Trying to mine Ethereum (ETH) at stock settings for the RTX 3080 Ti shows a starting hashrate at about 100 MH/s that rapidly falls to around 53-55 MH/s with the default setting due to the enforced hashrate limiter for mining ETH by Nvidia. The default settings for the RTX 3080 Ti from Palit/Gainward we have actually tried provide us 325W of power use as reported by the miner. And although Nvidia talks about restricting Ethereum mining hahsrate other similar memory extensive mining algorithms may likewise be affected in addition to we have actually seen currently with the RTX 3060 GPUs that were the very first to present the hashrate restricting service by Nvidia.
Much like the more just recently launched Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 that included mining hashrate limiter imposed by Nvidia, the brand-new GeForce RTX 3080 Ti also came out “with a decreased Ethereum hash rate” making them less desirable for miners. The just released Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is nearly comparable in terms of specs to an RTX 3090 GPU, but with half the video memory, so only 12GB GDDR6X instead of the full 24GB. For the brand-new RTX 3080 Ti in terms of CUDA cores there is a very small decrease and memory clocks too, however the memory bus remains 384-bit, so in theory performance smart it should be extremely similar to an RTX 3090 and that goes not only for mining, but for gaming. There is the Ethereum hashrate limiter however that messes things up a bit for miners, but not for players and the minimized in half video memory should likewise be making it more inexpensive and more offered to players compared to RTX 3080 … in theory.
Going for enhanced settings to minimize power intake for 265W and have greater hashrate (if there was no hashrate limiter in play) offer us somewhat lower starting hashrate a bit below 100 MH/s, however it drops down to around 60 MH/s and not below that like with stock settings. Efficiency sensible mining Ethereum (if there was no artificial hashrate limiter) the RTX 3080 Ti shouldve been generally capable of providing the very same hashrate as an RTX 3090 does currently. Something around 100 MH/s with stock settings and about 120 MH/s with clocked memory and minimized power usage mightve been possible, but rather we are getting simply around half of that in reality.
Now, Nvidia is speaking about Ethereum mining hashrate limiter, though some other memory extensive crypto mining algorithms may also be affected as we currently understand, however there are still other algorithms that will be delivering the complete hashrate without any synthetic limiters in play. Here is an example with RavenCoin (RVN) mining on the RTX 3080 Ti where the hashrate is not being synthetically lowered, you will be getting about 48 MH/s hashrate for KawPoW with the stock settings. And although this will make mining RVN more successful than ETH on this specific GPU, if the artificial ETH hashrate limiter was not present mining ETH wouldve been more profitable. The new Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is not going to be an appealing alternative for Ethereum miners, though some other crypto miners not into ETH might be interested, but we are seeing beginning costs for the Ti as for the non-Ti version where available. And unlike miners, players will not be really happy to purchase these inflated costs, do not forget however that gamers will be getting efficiency really close to that of the much greater priced (for the moment) RTX 3090 GPUs.
The New Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 Ti that must also be hitting the marketplace in a couple of days from now is likewise going to offer a great upgrade in regards to hardware specs over the older RTX 3070 GPU, however similar to the RTX 3080 Ti it will also come with synthetic Ethereum hashrate limiter. The most noteworthy upgrade for the brand-new RTX3 070 Ti over the old non-Ti model is the new faster GDDR6X memory which must in theory increase the mining efficiency for memory extensive algorithm, however due to the Nvidia hashrate limiter Ethereum mining will not be benefiting much and in truth we anticipate to see lower hashrate than on RTX 3070 thanks to the limiter in play. Again, some other memory extensive algorithms besides Ethash might be impacted also, though not all, and GPU intensive mining will probably not suffer and the performance there needs to be a little better than on RTX 3070.
