Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 Barely Produces 13+MH/s Ethereum Mining Hashrate Using NBMiner LHR Unlock

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 could only produce 13.66 MH/s of maximum Ethereum hashrate performance according to Videocardz and Twitter user @wnxod. Looks like Nvidia had some tweaking to do in LHR configuration to make miners’ hands not to touch the RTX 3050 budget GPU for gamers. With some overclock tuning miners might decrease it’s power consumptions below 80W.

For hungry crypto miners 13.66 MH/s of RTX 3050 is not profitable at all. Initially, Nvidia released full specs with chocking mining performance in memory bandwidth of 128-bit memory interface which is obviously may not look good even on other mining algorithms albeit having 8GB GDDR6 monster VRAM. However, Ravencoin miners would test RTX 3050 potential in KawPOW ASIC-Proof algorithm due to it’s complex random sub-algorithm structure.

Anyways, Ethash Ethereum mining algorithm is outdated mining code with many ASIC miners had already manipulated it throughout half a decade even though Ethereum developers boasted that Ethash was an ASIC-proof revolution.

When Proof-Of-Stake Ethereum phase kicks in, the crypto miners will be forced to switch to other coins like FLUX, ERGO, RVN or even Ethereum Classic might work out with RTX 3050 with 8GB VRAM. Only time and crypto market conditions are able to provide GPU shortage prediction in 2022.
