Can you use VR goggles instead of a monitor in a reasonable way for normal computer tasks ?
Does it fulfill the promise that you can simulate a big screen without having to put a big rectangle on your desk ?
>Though I'm more hopping Intel's cards will drop the price of cards.
Intel has a new factory that is partially operational, if arc cards add chip supply, then that might lower prices, if this is just a different design that competes for existing chip production, it will do nothing thing to reduce prices.
As long as there is a supply shortage of a commodity it is possible to make money just by buying up supply, to intentionally make the shortage worse, to make the prices go up and then resell at a higher price. Money and markets do suck at rationing goods especially when there is an inelastic supply shortage. There is basically infinite amounts of financial capital available to buy up cards and store them in a warehouse somewhere and sit on it until they "appreciate" sarcastic cough
. Intel graphics cards are not immune to this unless Intel makes a lottery where people have to sign up with their real name and address to get a chance at buying them.
Open questions are if their drivers are good, and if intel cards are economical for mining. If the video drivers are buggy and the mining performance is good it might not make much of a difference for people that play video games.
