Cheaper to buy a Titan Xp than a 1080 ti. It's ridiculous. Especially around tax season. Nvidia will lose a lot of business if they don't push put some more cards soon.

They aren't losing out at all! The second any cards are made they are sold off and bought immediately in droves by miners. So long as mining is profitable cards will be expensive :/

Nvidia is probably making a killing rn. Since everyone is buying up the cards. How are they losing business?

They lose business because as soon as a card with better ROI comes out, they dump their old cards, flooding the market with older cards. Or so it has been posited by those in the graphics card industry.

Soon is like 3 or 5 months from now. When the new Gtx 2070 and Gtx 2080 comes out. Then the miner will sell their old card for the new and more efficient 2000 series. The miner will by the new cards because it is more power efficient because of smaller transistor. Miners need power efficient card to make profits. So it is worth it for them to sell the old card by the new cards. This is just what i think what it will happen if this keeps going. The Miner will most likely get the new card and pc builder would have to buy it from ebay. Or Nvidia still manufacture the old Pascal card besides with the new architecture. The new card can mine and game but just more efficient. My opinion.
