Uh, so it looks like NVIDIA is considering making crypto mining specific Ampere graphics cards, that wouldn't have any display outputs, where NVIDIA -- in this climate, where GAMERS can't find their Ampere graphics cards to buy -- to make cards for crypto miners, specifically.
The news is coming from Colette Kress, chief financial officer at NVIDIA said at the 19th Annual J.P. Morgan Tech/Auto Forum Conference: "If crypto demand begins or if we see a meaningful amount, we can also use that opportunity to restart the CMP [mining-specific GPUs] product line to address ongoing mining demand".
Kress added: "We don't have visibility on how much of the GeForce RTX 30-series end demand comes from mining. So, we don't believe it's a big part of our business today. Gaming demand is very strong, and we think that's larger than our current supply".

I don't get it -- when the stories above that I've wirtten have detailed how f***ing hard it's going to be to buy a new GPU between now and April -- 3 months -- but NVIDIA is considering using Ampere GPUs that it has, to make crypto mining specific graphics cards?
