Are APU's the new normal?

Post#1 by n0ctilucient » 09 Mar 2018, 14:07

With great difficulty... I tried to purchase a GPU today and it's not even the one I want (ie... Galax "Katana").
http://www.xfxforce.com/products/amd-ra ... -550p2tfg5

Over the last year... the scalpers and crypto miners (ie... Ethereum ?) have caused chaos and confusion
by buying up all the GPU's with no end in sight (with some even renting Boeing 747's for transport). :wall:

Not only gamers are affected. It seems that even science and medical research is feeling the pinch.

Are Accelerated processing unit 's the last resort?

AMD's Newest Processors Are So Good You Can Skip the Graphics ...

:hmmm: I do NOT have the "right" to tell anyone what they should do...
but I reserve the "right" to tell them what they should "consider".

It seems impossible to get a decent discreet GPU @ a decent price. :wall:

I give up :cry:

But is there still hope? The crypto miners have no use for APU's...
