Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 With Full Unrestricted ETH Mining Hashrate, But Only With Single GPU in a Gaming PC

It appears {that 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 may be 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 are able to verify that it’s certainly working and you may get the complete mining hashrate for Ethereum with this driver, nonetheless there may be nonetheless a catch… learn on under with the most recent updates on what and the way it works.

We are 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 can examine what efficiency does a Asus ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3060 OC Edition handle to give you with the restricted hashrate common drivers, although the restrict shouldn’t be for all crypto algorithms, however for memory-intensive ones similar to Ethash and VertHash as an illustration.

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 presently nonetheless accessible for Windows solely, however hey, it really works and also you get the complete mining hashrate mining Ethereum and different algorithms similar to 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 lowered in half sub-400 with the common driver.

Update: It appears that this “workaround” remains to be considerably restricted to simply 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…

Further 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 situations 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 in reality 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 might’ve completed is to detect that you’re utilizing a single video card in a gaming setup after which no limitations, even for mining shall be enforced, whereas if extra GPUs on a slower PCI-E interface are current then it is a mining rig and the hashrate shall be lowered.

To obtain the Nvidia developer driver model 470.05 (free registration required)…
