    It's all getting silly this mining malarkey, wasting far too much valuable electricity.
    It's far more effective and costs far less than when the banks do it.

      This shit should be illegal.
      I got an idea.

      Try the driver launched prior to the 3060 launch!

        Ah, they had to somehow compensate for 3060 having "too much" memory. Not that I mind actually having some GPUs available for gamers.

          There was a good article on the subject on the BBC last week.....

          Bitcoin consumes 'more electricity than Argentina'

          And that's just Bitcoin.

            Didn't AMD plan one too? There were some code commits related to that.

              The BBC is against it because Bitcoin is eroding their British Pound, I wonder why they didn't do "studies" finding that bitcoin users are terrorists.

                I feel the whole zgeist movement is a very fishy thing and everyone should internally question themselves about the motives of it.

                  I'd go and see an optician about your myopia before you fall down a manhole.

                    The fact that Norway uses more energy than Argentina, despite being almost just one tenth of the population of Argentina is pretty disturbing too. (Yes, I know that's like 99% hydroelectric power, but still).

                      I don't care about the movement but the world has gone overboard with consumption and breeding and I don't like where we are headed to.
