NVIDIA’s recently introduced GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card implemented a mining protection mechanism Ethereum cryptocurrencies. As a result, shortly after the miner was launched, the mining efficiency decreased by approximately 50%.
However, later they started messages appearthat artisans were able to circumvent this protection. It didn’t even require changing the BIOS driver. And now there is information that the new beta version of the 470.05 driver increases the efficiency of Ethereum mining for GeForce RTX 3060 video cards and unlocks the full performance under such loads. And this again makes this model attractive to miners. Although even NVIDIA’s current protection implementation lowers the hash rate only when Ethereum is mined. At the same time, other altcoins are mined with a consistently high level of efficiency.
The 470.05 driver is designed for developers to test Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) performance and new features, such as OpenCL 3.0 support. It appears that NVIDIA is not entirely sure about its software limitations that reduce mining performance on GeForce RTX 3060 video cards. It cannot be ruled out that, in addition to mining, this protection reduced the efficiency of the cards. video on some other tasks, forcing the company to abandon him.
NVIDIA has not yet commented on this information.
