Tom’s Hardware has shared photographs from an individual named Simon Byrne. As per the publication and as outlined in the pictures, Byrne made a small scale cryptocurrency mining rig in the rear of his BMW i8 hybrid sports car comprising six Nvidia RTX 3080 graphics cards.
At the point when inquired as to whether the arrangement was genuine, Byrne supposedly told the publication that he made it himself “just to bother gamers.” The BMW’s internal battery pack is said to have a very sizable amount of juice to control the six Nvidia RTX 3080 GPU arrangements.
While it’s flawless to take a look at, the setup isn’t appallingly viable for really mining cryptocurrency. Because of the gigantic measure of warmth produced by the GPUs, the vehicle’s rear hatch should stay open altogether for the apparatus to avoid overheating. It would likewise likely experience cooling issues during warm summer months.
One needs to likewise infer that the danger of robbery is high. Publicizing six popular GPUs that are as yet commanding a premium on third-party marketplaces like eBay in the rear of your vehicle is simply requesting somebody to submit a smash and grab.
