What do you do with cards that used to be great at mining that get outdated? Sure, there’s alt coins, but which of those will really pan out in the long run? Plus, with the advent of mining software that switches what you’re mining, wouldn’t the difficulties of all major coins, mined by the same hardware, eventually even out?
I’m hoping there’s a healthy aftermarket for 4gb graphics cards in about a year. Are there really that many starving gamers? Have miners really cornered the market for GPUs?
