Nvidia assures that miners will not bypass the protection against Ethereum mining implemented in the GeForce RTX 3060.
Of course, time will tell, but now you can make sure that the protection is working. Blogger CryptoLeo got hold of a Zotac GeForce RTX 3060 adapter and tested it in mining.
As you can see, despite the lack of a fresh driver with support for this adapter, the mechanism for reducing performance in mining works. After a couple of minutes, the video card’s performance dropped from 41.5 MH / s to 22 MH / s (25-26 MH / s in overclocking), that is, just about half.
True, all this really only works when mining Ethereum, so it’s not a fact that miners will abandon the new Nvidia card.
