        Based on your comments on a couple of our NVIDIA posts I'm going to go out on a limb and say you own the stock, haha.

      This makes sense. Cryptomining is waning, supply chains are hurting... the bell is curving back down

      nVidia stock was overpriced, especially compared to AMD which has had bombshell earnings time and time again. I never understood why people love nVidia so much over AMD.

      I've had THREE GeForce cards die on me over the years (since ~2000 or 01) and never ever had an Ati GPU artifact on me. Yeah the drivers aren't as good but nVidia is just over-hyped IMO.

        Really shows the difference between being levered to Taiwan and Korea for chip fab versus China. That has been a large takeaway from this quarter's earnings results for me.

        Nvidia has had bombshell earnings as well, repeatedly, for like two years now.

          Their P/E ratio got way ahead of their own growth numbers. Not the company's fault at all, just expectations got too high.

            Precisely. Whereas AMD consistently gets beat up...for what reason I can't fathom.

              I would agree AMD is undervalued, but they get beat up for good reasons. They put out pretty shoddy technology (FSR, or their honestly pathetic attempts at matching nvidia's raytracing efforts, for example) along with terrible marketing and bad PR.

        I've had enough issues with nVidia drivers that I've had to revert at least three times in the past three years due to performance issues or game crashes following an update. I like to update out of habit but if it ain't broke I won't rush to update anymore. Generally if it's a specific game they had to release drivers for then maybe.

      That Crypto money tree isn't sprouting as many branches right now.

      Hope this means that we'll actually able to buy the new Nvidia cards.
