Previously, NVIDIA halved the hashrate of GeForce RTX 3060 graphics cards. AMD will allow users to dispose of computing power at their discretion
AMD Product Manager Nish Nilalojanan has confirmed that the company will not limit the processing power for mining cryptocurrency in its graphics cards, PC Gamer reported. According to him, 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 options are not best suited 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 to halve the hashrate of GeForce RTX 3060 video cards in order to reduce the demand for them among miners. Soon, the company accidentally lifted this limitation by releasing yet another GPU driver.
In the future, AMD plans to release its 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.
