What you need to know
- A listing has been spotted for an alleged mining farm that includes RTX 4090 Ti and RX 7000 graphics.
- There's a very good chance that the listing is inaccurate.
- The mining farm in question has the power of 10,000 combined RTX 3090 GPUs.
Alleged mining rates for the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Ti and AMD Radeon RX 7000 GPUs have been spotted on Flexpool, but they're most likely fake. The mining farm itself is likely real, as it is producing Ethereum, but the hardware used to do so is in question. While it's not clear if the farm actually uses unreleased hardware to mine cryptocurrency, it has the combined power of 10,000 RTX 3090 graphics cards. (via Wccftech).
The mining farm in question allegedly has a collective mining rate of almost 2.5Th/s.
Mining farms generally have hundreds or even thousands of graphics cards working together to mine cryptocurrency. The listing on Flexpool does not specify how many GPUs are working together to hit such high numbers, though it would have to be a large set of graphics cards.
Regardless of which hardware it uses, the mining farm is a very lucrative one. With up to a 3.91 TH/s hash rate for Ethereum, the farm could get around 5 ETH every three hours. That would result in a monthly income of over $4 million.
There's a chance that the listing is for a massive mining farm with an incredibly high number of graphics cards working together. There's also technically a slim chance that some of those graphics cards are pieces of hardware that have not been released by NVIDIA or AMD at this time.

"There's also technically a slim chance that some of those graphics cards are pieces of hardware that have not been released by NVIDIA or AMD at this time." The article could have gone further noting how the mining farm could have gotten these un-release HW?
