nvidia confirms it accidentally rtx ethereum

Trata-se da atualização Nvidia GeForce 470.05 e foi distribuída para programadores através da plataforma Windows Insider.

De acordo com o site ComputerBase, basta apenas a instalação do driver para garantir a mineração da Ethereum a um nível máximo. E nem é necessário atualizar a BIOS.

No entanto, ainda está por determinar se esta foi uma decisão consciente da Nvidia, ou somente um erro técnico.

Seja como for, quem minera tem então aqui uma porta aberta de oportunidades com o poder da GeForce RTX 3060. Ou seja, basta instalarem a versão 470.05 do driver e ignorar outras atualizações.

Curiosamente este facto também contradiz Bryan del Rizzo, Diretor de Relações Públicas da Nvidia que afirmou que o limite não estava apenas relacionado com drivers.

Hi Ryan. It’s not just a driver thing.

Nvidia confirms it accidentally unlocked rtx 3060 ethereum mining

NVIDIA confirms the ETH limiter on RTX 3060 was removed accidentally

A day after the news broke that RTX 3060 mining limiter has been removed, the company responsible for this situation has released a short statement. This company is NVIDIA.

After initial reports that the Ethereum hash rate limiter on GeForce RTX 3060 mid-range *gaming* graphics card has been bypassed, NVIDIA has finally confirmed that the driver responsible for this situation was released inadvertently. NVIDIA has since removed the driver, but the damage has already been done.

It was discovered that GeForce 470.05 driver that was released only to software developers who are enrolled in the NVIDIA program, actually removed the hash rate limiter that NVIDIA was eager to announce as a cure for the GPU mining craze.

Crypto Miners Fool Nvidia’s Anti-Mining Limiter With $6 HDMI Dummy Plug

Bypassing the “unhackable”

In general I think any type of “downgrading” or “nerfing” or “disabling” is always a bad idea, at least in software – I’m not just talking about NVidia. But also NVidia. For years they were never supporting the current release of Fedora, they were always some two version numbers behind. But now things broke all the time, because the current Fedora always ships with a gcc version that couldn’t be used with CUDA.
Now people either a) fudged the version number in a config file, and that was pretty unsafe, but in most cases still worked well, b) needed to several serious contortions to their installations to install an old gcc (hacks, manual installs, copra repos, asf.).


Nvidia made a big deal about reducing the hash rate of Ethereum mining on its new RTX 3060 graphics card last month. A special system was supposed to make the RTX 3060 undesirable for cryptominers, but Nvidia has now confirmed that it has accidentally unlocked those restrictions with a new driver.

“A developer driver inadvertently included code used for internal development which removes the hash rate limiter on RTX 3060 in some configurations,” says an Nvidia spokesperson in a statement to The Verge. “The driver has been removed.”

While Nvidia has now removed the driver, the genie is out of the bottle. Nvidia’s latest 470.05 beta driver automatically unlocks performance for most RTX 3060 cards, boosting hashing rates for Ethereum mining.

A nova placa gráfica GeForce RTX 3060 foi recentemente lançada e trouxe uma novidade que não agradou aos adeptos das criptomoedas. A Nvidia bloqueou o desempenho deste equipamento para barrar a capacidade e performance na atividade de mineração das moedas digitais.

No entanto, muitos esperavam que este limite fosse desbloqueado pelos utilizadores. Mas, curiosamente, este bloqueio fica desativado com o recente driver da própria Nvidia.

Se não está a par do que estamos a falar, vamos fazer um breve resumo da situação.
Uma vez que os gamers não estão a conseguir comprar placas gráficas Nvidia devido sobretudo à compra destas GPUs para a mineração de criptomoedas, a fabricante tomou uma decisão.

Em primeiro lugar anunciou um chip exclusivo para a mineração, o Nvidia CMP.

I complained about this on various online forums and usually got replies along the lines of “well, it’s difficult with the many distros …”, well, generally: yes, but you are NVidia. A global company, billions in sales, and can’t afford Linux release managers that can cover all distros. They make it sound as if they were some poor mom and pop shop.

I admit things got better in the more recent past, about the time the HPC package was released. But for years they didn’t care about fixing things: not supporting current gcc, or even fixing bugs in the CUDA samples. I’ve reported a bug here in this forum, and it’s still not fixed in the current CUDA release.
It seems nobody from NVidia is reading these forums. VERY negligent in every way. So, if this is really compay-internal dysfunctionality obsession (as it manifests otherwise), this may have been a “legit” case of “oh, we forgot”.
The protections reduced the hash rate of Ethereum with the RTX 3060, making it an unideal component for cryptocurrency miners.

This is no longer the case, as an Nvidia developer driver was accidentally released that removes the hash rate limiter. Nvidia readily states that the release of the developer driver is accidental, and has removed the driver from the shops. Nothing removed from the internet is truly gone: the driver has been uploaded to third-party websites. The hash rate limiter was claimed to be immovable by Nvidia, which similarly boasted the hash rate limiter did not affect performance for the graphics card.

The protections were defeated within its first month on the market, by Nvidia’s own hand.

This software was never publically available, but miners and enthusiasts were quick to notice that the mining limiter does not work with this particular driver. NVIDIA today confirmed that this was an internal development driver that had hash rate limiter disabled in some configurations:

A developer driver inadvertently included code used for internal development which removes the hash rate limiter on RTX 3060 in some configurations.

The driver has been removed.

— NVIDIA

As noted in the statement, the driver does not work for all graphics cards. It also does not work for graphics cards that do not have a display connector attached to a monitor or if the graphics card is used with a riser.

The ongoing feud between cryptocurrency miners and gamers often has both sides frustrated, with GPU manufacturers squarely between the two sides. Now, Nvidia’s most recent introduction of the RTX 3060 seems to favor the cryptocurrency miners, after an apparent gaffe rendered protection moot.

The RTX 3060 was shipped with mining protection that, Nvidia stated, was implemented to ensure that gamers received cards from the current generation. This has been done to curry favor with gamers, frustrated after multiple launches of the Ampere series only went to cryptocurrency miners. Few have been able to retrieve the Ampere generation due to a myriad of supply problems.

Além disso, também limitou a taxa de hash nas novas gráficas GeForce RTX 3060 de forma a quebrar o seu desempenho para a extração das moedas digitais. No entanto, na semana passada noticiámos que, supostamente, alguns hackers já teriam conseguido desativar este limite nas RTX 3060.

RTX 3060: driver da Nvidia remove o limite de hash imposto pela Nvidia

Pode parecer estranho, mas, curiosamente, o limite imposto pela Nvidia para que a gráfica GeForce RTX 3060 não apresentasse o melhor desempenho na extração de criptomoedas foi agora desbloqueado pela própria Nvidia.

O desbloqueio é então conseguido através da instalação de um driver específico disponibilizado pela própria marca.
