NVIDIA tried its best to limit the appeal of the RTX 3060 to cryptocurrency miners. Unfortunately, it's possible to work around the handicap imposed on the graphics card and enjoy a relatively stable experience.
New variants of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 and 3070 will have hash rate limiters to make the cards less attractive to crypto miners. The reduced hash rates could potentially make the cards more available to gamers.
NVIDIA's upping its game against the crypto mining frenzy that's gobbling up GPUs faster than they can be made. The company's improved hash limiter is designed to encourage miners to leave GPUs to the gamers... for a little while, at least, hopefully.
AMD's Q1 earnings call cited a lot of success. However, crypto's role in said success remains uncertain, even though its impact was defined as "negligible"... without further concrete information provided.
Many thought the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT would be a great GPU for cryptocurrency mining, but it seems this may not be the case. Early hashrate figures put this GPU behind the more affordable RX 5700 XT, making this graphics card appear as a bad deal for mining.
NVIDIA makes some of the best GPUs on the market, thus the collection of RTX series graphics cards also make for good mining GPUs. The best value option is the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti, but just how good is it for crypto mining?
It's been difficult to purchase a GPU for years now and it doesn't look like the situation will be getting any better. To help remedy the problem, NVIDIA is looking to launch new dedicated mining cards and updating drivers to lower the hash rate on gaming GPUs.
Just when you thought cryptocurrency miners couldn't enrage gamers and PC builders further, someone decided it would be a good idea to buy a bunch of NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3090 cards and set up a cryptocurrency mining rig in the back of a BMW i7 roadster.
