    It doesn't matter. People know that there's a shortage, so a select group will buy ALL of these cards and throw them onto eBay to make a profit. Greed is greed.

    While it's good to see something being done doesn't limiting the hash rate simply move the time to break even/profit window, for example instead of a GPU taking 6 months to pay for itself it will now take 12.

    Still disagree with LHR, what about gamers like me that offset the cost of the card and mine when they aren't gaming, having 1 GPU in your system shouldn't trigger a slowdown, if the card detects more of its ilk in a system then its fair to assume its a mining rig and hash rate is reduced, but to blanket reduce hash rate on cards, and in some cases without anything being shown in the documentation or on the box, is just wrong IMHO...

    in what universe does LHR "keep 3060s on shelves"? Looks like Hexus has been ordered to write that

    Hexus say there is some hope it will keep 3060s on shelves, but we will see. Which sounds completely accurate - many of us do indeed hope it has a positive effect on availability, and we will see

    Slapping a light hash rate on these isn't going to change anything.
    Scalpers will still get them.
    They will still be sold at an extreamly high price, both with scalpers nad through normal e-tailers.
    Stock will still be almost non existant while seemingly managing to find thier way into nearly all of the e-tailers pre-built systems.

    Yup, sell other old crappy components with a decent GPU knowing people will buy it for the GPU, win win

    I absolutely get the point you're making about the offset costs for the gamers that use that as their upgrade path, really all it is doing is extending the time until the cost has been offset, not negating it completely. Really while the attempt to put off miners is an interesting choice, all it really does it add in yet another subset of cards that miners can actually use.

    3060 LHR - 3060 - 3060Ti LHR - 3060Ti etc etc.

    How is that even remotely going to slow down how many cards are bought by miners. It definitely doesn't even address that scalpers who are using the limited quantities to push up prices and make profits. Heck I'd love to add a second 3090 FE to my system "just because" I've always wanted an SLI capable PC, chances of Scan allowing me to purchase one though are slim to none.
