PC gamers are suffering a serious shortage of NVIDIA hardware due to direct sales to crypto miners.
If you have been following the news, you'll probably have seen that there was a large sudden spike in the value of cryptocurrencies which had miners scrambling to up their game and invest in the best GPU hardware for their systems.
But how does this involve NVIDIA? Well, a decent and powerful graphics processing unit (GPU) is very capable of performing many multitasking calculations per minute, which leads to improving the output for the entire crypto mining processes. NVIDIA, one of the world's leading GPU manufacturers, sold over $175,000,000 worth of RTX 30 Series graphics cards in direct sales to crypto miners! As a result, they haven't been able to keep up with the demand for gamers, which has the entire gaming community in rage!
So, console gamers who are currently experiencing shortages in the new gaming consoles from Microsoft's new Xbox range and Sony's Playstation 5 range, are no longer mocked by PC gamers as the tide has turned!
