Due to a combination of a number of historic events in the past year, the hardware world has entered a whirlwind of lack of inventory and manufacturing capabilities in the face of record demand from users and manufacturers of such and such products.
Thus, we find ourselves today facing the largest historical difference between recommended prices of graphic cards And their actual prices, when it is usually between 2 and 3 times the difference between these two amounts.
Gaming cards for gaming today, as in the past, are mainly used for mining digital currencies such as Etherium (ETH currency). In a blog post released today, Announces NVIDIA Because all its graphics cards which are manufactured from today onwards are series GeForce RTX The 30 variables will get a half-decrease in ETH mining speed. This is a hardware limitation that may deal with software overruns that have been performed so far to allow this.
One model that does not appear among these video cards is the prestigious GeForce RTX 3090, which may remain prestigious. There may be a "if" mantra Gamers Can not afford, maybe miners can afford "about him.
We do not expect to get up tomorrow morning and see the prices of these new video cards reach their rightful price, as it is important to remember that local merchandise has been purchased at high prices, and also that new inventory with the same low-capacity graphics cores will arrive in line graphic cards To shelves only in a few weeks. It is also important to remember that there are other digital currencies that miners use with graphic cards, So that they may maintain their high price or lose only a small part of it.
You will find the reduced speed graphics cards as having an additional LHR or Limited Hash Rate. The various hardware manufacturers are expected to add these letters to the model, or launch models with slightly different names to emphasize that this is an LHR card.
Waiting to see what the market will look like in the near future as a result of this announcement of NVIDIA, Mentioning that its new graphics cards, which will be launched next month, are also expected to receive hardware blockages for ETH mining.
