What a disaster would be if true...
Ethereum Miners Eye NVIDIA’s RTX 30 Series GPU as RTX 3080 Offers 3-4x Better Performance in Eth
They don't have drivers to use the cards, so how can they be testing them on Ethereum
I hope its fake. But reviewers should be having the cards and drivers by now if NDA lifts on 14th.
Reviewers get a special portal login to obtain drivers.
My bet is that one of the Chinese reviewers has close contact with some of the miners and leaked to them the Mh/s figures. Very easy to do. Again it may be just fake news. Because ultimately I dont think Nvidia are worried since they know the mining market very well and that ASICs covering most of it would probably be more cost effective and efficient.
Ethereum is asic proof.
Is it? Oh sh!t .. still cant believe Nvidia releasing Ampere without being aware of the mining aspect and its impact on the gaming market. Do they want everyone to be on consoles?
OK, although I dont care for this guys personal opinions, he may have an interesting bit of info here re 3080 FE availability.
synopsis: that the cost of the cards is higher than Nvidia is comfortable with due to the new cooler design (which according to Igors Lab is thought to be around $150). Therefore Nvidia have not bought many of these coolers so the FE models may be in short supply. This according to one of his "sources". And that Nvidia are relying on AIBs for the bulk of their sales, which will use cheaper coolers but selling at higher prices than the FE. End result? Nvidia gets better margins this way than if they sold the FE @ $700.

Nvidia Buys SoftBank’s Arm for $40 Billion in Biggest Chip Deal
crap, now I see why AMD canceled the 80cu big Navi. Can't compete with this.
