Do you think the RTX 3060 fiasco taught NVIDIA a lesson? Nothing sure!
At the time of the RTX 3060 launch, NVIDIA had revealed a lot about the card’s mining capability clamping device. At the time, a general refresh of some of the predecessor RTX 3000 range was rolled out with newer versions with a mechanism similar to the RTX 3060. Alas, the anti-crypto barrier of this one did not take a long time to collapse. , A pilot’s publication, was “sabotaged” by the company directly after the “accidental” … logically, the hypothesis of the new RTX 3000 in front of what might qualify the frontman as a prejudice was a bit forgotten. ; Here it comes back.
According to information provided by HKEPC, NVIDIA wants to give itself a second chance. Their plan: reload the RTX 3000 armed with various GPUs. HKEPC allegedly obtained this information from a graphics card manufacturer whose identity is hidden. This time, security will actually be implemented at the GPU level. Reckless, NVDIA will return to charge with the RTX 3060 with the GA106-302 GPU next May.
Now available BAR is available for all RTX 3000
Not only RTX 3060, but also RTX 3070, RTX 3080 and RTX 3090
On Twitter, Kopite7kimi, which is generally familiar with NVIDIA’s plans, said the refresh would not be limited to the RTX 3060, but could also include the GeForce RTX 3090, RTX 3080 and RTX 3070.

GeForce is designed for gaming, CMP mine is built
As you read these lines, many of you may be thinking: “This is it, NVIDIA is reminding us of the brunt of its false crusade against the mining of Kratpo, while in facts, Company B isI amThe content of selling these GPUs, regardless of whether they fall into the hands of minors or gamers, ”. In fact, according to our partners at Tom’s Hardware US, NVIDIA made between $ 100 and $ 300 million in the fourth quarter of 2020 for miners from GPU sales.
Now, we can still speculate that the proof of “GeForce RTX to gamers” has been prepared by NVIDIA in the form «GeForce is built for gaming, CMP mine is built» It is not just marketing.
Of course, the company has everything to achieve both ways. However, the implementation of ray tracing functionality on RTX is the result of many years of long and expensive work. Therefore, in the long term, NVIDIA may be interested in separating its GPU lines. On the one hand, cards designed specifically for minors are deprived of certain techniques that are useless for this type of activity; On the other, cards for players. If with the RTX 3060, the firm has shown, perhaps, opportunism by hastily tampering with a pseudo-anti-crypto border, it doesn’t rule out the fictional GPU Ampere lands in a few weeks with a more successful security system.
