The “mining” revenue is getting lower and lower, coupled with the upcoming upgrade of the classic ethereum, completely does not support GPU mining, the second-hand market is also a variety of “slag cards”, and even appeared some never released strange models.
For example, MSI’s RTX 3080 20GB, a 10,000 chartist version, has appeared on a used platform in China. This is the fourth variant of the RTX 3080 with different video memory, and by far the largest. Of course the only ones actually released were 10GB, 12GB, and a 16GB that never came out.
From the spy photos, the card is already in its official retail form, with full model number, SN number, three fans for the whole card and a huge size to occupy 3.5-4 slot positions.
The seller also showed off its mining performance, with ETHASH scores reaching 97.48MH/s without locking arithmetic power, but it’s not much use.
The card costs more than 3,000, not expensive, but if there is no special fetish or do not touch, after all, is a proper mining slag, there is no guarantee, even no official driver.
Of course, the willingness to take a chance on the slag is not a few, there are often unexpected discoveries, such as the NGA forum, a user, found in hand RTX 3090 Ti, in fact, RTX 3090 SUPER, the specifications are the same, and even GPU-Z identification are RTX 3090 Ti.
This may confirm that the RTX 3090 Ti is the last-minute name, originally intended to be called RTX 3090 SUPER.
