Nvidia really needs to refresh its entire Ampere graphics card lineup


Earlier this week, Nvidia announced that it’s going to be limiting the cryptocurrency mining performance of the RTX 3060 in a bid to diminish miners’ demand for the upcoming graphics card. It remains to be seen just how effective this is going to be, but it’s a step in the right direction, and Nvidia really needs to take it further. 

A pre-embargo Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 has reportedly emerged, as spotted by Tom’s Hardware, that suggests that Nvidia’s limits perhaps didn’t go far enough, but I can’t say how well the graphics card will perform in any workload until I can get my hands on it for testing. 

But even if Nvidia’s limits aren’t quite as restrictive on crypto mining performance as they should be, anything that can help people get their hands on a new graphics card without having to pay extortionate aftermarket mark-ups is a good decision in my eyes. I just want to see Nvidia take it even further.
