    Latest update from Nvidia on the power issue. Which equates to no update really.

    Code:

    But there is a plan for a new less dangerous interface :p

    I don't think it matters much to Nvidia to be honest. They know if they had a hardware problem where a chimpanzee popped out of the card holding a bat and cracked you in the noggin once every hour, people would still line up to give them nearly 2k for one.

    Right now and until the 7900 releases they have no competition for the most part.

    Sure they do. Their 30x0 lineup. People like me aren't going to upgrade to an inferior product that costs more.

    They posted earnings yesterday and beat on the top line but missed the estimates and whisper numbers. Stock is stable. They said they still have ton of 3000 series to sell off before they will produce the 4000 series in mass.

    Interesting they said that about the 3000 series. If I go to NewEgg they only have 1 3090 in stock and its $1350. If you look at their 3rd party sellers they seem to have some but then the price goes to what a 4090 MSRP is or higher.

    They are also in a recession, higher prices are the norm.

    At least in the US, we're supposedly not officially in a recession. They tell us it only feels like that. LOL
