Will the RTX 3060 break with past launches?
It's an understatement to say that the launch of the Nvidia Ampere graphics cards has been...fraught. Between cryptominers and organized gangs of profiteers, bot armies have all but vacuumed up the available supply of RTX 3000-series cards before gamers have had a chance to buy them.
But as Jensen Huang pointed out on yesterday's Nvidia earnings call, Nvidia is committed to getting Ampere cards into the hands of gamers, and the RTX 3060 might be a major component of that. With the announced driver update halving the hashrate of the RTX 3060, this card in particular should be much less attractive to miners, making it easier for gamers to get their hands on one.
Combined with efforts like Newegg Shuffle – which is far from perfect, honestly -hopefully the launch of this card will go better than earlier Ampere launches.
