Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Comes With Diminished Mining Hashrate Too


Similar to the extra not too long ago 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 diminished Ethereum hash fee” making them much less fascinating for miners. The simply launched Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is nearly 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 principle efficiency clever it needs to be similar to an RTX 3090 and that goes not just for mining, however for gaming as properly. There’s the Ethereum hashrate limiter nevertheless that messes issues up a bit for miners, however not for avid gamers and the diminished in half video reminiscence also needs to be making it extra inexpensive and extra out there to avid gamers in comparison with RTX 3080… in principle.

Attempting to mine Ethereum (ETH) at inventory settings for the RTX 3080 Ti exhibits a beginning hashrate at about 100 MH/s that shortly drops right down to round 53-55 MH/s with the default setting as a result of enforced hashrate limiter for mining ETH by Nvidia. The default settings for the RTX 3080 Ti from Palit/Gainward we have now tried give us 325W of energy utilization as reported by the miner. And though Nvidia talks about limiting Ethereum mining hahsrate different comparable reminiscence intensive mining algorithms may be affected in addition to we have now seen already with the RTX 3060 GPUs that have 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 under 100 MH/s, however it drops right down to round 60 MH/s and never under 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 diminished energy utilization may’ve been attainable, 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 also be affected as we already know, however there are nonetheless different algorithms that will probably 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 shouldn’t be being artificially diminished, 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 specific GPU, if the factitious ETH hashrate limiter was not current mining ETH would’ve been extra worthwhile. So, the brand new Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti shouldn’t be going to be a horny choice for Ethereum miners, although another crypto miners not into ETH is likely to be , however we’re seeing beginning costs for the Ti as for the non-Ti model the place out there. And in contrast to miners, avid gamers is not going to be very comfortable to purchase at these inflated costs, don’t forget nevertheless that avid gamers will probably 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 also needs to 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’s going to additionally include synthetic Ethereum hashrate limiter. Probably 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 principle improve the mining efficiency for reminiscence intensive algorithm, however as a result of Nvidia hashrate limiter Ethereum mining is not going to 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 in addition to Ethash is likely to be affected as properly, although not all, and GPU intensive mining will in all probability not undergo and the efficiency there needs to be barely higher than on RTX 3070.
