This only hurts gamers as dedicated miners will just use 472.12 or prior drivers.
Video cards have more uses than just gaming and are sold as such. There's nothing anti-consumer about mining.
I have. The issue is the driver(s):
I did. 472.12 works fine, but I primarily game and don't want to be stuck with an old driver.
Seems kind of underhanded for NVIDIA to stealthily...
There are posts on Reddit about this. Maybe it's specific to 3090s or even specific ones of those.
I know for a fact the hashrate on my EVGA 3090...
That's what LHR cards are for. They've never said that they're going to manipulate non-LHR cards.
Why are 496.13 and apparently 496.49 drivers cutting mining hashrates in half on non-LHR cards?
