The GPU shortage keeps getting worse, thanks to surging demand from gamers and cryptocurrency miners, alongside a host of other factors. Prices continue to skyrocket to satirical levels, and Nvidia says the shortage will likely last through all of 2021—which means you may not get that upgrade until next year at the earliest.
That’s a long time from now, which means it’s time to make some compromises. Here are the next best ways to get your fix when you can’t build a new system.
OK we’re going to try this and see how this goes ;)
I anticipate doing some Age of Empires 2 streaming with fellow podcast host Qwerty on Friday night from around 9PM (Sydney Time). Would love to see some CrispyGeekers come in and say hi.
If there is sufficient interest … well maybe it will become a regular thing and we can get you guys involved in some social gaming …. thing.
If you’re keen to drop in and say Hi, feel free to drop in here.
This came up as a bit of discussion off-air after doing the latest podcast record.
In an effort to drive a bit of engagement with the site, would there be any interest in doing a regular gaming night? I’ve got a few avenues I could go down – for instance setting up Minecraft, or run through some of the Jackbox games. I’m also open to possibly other games, though I don’t necessarily have a huge budget to add the games to my library
I’ve got a Twitch and Discord account set up from some previous stuff and that can be reused if necessary, though at the moment it doesn’t carry the CrispyGeek branding. I’m open to people’s ideas as to what form would that take (ie. broadcast through Twitch, or just do it via Discord). Let me know in the comments and we can start working towards something to get us started.
