NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is set to launch in the first week of June with a price tag of around $999 and marginally higher performance than the RTX 3080. It’ll be the second card after the RTX 3060 to come with an anti-miner nerf (from the launch day itself), limiting its Ethermining hash rate to half the original speed. As per a leak on Weibo, the RTX 3080 Ti has a hash rate of 58.04 MH/s even with the Ethereum mining block in place.
While this isn’t surprising considering that the RTX 3090 is capable of close to 120 MH/s in Ethereum, it’s still a testament to how well these cards perform in compute-bandwidth intensive tasks such as mining. In comparison, the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT has a hash rate of 61 MH/s. That’s half as much as a full-fledged GeForce RTX 3080 Ti/3090. The Turing-based GeForce RTX 2080 Ti manages around 60 MH/s despite having a much wider bus of 352-bit (RX 6900 XT has a 256-bit bus and the same GDDR6 memory standard).
Therefore, it can be concluded that the use of the much faster GDDR6X memory and 2x FP32 cores are the two primary reasons for the high mining capabilities of the RTX 30 series GPU.
