GeForce RTX 3080 Ti was tested in ETH mining. Bad news for players

There are many indications that after a few months of unconfirmed information, we will finally see the late launch of the RTX 3080 Ti. According to several independent sources, the card will be on the market in May. Unfortunately, there are many indications that this model may also be of interest to cryptocurrency miners.


The alleged specifications of the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics have been circulating on the network for a long time. Now in & nbspserwis VideoCardz the first image of the new layout from the Ampere family. It is a chip called GA102-225.

The RTX 3080 Ti graphics card will be equipped with nbsp10240 CUDA modules and 12GB GDDR6X memory. The base clock frequency should be 1365MHz and the boost mode should be 1665MHz. These are completely disappointing results, but they are most likely not a coincidence. Nvidia definitely doesn’t want its most powerful model (RTX 3090) to lose its feel. The 12GB GDDR6X memory appears to be set at 1188MHz by default, confirming the 19Gbps ​​speed (similar to & nbspRTX 3080).


In the screenshot provided by the website sources Video Cards Not only do we find the RTX 3080 Ti’s specifications, we also find its performance in Ethereum drilling. The card is optimized for reduced power consumption – nbspTDP downsized to 278W and memory clock is 21.4Gbps. The card is capable of ticking at 118.9 Mh / s, so that’s a pretty nice number.

This performance will definitely grab the attention of cryptocurrency miners. However, it must be taken into account that in the above screenshot, we can see that the drivers are not recognizing the card. Nvidia shipped test copies even before the latest software update was released. Therefore, this model does not contain a system selector that reduces Ethereum’s mining capabilities.
