If you get pissed off that after a few months you still can’t get your own GeForce RTX 3080 – or you complain that you had to pay for it as for the proverbial “oxen” – then we are happy to report that “crypto miners” of such problems they do not have. There are photos of the so-called cryptocurrency excavators built with – attention – seventy-eight flagship Nvidia graphics chips (via TechArp)

The system is called Berta 2 and belongs to a certain Simon Byrne, who he probably paid about one hundred thousand dollars for it.
According to data from the Minerstat portal, while “mining” the Ethereum cryptocurrency (the GeForce RTX 3080 copes with it exceptionally well), each chip can provide a daily profit of $ 6, taking into account the current exchange rate of the virtual coin (one has to pay about a thousand dollars ) and electricity expenses. This gives an average of 14.1 thousand. dollars per month, which means that your graphics card investment should pay off in about 7 months – of course, assuming that the Ethereum price will remain unchanged during this time, which seems unlikely, because the cryptocurrency market is extremely chaotic.
Cryptocurrency rates such as Bitcoin and Ethereum have gone up in recent months, reaching levels not seen since the turn of 2017 and 2018 (or even breaking them). Unfortunately, this has a negative impact on the prices of graphics systems, especially since due to a number of factors related to the coronavirus pandemic, even without “crypto miners”, the availability of the latter would not be sensational.
