Nvidia wird seine RTX 3000-Produktreihe mit Mining-Einschränkungen aktualisieren
The video card maker, seeing the price of ETH increase, decided to update all versions of the RTX 3000 card, adding restrictions on mining
New versions of the popular RTX 3060, 3060 Ti, 3070 and 3080 graphics cards will go on sale. When buying a card in a store, the consumer will not know whether it will receive an old and mining-usable version, or equipment with a hashrate restriction.
The updated series will have an identical appearance with previous and the same game indicators. However, they will have a greatly understated mining efficiency.
Thus, buying equipment in 2021, you play Russian roulette. Perhaps what you buy will be from the category "Lite Hash Rate." This is depressing news for miners.
