    GeForce RTX 3070 Ti Crypto Mining: Weak in Ethereum, Productive in Other Cryptos

    The GeForce RTX 3070 Ti wasted no time in assaulting the upper echelons of our GPU benchmarks hierarchy. Is it one of the best graphics cards? Probably, if you can find one in stock (it goes on sale June 10). But how does it fare as a cryptocurrency mining solution? Not too well, assuming you’re hoping to mine Ethereum. Other coins may still be viable, however.

    Nvidia’s crackdown on Ethereum mining came in the shape of its improved anti-mining limiter. The algorithm works as intended and immediately gimps the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti’s hash rate from around 80 MH/s down to 40 MH/s as soon as the Ethereum workload kicks in. The performance is basically on the same level as Nvidia’s CMP 50HX unit, so it makes little sense for cryptocurrency miners to purchase the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti — that is, unless someone cracks Nvidia’s anti-mining mechanism.
