With the emergence and widespread of crypto mining, it has been known for a long time that there is a problem with the stock of high-end graphics cards . The recent chip crisis has also gotten into trouble. Nvidia has finally started doing something for this situation.
Nvidia Trying to Stop Crypto Miners
Earlier this year, Nvidia announced that the GeForce RTX 3060 graphics cards would be released with a “low Ethereum hash rate” . So he announced that it would make crypto mining less useful . Now it is preparing to do this to other graphics cards from the RTX 3000 series.
Nvidia said it will launch RTX 3080, RTX 3070 and RTX 3060 Ti models with LHR , that is, low Ethereum hash rate , from the end of May 2021 . The main goal here is of course to prevent crypto miners from purchasing . Although this does not completely solve the stock problem, it may help a few more people to purchase graphics cards. Let us remind you that crypto miners can also overcome this situation.
