I really hope for AMD's sake that gamers are looking to snatch these things up, because GPU-based cryptocurrency mining is looking pretty abysmal at the moment. Assuming this card can do about 2MH/s, that's 0.0108 of a Bitcoin each day (by CleverMining's pump-and-dump pool). Of course, you aren't mining Bitcoins, you're mining altcoins that are being dumped onto exchanges where fools buy them with Bitcoins, in the (most likely false) hope that one day they'll be worth more than they paid. As the supply of fools dries up, profitability goes down.
Altcoins only have what little value they currently carry because not everyone who mines them, immediately sells. High end Scrypt ASICs will concentrate the distribution of coins to people who are only interested in cashing out. If a larger proportion of coins are dumped onto exchanges rather than held, well... Supply and demand - you do the math.
Between the new IRS rules and the supposed drama in China, Bitcoin has been on something of a downtrend the last few days. I've personally tried to accept Bitcoin as payment for some electronics I sold online, but by the time the buyer paid, I actually lost about $5. I would've actually come out ahead by accepting PayPal, fees and all.
I've come to the conclusion that cryptocoins are more-or-less a stock market fantasy game being played with real money. This isn't to say the concept of cryptocurrency can't work, but I don't think stability can be achieved if you're relying on a decentralized approach where people are only willing to run the a coin's P2P network when there's something in it for them.
If you actually payed attention to Oculus at all before Facebook bought them you would know it isn't a pump and dump, but all you need to know is that John Carmack and Michael Abrash are working on it. They aren't pump and dump people.
I'm sure Mt. Gox didn't start trading cryptocurrencies with the intention of screwing people out of their of Bitcoins, either. How a company starts and where they end up isn't always about their initial intentions. The Facebook deal was an insane amount of money for a company working on a product that, quite frankly, has been unproven in the marketplace because people simply don't want to wear bulky VR goggles. It's not a stretch to imagine they sold out to Facebook to cash in on something that may have not sold very well (outside of the vocal minority of hardcore gamers who do actually want VR goggles).
It seems every other week some genius thinks he can solve the stolen phone epidemic with a magical "kill switch". These people need to be slapped repeatedly with a clue-by-four, because as long as phones have value as parts or can be resold to fools, they will still be stolen.
But okay, let's imagine for a moment that all cell phones are suddenly equipped with a kill switch that makes them disappear upon being reported stolen. So, you believe desperate criminal types who are mugging people for valuable electronics are simply going to throw their hands up and shout "Curses! Foiled again!"?
This kinda reminds me how Bitcoin fans can go on and on about how secure the blockchain is and how amazingly difficult it would be to game the system. So, of course, the criminals simply resort to good old fashioned scams and schemes to nefariously obtain Bitcoins.
