executed a company Nvidia developed a special hash reduction system for Ethereum mining on its new GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card series last month.
This system was supposed to reduce mining performance by about 50 percent, but multiple reports now claim crypto companies have bypassed protection.
Revealed Site Japanese PC Watch for the first time that Nvidia protection can be bypassed without the need to modify the driver or BIOS.
Confirmed Site German ComputerBase has since reported PC Watch, revealing the latest test driver 470.05 From Nvidia automatically unlocks performance for most owners of the GeForce RTX 3060 series graphics cards.
He also supported Andreas Schilling, editor at Site Hardwareluxx, these results, too.
And the beta driver appears to unlock Ethereum’s mining performance across a variety of GeForce RTX 3060 series graphics cards, which was likely not what Nvidia had planned for for its test program.
The 470.05 driver is designed for developers to test WSL performance and new features, such as support for OpenCL 3.0.
Nvidia originally restricted mining performance across the GeForce RTX 3060 series of graphics cards in an effort to direct cryptocurrency miners away from these cards.
Nvidia offers a new CMP cryptocurrency mining wizard for Ethereum miners instead.
And the beta driver bypassing Ethereum’s mining restrictions is sure to make the cards even more attractive to cryptocurrency miners now.
Nvidia was confident of its software’s limitations on mining performance for its GeForce RTX 3060 series of graphics cards.
And theHe said (Brian Del Rizzo) Bryan Del Rizzo, NVIDIA’s chief communications officer, last month: It’s not just a driver. There is a secure connection between the driver, graphics card chip, and BIOS firmware that prevents the hash rate limiter from being removed.
