Nvidia thinks they can pull a fast one on gamers looking to grab an RTX 3060, but we know you're smarter than that - Let's dig deeper and see if we can figure out why they're launching cryptocurrency mining cards...

    • ​@Ra awesome Yes, I know what he was saying, and it's BS. You know what's actually a great way to subsidize gpus? Having a job and creating something that actually contributes to GDP and humanity. You know what's not a great way? Wasting energy that could otherwise be used for actual productive purposes, and polluting the planet with carbon emissions, which will then require more energy/resources in the future to reverse. Incredibly profitable? Yes, it's because people like Linus and yourself promote cryptomining, which perpetuates the pyramid scheme by getting more people involved, which subsequently causes more damage. It's like telling a chemical company "You know what's incredibly profitable? If you dump your toxic waste into the ocean instead of disposing of it properly!" Greed is not an excuse to pollute the planet. Not to mention the cost/demand for GPUs would be less if mining weren't a thing. Great, so he decided to give up a sponsor in exchange to keep a chunk of his viewer base. But that video is still up, and it doesn't change the fact that he has shown himself to be dishonest and have no principles.

    • @Ra awesome Let's just hope that crack is not something an average miner can apply... I too heard of a crack by some Chinese miner.. And if by mods you meant workaround like mining other coin and swapping it is a different story, that can happen with even a CPU based coin, but they don't stack up CPUs..

  • Is there any more info yet about the capabilities of the CMP-cards? I have a p-104 (mining 1070) that I bought new after the crypto crash and it have worked fine for CUDA workloads like blender and F@H without hacked drivers. If that is possible with these new cards they also have a secondary value as CUDA accelerators or have Nvidia learned and kill everything they can that don't make money

  • Probably gonna get bashed for this but I 100% believe there should be a ban on crypto mining, for now, and for many reasons. 1. Its so bad for the environment, unless its on renewable energy such as solar or turbine, the amount of energy these computers consume is ridiculous and its impacting the environment. 2. It's soaking up every GPU in the market making it near impossible for us gamers to buy a card at a reasonable price, I for one paid 150% of the initial price to get the 3070 and I was lucky when i brought it, as now its gone up even further, and even the 3060 now costs 250% of its price at 1.1k. And 3. is because its crypto, untraceable money, money you're essentially making out of nothing but fossil fuels, plus bitcoin can only be spent on such a small amount of things, majority of that being the black market and other sketchy stuff. So as of now, crypto is doing more bad than good, and I cant wait for it to inevitably crash, hard.

  • The CMP GPU's are prior gen GPU's, they burn more power, they have a 3 month warranty and are worse than their equivalent 2060 chip. The whole thing is a scam to unload their excess chips and to drive up the prices of the 3080 to godlike prices and make things worse, a lot worse now.

  • I don't get it. Sure, cryptocurrency mining drives up the prices of GPUs, but it is entirely valid use of GPUs. Gaming, mining, whatever, if it is your GPU you can do what you want with it. And it is not like cryptomining is immoral or anything.

  • if nvidia cares about the gamers why would they lock the rtx 3060 and not the 3070 or 3080 or 3090 ???? i ofund by accident that the gtx 1060 is locked too in the new drivers version , so its obvious nvidia is just wanting to squeeze some more money of those who do mining , the litle money they make out of money , nvidia wants to take it from them, by forcing them buying the more expensive models , and not the cheaper ones that is known to be a better bang for the buck , nvidia wants miners to ditch the old gpu you have and buy a new one , but the expensive one

  • I've been saying this for years! and old phone on an old os ran as good as a new phone on a new os. people replace their 500$ phone every year and thats being conservative. I once heard a quote that said "if every person on earth lived like the average American it would take 6 earths to sustain us..." take it for what it is, an unknown quote, but it is but it feels accurate to me. We have a huge waste problem... And everyone is to blame... people against fossil fuels? what byproducts create the makeup women put on their face, pave our roads and encase almost every electronic device we own? It goes a lot further than driving an electric car and having solar panels If we really want to make a change! The go green movement is a joke and doesn't even understand the scope of the problem. They just want power and money like everyone else in the world... Speaking of thats kind of the problem, everyone has an ego issue and has to have the coolest new thing to feel relevant. I have felt that way myself but something happened one day. I grew up! Remember Bondage to Spiritual Faith --> Spiritual Faith to Great Courage --> Courage to Liberty --> Liberty to Abundance --> Abundance to Complacency --> Complacency to Apathy --> Apathy to Dependence --> and Dependence back into Bondage.” We are at apathy right now...

Now I can say that for the most part I find myself an exception to the rule in the way that I will invest in new upcoming businesses and look into what these businesses do and vote at meetings. But the vast majority of us investors only invest with personal bias and overall greed. Otherwise we would have more lifetime investors than day traders.
