    NVIDIA recently announce tor segment and split gaming and mining cards, the first AIB partner to have a product ready is Gigabyte. Meet the 30HX, which really looks like the Gigabyte GTX 1660 SUPER OC...

    they are turing after all.
    both tu106 (2060) and tu116 (1660) go into hx30 and 40 crypto cards

    Let them use all the Turing chips they want. The problem is that the better CMP cards will be Ampere based. 90HX will use a 3080 chip, which could have been set aside for gaming cards. And as we know, not enough chips to satisfy both miners and gamers.

    you'll never satisfy miners even if you tripled production

    Cool, NVidia do crypto card...
    That are worse than Gaming card for mining.

    If i was a miner i know what i will get.

    If i were a millionaire i would buy up all those cards and smash them with a sledgehammer one by one to piss off miners.

    Not if they use failed yields that would not be fit for purpose in gaming cards but could still be used in mining cards

    Question is, what's the true requirement of gaming GPUs vs. mining GPUs? Able to hold a certain frequency at a certain power level?
    Because if it's "just" bad chips, they could still be cut down and sold a tier lower in a gaming card just as likely.

    Nvidia should shove these on a place the sun never shines! What a waste of silicon, specially after the mining block on the 3060 was cracked.

    .
    And what do you think the 3080 3070 and 3060ti are??? They are all failed 3090's ....binning and disabling parts of the card that are defective is part of this industry long time now... So please for the love of god do not believe the pr talk .... Hell if it is thaaaat defective they can make a 3060 supper to slot between the ti and non ti .... But if it can pull 90 mh .... IS NOT that defective.

    Attention All Miners: this is just the start!, we have two more great mining cards coming to Market Q2

    it's a damn shame, none of those chips will ever get to game. (sadface here)

    Nvidia wants that so you cant buy it second hand when all this crashes.

    I would imagine these are similar in functionality to the workstation or Quadro lineup or perhaps a better way to put it is so whatever chips NVIDIA is dedicating to these wouldn't affect Ampere productivity and what the lineup here utilizes.

    EDIT: Ampere is still limited though as everyone seemingly wants one especially the 3080's so there's never enough availability and just filling existing orders ensures any stock is extremely limited or non-existent going by what's going on around here.

    Even the 3090's sorta disappeared and with the better pricing there's little chance for the 3060's and 3070's too unless the incoming GPU shipment quantity was somehow to be greatly increased.
    (But that seems unlikely if the current demand is outstripping even manufacturing capabilities before dividing up what gets shipped where.)

    Miners don't want just 1 or 2 cards....they want all of them!, display ports or not.

    Grrrrr!

    I heard this was a false alarm - the crypto they bragged about cracking was NOT the one NVidia blocked.

    Question I asked before and not answered: How much of that 10GB VRAM is actually used by an individual mining GPU while it is actually mining Ethereum? Surely not the entire 10GB. Could they not have made them cheaper by only having something less like 2GB VRAM on each?

    Nvidias first and foremost obligation is to shareholders, not gamers. Which means max profits and ROI are the main objective. Any crypto limiting measures they claim to make are purely for PR purposes and fodder for the gullible. AMD is no different in terms of prioritizing ROI to shareholders even if that also involves giving the one finger salute to gamers.

    Heres a chart of the predicted DAG size:-

    DAG size.png
    It's DAG needs to fit in the VRAM , it currently needs 4.125 GB so any card 4GB and below does not work. They need to buy the 6GB and up cards.

    this is just going into the scrapyard after it becomes unprofitable for mining, I hope the EU fines the hell out of them

    if you want to do something about it, dont buy their new stock when it eventually shows up, go buy the miner's used cards instead, thats exactly what they are trying to prevent to maximize sales, f them

    Totally agree!...however, these so-called businessmen are stealing our entertainment worldwide!

    I never had a problem with Bitcoin until it started infringing on my entertainment life!....I hate saying it but I wish Bitcoin would crash just so I could have some entertainment in my ordinary life.
