Wonder what its hashrate will be? As of right now. Nicehash says those 6,144 A100 GPU in Phase 1 will bring in $71,636.42 per day. That's after figuring in $0.10 per kWh.
A100's cost about $10,000 at retail. Giving a bulk discount and say they pay $50 million for those cards, it's going to be 2 years before they break even. If you factor in the cost of the rest of the parts in those servers and rack space and the necessary air conditioning, you're never going to break even within the service life of those cards even while making $71k a day.

OK, but I wonder what has all these power guzzling computers done for society?? Do they generate income?? At thee very least, crypto mining can generate income for the user. If these computers suck so much power but does nothing, then they are even worse than crypto mining and should be banned.
