Similar To the more just recently launched Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 that included mining hashrate limiter implemented by Nvidia, the brand-new GeForce RTX 3080 Ti likewise came out “with a minimized Ethereum hash rate” making them less preferable for miners. The simply launched Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is nearly comparable in regards to requirements to an RTX 3090 GPU, however with half the video memory, so just 12GB GDDR6X rather of the complete 24GB. For the brand-new RTX 3080 Ti in regards to CUDA cores there is an extremely small decrease and memory clocks too, however the memory bus stays 384-bit, so in theory efficiency sensible it must be extremely comparable to an RTX 3090 which goes not just for mining, however for video gaming too. There is the Ethereum hashrate limiter nevertheless that messes things up a bit for miners, however not for players and the lowered in half video memory must likewise be making it more budget-friendly and more offered to players compared to RTX 3080… in theory.
Attempting to mine Ethereum (ETH) at stock settings for the RTX 3080 Ti reveals a beginning 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 attempted offer us 325W of power use as reported by the miner. And although Nvidia speak about restricting Ethereum mining hahsrate other comparable memory extensive mining algorithms might likewise be impacted along with we have actually seen currently with the RTX 3060 GPUs that were the very first to present the hashrate restricting service by Nvidia.
Opting for enhanced settings to decrease power usage for 265W and have greater hashrate (if there was no hashrate limiter in play) offer us a little lower beginning hashrate a bit listed below 100 MH/s, however it falls to around 60 MH/s and not listed below that like with stock settings. So, efficiency sensible mining Ethereum (if there was no synthetic hashrate limiter) the RTX 3080 Ti must’ve been generally efficient in providing the exact same hashrate as an RTX 3090 does presently. Something around 100 MH/s with stock settings and about 120 MH/s with clocked memory and lowered power use might’ve been possible, however rather we are getting simply around half of that in truth.
Now, Nvidia is speaking about Ethereum mining hashrate limiter, though some other memory extensive crypto mining algorithms may likewise be impacted as we currently understand, however there are still other algorithms that will be providing the complete hashrate with no 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 rewarding than ETH on this specific GPU, if the synthetic ETH hashrate limiter was not present mining ETH would’ve been more rewarding. So, the brand-new Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is not going to be an appealing choice for Ethereum miners, though some other crypto miners not into ETH may be interested, however we are seeing beginning rates for the Ti when it comes to the non-Ti variation where offered. And unlike miners, players will not be extremely pleased to purchase these inflated rates, do not forget nevertheless that players will be getting efficiency extremely near to that of the much greater priced (for the minute) RTX 3090 GPUs.
The New Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 Ti that must likewise be striking the marketplace in a couple of days from now is likewise going to provide a good upgrade in regards to hardware specifications over the older RTX 3070 GPU, however similar to the RTX 3080 Ti it will likewise feature synthetic Ethereum hashrate limiter. The most significant upgrade for the brand-new RTX3 070 Ti over the old non-Ti design is the brand-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. Once again, some other memory extensive algorithms besides Ethash may be impacted too, though not all, and GPU extensive mining will most likely not suffer and the efficiency there must be a little much better than on RTX 3070.
