Nvidia GTX RTX 3080 Leaked – Twice the Hashrate of an RTX 2080 at the Same Price

GPU mining might finally be back. Nvidia announced the release of the RTX 3000 series that feature a massive 50-80% performance over their RTX 2000 counterparts. Best part is, the price point is the same – the card is available on September 17, starting at $699 for the Founders Edition.

Mining Performance

Nvidia leaked some hashrates for Ethereum (DaggerHashimoto) mining. The RTX series are based on the new Nvidia Ampere graphics architecture that features better raw performance and power efficiency.

Compared to the RTX 2080 Ti (54 MH/s top), the RTX 3080 outputs 75 MH/s with factory settings and up to 93 Mh/s when overclocked. My only concern is power consumption, with the 3080 having a 28% higher TDP than the 2080 on default settings, and up to 60% higher when overclocked.

(*) For reference only

From what we know so far, the RTX 3080 features higher hashrate, same price point, and roughly the same power efficiency as the 2080.

As usual, the Founder’s Edition is probably not the best model for mining. It features only two coolers. Personally, I will wait until MSI or Gigabyte release a version with three coolers.

I will be testing my RTX 3080 on all the popular GPU minable coins and posting the results here soon, so stay tuned!
