    no resale value. how will it fare against Turing/Ampere/Volta? or whatever NV calls next Geforce arch. looks at least 10% slower than a 1080ti and if next gen is say 10-15% faster it may not make sense to buy this unless it is like a few hundred bucks say less than $300.

    It looks faster then a 1080ti. A 1080ti desnt do 660h/s on zcash or 47mh on ether. And with the right memory volta can do near 100mh/s on ether (see Tesla v100)

    article says GP102-100 so a version of 1080ti core with less cores, same core speed and same type of memory but with less memory bandwidth so how can it be faster? I think I got 740ish h/s on my 1080tis, it's been awhile. and like I said I think the eth rate is a typo, maybe 37mh/s.

    Drivers vbios custom pcb. Gpus are not entirely made for mining. I know I can get quite abit extra prefermance writing a custom vbios for my firepros. I can't imagine all the things that can be done with full range over the entire board. And 740h/s is extremely high on zcash

    1080tis can do 680-750 sol/sec on equihash easily.

    custom pcb is a bit much. maybe some custom bios for the eth rate which works by tightening times similar to rx 480/580 bios mods, ok. given nobody has cracked pascal bios they might get away with it. for zec, try different miner I just did a search and others get that rate. the xmr rate is about right for a 1080ti as well. so maybe some bios mod for GP102 core as compared to 1080ti can do 47 mh/s for eth.

    I never heard of Inno3D before...but at this point with the lack of supply I could brand my own line of GPU's and people would buy them

    Call me cynical, but this just seems like a guerrilla marketing ploy for Inno3D or other parties involved.

    I remember them from way back in the TNT2 days. I had no idea they were still around.

    They have been around for a long time, since 1998. They were fairly popular in the 8800 / 2900XT Ati days.

    These are asian market only from what I can tell, not released to individuals. Rumors is it is a way to use chips with display output issues and a cheap as they can get away with on the memory.

    Are Inno3D a quality company or shit? Also, yeah, as someone pointed above, it looks like they mostly sell cards in East Asia?

    Yeah, it needs to have a good warranty and cost considerably less than it’s market equivalent... If not then I don’t see it being bought over it’s gaming counterpart for home miners, larger operations might go for it if they never resale anything.
