    That was fast. Now imagine creating a new product specifically for miners (with no value to gamers trying to get a second hand card) and your mainstream gamming segment got hacked to also provide value to miners

    IMO miners are getting most of the cards these days and after this latest news the ball's squarely in nvidia's court now.

    They'd have to add a hardware lockout to stop this, really.

    PC gaming is virtually dead if this continues...Probably time to get myself a PS5 or an Xbox Series X.

    1. To create videocards without hardware needed for mining but with some new hardware needed for gaming (instead of old one which can be used both for mining and gaming).
    2. To create time machine, to go back in time and prevent people from creating digital/crypto currencies.

    Even a zombie pc gaming is better than a console.

    I've found the more a company tries to prevent you from doing something through software and makes bold claims about how "uncrackable" it is, the sooner people manage to figure out how to work around it.

    So now, Nvidia will be making these useless mining-only GPUs that miners are likely to avoid getting, making the availability problem even worse than it already was.

    The opposite. Demand has never been higher for PC parts! You just have to keep trying.
    I recently upgraded my old GTX970 to an RTX3070 and I paid standard prices. It's hard, but not impossible.

    Hmm... Maybe you can point me to the direction of an RTX 3070 or 3080 near/around their SRP if there are really any available now.

    The solution 1 is impossible, if it can calculate then it can mine... and you need to calculate to render.

    Solution 2 is the better one (sadly for us).

    You can't do it if you follow Samsung instruction... but you can do it (usefull to change kernel on android).
