Gigabyte Lists RTX 3060 Rev 2.0 Graphics Cards – Artificial Mining Limit FTW
Gigabyte has mentioned a array of 5 graphics cards in the RTX 3060 loved ones sporting a new revision. Rev 2. of beforehand-unveiled Gigabyte graphics cards include the RTX 3060 Gaming OC 12G, RTX 3060 EAGLE 12G, RTX 3060 EAGLE OC 12G, RTX 360 Vision OC 12G, and RTX 3060 ELITE OC. The new graphics playing cards are part of NVIDIA’s second-wave endeavor at curbing cryptocurrency mining on their RTX graphics playing cards by integration of a driver check that enables these graphics playing cards to actually operate (meaning that only drivers which integrate the mining limiter will help these graphics cards to do the job).
It appears that producers will be differentiating their pre and put up-limiter graphics playing cards with a suffix that isn’t really normalized (GALAX utilizes LHR for Lite/Lower Hash Charge), and Gigabyte right here is noticed making use of a very simple Rev two.. It stays to be noticed no matter whether or not any packaging dissimilarities will make distinct particularly which revision of a graphics card we’re having, but NVIDIA themselves apparently would like for that particular difference to not be apparent, so as to discourage any would-be miners from getting any graphics cards from the channels that usually are not particularly mining-oriented (go through, NVIDIA’s CMP [Cryptocurrency Mining Processor] accelerators).
