AMD RX Vega’s pricing was “not just for launch, but ongoing”AMD RX Vega’s pricing was “not just for launch, but ongoing”

Separate dedicated mining cards already exists (not for Vega though) but that doesn't change a thing. And there's no way to regulate it.


A large stock of the same GPU can be needed for all kinds of things, not only for mining.


For example, a lot of GPU's could be needed for rendering. Or for an internet café, or a place for kids and young adults to spend time at after school and evenings. Or all kinds of other things.


Sure, only making it possible for a company to buy larger stock could go a bit of the way, but seeing it's probably easy to just create a company (at least in Sweden, and doesn't cost a lot more than just above a hundred pounds), that's not a proper solution either.


The only real solution is to produce enough GPU's that the market (both mining and gaming) needs.

Indeed. The lack of supply with high demand will always drive prices up. Happened to GTX 1070's and most of high end RX 400 and 500 too. AMD and Nvidia didn't plan those price hikes. Shortages for one reason or another did it. To get the prices back down, they need to churn out more cards like no tomorrow.

No one said they should remove it. I just pointed out how majority of games that have the word 'Online' in the title are bad. Google "Online MMO" if you don't believe me.

To be fair, there aren't many MMO's in general that are super popular. Though some of the more popular ones do have "Online" in their name. Three quite popular MMO's I can think of is EVE Online, Elder Scrolls Online and Black Desert Online. Then there's Guild Wars 2, Final Fantasy XIV and World of Warcraft. Those are some the biggest MMO's currently, and 3 our of 6 has the word "Online" in them.


You are, however, correct in that the majority of games with the word "Online" in them are bad. Then again, the majority of games in general are bad.

I haven't watched the anime myself, but the anime (and novel, which it originates from) is called "Sword Art Online". Removing "Online" just because it's also a video game wouldn't make sense.

And it comes with a true horror story : It fails to include free locomotion, if only as an option.

Which for a ~1 year old VR user is about as fun as having to play a FPS on a keyboard without any mouse support : You'll spend more time cursing the controls then enjoying the AAA graphics.

Instead of a 10% discount, I suggest pricing the game at 36$ and selling a free locomotion DLC for 4$ (if not the other way around).
nu1mlock Avatar

It includes full locomotion and was confirmed at least two weeks ago (one week prior to your post). There's some places you need to get with teleporting though but shouldn't ruin your experience.

Quite disappointing that they still haven't added a sensitivity option.

I hope it's a typo because if he leaves the game and it would "still be complete", that means it already is and shouldn't be in early access. But I guess I'm nitpicking here.Reply
Fraser Brown Avatar

It's not a typo but he obviously doesn't mean it's ready now.

nu1mlock Avatar
To be fair, Nvidia already is and have been better for quite some time - just not when it comes to Ethereum. There are a lot of other coins available which Nvidia is better at.

Especially for home miners who might be limited by their electricity, where profit per watt matters. Density can be very important and Nvidia has been beating AMD for a long time.

Yeah so now we know destiny 1 was supposed to be on PC and sony paid them off. no reason for currency to be on a completely different platform and service.

Destiny appeared in the Steam database over two years ago. It's not news by itself. These silvers are, but not the game itself.

Eve: Valkyrie's Warzone update will remove the need for VR headsetsEve: Valkyrie's Warzone update will remove the need for VR headsets
nu1mlock Avatar
I've always said that EVE Valkyrie would work absolutely fine without a VR headset. And every time, people would claim it absolutely wouldn't work because it was "made for VR from the ground up".

Right, because Elite Dangerous doesn't work without VR.

Now, I own an Oculus Rift, but I see no reason it wouldn't work - and the developers doesn't seem to either.

I don't agree on that just because EVE Valkyrie expands to non-VR means the VR industry itself is unhealthy. It's just that the game is one and a half years old and people tend to mostly move on to new games. There are a lot of great VR games out there that aren't some crappy Job Simulator (though my daughter enjoys it) or quick cash grabs.Reply
Anakhoresis Avatar

See my comment about the weapons. Not that it would be an earth shattering change or something, but in the current state of the game, no it won't work, at least 1 to 1. They don't specifically mention anything about it that I can find on their website either.

Oh crap... the AMD Vega is “insanely good” at cryptocurrency miningOh crap... the AMD Vega is “insanely good” at cryptocurrency mining

"Andrew 'Gibbo' Gibson is suggesting the hash rate for the Vega GPU is between 70 and 100MH/s. With the RX 580 hitting about 25MH/s, and the GTX 1080 Ti offering 32MH/s, those numbers will be getting the miners all moist in the unmentionables. "

That's for a single algorithm though and Ethereum becomes less and less interesting to mine.

We'll see, but I wouldn't hold my breath for the Vega to be especially good for mining when there's better alternatives out there. Then again, that hasn't stopped miners from purchasing up everything that exists anyway.

I'm hoping they don't, gamers need to get their hands on some new Vegas.Reply
Dave James Avatar

Will be interesting to see what the power draw is like at that sort of hash rate too. If it's sucking down a load of juice at the time it could still make them economically nonviable for mining.
