So.... Read the article.

Yes, the article does recognise that you do not mine Bitcoin with GPUs. It talks of other factors.

Thanks for that last part. You saved me from the trouble of embarrassing myself by complaining that Bitcoin prices are separate from GPU mining without actually reading that the article doesn’t just talk about bitcoin.

I did get my GTX 1060 6GB for $260, only $10 over MSRP. Lets just hope they, or any GPU at all, don’t increase to $100 over MSRP. Or, just don’t mine for Bitcoin, or do it with older GPUs a small amount of people will buy. I don’t know what to say by this point.

Anyways, a dedicated mining machine for $1000 with a special CPU (which these exist) will do much better.

They are called ASICs.
