Snapshot reveals 78 GeForce RTX 3080s installed in mining farm


#Like what, the shortage is selective …

#You may have been waiting patiently for your RTX 3080 for several weeks, wondering where all the cards produced since #August may be; #Perhaps here is part of the answer: among cryptocurrency miners. #In any case, some lucky ones do not have an RTX 3080, or even two or three … but downright 78!

#This armada, which would belong to a man named #Simon #Byrne, contains 78 RTX 3080 from PNY. #Total value of the set: around 56,000 euros based on a price of 719 euros per RTX 3080. #But currently, an RTX 3080 is trading around 1,200 dollars across the #Atlantic. #This brings the value of the set to $ 93,600, which can be rounded off to $ 100,000 by taking installation costs into account.

#Cryptocurrencies: the 15 biggest heists in history

#Thousands of dollars earned every month

The total electrical consumption of the assembly is estimated at 23.4 kilowatts. #Running all those RTX 3080s translates to a monthly electric bill of approximately $ 2,160. #This eliminates the need for heating during the winter but above all potentially brings in money.

The yield of an RTX 3080 in #Ethereum mining via #Ethash is around 83 MH / s, or 6474 MH / s for 78 GPUs. #This gives a monthly #Ethereum production of 17.3 ETH.

The prices of cryptocurrencies are constantly changing. #But to put it mildly, such a return was about $ 12,870 per month at the time #TechArp did its calculations. #Electricity bill deducted, therefore $ 10,700 in income earned each month; more than $ 128,000 in a year if prices did not budge. #It will therefore take a little less than a year to make the initial investment profitable.
