Others are listed as 'coming soon'. It's not just Bitmain. PC gamers are struggling to get new Nvidia chips. The company's powerful GPUs like the GeForce RTX 3080, RTX 3070, and RTX 3060 Ti are unfortunately too efficient for gamers to mine cryptocurrencies (especially Ethereum). In May, Nvidia announced that it would reduce the hash power in these units. Next, it announced its own purpose-built Ethereum miner, the CMP or Crypto Mining Processor. Late last month, Quartz reported that the global shortage of Nvidia chips had increased resale prices by up to 300%. While the crypto market is no stranger to volatility – today is a particularly bad day, prices are down nearly 5% – fiery demand is on the rise.
