Now, Cryptocurrency Mining Graphics Cards Are Also Modified For Gaming Purposes

 A few days ago, we reported that there are a number of factories in China that modify the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card into a graphics card that will be used as a graphics card for artificial intelligence purposes.

Recently, to try to fill the gap in the gaming graphics card sector for users, a number of GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card developers are used to mine cryptocurrency and modify it back so that it can be used for gaming purposes.

For a cryptocurrency mining graphics card, it will not normally come with any video output plug because for the purpose of mining, these users will not need it and it will only take up space.

But the addition of this plug is not something difficult to do, and the sales of graphics cards like this seem to be quite good because it is quite difficult to get high-performance gaming graphics cards in the Chinese market now.

What's more interesting about this modified graphics card is that it also comes with 12GB of GDDR6 memory, 8GB more than the usual GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card. These graphics cards also have a higher overtime value, but the risk is that these graphics cards are already used for cryptocurrency mining, so the probability of failure is also high.

Apart from that, the AMD Radeon RX 580 graphics card is also seen to have received the same makeover. Like previous graphics cards, the memory has also been increased from 8GB GDDR6 to 16GB and with a higher overclock value.

These graphics cards are also sold at relatively high prices, especially because of the higher-than-usual amount of memory and overclocking value. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 20GB in particular is seen selling for $900 even though unmodified graphics cards have previously had a $600 price tag.
