What do you guys think about the possibility of using lots of Arduinos to possibly replace expensive GPU's in bitcoin mining

I'm not sure what I'm talking about here too much but I'm pained to see expensive GPU's that the ultra-rich buy in the thousands and mine so much bitcoin.
My attempts of bitcoin mining with my PC were a failure because my 4GB GPU is not strong enough at all
Renting ASIC miners are mostly scams and I will not get much return
The one thing I'm forced to go to is to make my own GPU by my self and see if there is a possibility of working a with a general PC
As far as I'm aware this has never been done before and by no means do I expect an Arduino graphics card to be as strong as an early 2000's GPU but my thinking is: If I can buy the components for a cheap price then I can assemble an array of weak GPU's to become a far stronger one

If this whole idea is a flop and there is no real way to make money, I want to use this as a learning experience
So the first thing I want is a discussion on whether or not this could even achieve and become compatible with a PC. Whether it be a gaming PC or a raspberry Pi
The next is some sources on how GPU's work and their pinout and whatnot
I really don't expect any positive comments in this comment section since what I'm thinking of doing is near enough outrageous Xd

Where are the GPU mining rigs that used to mine Bitcoin?

I wonder what happened to GPU mining rigs when ASICs took over the market and Bitcoin mining on GPUs became unprofitable? Let's discuss !
Also, if you were a bitcoin GPU miner or are mining any other crypto with GPUs today then mention your system specs as well !

Question: All I can find about what you're doing when mining for bitcoin is "solving cryptographic problems" - what does this even mean?

Forgive me if I'm overlooking something really obvious - but I've been seeing buzz about bitcoin and bitcoin "mining" using GPU power, so I'm thinking to myself "Okay, what is this GPU power being used for? Something like [email protected]?"
Googling around and reading, all I can find is that the GPUs are contributing to "finding a solution to a cryptographic problem"...
What problem(s) are being solved, exactly? It seems a bit weird and nebulous to just say you're solving cryptographic problems. Is the end result decrypting some encrypted data? What is that data?
Obviously this is a little out there - but for all I know, the bitcoin mining is ultimately helping someone decrypt some massive data store (stolen accounts, who knows what?) ... I'm guessing it's not that, but there's so little detail on what cryptographic problem you're looking for the solution to that it's a little strange to me...

05-09 08:14 - 'Should I mine or use my gpu for hashing for others on NiceHash?' (self.Bitcoin) by /u/ExorisPrime removed from /r/Bitcoin within 166-176min

'''
I’ve recently gotten into the bitcoin and coins industry but I need to know which one I should do for maximum profit.
I have an RTX 2060 as my gpu should I keep on using nicehash and get my bitcoins like that or should I start mining ethereum and other coins for the most profit? (I know bitcoin can’t be mined by gpu anymore)
Please help as the bitcoin is halving really soon and I need to make a decision.

Interesting LTT Video on a software modded bitcoin mining GPU used for gaming!

He attempts to rig together something similar to nvidia optimus on a desktop using iGPU and a dGPU. the dGPU has no display outputs.
It's also cheap at only $60 for a "gtx 1060" ! I paid $300 for mine!
it does have a lot of drawbacks and I honestly wouldn't trust it for a daily driver with windows 10 constant updates. You also lost any optimizations. Really just an interesting footnote
forgot the link!

If the browser is using GPU, is it mining bitcoin?

So my browser, CocCoc (a version of Chrome), is using GPU when I check in Task Manager, adn there was absolutely no webpage I opened that had graphics involved, so I suspect it's crypto mining. Here's a screenshot. Help me out, folks?

[Noob Questions] Just Started Bitcoin Mining Today Using NiceHash. I'm accepting shares but my GPU says it's running at 0% according to Task Manager?

I've accepted 12 shares in the last half hour, and I've been watching in Task Manager to see how much GPU is being used... it's stayed at 0% the entire time. Nice Hash Miner Legacy says it's using my GPU and making from 1.5 to 1.9 Dollars a day, so according to that It's working but I don't get why my computer doesn't seem to recognize that my GPU is running... even though my fans are going full boar.
Is this normal or am I doing something wrong?

Is Bitcoin (or ETH) mining profitable in India using Radeon RX 560 4GB GPU?

Electricity rates were I live is RS 3.2/- per kwh. How much profit can I expect to make each month if I mine for 7hrs per day?

Daily reminder: If you use trannyshop, your switch cert has been stolen, its GPU has been used to mine bitcoin, and a remote bricker has been installed on it. You've been warned. Don't come crying later.

I'm convinced my laptop is being hacked and my GPU is being used to mine bitcoin.

Whenever i play game, doesn't matter the game, doesn't matter if my graphics are high or low, about every minute my framerate tanks to 15-20fps or less. I alt+tab, mouse is running smoothly, desktop and everything loads fine, just my game is laggy. I run task manager while my game is lagging, my GPU % bar reads 99-100%, yet every process underneath it says 0%, including the game which is obviously using GPU. So obviously by this point i've died in my game and i'm now spectating my friends - NO FPS DROPS. I start playing, a minute later, FPS drops start happening again, same symptoms in my task manager. It's as if i'm being intentionally sabotaged while i'm gaming, and only when i'm gaming. Watching movies? Doing anything else? No FPS drops, no GPU spikes. My laptop doesn't even feel that hot.
Get this though, this is the strangest part...while i'm getting the FPS tank, if i pull out the power cord to my laptop and then plug it back in again, it's fixed! My glorious 50+ FPS is restored, only to tank again after a few minutes. So i either have to put up with the FPS loss for about 45 precious seconds of gaming, have it go back to normal, tank again, repeat, or i have to use one hand to unplug my power cable and put it back in to quickly (and temporarily) fix the issue. It's worth mentioning that when i do that the symptoms in my task manager are fixed also.
I ran virus scans, everything looks fine. Graphics card is up to date, all drivers are up to date, all power settings are at high performance, i've done everything reddit and google has told me, yet nothing has worked. In fact, in all my google and reddit searching/asking all i've got are dead threads with no answers, there must be millions of people with my problem if there are ZERO answers on the entire internet.
I had this problem before, but it stopped when i got a new SSD and reinstalled everything on it. Now it's back, and even more frequent than before. I don't torrent, i don't watch porn, i don't go on dodgy sites, i do regular scans and am on top of my shit...but this is fucking my ass every day and i fear for the safety of people around me.
Because nobody has been able to help me or the hundreds of other people who have done posts similar to mine, i'm convinced it's one of those hacks i've heard about where people hijack GPU's to mine for bitcoin, and i'm a victim of someone who likes to strike only when i play games. It's the only logical explaination i've gotten in the void of answers as of the last 2 years.
