    GeForce value over time and 40-series pricing.

    Here's the thing, at this point nothing cuts into Nvidia's profits from the 30-series. Those contracts have long been signed and most of the GPUs have shipped long ago. Nvidia may be helping AIBs to move their inventory, but that would be just a gesture of good-will trying to stay on their good...

    GeForce value over time and 40-series pricing.

    No, it wasn't. 3090 has 10,496 working shaders, CMP 90HX only has 6,400. Clearly a salvaged part, with almost half the shaders disabled, I'd say.

    GeForce value over time and 40-series pricing.

    Well, if you must insist... https://www.techpowerup.com/gpu-specs/cmp-90hx.c3783 "Unlike the fully unlocked GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, which uses the same GPU but has all 10752 shaders enabled, NVIDIA has disabled some shading units on the CMP 90HX to reach the product's target shader count."...

    You play a fine game of relying on rumors and "facts", I'm gonna leave you to it.

    Windows keeps defragging one of my SSDs

    Yeah, such a routine operation, I'm wondering why people aren't doing it more often :D

    Windows keeps defragging one of my SSDs

    You can always run it yourself. Or maybe script it and add it as a separate scheduled task.

    Windows keeps defragging one of my SSDs

    Stop fragging it, I guess? Also interesting, it claims it writes more than it reads. I hope that's not write amplification. Edit: On a more helpful note, I was able to dig up this: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/windows-10-alert-defragger-bug-defrags-ssd-drives-too-often/

    GeForce value over time and 40-series pricing.

    Yes, because overpriced, repurposed defective dies moved so large volumes... Of course Nvidia was aware. Consenting? I'm going to go out on a limb and guess you don't have a shred of evidence of that. All you have proven is that you can pick, choose and misrepresent to make your point. Pretty...

    GeForce value over time and 40-series pricing.

    Which mining cards? Nvidia doesn't make video cards. They "make" a small amount of reference ones, but that it. What exactly did they "allow"? That they did and mining was probably one of the reasons. But you have no proof it was the only reason. Let's cool off a bit and separate facts from...

    CPU for virtualization (VirtualBox)

    Without further information, you can assume they'll be picked at random and you may be able to exert some control by disabling E-cores entirely or use process lasso to avoid them. Whether you want to do that or you'd be better served by a homogeneous architecture (i.e. Zen), I cannot say. I'd...

    GeForce value over time and 40-series pricing.

    I am not sure how you're going to extract a trend when the past few years have been so atypical and MSRPs have been wishful thinking at best.

    CPU for virtualization (VirtualBox)

    I'm not sure how VirtualBox feels about E-cores. That may be a factor in deciding what to buy.

    Could A RADEON INSTINCT MI25 Be Good For Gaming? ? ?

    Where do you figure the other half of the "DisplayPort" connector is? Because you can see the table through the hole next to it.
