Why you just have little chance to buy a graphics card as a gamer
A graphics card (likewise called a video card, display card, graphics adapter, video adapter, or display screen adapter) is a development card which generates a feed of result images to a display screen device (such as a computer system display). Regularly, these are marketed as discrete or committed graphics cards, highlighting the difference between these as well as incorporated graphics. At the core of both is the graphics processing unit (GPU), which is the primary part that does the real computations, however ought to not be perplexed with the graphics card all at once, although GPU is usually used as a metonymy shorthand to describe graphics cards. A lot of graphics cards are not restricted to simple display screen result. Their integrated graphics CPU can do added handling, removing this job from the main CPU of the computer system. For instance, Nvidia and AMD (previously ATI) produced cards that render the graphics pipes OpenGL and DirectX on the hardware level. In the later 2010s, there has additionally been a propensity to utilize the computing capacities of the graphics processor to resolve non-graphic jobs, which can be done through using OpenCL and CUBA. Graphics cards are used thoroughly for AI training, cryptocurrency mining as well as molecular simulation. Usually, the graphics card is made in the type of printed motherboard (growth board) and put into a growth slot, universal or specific (AGP, PCI Express). Some have actually been made use of committed rooms, which are attached to the computer via a docking terminal or a cord. These are known as GPUs.
You just tried to buy a graphics card for your gaming PC? Now, two experts have explained in an interview why gamers currently hardly have a chance to get a graphics card on a fair way.
Graphics cards and PS5 consoles are currently a rare good and are either hardly available or you have to pay thousands of euros on eBay for a graphics card.
Also, if many users are quite ready to spend a lot of money for a graphics card, only a few are ready to deliver with greedy scalds. But the situation should not be much better in the future.
Now two users had explained in a conversation with The verge that an average gamer is currently hardly a chance to buy a graphics card (via theeverge.com). The two persons lead a discord and take care of that gamers can buy a graphics card. For this they are now developing bots, as they have no chance today.
Because in the market retailers, bots and scalper would fight against each other with tools to get to graphics cards. A few people who just try to get to a graphics card for their gaming would have no real opportunity in the current situation.
Honest buyers have no chance to buy a graphics card
This is currently the big problem: For honest buyers it is normal to get the goods out of the shelf and then to go to the cash register. But bots, so the two explain, the scratch would just skip.
The bots would just use a back door and would simply buy all existing items — while all others are still in line and hope for a product.
In your interview, the two script developers explain how much they bother this situation:
Ultimately, it's bots and scales who drive the price for these goods and give them higher profit margins. Some retailers may even be happy about it because they can ship the goods as a pallet, which saves you a lot of money at the shipping costs.
Basically, one must invest hundreds of hours to save a few 100 euros. It was already great happiness if you would get a graphics card in a few hours for a good price.
Many users do not expect for days to the calculator because they do the search for a graphics card so much fun or because they had time for Corona. People want to do some business and gaming is one of the few ways to do something with friends at a time with Corona.
It's not just about it, I will spend a hundred hours here because I just want GPUs — it's the social aspect, the community, the common interest with other people.
We represent the little man, or would like to believe that
Meanwhile, the two users have also begun to develop various scripts and aids. For some dealers are so strongly occupied by bots that they have to develop their own tools to get past the other bots.
We develop scripts and auxiliary programs. We still check them manually, but we help you with some tricky things by offering small scripts they can do.
At the end, at least one hopes at least a few gamers to help get to a graphics card. But it is certainly one but never, as many users hide behind the anonymity and of course scalper or miner can use these scripts.
And they can not prevent scalper and miner anyway, because these are refined and had no desire to give up a possible profit. Thanks to affiliate links, the two operators would also get money from the graphics card purchases, but they could not lead a luxury life.
Gamer who would have received a graphics card would never show up again in the discord, because they finally got what they wanted. Scalper would never be reported, because these would know that the operators would throw them directly from the discord.
What do you think about the situation? Have you already been able to buy a graphics card or are you just equipped over greedy scales and poor availability? Tell us in the comments and discussed with other users.
