That crytpo mineware crud in the video cards was a nightmare a few years ago to the point where normal users could not find cards in stock. I think nVidia eliminated it in the later phases of the 30 series, but nothing was mentioned in the 40 series.

Does this all mean that there are no 50 series GPUs coming in 2024?
IIRC, nVidia said no new architecture until 2025. Will look at refreshes of current generation (aka Super's and Super Ti's) and continued focus on AI for 2024...
Some reports are also indicating the the 50xx series will be a refresh of the current Ada Lovelace GPU (same architecture on a die shrink), rather than a new implementation.

I'd like to see about 30% higher Compute performance/Watt since I'm not willing to go over 300W with the UPS I can use on a 120V/15A circuit.

I can't believe there's such a thing as an independent GPU repair specialist, but here's this guy on Youtube explaining the realities of having a fat ass RTX 4090 in horizontal mounting.


Watching a couple of his videos, I have serious respect for a guy willing to de-solder and re-mount a contemporary GPU.

Gosh it's been decades since I last was reflowing surface mount ICs and of course nothing that large.
Many issues would be resolved if we still had viable horizontal desktop cases.
