Identical 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 by way of specs to an RTX 3090 GPU, however with half the video reminiscence, so solely 12GB GDDR6X as a substitute of the total 24GB. For the brand new RTX 3080 Ti by way of CUDA cores there’s a very slight discount and reminiscence clocks too, however the reminiscence bus stays 384-bit, so in concept efficiency sensible it ought to be similar to an RTX 3090 and that goes not just for mining, however for gaming as nicely. There’s the Ethereum hashrate limiter nonetheless 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 reasonably priced and extra out there to avid gamers in comparison with RTX 3080… in concept.

Making an attempt to mine Ethereum (ETH) at inventory settings for the RTX 3080 Ti exhibits a beginning hashrate at about 100 MH/s that shortly drops all the way down to round 53-55 MH/s with the default setting because of the enforced hashrate limiter for mining ETH by Nvidia. The default settings for the RTX 3080 Ti from Palit/Gainward we’ve got 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 might also be affected in addition to we’ve got seen already with the RTX 3060 GPUs that had been the primary to introduce the hashrate limiting answer by Nvidia.

Going for optimized settings to cut back energy consumption for 265W and have larger hashrate (if there was no hashrate limiter in play) give us barely decrease beginning hashrate a bit beneath 100 MH/s, however it drops all the way down to round 60 MH/s and never beneath that like with inventory settings. So, efficiency sensible 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 doable, however as a substitute 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 total 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 just isn’t being artificially diminished, you’ll be getting about 48 MH/s hashrate for KawPoW with the inventory settings. And though this may make mining RVN extra worthwhile than ETH on this explicit GPU, if the bogus ETH hashrate limiter was not current mining ETH would’ve been extra worthwhile. So, the brand new Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti just isn’t going to be a sexy possibility 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 joyful to purchase at these inflated costs, don’t forget nonetheless that avid gamers will probably be getting efficiency very near that of the a lot larger priced (for the second) RTX 3090 GPUs.

The New Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 Ti that also needs to be hitting the market in a couple of days from now can also be going to supply a pleasant improve by way of {hardware} specs over the older RTX 3070 GPU, however identical to the RTX 3080 Ti it should additionally include synthetic Ethereum hashrate limiter. Essentially the most notable improve for the brand new RTX3 070 Ti over the previous non-Ti mannequin is the brand new quicker GDDR6X reminiscence which ought to in concept improve the mining efficiency for reminiscence intensive algorithm, however because of the Nvidia hashrate limiter Ethereum mining is not going to be benefiting a lot and in reality we count on to see decrease hashrate than on RTX 3070 because of the limiter in play. Once more, another reminiscence intensive algorithms moreover Ethash is likely to be affected as nicely, although not all, and GPU intensive mining will in all probability not undergo and the efficiency there ought to be barely higher than on RTX 3070.
