Nvidia Reportedly Revamps Ampere Silicon To Stop Ethereum Mining For Good

According to HKEPC’s report, Nvidia is ready to redeem itself after the whole anti-mining limiter fiasco with the GeForce RTX 3060. The chipmaker is reportedly preparing a new variant of the GA106 silicon to restore the Ethereum anti-mining limiter back to its not-so-glory days.

Citing an unidentified Taiwanese graphics card manufacturer as the source, HKEPC claims that Nvidia has discontinued the GA106-300 die, which powers the GeForce RTX 3060. Therefore, upcoming GeForce RTX 3060 graphics cards will be based on the new GA106-302 die.  As simple as the solution may seem, the die swap is sufficient to invalidate the Nvidia-leaked GeForce 470.05 Beta driver since it doesn’t have the data to pick up the new PCI Device ID. According to HKEPC’s sources, Nvidia has implemented additional mechanisms into the GA106-302 silicon so cracking the anti-mining limiter won’t be as easy as before.
