The power of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 tested in cryptocurrency mining
The recently introduced NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 video card significantly exceeds the performance of the previous generation and allows you to run modern games in 4K with high fps. As it turned out, the new GPU has great potential in the field of cryptocurrency mining.
The developers of the NiceHash cloud mining service announced in their Discord channel that the first GeForce RTX 3080 video card has already been recorded in their network. Users immediately began to express their assumptions about its capabilities. Among the options were 72 Mh/s (megahash/second) and even 120 Mh/s. Real indicators were high, but not record-breaking — about 80 Mh/s for Ethereum mining. For comparison, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti provides about 50 Mh/s.
Although the new GeForce RTX 3080 produces good results in mining, AMD's Radeon VII shows about the same 80 Mh/s, and overclocking can achieve hundreds.
