Oh no...

AMD's Radeon RX 6800 is reportedly 50% faster than an RTX 3090 when crypto mining

According to a report from ChipHell, via Videocardz, AMD's upcoming RX 6800 graphics card (not the RX 6800 XT) can deliver users 50% more cryptocurrency mining performance than Nvidia's RTX 3090 graphics card. 

At the time of writing, Nvidia's RTX 3090 graphics card is already profitable when used for cryptocurrency mining. Still, its high power consumption and high pricing make the graphics card unappealing to this market. In contrast, the lower power consumption levels of AMD's Radeon RX 6800 and its attractive $579 price tag makes mining significantly more profitable, lowering power draw and GPU cost while increasing mining performance. 

Videocardz has calculated that Nvidia's RTX 3090 can generate $3.37 (USD) per day, generating around $100 per month of mining. That's a lot of money, but nothing when compared to the RTX 3090's $1499+ pricing. If these RX 6800 mining claims are accurate, Radeon's lower-end Big Navi chip could generate $150 per month through Nicehash, offsetting the GPU's MSRP price tag in four months.  

New graphics cards are already in short supply, and this trend is set to continue with the launch of AMD's Radeon RX 6000 series. The PC gaming market doesn't need another cryptocurrency mining craze, 

If these Radeon RX 6000 series mining claims are accurate, both AMD and Nvidia are likely to suffer supply issues for the foreseeable future. This is bad news for PC gamers, as this will prevent them from acquiring new hardware as easily as before. For this reason, we hope that these RX 6800 mining claims are untrue.

So .. it's grab one on release (in that 2 second window of opportunity) or wait until the next crypto crash.Quote

Whether this is true or not there's going to be a shortage and for a while. Nothing has changed except the used market in 6 months.Quote
