New NVIDIA GeForce RTX 360: The Anti-mining solution?

By carloauria1 | CryptoDash | 10 Mar 2021


What solution has Nvidia adopted to counter the crazy purchases of miners?

 

Continuing in the wake of NVIDIA's announcement to counter mining, we finally learn some details on what will happen to the world of video cards after the introduction of the hashrate throttling algorithm on the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 arriving later this month.

In addition to announcing the new CMP (Crypto Mining Processor) GPUs, NVIDIA has announced that the new 3060 will implement a mining potential limitation algorithm at launch, through what was thought to be a simple change on the card drivers.

According to a Twitter post by NVIDIA Director of Public Relations Brian Del Rizzo, that's not the case at all. It is a synergistic collaboration between the driver, the graphics processor and the BIOS of the video card which, together, are able to prevent the removal of the block.

But that's not all. In fact, it was thought that the block would only be valid on Windows but as we can guess, the largest miners use custom Linux distributions, designed exclusively for mining. The interesting aspect of the story comes right here. Although Linux is an open source system in fact, the same is not true for the NVIDIA drivers which will therefore always be under the aegis of the same company.

Finally, according to what emerged on the net, it seems that this new technology will also be applied to the next batches of the RTX 3060 Ti, 3070, 3080 and 3090 which will therefore have a new identification code and pre-installed anti-crypto software. This change of direction will not take place for units already in circulation, which very likely will not receive this limitation as the game is not worth the candle. In fact, if they received it, it would be sufficient not to update the drivers or update the new BIOS to continue exploiting its computational potential in this sense.
