Recently, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 series graphics processors announced. The cards didn’t even released yet but gamers started to decorate their dreams with them. It seems that it’s not just the players who keep an eye on the cards. People who make Crypto Mining may leave gamers without NVIDIA RTX 3080. The performance of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 has caused cryptocurrency miners to focus on these cards as well. This shows that finding those cards in the market can be quite tricky. News from China also supports this view.
NVIDIA can’t keep up with demand
NVIDIA has already been working hard to meet the intense demand. It claimed that the company could not stock enough due to some production problems within the company. On the other hand, the situation is not limited to this. Crypto miners also have their eyes on these cards. Although the crypto mining craze in the past has been partially left behind, NVIDIA’s Turing-architecture cards such as RTX 2060 have been used in crypto mining operations in China. According to rumours on the internet, gamers are not the only ones who show interest to the RTX 3080, thanks to its mining capacity. Since the card has an outstanding price-performance level, GPU-mined cryptocurrencies such as Ethereum seem perfect for these cards.
Crypto Mining With NVIDIA RTX 3080
According to a miner, the RTX 3080 provides 3-4 times the hash rate compared to the RTX 2080. This is reasonably close at the time of release. In the RTX 2080, this period was a few years. Of course, these are not the only cards that can be used. There are also cards like the Radeon VII or the cheaper AMD graphics cards. According to crypto forums, some users are also waiting for new RTX 3080 to release, with the hope that companies will campaign for Turing-architecture cards that remain in their hands.
