Nvidia’s RTX 30 Series graphics cards have been the subject of endless speculation, rumors, and even ridicule since the company first announced that it will ship its latest GPUs with an integrated mining selector (ETH).
As a result of a series of bugs, the mining selector on the Nvidia RTX 3060 card was first revoked by malicious hackers and then removed entirely by an Nvidia driver update.
The latest series of leaks now indicates that Nvidia’s next flagship GPU version – the RTX 3080 Ti – can be shipped without any restrictions on cryptocurrency. Leaked screenshots first discovered by VideoCardz.com show the 3080 Ti for ether mining with a hash rate of 118.9 megabytes per second – more than four times what the defective cards were originally intended to use.
It should be noted that there is no confirmation that the GPU in the screenshots is the same GPU that Nvidia is preparing for the release. Pattern leakage can be a model even before a company decides to implement its production parameters.
Additionally, past mistakes made by Nvidia led to the crypto card counter company to consider a complete overhaul of the 30 series range, so the performance of the card in question does not necessarily represent who is expected to hit the shelves. Shops. Could you.
With an estimated hash rate of 118.9 MH / s, the RTX 3080 Ti can be a very profitable card for ether miners, even in western countries.
The average electricity costs in China are about $ 0.08 per kilowatt-hour per household, which means that the SOE will make a profit of about $ 378 per month, or $ 4,611 per year.
In the US, where the average electricity costs are around $ 0.13 per kilowatt-hour per household, the card will still generate $ 4,488 per year, or just over 2 ETH based on current prices. The GPU is expected to be priced at around $ 999 upon release, but another insane demand by crypto miners could once again cause demand to outpace supply, which in turn drives up prices.
