What will happen to the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti in games after a year and a half of mining? Comparison with the new card shows the difference



Now, against the backdrop of another mining boom, it is becoming more and more difficult to buy a new video card. But the market for used adapters has also changed: there are fewer offers and prices have increased.

But the time will come when thousands of video cards that have been mining for a year, two or more will get to various ad platforms. Of course, buying such an adapter is relatively risky, since it is difficult to say how long it will live on. But is this the only problem?

In the video below, you can see how the performance of the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti was affected by a year and a half of mining.

As you can see, there is a difference, and it is relatively significant. Of course, there is no catastrophic fall, but the buyer of such a card will lose 5-10%. It can also be noted that the old adapter heats up much more, but we can assume that this is due to the fact that it needs to replace the thermal paste for a long time.

As for the performance difference, it is due to the lower GPU frequency. Unfortunately, the video does not answer the question of whether this can be leveled by overclocking, but in any case, the difference is not so great as to somehow get very upset.
