A PC enthusiast honest opinion about mining

EnglishHardwareRant 2 comments - Kagamin

DISCLAIMER: I consider myself a PC enthusiast so my opinion about mining is one-sided. And yes, I’m angry.

I wanted to build a new rig… WANTED. As GPU prices hit new records I’m no longer able to buy a new PC. And the sole reason is? MINERS.

Reason of the price jump

I don’t really understand people caring and spending so much about… well, what… mathematical formulas? And worst part is they are not currencies anymore because they are investments. The number of altcoins slowly but steadily will reach the number of the stars on the night sky. This situation is a complete joke except nobody laughing.

After watching five episodes of Yuru Camp I’m clearly hungry. And so reading “ketchup” in artist’s name… well, doesn’t help a bit.

Warm and fuzzy feelings are good.

One of my friend linked me this gemstone. My reaction to this one was…

Man, f*ck gravity!

My favourite quotes from this message:

  • “Is Intel really planning on making this shit architectural? Has anybody talked to them and told them they are f*cking insane?”
  • “And that’s actually ignoring the much _worse_ issue, namely that the whole hardware interface is literally mis-designed by morons.”

These ones are made me giggle. 😀

Update: Bryan Lunduke also uploaded a video about Linus’ reaction.
