Nvidia doesn’t believe in its ability to fix graphics card shortages anytime soon During the recent period Conversations with investors President Jensen Huang said the supply of new GPUs will be very limited, likely in the better part of 2022. Already in April in a similar tone I have spoken Colette Criss (the company’s chief financial officer), although it was still expected at the time, that supply shortages will continue at least until the end of 2021.
The shortage of graphics cards has been an issue that has practically plagued the PC market ever since the first show the new Series nvidia (And AMD) in the fall of 2020. As a result, GeForce of the RTX 3000 family expensive Significantly above Suggested prices from the manufacturer. continent getting better a little In recent months, however, models with Ampere systems remain expensive and poorly available.
Interestingly, according to Nvidia, it is difficult to blame crypto miners in this case. Colette Chris reports that more than 80% of the GeForce RTX 3000 series shipped to stores in the second fiscal quarter (May 3 – August 1) were called LHR . variables With built-in restrictions that reduce the effectiveness of these cards in mining the cryptocurrency Ethereum. This is to prove that the accessibility issues with these systems are caused by the players’ interest and not the virtual players.
The limitations of the new GeForce RTX 3000 series card variants have proven insufficient.
It is a pity that only a week ago there was information about the partial bypassing of these security measures by a hacker who is developing a program for crypto miners NBMiner (via Video Cards). Version 39.0 allows you to use about 70% of the power of the GeForcew LHR when mining virtual currencies, with only 68% recommended as a more stable option initially. according to Toms Hardware This would make the GeForce RTX 3060Ti have similar virtual coin mining performance as the GeForce RTX 2070 and Radeon RX 5600 XT. It’s a consolation I will mention About changes in the Ehtereum mining process, which in the shortest possible way will reduce power consumption by about 99.95% and thus discourage miners from using powerful GPUs.
Nvidia is not alone in predicting availability issues with its systems. Pat Gelsinger, CEO of Intel, shares the same opinion resident before the holiday He says the situation in the computer components market will not improve for a few years.
