    Perhaps they should label them up as "Rocking horse crap"... which is what they'll become as scarce as within seconds of going on sale.

    Is "in transit" a euphymism for "on their way to miners"? Normal people surely will not get their hands on them.

    When they open these boxes they will find a brick in each box, affirming that only criminals and other evil people have anything to do with anything crypto.

    Sold in Bulk to miners that already pay double the price... where the real money is made for NVIDIA.

    To be fair you can now buy a few of the high end GFX cards from either brand, the problem is the price which are wayyyyyy past MSRP.
    And it is also a few, if you want one you can not be picky for sure.

    Got my hands on them and replaced the label. No one with any taste will go near them. Just be quick before they end up in a McDonalds burger...
