The entire reason why Nvidia can block crypto mining in the current way is that their drivers are closed source and they can basically add whatever secret sauce they want. Not a good thing.

@PeterCxy Btw they limited half precision (or double precision, I forgot which one) on consumer cards with drivers so if you want fast deep learning you need to buy professional cards.
It's super annoying.

@EWings @PeterCxy Nvidia also blocks virtualization, the driver aborts when it detects a supervisor.
