NVIDIA limited the hash rate of the GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card to keep gamers happy. A group of Chinese crypto miners managed to overcome this limitation and run the graphics card at 45 MH / s.
NVIDIA has made a statement that will delight the players in the past weeks. The graphics card manufacturer limited the ‘hashrate’ of the GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card, which is the favorite of the gamers. This would ensure that crypto miners would not attack all GeForce RTX 3060 models on the market, as this was a step to prevent crypto mining with graphics cards. We say it would, because NVIDIA was not very successful in this regard.
NVIDIA’s effort was for crypto miners to leave the RTX 3060s to gamers, but the desired situation is not likely to be achieved. This is because a group of Chinese crypto miners and hackers overcame NVIDIA’s hashrate limit on the RTX 3060. This group has managed to mine crypto with the RTX 3060.
Crypto mined at a speed of 45 MH / s:
With the hashrate restriction made by NVIDIA, the device would only be able to produce the power to mine Ethereum, a famous ‘altcoin’. However, players and crypto miners had the idea that no crypto mining could be done with this graphics card anymore. It seems that both this thought and this defense mechanism have been overcome.
With the limitation, it is expected that only 20 MH / s can be mining Ethereum, while a Chinese group managed to run 8 RTX 3060s at 45 MH / s by connecting them to the platform. Of course, the crypto mining done here was not done on Ethereum, but on a different altcoin called Conflux. However, people who want to do crypto mining and have RTX 3060 may be happy with this news. Gamers who want to buy a GeForce RTX 3060 may not be satisfied with this situation.
