They make GPUs? The things everybody complains are in short supply because of cryptocurrency?

Re-branding is cheap enough that they will keep on buying the same stuff with a wee bit of sticker re-badging magic until this blows over in a month or two.

well, the plastic riser for the usb 3 header on the itx Asus motherboard I got did come off, and the pins on the hd audio header were bent

Does this mean I can get a Gigabyte GPU soon for less than the price of a mortgage payment?

Excellent.

Given that there are major global chip shortages, major semiconductor bottlenecks, and everyone is reliant on Taiwan as a manufacturing chokepoint, Gigabyte doesn't have much to worry about. They're gonna sell everything they produce regardless of who bleats about what on whatever social media outhouse platform. Doesn't matter if its the Redhat Twitler brigade or the CCPs Weibo Wannabes or anyone else.

This GPU shortage is nutter butter. I remembered today that my buddy had a 1060 6GB basically mothballed in his house. I told him to send me a few pictures so we could try to sell it. Within an hour it had been bid up to $300 and he went ahead and sold it. He paid $250 in 2017. Silly, silly stuff.

A friend was going to sell me his 1080Ti Founders Edition for $150 until he realized what the market was like. =(

That would have been awesome, but I bet you'd have felt guilty.

My 2060 that I paid $330 for, 2 years ago, is now going for $1000.

So if the Chinese commies hate it, I'm for it. Is there a way to buy this stock on Robinhood?

Scum are scum, and they're not limited to an ideology or origin  They're like roaches, they're everywhere no matter where you are - if you don't see them they're just well hidden.  Their presence generally has fark-all to do with the validity or lack thereof of the cause they champion/claim to champion, because they're around no matter what the cause is.  So with China, you do indeed end up with, "Yeah... all y'all farking suck WTH?"

/mind you, that's "Chinese governments have been pretty shiatty for a long time now"
//not "Chinese people have been etc."
///important difference that some people seem to have trouble with

Just curious, but why does Taiwan do business with an aggressive enemy nation that openly plans on invading and enslaving them and has even browbeaten the U.N into denying their very existence?  I've asked friends there and from there and most of the answers I've gotten were hopelessly naive, including such excuses like mainland China has more to worry about than us, the U.S. has a treaty to protect us so mainland China won't invade to avoid starting a much bigger war. (This is not true any more, we USED to have that treaty, but it was canceled a while back if I remember correctly)  My favorite and probably the only one that makes any sense at all is the "They make too much money from us in bribes." excuse.
