Nvidia will release a new version of the Ampere GPU

NVIDIA's attitude towards graphics card mining seems to be getting tough. In the past, it was ambiguous about mining, suggesting that it would not be suppressed. Now NVIDIA is going to play an important role, and RTX 30 series graphics cards may be upgraded to block mining performance.
Previously, we have reported that the RTX 3060 graphics card will upgrade the new GPU core ga106-302-a1. This time, it will shield the mining performance and block the hardware.
Two days ago, it was reported that the RTX 3080 Ti to be released soon would be the same. The core code of the new graphics card received by the manufacturer is ga102-202 or ga102-302, which is different from the previous QS version.
These new cores are different from the original GPU cores. They use different hardware IDs and can't brush firmware with each other, thus avoiding the possibility of driver cracking.
RTX 3060 / 3080 Ti graphics card blocking mining may be just the beginning. The latest news says that the whole series of RTX 30 graphics cards will upgrade the new core and also block mining performance. In the future, RTX 3060 Ti, RTX 3070, RTX 3070 Ti, RTX 3080, RTX 3090 and other graphics cards will replace the core.
PC players may be happy with NVIDIA's overall ban on mining. After all, after a sharp decline in mining performance, miners' enthusiasm for snapping up graphics cards will decline, making it easier for game players to buy graphics cards.
On the other hand, NVIDIA's plan to ban the mining of game cards this time is not entirely for PC players. The main reason is that NVIDIA has officially intervened in the mining card business. Its CMP HX series of mine cards will soon be on the market in large quantities. The price is not cheap, and the warranty is only three months, making more money than game cards.
NVIDIA is not worried about not being able to sell. A small amount of listing in the Q1 financial quarter has already triggered a rush to buy. It was originally scheduled to sell only US $50 million, but it sold us $150 million. With more supply, the sales will set a record again.
