specific amount, it is not the point of the Gillette example. Feel free to pick some magic other number that represents purposefully agitating their customers did not positively effect the company.

And it will have exactly zero effect on availability, supply isn't really the problem, parasitic mining demand is. It's not like a gamer that got one and is now ok for years with it.

The original Kung Fu was fucking awesome-sauce. This is just going to be some sad woke bullshit. Fuck, CW just produces the worst garbage anyway.
Don't miners always accidentally find something - as it pertains to anything they're not mining for specifically. Saying that is rather redundant doncha think?
Well, we're headed into a month long lockdown starting tomorrow. Oh fucking joy. Meanwhile you guys down there are all vaccinated, doing a little dance, making a little love, and getting down tonight. There's no end in sight to this shitshow up here.

I still have my Pioneer Kuro plasma TV in the LivingRoom. It doesn’t look washed out, it never suffered burn-in. It’s 13 years old. It wasn’t those things that killed it. It was price / ability to scale down BoM costs. That’s it.

1 half of 1 percent (the way I'm reading it) is a major issue???
However, from the article:
AMD Ryzen 5950x x50 units 8 doa
AMD Ryzen 5900x x50 units 4 doa
AMD Ryzen 5800x x100 units 4 doa
AMD Ryzen 5600x x120 units 3 doa
That's a lot Higher than WaltC's numbers.

I don't think many people realize how big of a deal this will be in a few years once companies move past simple ARM recompilations into true optimization.
I said previously that ARM is the future of personal computing and I genuinely believe it. It will be like the transition from 68000 to i8086. There will be pundits and average people alike saying that x86-64 isn't ever going to be replaced...much as devotees of the 68000 did. Anybody use a 6800 based modern computer recently or any direct derivative thereof?
I have a friend and several colleagues at work who bought the Pinebook Pro. For anything other than gaming, it's what they use with a near fanaticism. Battery life for days, ultralight, cool as a cucumber, and it does everything they want it to do...for $199 USD. You can buy an optional add on to install an NVMe drive in to the laptop as well which it will boot from.Windows has an ARM edition, too, that is under active development.
We'll see, no doubt, but I think with Apple bringing ARM in to the mainstream with the M1 will cause others to follow if it is successful.

Oh and his excuse about the graphics card, I have been in Microcenter at least 4 times in the past month and they have had graphics cards of all makes for list price every time. You just have to look further than you nose.
Not everyone lives near a Micro Center. And What Micro Center have you been in? The nearest one to me is a 6 hour drive, and I have a sister that lives there. I was checking their stock daily. They seemed to get stock in every Thursday at that Micro Center, but they would sell out before she could go there on her lunch break. They won't let you purchase online and pick it up either. I heard people were camping out and started lining up early to get in when it opens.
After 2 months, I finally get an RTX 3070 from a Best Buy an hour away. I was checking them daily too, and when they did get stock, you had to order online and pick it up in person. Best Buy only seems to get stock of new cards once a month. The way it worked, on checkout it would search stores up to 250 miles from you and you had chose where to pick up, if one was available. It doesn't reserve the card when you add it to cart either, so the first time I tried they didn't have any in stores near me or were sold out before I could check out. I was lucky and got one the second time.

I really have to wonder about these tech magazines that constant spout unconfirmed nonsense. Like in the one talking about Gigabyte cards coming out, they consistently refer to the 3070 being faster than the 2080ti and I after looking at the 3080 test results that compared it to the 2080ti I have great doubts that it is true.
Personally I see the 3070 somewhere between a 2080 super and the 2080ti at best. Nothing worse than constantly spouting marketing nonsense.
One thing that is blurring these lines now is "traditional raster", "rtx", "dlss". Perhaps one can cherry pick a situation where the 3070 can equal a 2080ti. I no yesterday I read a lot of "NV lied the 3080 isn't x faster than a 2080TI", well in some cases it is.

Steam's latest hardware survey shows how unpopular RTX 2000-series GPUs are
The reality is: Not a lot of people have that sort of money spare for a video card.
Not really... it just shows that nobody wanted to upgrade from the 1xxx series.
