It looks like AMD’s upcoming Radeon RX 6600 XT might be a more viable option than most of NVIDIA’s RTX 30 series cards for Ether mining. Thanks to a recent leak from the Chiphell forums, we know that the RX 6600 XT will have an Ether mining capability of 30 MH/s. This is a fair bit lower than what the RX 5600 XT offers (~40 MH/s) and half as much as the RTX 3060 Ti’s 60 MH/s, but the updated hash limit on the RTX 30 series means that it’ll soon be higher than the RTX 3060, 3060 Ti and even the 3070.

Thanks to the stock of the older Navi and Turing GPUs being almost non-existent, this means that AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 series is actually going to be one of the better options for miners. The RX 6600 XT with a price tag of $299 and the RX 6700 XT for $479 offering higher Ethereum hash rates of 30 MH/s and 45 MH/s, respectively. In comparison, all the Ampere GPUs other than the RTX 3080 and 3090 will soon be limited to a hash rate of just 25 MH/s, all the while costing more too.
