A brand new writer in the fields, Fatima has been taken under my electric spark's RGB- rich and ensures she doesn't engage in excessive snark on the website. It's unclear what command and Conquer are; however, she can talk for hours about the odd rhythm games, hardware, product reviews, and MMOs that were popular in the 2000s. Fatima has been creating various announcements, previews, and other content while here, but particularly enjoys writing regarding Products' latest news in the market she's currently addicted to. She is likely talking to an additional blogger with her current obsession right now.

A Korean TechTuber has shared photo that is said to show the bare PCB of a desktop graphics card that features an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 mobile GPU. BullsLab Jay says that the PCB shot, centered on the GPU and 6GB worth of memory ICs, shared some interesting comments on this unofficial silicon mish-mash.

According to the TechTuber, those who get their hands on one of these RTX 3060 Mobile add-in-cards for desktop PCs will have to rely on a “custom driver.” BullsLab Jay clarified by stating that Nvidia‘s “official drivers [are] not recognized.”

When we reported upon spotting piles of these mixed-up GPUs being sold on the internet in China back in March, we mentioned that they were very likely to be cryptomining GPUs. In brief, the GeForce RTX 3060 Mobile never featured Nvidia‘s Light Hash Rate (LHR) cryptocurrency mining limiter, so these unofficial hybrids were quite popular. Reports suggested there were similarly cobbled together RTX 3070 mobile GPUs on desktop cards too.

With the cards meant for cryptomining, the reliance on a custom driver wouldn’t be much of a bother. However, those with any intention of Gaming, (and avoiding drivers of unknown provenance, which is just good security practice) may be upset that they won’t get regular updates and optimized drivers for games.
