Did NVIDIA back down from ‘crypto setting’?


Nvidia new last month RTX 3060 Ethereum mining on graphics card hash implemented a special system to reduce the rate. Normally, this system’s mto approximate the mining performance. 50 percent it had to limit. However, according to many reports, the claim that crypto miners skipped protection raised the question of whether Nvidia stepped back in the crypto setting.

Japanese site PC Watchfirst, Nvidia’s protections to install a driver or BIOSIt turned out that it could be overcome without the need to change it. If ComputerBase PC Watch‘s report, and Nvidia’s latest 470.05 beta driver many RTX 3060Turns out that it automatically turns the performance on. Later Hardwareluxxis an editor at Andreas Schilling also supported these findings.

Beta driver unlocks performance

Beta driver, various RTX 3060 on your cards Ethereum unlocks mining performance. Of course, this was not what Nvidia had planned for its test drivers. 470.05 driver, developers Linux for Windows Subsystem (WSL) performance and OpenCL 3.0 It is stated that it is designed for testing new features such as support.

As you remember, Nvidia was initially RTX 3060 mining performance in order to keep crypto miners away from buying cards. The company instead Ethereum a new for miners Cryptocurrency Mining Processor (CMP) sundu.

rtx 3060 mining

Nvidia seemed confident of software restrictions on RTX 3060 mining performance. Bryan Del Rizzo, Nvidia’s head of communications, last month; “This is not just a driver issue. Driver, RTX 3060 has secure system that prevents removal of hybrid rate limiter between silicon and BIOS ” said.

Nvidia is expected to make a statement on this issue in the near future.
