You better off just going for the TI, if you haven't got yours. That's also going to have a mining limiter, but I don't think that's going to put off miners considering the latest developmentsIf you mean from scan, nope.
No doubt casuals etc are a factor, as we see with the next gen consoles, but the market values are being set by what the companies tell us and driven accordingly - when they announced the mining issue, all mining cards went up, what? £200+ over 24-48hrs? With the 3090's going up even more.
The new cards will still be hot ticket items, but mining cards are going to get hotter the scarcer they become.
I think you're incredibly optimistic with normalisation by summer - unless production is upped massively, of course.
I know Nvidia helped them. But it was only a matter of time before they bypassed it themselves.Last month, NVIDIA proclaimed that its new RTX 3060 GPU would detect mining workloads and automatically reduce efficiency to make the cards undesirable for miners. This announcement came ahead of word that NVIDIA would be offering headless mining-specific GPUs. It would appear that most of that has now gone out the window with today’s news that using the GeForce 470.05 driver bypasses the mining limiter on RTX 3060 cards.
The GeForce 470.05 driver is distributed to developers under the Windows Insider Program. Its ability to allow the new NVIDIA GPUs to mine Ethereum at full efficiency is yet another gut punch to PC gamers hoping to score a new graphics card this year.
