    Wondering if the miners will consider this? Shorter warranty and no value when crypto crushes.

    • +3 votes

      I'd say only if desperate. They will want to recover most of their initial cost when it comes time to move on. Which they can't with this card.

      That's what happened last time.

      This product is lip service to the gamers requests to address the current issues.

      This is absolute trash for mining. Nobody will buy this and this has almost zero resale value

        You're right, they should remove the hash rate from gaming cards and maybe then the miners will use it when there will be literally no other option like they're doing to gamers. No one sympathises with miners.

          remove the hash rate from gaming cards

          Lmao or they can properly manage their production line and have enough cards for everyone.

      •  

        makes no sense even a 3060 with resale value would hash about the same even with the limiter (and twice as fast with the leaked driver)

    •  

      They cracked the 3060 in about 2 weeks.
      So why buy the version with zero resale value?

    The entry-level CMP 30HX mining card features an Ethereum hash rate of 26 MH/s and a TDP of 125 W

    My 2070 does 40mh/s @ 125w and cost less that this ($600). I'm struggling to see how this will help.

      hmm yea, my old RX480 gets 28.3 MH/s @ 95w, does not sound like a very appealing card

      •  

        RX470/480/570/580 etc do not report the correct power draw though… +30W or so on to what it tells you.

    •  

      Was your 2070 used? Not sure where you got a 2070 for $600 unless it was pre-mining boom, they seem to be going for $1000+ at most places.

      • +1 vote

        Pretty much pre-mining boom, no way you can obtain 2070 for $600 now and Jensen is ready to grab the margin swallowed by GPU manufacturers

    •  

      Should be able to tweak that a bit, 42/43 for 100w on 2070 .. 125w is up where the 2070 Super are for basically the same hash as the older 2070.

      •  

        can you PM me you settings, I'm +1000mem and power @70%, -80 clock. it doesnt seem to budge from there in trex

        •  

          I actually used Nicehash QM for tweaking as it can automate testing multiple things once you've set up absolute for memory so process only took a few mins. I ended up with 1005MHz core, 706mV Core, 7800MHz ram. It will run higher on ram but will restart itself a few times a day if I do. Fans running between 20% keeps GPU 58C and Vram 72, but case has good airflow. Yes this one is in full case not mining rack. That gives me 99-101w power and 42-43MH/s.

    •  

      My son's 2060 Super does around the same and I got that for $430 just under a year ago. At the time people were saying it was poor value and I should have waited for the 3000 series lol. That advice did not age well :)

    • -1 vote

      They're halving the hash rate of all current 30 series cards via a limiter, and they'll be doing it for all GPUs going forward. Existing cards aren't affected, but the cards they sell from now on will operate at 50% hash rates, eg. 3070 is 25 MH/s at stock.

      Miners are going to be scrapping for the used markets and bottom of the barrel binnings for the TU116, TU106, TU102, GA102 and GA100 that wouldn't be used for other purposes.

      That leaves room for consumers, the scientific community and data centres to actually make decent use of these products for the betterment of society.

      You can technically game on a miner's card but it requires a modified driver and integrated graphics using a hacky solution. Can be had at a real bargain during a mining bust though

        That's a super old video thats not relevant to the current generation of CMP video cards.

        You would also not be able to use the latest generation drivers since with every new release of the driver, you'd be relying on some other brainy person to do the driver hacking to enable it to work with a CMP video card.

        It would be difficult to distribute without getting sued too, since laws would prevent a person from reverse engineering Nvidia's software and distributing online.

        •  

          Good point, it relies on someone with know-how and willingness to share. You're also having to get it from random sources (from the video he got it from some guy in the LTT forums) which is a security risk. So as I said you can technically game on miner's card but it's not a good solution

            @FireRunner: You would also be limited in what games you can actually play.

        It doesn't have any monitor output.

      Useful for multi-GPU scientific setups/servers/supercomputers.

      Not everyone can afford to be at the cutting edge.

      •  

        Apparently this GPU is comparable to a GTX1660 Super.
        Not good value at $800

        •  

          Yes it's a TU116, but that's a problem for the miners, not for people in charge or purchasing at labs. If they're smart, they'll be targetting cards for their needs in specialised used markets down the line.

          No, I'm not suggesting that labs go and buy off eBay, but that there will be bulk purchasing agreements that can be made with professional organisations to take on their stock when crypto valuations drop or returns from the cards tank.

          No one other than professional miners should be buying these cards at these prices.

      • +1 vote

        Anyone using a card like this for that sort of purpose will be laughed out of the room when you can get significantly more performance per watt and $ using even a 3070 at scalper prices…

        •  

          Again, miners will buy the card first, but these cards won't hold their value forever, and that's when some organisations may look to buy them in large batches from reputable organisations.

          That's how you solve the e-waste issue, but I suspect there won't be many TU116 produced this way to begin with. Thankfully, it's the only model lacking tensor cores.

          •  

            @jasswolf: Sorry to be argumentative, but I don't see miners buying these at all unless it becomes nearly impossible to buy normal GPUs. Industrial miners have no issues buying thousands of GPUs, sometimes from unscrupulous vendors, sometimes straight from system integrators or board partners.

            I don't see any value in this. They are expensive, they don't produce good performance per watt overall, they don't idle… There are miner-specific cards that are viable and worth buying, but nobody but industrial miners will get access to those.

            By the time these cards are worth buying price-to-performance-wise, there will long since be much more efficient cards available and these will be thrown straight into landfill. It's a waste.

            •  

              @Zorlin: Did you miss the part where every Ampere chip is going to be using an ETH limiter going forward?

              They're reissuing a new SKU for everything, and the new driver is already out.

          •  

            @jasswolf: I disagree also, miners are not touching this card, it needs to be $400 to have any chance.

    Sets an interesting precedent for the updated 3070… on hash rate alone (25 MH/s stock), it won't go for much more than this price if at all.

    I welcome the shake-up, and forcing miners into the bin in a scramble. They're the most economically useless phenomenon I've ever seen.

  • +2 votes

    This shouldn't be encouraged. The world's semiconductor shortage is bad enough without shit like this. It's still taking good chips away from gaming GPUs that could have been made.

    •  

      It's not encouraged. It's literally NVIDIA repurposing old stock at old fabs and discouraging miners from buying up stock that is useful for home users and scientific work.

      NVIDIA can't set laws, this is their solution to an absolute scourge. Most of the mining models are Turing cards, not Ampere. The only gaming Ampere model used is from the same chip family as the 3080, but it's so low in performance the chips didn't make it into the 3080 pile.

      •  

        Probably would have been better to release more standard Turing cards

        •  

          They're still going into laptops and the odd desktop sale.

          I'd assume these are all bottom of the barrel binnings that would otherwise be on the scrapheap. They've lowered the bar, and given it to miners.

    I bought a 6800xt for gaming and mining in my off-time. In the last 3 months alone with the ETH price going the way it is, it's almost paid for itself.
    This card is half the price of what I paid and almost 1/3 the mining rate! absolutely insane.
    When ETH eventually goes to PoS, I can still game.. I feel sorry for anyone who buys this card because at the end of this craze, this card is basically uselsss.

        Honestly you'd be better off with a 3080 for a similar price. Better ray tracing and better mining speeds as well. I went AMD for the sake of consistency and to use SAM, but that made bugger all difference.

          I meant more that you were able to pay for it. My last card cost $150 or so and last year I was looking at getting an "expensive" $500 card. The new pricing is hard to accept and now that I am on centrelink payments pretty hard to even consider. Your three months gives me hope. :)

          Gold rush is a generous term… Gold had and has an economic purpose.

          This is like kids starting a market to trade sections of the atmosphere without being allowed to own the air or any particulate matter, and everyone mining and trading being delusional enough to think that's could be useful and enforceable.

          If this stuff gets further legitimised, it is just history on repeat, with seldom few different actors, and far too many unscrupulous ones. Crypto is the tragedy of the commons manifesting itself once more, except the common good being selfishly destroyed is the planet we live on.

            @jasswolf: Crypto has plenty of economic purpose, you just don't like the economic purpose it has.

            And as much as you love or hate it, crypto isn't going away any time soon. I just hope the environmental impacts can be improved.

            • -2 votes

              @Zorlin: If I don't assign it a monetary value, what else can I do with a cryptocurrency? Nothing of economic value.

              Combine that with it being decentralised, and thus the risk of exploitation being a total upheaval of its value if no one of enormously wealthy means is watching (or cares), it's completely pointless. It's an additional layering of the financial system that merely serves to confuse and gum up the works.

              Crypto should not be the future of anything but financial textbooks and retrospective analysis, and I certainly hope that comes with a tale of how the the poor were bailed out of this madness and those who can pass a means test were left to ruminate on the consequences of trying to scam the poor.

      Quite a lot actually. A 3070 is worth about $13 profit per day presently. That said the actual cash was just in buying the cards in the first place then selling them for their current prices!

      Lol it does not crash at all at that level, crashes if you push the ram higher. However yes that's fine, the fan runs at 20% during the day, actually running at 0% at the moment because night and the case is pulling in cold air from outside. With the voltage and subsequent power so low it doesn't produce much heat, less than when gaming.
