AMD Refuses to Limit Cryptocurrency Mining Performance of Radeon RX 6000 Series Graphics Cards

Unlike what NVIDIA has decided to do with its GeForce RTX 3060 graphics cards, AMD will not implement cryptocurrency mining limits in its Radeon RX 6000 series GPUs. The claim comes from one of Red Team’s product managers, Nish Nilaloyanan, who explicitly stated during a recent phone interview that the company has no plans to hinder its products in any way. Although the RDNA 2 is designed exclusively for gaming purposes, AMD believes that owners should be able to use the device as they see fit.

In short, the answer is no, Nelaloyanan said, referring to the potential mining limiter at PC Gamer’s preview of the Radeon RX 6700 XT. We will not block any workload, not only for mining.

There are a few things, though. First, RDNA was designed for gaming from the beginning, and RDNA 2 takes it a step further. And what I mean by that is: Infinity Cache and a smaller bus width were carefully chosen to achieve a very specific game success rate. However, reclamation requires more bandwidth and bus width, which imposes architectural constraints on the reclamation itself.

All of our optimizations, as always, will be focused on the game, and we’ve optimized everything for the game. It will obviously benefit the players, but it will not be ideal for mining. That said, it’s always fun to keep an eye on this market.

According to Minerstat, the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT and Radeon RX 6800 XT graphics cards have ether hash rates of 60.38 MH/s and 59.44 MH/s, respectively. While this mining performance is significantly lower than that of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090, which offers hash speeds of up to 121.16 MH/s, this is unlikely to stop crypto-currency experts from stocking up on red Navi 21 GPUs.
