AMD Radeon GPU’s In Short Supply Due To Mining Popularity Boom




/ 6 years ago

AMD Radeon R9  290X (11)

Cryptocurrencies are literally one of the coolest things on the planet right now, and just like a gold rush people are flocking in big numbers to strike it rich by mining the coins. The main component of doing such a thing is AMD graphics cards and while they can be mined well on Nvidia hardware, AMD hardware performs significantly better at the task.

The price of BitCoin, LiteCoin, WorldCoin and no doubt many others is booming fast as the scene heats up, people are running ASIC miners, cooking GPU’s, building epic mining rigs, all in the name of turning some computer time into cash, some with greater success than others.

Personally I think most mining systems are a waste of time these days, but that hasn’t stopped people trying to get in on the action. Of course the real winner here is AMD and I can bet they’re not upset about the recent boom in popularity for their GPU’s.
