GPU mining may lastly be again. Nvidia introduced the discharge of the RTX 3000 series that characteristic a large 50-80% efficiency over their RTX 2000 counterparts. Better part is, the worth level is similar – the cardboard is offered on September 17, beginning at $699 for the Founders Version.
Nvidia leaked some hashrates for Ethereum (DaggerHashimoto) mining. The RTX collection are primarily based on the brand new Nvidia Ampere graphics structure that options higher uncooked efficiency and energy effectivity.
In comparison with the RTX 2080 Ti (54 MH/s top), the RTX 3080 outputs 75 MH/s with manufacturing facility settings and as much as 93 Mh/s when overclocked. My solely concern is energy consumption, with the 3080 having a 28% greater TDP than the 2080 on default settings, and as much as 60% greater when overclocked.
GTX RTX 3080 Specs
|Mannequin||RTX 3080||RTX 2080Ti||RTX 2080|
|NVIDIA CUDA Cores||8704||4352||2944|
|Increase Clock||1.71 GHz||1.54 GHz||1.71 GHz|
|Reminiscence Dimension||10 GB||11 GB||8 GB|
|ETH Hashrate*||75 MH/s – 93 MH/s||54 MH/s||40 MH/s|
|Worth & Purchase||$699||$1,100||$780|
(*) For reference solely
From what we all know to this point, the RTX 3080 options greater hashrate, similar worth level, and roughly the identical energy effectivity because the 2080.
As standard, the Founder’s Version might be not one of the best mannequin for mining. It options solely two coolers. Personally, I’ll wait till MSI or Gigabyte launch a model with three coolers.
I shall be testing my RTX 3080 on all the favored GPU minable coins and posting the outcomes right here quickly, so keep tuned!
