It is no secret that companies active in the field of graphic production sell their products to miners in large numbers. Of course, now the price of graphics has decreased drastically because cryptocurrencies have lost their value and the sale of graphics to these people and organizations has also decreased drastically. But at that time, many users accused the companies of doing this. Zotak once produced graphics specifically for miners and mentioned exactly the phrase "for mining" in its advertisements. This made many people react strongly to this company.

Now one of the whistleblowers in Twitter has published an image of an MSI graphics card that shows an RTX 3080 for miners. This graphic is produced only for miners and uses 20 GB of dedicated memory. This is despite the fact that RTX 3080 series graphics do not use this amount of internal memory at all. This card is now available for sale at an unknown price and in a limited number (100 units).

RTX 3080 series graphics are often 10 or eventually 12 GB. Although the general specifications of this card have not been announced exactly, it seems that its graphics chip is GA102-250. Now, it is interesting to know that Nvidia had previously used this chip for RTX 3090, while the RTX 3080 Ti was originally supposed to use it.

What makes the story of this graphics more interesting is this. MSI apparently produced this card in very limited numbers and sold them all to one company. It is possible that these cards could not pass the testing process successfully. This is why they are only considered a suitable option for mining. It should be noted that this card will only be suitable for mining.
