    It's amazing that people have such short memories :p This was tried last time and it failed miserably. Miners don't want cards they can't re-sell - when they're 95% knackered - to some poor sod at as close to the full retail RRP as possible.

    Because miners are lovely people.

    Some sort of wear/mileage chip would be a good thing to implement on GPU's. I doubt the big two are interested in making that a reality though... Or a co-ordinated hack on some big crypto exchanges, that would probably have the same affect on GPU price/availability. :D
