NVidia is ‘Nerfing’ the RTX 30xx GPU’s for Ethereum Mining – It Comes with Its Downsides

Recently, NVidia announced in their blog that the company is implementing a new “feature” to their RTX 3060 and future cards. This new implementation will detect mining-related operations and limit the GPU resources, thus reducing mining speed. What’s going on? So far, the only affected cryptocurrency is Ethereum. The hashrate reduction is a solid 50%. According to NVidia, the reason for this ‘nerf’ is to decrease the demand for new-gen GPUs in the mining community, and fight the current gaming GPU shortage. we’re taking an important step to help ensure GeForce GPUs end up in the hands of gam ..read more

RTX 3080 Mining Hashrate Review

3y ago
The RTX 3080 is widely praised as one of the best gaming GPU’s to the date. Not only it’s more powerful than the RTX 2080, it’s also cheaper, making it undeniable a better bang for the buck. Since the card is only a few months old, little is known about its mining performance. Luckily for me, one of my friends happened to assemble a monster gaming rig with an Gigabyte RTX 3080 VISION OC 10G, and a new gen Ryzen 5 5600x. That beast of a PC can run Call of Duty Warzone at 240 fps average. The man was nice enough to let me test his GPU on several mining algos. Note: I will be getting my ha ..read more

Almost three years ago, I have posted my first guide on how to host your own Storj node. Today, I’d like to make a follow up article and share my experience with Storj so far. Why Did I Choose Storj? There are many decentralized storage platforms available on the interwebs. Back in 2017, Storj was one of the most promising projects. Right from its beginning, it had a clear goal, a well-defined roadmap, and a team that was doing work. One of the selling points for me was that Storj was nailing their milestones and delivering exactly what they promised. Storj’s bigger competitor is SIA, a plat ..read more

As a miner, you have already noticed how your profit from mining was reduced by half yesterday. Your hashpower, as well as the network’s remained the same however the reward per mined block dropped by 50%, from 12.5 to 6.25.

The first one happened in November 2012 when the reward went from 50 to 25, and the second one happened in July 2016 when the reward decreased to 12.5. The halving takes place ever ..read more
