Meanwhile, while they're there,
Russia like China is doing whatever it can
To embed hacks & back doors into Nvidia SW & HW.

* good plan there! * 🤨😑🙄

It's a piece of knowledge enough to make me want to stop using their tech, totally.
No cancel
This is simply protecting myself from ANY tiny hole in my own system.

One less thing to worry about.

Dunno, Russia might become a dumping ground for cheap 4090 chips after they booked the production and the market crashed.

I, for one, am looking forward to Nvidia's top teir GPU cards not costing as much as the entirety of the computer I'm planning to build this year

The fark. Russians don't deserve GPUs. Make the next russian language driver update brick their existing ones, assholes. It's farking criminal that any farking russian has a computer more modern than a c64.

Only for one month.  Do they know something?

Can you tell me more about tiny holes in your system?

To sell to who? Nvidia made them for the Crypto Miners, just like all those 3000 series cards collecting dust now.

They went from record sales (there was NO SHORTAGE during the pandemic, plenty of cards were sold, but retailers got leftover allotments after the miners got their pallets) to a trickle in the past few months. I suspect the sales slowed around May as many miners realized new cards were a poor investment - what sales they had were high end cards to miners who didn't believe Etherium would switch over (or didn't pay attention to the news).

Screw them. The 4000 series ended up being "meh" - DLSS3 is about making fake frames, which, when you see those frames, look like total ass. AI and motion vectors can't predict a frame without knowing the destination (next frame) - and once they have the next frame, what was the point? Until the AI becomes precognitive and sees the future, those fake frames will ALWAYS look like ass. There simply isn't enough information to generate them. The pricing strategy was pure damage control, too... insulting us with a 4060ti (192-bit memory bus, 12GB RAM) and calling it a 4080? Jensen has lost the plot and wants to put the people who helped make Nvidia a graphics juggernaut into the rear view.  It's time to remind him how much he still needs that enthusiast market.

It is badly auto-translated, Nvidia will close the office by the end of October, not until.

...This is why I still have my S3 ViRGE....

Lots of companies are present in Russia, as its one of those sanctions that is yet to be imposed on Russia.

When I play Hearthstone for instance, I often have Russian opponents. So it's clear that tech companies are present.

Well, if we keep young Russian men at home playing games, they won't be healthy enough to conscript.
