    So what's the first problem I experience with this driver? "a regression that could cause display corruption after resuming from suspend" ta dah. Funny stuff. They are having trouble with that one.

    From what I've seen from a few youtubers the card have a very meh value even at MSRP. In today's market however, a product's value doesn't really matter cause they can increase all their prices by 30% and still have everything sell out.

    They could, obviously, but why do that if the driver is ready?

    But lack of availability is not that bad, the perf/$ of this card seems to be bad enough you wouldn't buy one if you could get it at MSRP.

    Let those early adopters beta test for Nvidia using development drivers and submit bug reports so that the proper driver release addresses most issues experienced.

    Barely faster and barely more power efficient than the RTX 2060 Super which is made using a much worse node.

    Looks like I'm hard skipping the entire RTX 3000 generation and will wait for what comes next. The 1660 Ti that I own works just fine at 1080p.
    Honestly it is a bit wierd because all previous Ampere cards undervolted really well, but Turing didn't. Maybe that is why energy efficiency doesn't seem much better.

    Also on windows side, 3060 with new driver supports resizable BAR, so probably it is comming to Linux soon.

    The 3060 Ti (at MSRP) is a much better card.

    Even being artificially crippled for mining is not about to stop them bloody scalpers.

    Assuming their DMA-BUF support also works for X11 then it would be helpful there aswell. For example for Firefox WebGL performance (once the EGL backend gets enabled, can currently be forced with `MOZ_X11_EGL=1`). Theoretically hardware video decoding should work with it as well.
