These cards are pointless. They have 0 like ZERO re-sell value. They are like 6 months to late as they will hardly be profitable as ETH goes PoS soon. It's much better option to buy the ETH directly for the super much to high price of this card.

Unless the CMP cards cost 50% of their GeForce counterparts, NVidia can go fuсk 'emselves. They have no resale value, and only 3 month warranty because of failure rates. Ya. Not happening. No miner is going to buy that shіt

No miner will get near that thing unless it is a lot cheaper than regular GPUs in HR per watt.
It is worthless for anything but mining, meaning worth a lot less as an investment.

Miners aren't going to buy these over standard video cards if the price per hash rate isn't competitive.
When it becomes retail available miners will absolutely buy it or they won't mine. 100% of a card you can buy right here, right now shipped to you in two days, is better than 70% of a card that's out of stock and been out of stock for 6 or more months and will remain that way for who knows how long.

As far as the chips themselves went, selling them off inside mining cards is certainly going to be more profitable than selling them off as keychains and paperweights sealed in acrylite.

Would've loved to have one of those - If only they still did that.

the link is limited to PCIe 1.1 x4 (!), thus offering only 250 MB/s bandwidth across the PCIe bus
PCIe 1.1 x1 gives 250MB/s, but x4 gives 1GB/s. Not saying that's a lot or anything, but that's a typo.

Either it's PCIe 1.1 x1 with 250MB/s, or it's PCIe 1.1 x4 with 1GB/s.

We should not be making better tech for mining. We should be changing crypto to low power use versions. It is ridiculous to mine while our planet is on fire and flooded at the same damn time.
 
Ah, the same Company that says "we love gamers" left right and center is using their dies for mining cards instead of more gaming cards. Right...

I don't understand why people believes nVidia cares about gamers one bit. Not that Companies actually care, mind you, but nVidia is not even hiding the knife behind their back when reaching out for a handshake; they're going full frontal assault to your wallets and you're allowing it. It's hilarious.

Regards.

Datapoint #1: Companies are, in the end, only answerable to their shareholders, PR notwithstanding.
Datapoint #2: Current economic mess produced oodles of hot fund that might well explosively boil and vaporize, and had nowhere better to go.
Datapoint #3: Spending power of most individual person is limited as a result of #2, compared to mining profitability in many ways also resulting from #2.
Result: An inevitably bloody shame such as this.

Miners won't buy it because price is too high for the performance it offers. $5k for 160MH/s... A 3080 can pull 100MH/s and is less than half the cost at scalper prices. Currently 3080 is going for less than $2000.
