I think it's become more or less a common colloquialism to use "Bitcoin" to refer to the entire cryptocurrency in general. Like in a lot of places every soda is "Coke".Quizzical said:Bitcoin is irrelevant, as that moved to ASICs years ago. Bitcoin competes neither for GPU dies nor for DRAM. It does perhaps compete for fab space at TSMC, but if that causes a problem, it's going to hurt lower price chips long before higher end GPUs.
Ethereum is the one to watch. The GPU shortage started with Ethereum around $100. It's now at $900. Even if that's far off of its high of $1400, $900 is still enough to cause some real problems for GPUs. If it gets back down to $100, we can declare this mess over unless some other cryptocurrency mined by GPUs takes its place.
I don't mean to argue against you here - you know you better than I do.Keushpuppy said:
Until consoles include keyboard and PROPER mouse support (raw mouse / 1:1), the console will always be limited to caveman-like gameplay. There is only so much you can do with a controller. As far as graphics and performance, yes... consoles can certainly compete. However, I won't touch one simply because of the limited controls / horrid community.
Same here at my age and condtion of my hands it has to be keyboard/mouse.
