Looking good Boozy. What CPU do you have?
i9900K (I think!) thanks TTN, does it look about right numbers wise?

Seems to be in the right ballpark for a 3080 I reckon.

Nvidia have restricted cryptomining capability of the new RTX 3060 to try and keep them out of their greedy hands and allow at least a few to be used for gaming.

Surprised its taken this long for either Nvidia or AMD to capitalise on it by bringing out a "mining card".

People framing this as Nvidia "thinking of the poor gamers" are missing the mark I think. There will be competition for silicon between the mining variant cards and the regular ones, and it's not as if miners are going to stop trying to buy the "gamer" cards even if its suboptimal, if it pays off their outlay in a reasonable period of time.

They had a dedicated mining cards before with the P104 & P106 which was a cut down GTX 1060 (p106) & GTX 1080 (P104)

Before someone puts a mildly modified 3060 Ti driver onto a 3060 and mines away.

They've also just launched a new mining card range, the CMP HX https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/cmp/ Suspicion is these are lower-binned chips that wouldn't cut it at stock frequencies for gaming GPUs, but which can be clocked down and still chuck out decent hash rates.

Plus, many of the datacentre HPC/AI/ML cards like the A100 have been put to use in mining rigs. They are the same GPUs as consumer cards but with no outputs, and usually a lot more memory.

I got a 5500XT 8GB from eBuyer around Black Friday last year for £175. Just looked on eBay - the prices are bonkers!
So partly thinking "this will be a laugh" (meaning I didn't think I'd even get buttons for it), I just searched eBay to get some idea of what my old Sapphire Radeon R9 390 OC card might be worth. Apparently I could probably get more than I paid for it over five years ago spin

The situation really is bad. I’m starting to think this semiconductor shortage will have much greater repercussions.

With a bit of patience I reckon I could flip my 3090FE for close on a grand's profit. Beats any other investment I've ever made into a cocked hat.

It's crazy. I could sell my RTX2080 for more than I paid for it new if some of these are anything to go by.

But then what would you buy to replace it?

That's the problem.

That's only one of the reasons that it's staying firmly where it is biggrin

I finally got my 3070 installed today. Currently earning its supper by mining at about 61 MH/s. It'll have to do that for a while, it owes me a lot!

I think I let my R9 280x go a bit cheap. Got an offer at £67 on ebay and thought let's not be greedy and get this over with.

Then let my RX 580 8GB (bought for £160 in dec as an interim replacement), run it's course on ebay and got £310 for it.
