Recently launched AMD GPUs RX 6800, RX 6800XT, and RX 6900XT are already giving trouble to NVIDEA due to their unbeatable price to performance. And now there is a rumor that the RX 6800, the lowest variant among the three cards, is 50% faster than the NVIDEA’s top-end RTX 3090 in cryptocurrency mining.
According to Videocardz.com, the RTX 3090 can generate up to 3.37 USD worth of cryptocurrency each day and that means around 100 USD per month. If the rumor about the RX 6800 is 50% faster in mining than the RTX 3090 is true then the RX 6800 should generate 5 USD worth of cryptocurrency and approx 150 USD per month while the RTX 3090 cost way higher than the RX 6800.[Ryzen 5000 series cpu are here]
The RTX 3090 costs around 1499 USD whereas the RX 6800 costs only 579 USD. if the rumor became true then all the miners should take the RX 6800 instead of RTX 3090 because they gain 50% more profit while they spend less than half of the money they have to pay to buy RTX 3090. That means, there is a huge chance of stock shortage of the RX 6800 and also may be an increase in the price of RX 6800 and which may not be good for all consumers.
