Previously, NVIDIA halved the hashrate of GeForce RTX 3060 graphics cards. AMD will allow users to use the computing power at their discretion
AMD Product Manager Nish Nilalojanan has confirmed that the company will not limit the computing power for mining cryptocurrency in its graphics cards. Users themselves can dispose of the computing power of the new graphics processor Radeon RX 6700 XT. But the most productive graphics card will be when used for games, notes Nilalojanan.
The device is built with Infinity Cache technology, which minimizes bandwidth limitations of the video memory subsystem, reduces latency and reduces power consumption. An AMD spokesperson argues that these parameters are not the best for mining cryptocurrencies, as they are designed to maximize performance in video games. Nilalojanan added that the Radeon RX 6700 XT can be used for mining, but the GPU may not be “ideal” for that.
Previously, NVIDIA decided reduce halving the hashrate of GeForce RTX 3060 video cards to reduce the demand for them among miners. Soon the company accidentally took off this limitation by releasing the next driver for the GPU.
In the future, AMD plans to release own line of graphics cards for Ethereum mining. The GPU will be released without VCN and DCN technologies, making it impossible to stream video to the display. This makes the graphics card useless for gamers and more efficient for computing.
