NVIDIA and its anti-mining strategies

NVIDIA has officially announced a new family of cards specifically designed to meet the demand of miners while communicating, at the same time, that the GeForce RTX 3060 drivers will have software limitations for Ethereum mining workloads, essentially halving the theoretical maximum hashrate. that could be obtained.

The new family of products, called CMP (Crypto Mining Processor), will be released under the HX brand and will be available in four different models without any video output, specifically 30HX, 40HX, 50HX and 90HX.

But NVIDIA will not stop with a modification of the drivers, which may simply not be updated by the user, but, at least on the cards of future production, it seems willing to intervene, according to what stated by Bryan Del Rizzo (Director of Public Relations of GeForce), also on silicon and on the BIOS, which would result in a different ID for existing SKUs, perhaps even indicated on new packaging.

The problem related to the low production of video cards, however, would remain unchanged with the only advantage that it would be NVIDIA itself to decide the percentages of the models produced for gaming or mining.

Better than nothing …
