The Nvidia Geforce RTX 3060 gets a new graphics circuit – that’ll kill the mining performance

There is an unprecedented shortage of graphics cards, and recently Nvidia acknowledged that the situation will continue throughout 2021. In addition to the general shortfall worldwide, higher-than-usual demand is believed to be among the enthusiasts behind the shortage, but also the players who break cryptocurrencies. Mining, It swallows up not quite a fraction of the graphics cards that find their way onto the market.

To relieve the pressure, Nvidia launched a new series of graphics cards called Cryptocurrency Mining Processor (CMP), but also through new drivers that tried to throttle the cryptocurrency mining performance on the Geforce RTX 3060. However, the last action steadily fell when Nvidia itself happened to leak Driver lift restriction.

Now Chinese reports HKEPC A more ambitious hardware-level constraint is on the way. The website cites sources from Taiwanese graphics card manufacturers, who claim that Nvidia developed a new type of GA106 graphics circuit for the Geforce RTX 3060. The circuit in use today is called GA106-300 and the new circuit is said to be called GA106- 302.

In terms of specifications, nothing should differ between the graphics circuits, but the difference is that the new Geforce RTX 3060 that comes with the GA106-302 gets a new PCI Hardware ID. The gameplay gives Nvidia the ability to completely break compatibility with older drivers, thus limiting the graphics card to newer programs with performance limitations to crack cryptocurrencies.

So far, Nvidia itself has only talked about limiting the performance of the Geforce RTX 3060 as a straightforward measure to make the graphics card less attractive. Miners. Reputable Twitter Leak Embed a Tweet He writes that it might be suitable for the new variants of the GA102, which are used in the Geforce RTX 3090 and RTX 3080, and the GA104, found in the RTX 3070 and RTX 3060 Ti.

The Nvidia Geforce RTX 3060 with GA106-302 graphics circuit is expected to be available in stores during May.
