What a stupid response. You do realize some people want to game and mine. But now you have to buy 2 cards to do that. You also would probably have uninstall and reinstall the gpu every time you wanted to mine or game, or conversely you would need 2 desktop computers (assuming you can't slot the mining GPU in the second PCIe x 16 slot).They are literally making a whole line of GPU for you to make profit off their products.
They just want their gaming cards to go to gamers.....which is of course evil as fuck, why would make a device for gamers and then want gamers to have it.
But now they're gimping their graphics cards, when they've never done this in the past, and technically offering less features for the same price (because you just know that Nvidia isn't going to lower the price on the gimped RTX 3000 cards).
There should be an out cry from everybody, and not this nonsensical "oh but Nvidia is doing it for gamers". No they're doing it for themselves, to double up on profits.
There's no positives to this. Like Linus said it's going to create a ton of e-waste, etc. If I were to guess, I would say you only are staying what you're saying because you probably don't have a graphics card, and have deluded yourself into thinking this will make any difference in availability.
