Let’s not be naive, Nvidia and AMD are very happy to do business with the crypto-money mining. The main concern for them is the image that this obscure business sends back to the hardware community. An image that Nvidia has always tried to stifle and where many shadows remain
The mining of this manna which makes task
How can we avoid missing out on this highly profitable business when we are in a period of shortage? How can we ensure that the impact of mining does not further aggravate price pressures? Nvidia seems to have a solution running through her head. At the 19th annual JP Morgan Tech / Auto Forum conference, Nvidia revealed the possibility of manufacturing specialized cards for mining. These graphics cards will have no video output and could use defective GPU’s at the texture unit level, as mining only requires the GPU computing section. The chameleon is therefore thinking that it could launch its own products dedicated to mining. The hand on the heart Nvidia explains that this strategy would remove the pressure on the gaming cards…Big deal.
Bringing Nvidia back to the camp of the Good and increasing profits
“If the demand for cryptos starts up again or if we see a significant related demand, we can also take this opportunity to restart the CMP [mining-specific GPU] product line to meet continued mining demand,” said Colette Kress, Nvidia’s CFO. Above all, this strategy would allow Nvidia to have 100% control of this business and to capture the margin (since defective GPUs are for the moment only products destined to end up in the dustbin). In other words, this fabulous magic trick, if it were to come true, would make Nvidia’s partner brands gnash their teeth. Nvidia does not spit on this market and would be totally excluded from it overnight.
