    It’s a shame that so many of those dedicated mining GPUs are useless now, isn’t it? But even with no outputs, Chinese hackers made it so they can still game! Or have they…

    NVIDIA done it on purpose because MONEY! They want you to buy the 1060 for 3x the price instead of this "1060" which obviously proofs that they're overcharging for their GPU's up the ass

    I oredered an 1060 3gb for 40€ so where did you find the drivers and they can clock higher
    Edit : i take it back i am building a 6 core 1080p ultra pc under 200$
    Edit2 : what if nvidia is bored to delete the slots for the hdmi slots? Then you can wire a new one there
    Edit3 : i shouldnt write here you said everything

    It is an e waste problem but to Nvidia - they are not about to let 10000 potential sales go elsewhere - their stance will be - FUCK the environment. This should be a little more public Linus but thank you for the video.

    generally mining cards have less mosfets than gaming ones so they tend to brake down easily

    Like... upgrading your GTX 1080ti with a second mining 1080ti for the third of the price?

    What about buying one dead 1060 for cheap and one working for mining, and soldering the inputs from the dead gaming 1060 to a mining 1060. I mean if GPU is dead it's very unlikely that the inputs are dead. And you could easily find a dead 1060 for 10$ IMO

    Has someone tried to flash the vBios from a Gigabyte GTX 1060 ( www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/186425/gigabyte-gtx1060-6144-160728 ) with the nvflash.exe to this card? I think it could work with the real gaming driver and without the test sign mode ...

    Scientists could use them for simulation purposes. A lot of simulations use cuda.

    By the way, most online games will not allow test signing mode because drivers can be used to read/write memory.

    Looking for ways to resurrect old mining GPUs to save e waste is definitely at the bottom of Nvidia’s priorities. They are likely much more interested in people buying new graphics cards and making money like any other company out there.

    Nvidia could design a driver / gui program for this card and sell that to still make a nice profit. But honestly it would probably be pirated in no time.
