Nvidia thinks they can pull a fast one on gamers looking to grab an RTX 3060, but we know you're smarter than that - Let's dig deeper and see if we can figure out why they're launching cryptocurrency mining cards...

      You should say Nvidia and Miners do not care about gamers nor the environment. These crypto goons proclaim their beloved currency as the path forward when all its achieved so far is a disruption of an entire industry that was never built by them. These lazy do nothing miners continue racking up the demand on electrical grids which are still mostly powered through fossil fuels they don't make new jobs on any meaningful scale so its not feeding families more than it is filling a greedy miners e-wallet. Scalpers are a problem for sure but if the demand wasn't already taxed enough as is Miners sure as fuck play a big role in perpetuating the problem which only works to serve scalpers. Nvidia, AMD, Miners, & Scalpers are the winners here, while the consumer and environment is fucked. Linus stop simping for crypto miner bullshit while placing ALL the burden on gamers to act in environmentally friendly.

    The company is not its people but its owners. Usually the shareholders push shitty strategy on the board and the board pushes it on the ceo cfo and they push it down, thats just how it is. Looking from shareholder view, when you invest to dividend paying shares, what would you invest for? For money or for the betterment of the company and the betterment of the buyers? (And dont give me the bullshit economist answer "uuuh it depends". We both know you would want money.) Thats just how capitalism works, money moves the world.

    Wow at the bitcoin "energy consumption" article mention. I guess playing video games doesn't consume any electricity. The development of them... the streaming of them... the watching of them... the playing of them. Bitcoin mining is what keeps the coin functional. Without mining it's worthless. Yes it's to "make a buck". But it's integral to the infrastructure of the currency. Cryptocurrency is bringing money back into the control of the non-elite. It's a big deal... not just to make a 'buck'. I guess it's all good you just let your government print money and dictate how much worth your fiat is... hey, you can just play minecraft and overwatch all day to forget the pain.

    Gaming GPUs used for mining usually will FAIL in VRAM overclocking attempts later in their "gamer" lifecycle. U can make a test in MSI afterburner with your GPU by slightly changing the VRAM frequency up and the GPU will crash if it was used for mining.

    Why isn't anyone saying the right thing? Honestly, as someone who thinks bitcoin is fucking stupid and wishes it would go away, this deeply pisses me off. Computer vendors should never make value judgements about the commands that users give to hardware. It crosses a really disturbing line. I like PCs because it's MY hardware that I can do anything I want with. Stop trying to turn computers into a Nintendo 64. I don't want some locked down piece of shit where some vendor arbitrarily restricted what I can do with the chunk of crap I PAID FOR. Personal computer. Personal. Mine. Not Nvidia's. What really terrifies me is that this pathetic generation of lightweights--the same ones that bought fucking Oblivion horse armor and normalized turning video games into a casino industry--will tolerate bullshit like this until it becomes normalized and even expected. They're slowly chipping away at my hobby. Don't piss me off.

    I suspect if one were to check stats from something like steam about what hardware most people have, they'd find that the best target for developers, to ensure players aren't shut out from purchasing their game by their hardware, is to aim no where near the capabilities of these cards or even recent many-core CPUs. Reality is these cards/CPUs are bought by gamers to run benchmarks or to lord about frame rates they can't even perceive (unless possibly running in VR or overly high res screens). It's kinda a problem for researchers who would genuinely benefit from access to these GPUs or CPUs, who will write applications that genuinely use them. I know people who've had to compromise and buy lower spec cards for AI vision research because of the demand by cryptominers and gamers making the stuff they want unavailable.

    One day, it will simply become more profitable for video card manufacturers to mine on their own new cards than to sell them at all. They simply monopolize the instrument of mining industry. And for the gaming market, they will simply release obsolete stones and soldered stones that have been in mining. In addition, serious conflicts are brewing in the world and soon there will be no time for games as before.

    But they also locking their gaming GPUs to be bad for mining. It's been a problem for years that miners have raised the prices of normal GPUs like crazy. The second hand market for GPUs used for mining has never been prevalent because people don't want GPUs that have been used in that way, whether it's a GPU or a CMP. This should lower prices for new gaming GPUs which will in turn lower prices for resell gaming GPUs, whilst keeping CMPs in its own separate market that doesn't mess with the prices of their models made for gaming. Even if there can be work arounds for both processors to work on unintended jobs, wouldn't you say it's a good thing they they are still trying to work on the technology to force this degree of separation? If I'm wrong then I'm wrong but you need to talk about that aspect too by either confirming or debunking the credibility of that claim that Nvidia are making, which this video hasn't covered at all.

    the reason why miners wont buy the cmp is once the bitcoin crashes, the miners can just renew the geoforce cards and sell em online and get some extra money, and story is going to be completely different because no one is going to buy a card that's specifically for mining especially after bitcoin drops

    Nobody talk's about the 3 R's anymore, It's what I was taught as I grew up, The only mentioned these days is "Green" and usually it's very deceptive, For example electric cars are charged off power grids that always use Oil product generated energy and they take batteries and rare earth metals that require oil products use to run equipment again to mine them and the batteries have to be replaced and deposed of in time. Green products generally are not as green as they claim.
