It looks like Galax won’t only release RTX 3070 and RTX 3080 cards with the crypto mining limiter. Recently, the company added RTX 3060 and the RTX 3060 Ti graphics cards with the ‘FG’ naming to their website, which means they have their Ethereum mining performance halved.
From what we’ve gathered, the Galax ‘FG’ cards will feature Nvidia GPUs with the new crypto mining limiter (LHR). Galax’s new RTX 3060 Ti FG models come with the GA104-202 GPU, which has a crypto mining performance of about 25MH/s. The new RTX 3060 cards are equipped with the GA106-302 chip capable of mining Ethereum at 25 MH/s.
Like the RTX 3070 and RTX 3080 cards, there’s no other difference besides the crypto mining performance. The operating frequencies, memory, cooling system, and design, all look to be the same.
Galax is the only AiB partner that has added the new cards to their website, but other companies should soon follow. As per VideoCardz, it seems that MSI is one of them, given the recent addition of the graphics cards models to EEC’s database. The new cards with ‘PLUS’ in their name might be the new ones with anti-mining tech, but there are also a few Radeon cards listed with the ‘PLUS’ moniker. These Radeon cards, unlike Nvidia ones, shouldn’t feature the mining limiter.
KitGuru says: Are you still hoping to get a new graphics card at MSRP? Do you believe the introduction of anti-mining tech will improve the GPU stock?
