Finding an RTX graphics card has been a nightmare in recent months. Whenever there are new units of the 30 series, it seems that they sell out in a matter of seconds due to the interest of gamers, hoarders and cryptocurrency enthusiasts. To reassure the situation, Nvidia will make adjustments to make the RTX 3060 less attractive to the latter.
In a blog post, Nvidia explained that they will take an important step to ensure that the RTX 3060 cards’ get into the hands of gamers. What they will do is launch a driver for the RTX 3060 that will reduce its hash rate; that is, the amount of computational operations you can perform in mining.
The point of the above is that once the RTX 3060 is available on the market, it is not an attractive product for crypto enthusiasts. This will lower the demand for this product and it should be easier to keep stocks. Sadly, we don’t think this is going to stop the hoarders.
