Is this including consoles? Cause I have never seen one of these GPU's at my local store and its a rather large chain in Canada.
Yes, only consoles.
You link an article about console sales. Not exactly a way to make your point.
Mate, that article specifically mentions PS5 and Xbox Series S/X. There's no comparison to Ampere because they don't mention sales of RDNA2 based desktop GPU's.
The used system is irrelevant. The quote specifically said gamers, and a gamer is a gamer - it doesn't really matter if it's a console or a PC. Both types of users run their games on RDNA.

I'll remember that when I try to stick a PS5 into my ATX case, thanks.

Oh, since you also can't stick a notebook into your ATX case, lets just ignore any market share nVidia has on the notebook market. Got it ... thanks!

You said they sold 7 million+ RDNA2 GPUs to gamers and you 'quoted' the article talking about consoles.

I don't know in what twisted reality you're living, but no, you can't stick a laptop in your ATX case either - that was the point. And laptops don't represent dedicated desktop GPU share which is what our topic here is about. Note RTX 3060 in the title? You responded to guy talking about getting 'GPUs in the hands of gamers' and by some stretch of your imagination this also means laptops, consoles, and possibly also every single datacenter GPU ever made because hey, they're market share too right?

Why not include vacuum cleaners while you're at it?

Wow.

You won't see them in store because they are already sold by the time they come out of receiving.

You can twist the words however you want, but console and laptop gamers are also gamers and I linked the numbers to disprove the false claims. Your remarks about gaming on datacenter GPUs show, who is living in a twisted reality. Don't bother replying, I'm out of this thread.

Depressing really.

I was gonna ask you, in your neck of the woods, you seen any 6900xt or 3080 for sale? Over here, no stock in weeks

You can hit and run elsewhere, I'll reply anyway. You quoted selectively. Fluffmeister clearly said 'cards' and 'AMD GPUs'. That's not a console and its not a laptop nor is it about all gamers in the world.

Don't let the door hit you. I'll be there to correct BS the next time, too. That way we can keep looking at each other with a straight face instead of floating on deceit. Try it.

Guys, getting a little heated in here. Correcting misunderstandings, incorrect statements backed by data and good-natured ribbing are acceptable. Try not to let things get overly-aggressive, ok? Thanks!

Oh cool! A piece of equipment that decides what type of work you can do with it. Sign me up! -- Not.
Thats NVIDIA for you, capping the decode limit, cap the 3d cad performance. Do you want more performance with the same silicon? Buy this other product with 3x the price.

The miners when Nvidia said hashrate would be restricted:

Well, if anyone expected to buy a card this year or the next, better hope for a mining crash sometime in this decade.
