Nvidia will not limit mining performance for GeForce RTX 3070, RTX 3080 and its other previously released video cards



Yesterday Nvidia revealed its controversial decision to halve the performance of the GeForce RTX 3060 when using a GPU to mine Etherium. Ordinary users were enthusiastic about this news, but the miners, of course, are annoyed. In the context of this, there was talk that Nvidia may limit the performance in mining and its other models, supposedly this will help solve the situation with a shortage of video cards. But the company has denied these rumors.

In a comment to The Verge, an Nvidia spokesperson said, “We are not limiting the performance of the GPUs already on sale.” So those who have already acquired previously released Nvidia video cards should not worry about their farms – the performance will remain the same.

As for the Nvidia CMP 3D cards announced yesterday, intended just for mining, they should not affect the release of gaming GeForce in any way. This follows from another comment from an Nvidia representative: “the chips used for the CMP cannot meet the GeForce specifications and do not affect the total volume [производство] or GeForce availability. ” There are two ways to interpret “non-compliance with specifications”: on the one hand, we can talk about new GPUs with some differences from the already presented Ampere GPUs, on the other hand, there is a possibility that rejected GPUs are used for CMP, which are not suitable for serial GeForce, but are suitable for mining cryptocurrency. The second version is supported by the confidence of an Nvidia representative that the release of the CMP will not affect custom GeForce in any way: indeed, there will be no effect if the rejected GPUs are used in the CMP.
