A kind Hong Kong Productivity Council Exclusive information based on NVIDIA is taking further steps to prevent future crypto miners from buying GeForce video cards for gamers. The effort started with the latest GeForce RTX 3060 video card on the market, which halved the speed of Ethereum mining through software.
