EVGA has provided a sweet BIOS update for RTX 3080 Ti LHR card. It specifically improves Ethereum mining hashrate via solving the power lock issue during mining process. Obviously, crypto miners prefer efficiency more than any hashrate gains due to high electricity cost. However, obtaining more hashrate at relatively low power consumption means magical sweet deal.
Initial findings about fresh BIOS solution for RTX 3080 Ti power lock problem came from CryptoDonkeyMiner YT channel who easily gained 90MH/s out of EVGA custom cooled card when updated BIOS with Windows 10 OS. But then, big risk was taken by Red Panda Mining channel content in which HiveOS Linux based BIOS update takes place. Luckily, Red Panda Miner was able to unlock 91MH/s whopping hashrate performance from own EVGA card successfully.

Astonishing 91MH/s hashrate of RTX 3080 Ti is achievable under well-ventilated cold room. Nevertheless, best settings for RTX 3080 Ti HiveOS mining according to Red Panda Mining includes following numbers:
- lock core clock at 1200MHz
- increase memory clock at 2600MHz
- leave power limit at default values
- NBMiner LHR 74.0 enabled
