henrickdI hate to be the bearer of bad news but the cards will still sell out anyway and get scalped because of high demand.Also it's only a matter of time that the hashrate limiter is bypassed if it's a driver restriction. If there's a true hardware-level restriction on Eth mining, there are still plenty of other coins to be mined. Look at early days of the 3060, still made a few dollars a day on Octopus.
zuberchlet me get gpu first then i will worry about hashrate lol
-jay-Its not even a hashing/mining issue. The shortage is just due to massive global demand for semiconductors.
EtherealZoonDo we expect an announcement for the LHR series or is it a silent update? For other companies they seem to be new SKUs but I don't know how this is going to work with EVGA and their queue system.
ferpixioWould the LHR change be retroactive to previously released/sold cards? Also, what will happen with the RTX 2000 series (would the LHR limits apply once the new driver is installed)?
hoffmannbeckmy fear is about legacy cards. If they limit mining for cards that was sold and we expect to work like that and they just go there and limit mining in a new driver/bios update.
bonzogoatslayerI don't think it would really affect demand, as long as Ethereum is high miners are going to buy whatever they can get their hands on. I still think the biggest issue is supply, TSMC and Samsung still aren't producing chips fast enough for anyone. I'm sure if they have to cut production of graphics chips for hobbyists to make room for industrial or medical chip orders they'd do it, if they haven't already.
