Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Comes With Decreased Mining Hashrate Too

Identical to the extra lately launched Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 that got here with mining hashrate limiter enforced by Nvidia, the brand new GeForce RTX 3080 Ti additionally got here out “with a decreased Ethereum hash price” making them much less fascinating for miners. The simply launched Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is sort of equal when it comes to specs to an RTX 3090 GPU, however with half the video reminiscence, so solely 12GB GDDR6X as an alternative of the complete 24GB. For the brand new RTX 3080 Ti when it comes to CUDA cores there’s a very slight discount and reminiscence clocks too, however the reminiscence bus stays 384-bit, so in concept efficiency clever it ought to be similar to an RTX 3090 and that goes not just for mining, however for gaming as properly. There may be the Ethereum hashrate limiter nevertheless that messes issues up a bit for miners, however not for avid gamers and the decreased in half video reminiscence must also be making it extra reasonably priced and extra accessible to avid gamers in comparison with RTX 3080… in concept.

Making an attempt to mine Ethereum (ETH) at inventory settings for the RTX 3080 Ti reveals a beginning hashrate at about 100 MH/s that shortly drops all the way down to round 53-55 MH/s with the default setting because of the enforced hashrate limiter for mining ETH by Nvidia. The default settings for the RTX 3080 Ti from Palit/Gainward we’ve got tried give us 325W of energy utilization as reported by the miner. And though Nvidia talks about limiting Ethereum mining hahsrate different related reminiscence intensive mining algorithms might also be affected in addition to we’ve got seen already with the RTX 3060 GPUs that had been the primary to introduce the hashrate limiting answer by Nvidia.

Going for optimized settings to cut back energy consumption for 265W and have increased hashrate (if there was no hashrate limiter in play) give us barely decrease beginning hashrate a bit beneath 100 MH/s, however it drops all the way down to round 60 MH/s and never beneath that like with inventory settings. So, efficiency clever mining Ethereum (if there was no synthetic hashrate limiter) the RTX 3080 Ti ought to’ve been usually able to delivering the identical hashrate as an RTX 3090 does at present. One thing round 100 MH/s with inventory settings and about 120 MH/s with clocked reminiscence and decreased energy utilization may’ve been potential, however as an alternative we’re getting simply round half of that in actuality.

Now, Nvidia is speaking about Ethereum mining hashrate limiter, although another reminiscence intensive crypto mining algorithms may additionally be affected as we already know, however there are nonetheless different algorithms that might be delivering the complete hashrate with none synthetic limiters in play. Right here is an instance with RavenCoin (RVN) mining on the RTX 3080 Ti the place the hashrate isn’t being artificially decreased, you may be getting about 48 MH/s hashrate for KawPoW with the inventory settings. And though this can make mining RVN extra worthwhile than ETH on this explicit GPU, if the bogus ETH hashrate limiter was not current mining ETH would’ve been extra worthwhile. So, the brand new Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti isn’t going to be a gorgeous choice for Ethereum miners, although another crypto miners not into ETH may be , however we’re seeing beginning costs for the Ti as for the non-Ti model the place accessible. And in contrast to miners, avid gamers won’t be very completely happy to purchase at these inflated costs, don’t forget nevertheless that avid gamers might be getting efficiency very near that of the a lot increased priced (for the second) RTX 3090 GPUs.

The New Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 Ti that must also be hitting the market in a number of days from now can also be going to supply a pleasant improve when it comes to {hardware} specs over the older RTX 3070 GPU, however similar to the RTX 3080 Ti it’ll additionally include synthetic Ethereum hashrate limiter. Essentially the most notable improve for the brand new RTX3 070 Ti over the previous non-Ti mannequin is the brand new sooner GDDR6X reminiscence which ought to in concept improve the mining efficiency for reminiscence intensive algorithm, however because of the Nvidia hashrate limiter Ethereum mining won’t be benefiting a lot and actually we count on to see decrease hashrate than on RTX 3070 due to the limiter in play. Once more, another reminiscence intensive algorithms apart from Ethash may be affected as properly, although not all, and GPU intensive mining will most likely not undergo and the efficiency there ought to be barely higher than on RTX 3070.
