Nvidia says it will slash the cryptocurrency-mining abilities of newly made RTX 3080, RTX 3070, and RTX 3060 Ti graphics cards. It remains to be see if prices will come back to MSRP or lower. 466.47 WHQL or better is required to support the new device ID in the upcoming cards.
Those cards will be marked as LHR, or Lite Hash Rate, to indicate their capabilities have been limited, and will ship from the end of this month
It remains to be seen if the supply of video cards returns to local vendors or not, there have not been any cards available for a very long time. Many gamers are very cynical now over the nonsense of the bitcoin bubble.
