A narrative from MyDrivers (through Videocardz) exhibits us that the GPU occasion is over for now and costs will nearly actually begin creeping again up once more. GPU costs have reached an all-time low again in July and the whole lot appeared to be recovering however it appears just like the second rally of Ethereum has began and exhibits no indicators of slowing down: which has traditionally spelled catastrophe for GPU costs.

Upstream uncooked wafer foundries like Shin Etsu and International Wafers are working at 100% capability (and this isn’t one thing they will simply enhance upon). With NVIDIA set to return to TSMC as effectively, we’re current in what is actually an enormous zero-sum recreation with no hope of capability enhancements until the tip of 2022. Though ETH will shift to ETH 2.0 someday later this yr, which is able to get rid of GPU mining on that specific coin, there are nonetheless altcoins you can mine on a GPU and even NVIDIA’s LHR collection has been unlocked for greater than 70% of its non-LHR hash fee.
