The beta driver that lifts the Ethereum mining limitation for RTX 3060 graphics cards has been removed.
NVIDIA was stunned by the past day by releasing a GeForce Beta driver that lifts an RTX 3060 Ethereum mining limitation. Following this development, the company removed the developer driver from the download page.
Of course, this has created a serious problem for NVIDIA. “A developer driver mistakenly included code that was used for internal development, removing the hash rate limiter on the RTX 3060 in some configurations,” the company said in its official statement. The driver has been removed. ” gave place to his statements.
The Ethereum hash rate limiter on the RTX 3060 graphics card may no longer matter, as the driver will be shared among the mining communities. On the other hand, there are some issues to be aware of for the driver-based workaround. For example, you cannot use booster cables. Therefore, there are no large interconnected mining setups and you need a single motherboard with many PCIe slots to get multiple RTXs. It should also be noted that the RTX 3060 operates at the highest mining rate of ~ 50MH / s. To be convinced that every card does something legitimate, fake HDMI connectors have to be used. How problematic these are for miners, it is also a matter of curiosity.
Let us remind you that NVIDIA wants to standardize the Ethereum mining limitation on future graphics cards. Whether the latest developments will have an impact on this decision and how to find a remedy for the vulnerability with the driver remains a mystery. For example, time will tell what the decision will be for the RTX 3080 Ti, which is expected to be restricted.
