It appears that evidently a workaround to the artificially enforced hashrate limiter for the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 GPUs mining Ethereum has been found and it’s fairly easy apparently. You simply want to make use of the developer driver model 470.05 the place there’s apparently no hashrate limiting being utilized, not like with the common GeForce video driver that you’d usually obtain for these video playing cards. This has been reported by some customers and we will affirm that it’s certainly working and you will get the complete mining hashrate for Ethereum with this driver, nevertheless there’s nonetheless a catch… learn on under with the newest updates on what and the way it works.
We’re getting 47 MH/s Ethash mining hashrate utilizing the Nvidia developer driver model 470.05 with PhoenixMiner mining Ethereum, with the next settings in MSI Afterburner: 70% TDP, -500 MHz GPU, +1000 MHz video reminiscence. You’ll be able to test what efficiency does a Asus ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3060 OC Edition handle to offer you with the restricted hashrate common drivers, although the restrict shouldn’t be for all crypto algorithms, however for memory-intensive ones reminiscent of Ethash and VertHash as an example.
The downside is that the Nvidia developer driver model 470.05 does require you to register on the Nvidia web site as developer and is at the moment nonetheless accessible for Home windows solely, however hey, it really works and also you get the complete mining hashrate mining Ethereum and different algorithms reminiscent of Verthash utilized by Vertcoin that apparently additionally suffered from the hashrate limitation launched by Nvidia for the RTX 3060. For VTC mining with the above settings the hashrate we’re getting is round 810 KH/s as a substitute of the diminished in half sub-400 with the common driver.
Replace: It appears that evidently this “workaround” continues to be considerably restricted to only when utilizing a single RTX 3060 GPU linked to a monitor, with extra GPUs in a mining rig it doesn’t appear to work for full hashrate on all the video playing cards…
Additional researching into the matter with a single RTX 3060 GPU working with unrestricted hashrate, whereas a number of ones not working has revealed that there appear to be some circumstances met. Having a single RTX 3060 GPU linked on a ь8/x16 PCI-E slot (no extenders) and a monitor linked to it. This makes us consider that Nvidia didn’t the truth is neglect to implement the safety within the newest developer driver 370.05, however has as a substitute additional improved their safety mechanism as a substitute. What they may’ve achieved is to detect that you’re utilizing a single video card in a gaming setup after which no limitations, even for mining will probably be enforced, whereas if extra GPUs on a slower PCI-E interface are current then this can be a mining rig and the hashrate will probably be diminished.
