    160MHs, for over 4k, you can do more than that with a pair of 3080's for less than £1400, who are they expecting will really buy this thing...

    If you're looking at ROI, the power target coupled with the hashrate is probably what makes it attractive - 3080s are rated at 320W each.

    Good luck grabbing a pair of 3080s for less than £1400, too. FE drops are few and far between and one per household policies seem to be a thing all over, so you'll have to jump through a few hoops to grab a second one, in the unlikely event you can find another.

    I said it when they released the limited cards, this was a likelihood.



    Nvidia are shady as......

    You can't buy 3080's for less then £700.

    These are designed for purpose which means they are more efficient, they are designed to be rack mounted in a data centre style setup, they are designed to run flat out 24-7, and you can bulk order 100's of them. Would be a no brainer to a professional setup.

    Yeah, stocks always an issue at the mo, and I have an FE card so that's what my comment was based on, also, I'm pulling less than 320w on my 3080 with -500/+1050/65% powerlimit for low to mid 90's on the MHs scale..

    I must have been lucky then to get a 3080FE for £649..

    At this point i think Nvidia's MSRP was nothing more than a fantasy, bait and switch, loss leader or whatever you want to call it. Yes you can still buy a graphics card directly from them for that price but those are few and far between and IMO are only a thing so they can keep up the pre-tense that the launch MSRP is still a thing and that they've not jacked up the prices they're changing AIB's massively. (AIB's being charged far more than initial prices is something I've picked up from off hand comments from various sources).

    A pair of non-LHR 3080s, maybe. With the nerf it's more like 50mh/s per 3080, so you're looking at 3 of them to produce 150mh/s and somewhere near 700w.

    would be a good deal on the power target, also a possible way of making gamer cards less attractive, as competetion for the bigger companies... sooner or later the bubble will burst, and with the lack of power driving the prices up, it is not so attractive to have loads of powerhungry GFX cards around.

    More of this, please, with lower price-finally there is something for miners that doesn't work for gamers.

    Such a "short sighted" thing to be doing. Aren't we supposed to be using as little energy as possible to reduce the rate at which this little ole planet we live on from warming up too much?
    I, for one, think any crypto mining is a waste of electrons.

    I don't disagree but good luck legislating to prevent or restrict it, democracies take ages to do anything, dictatorships like China tend to get things done quickly but there's a few downsides to them and I'm not sure how much of an effect China's ban on crypto has had (i would guess people still mine in China).

    I want to find a way to game on this. Just so miners complain about those awful gamers buying their cards.
