    Pretty confusing indeed, JayZ. Is it retailers, e traders, manufacturers or all of them increasing the price? A miner optimized driver LOL. Pretty soon we will see benchmarks for miners.

    I will say that when I bought this Asus 1080 TI I was able to negotiate the price down to the lowest on line price I saw. Had a friend very recently approach the same retailer who told him the GPU's are out of stock and they could order one but it would be $70 more than what I paid. Don't know if that has anything to do with mining demand. Makes me wonder what specific GPU's are these miners going after. Vega it seems but on the Nvidia side is it Pascal 1080's, 1080TI's or even dude's 1070 or all of them. Maybe we do need to see a mining benchmark.
    @specialkone do you mean like this?: Bitminter - bitcoin mining pool

    You need JAVA so probably need to use IE11

    Last I heard they were mostly going for AMD GPU's, I think the preferred one was the 480, mostly because of cost/production.

    I absolutely refuse to run a mining benchmark on my GAMING rig. .

    But there are mining benchmarks out there. Look at this. Dude's 1070 is holding its own which could be a great SALE'S pitch for him.:).

    Still wouldn't cooperate for me and run on limited user acct. I don't need any of the fancy light show stuff. So, I'm still staying with 4.6.0.86.
    Slippery mentioned that to us the other day. Still have my 4 phantom fans.

    Hey Doug, I was just messing around in GIMP again, her are 2 fire versions of your TUF logo in avatar size.
    I like the first one better.
