Recent primary data on GeForce RTX 3080 performance in the mining of Ethereum cryptovoltaic has been generally confirmed. Without overclocking, the card delivers about 81 Mh/s at 100% power limit. Acceleration allows you to increase the index to 89 Mh / s. At the same time, the performance is virtually unchanged if you lower the power limit to 65%.
However, even with a limit of 65% card consumption exceeds 200 W, which is very large, and already 100% of the figure is about 320 W, and such a card is likely to suit only those miners who have “free” or very affordable electricity. Perhaps it is the very high power consumption that will save gamers from the deficit that could be created by miners. However, rumors are already talking about a very small batch of new cards this year.
