Is there going to be a GPU waterblock for the Asrock 6800XT Taichi.
Whether a cooler is worthwhile for us depends on the sales figures of the card and our capacities. And ASrock has no significant sales figures for graphics cards in Europe and North America. So our main markets. It doesn't matter if a card is the best or fastest card. These are not criteria for us. It has to make sense for us from an economic point of view. And it doesn't make sense here at the moment, sorry.
I'm sorry, what? ASrock has been selling tons of cards, they are one of the few vendors on the newegg shuffle constantly. Furthermore, in the land of crypto mining, and GPU shortages, why on earth would you even look at sales figures? Your demographic (People that water cool their PCs) are enthusiast's. Enthusiast's purchase the best graphics card they can get their hands on. Yet you have blocks for the 3060? I'll bet that's a loss leader. Meanwhile you have the ASrock 6800xt/6900xt, both of which use the same PCB, this PCB is basically a reference board with a few minor tweaks, NONE OF WHICH involve the cooling plate. Which means all of the R&D would be getting the plexi to fit properly, which would take you what....a week? So you'd have to sell what, 50 blocks to break even? That's just on the block, which ignores the fact that this is an item the market currently does not have. I bought the rest of my stuff from EK, you had an opportunity to GAIN a customer, a customer that might come back and purchase more stuff. Instead, I guess I'll just take a Dremel to a corsair block and be done with it.
He says to the currently unsatisfied customers. So what's the MOQ? How many are we talking about?Good suggestion, but unfortunately not easy to realise. Despite the lack of GPUs, the machines don't stand still. The pre-order issue doesn't work like that, because time is not our friend here. Preorder - production - transport... that would be very counterproductive and would not lead to increased customer satisfaction.
