See
https://blogs.nvidia.com/blog/2021/02/18/geforce-cmp/
where Nvidia state the GeForce RTX 3060 software drivers are designed to detect specific attributes of the Ethereum cryptocurrency mining algorithm, and limit the hash rate, or cryptocurrency mining efficiency, by around 50 percent. They want gamers to have the card - not crypto miners. Where would prime hunters fall? It's not gaming, but neither is it mining.

It might be a game of cat-and-mouse, with a challenge to miner developers to use the card, without it being detected as mining.
