NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 cryptocurrency performance
We have been asked by many readers to provide benchmark results of GeForce RTX 3080 in NiceHash mining. The RTX 3080 is benchmarked at 73-74 MH/s with the DaggerHashimoto algorithm, depending on a miner.
In the output screen, the card reaches around 81 MH/s. With memory overclocked to the maximum the hashing rate increases to 84-89 MH/s. This is at 100% power limit. We attached values for other power limits below.
For comparison the Radeon RX 5700 series offer around 50-54 MH/s in ETH DaggerHashimoto mining, which is also comparable to GeForce RTX 2080 Ti at around 54 MH/s.
Dagger-Hashimoto is an initial version of the Ethreum Ethash mining algorithm. This is a memory-hard algorithm that was designed to be ASIC-resistant.
|NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 ETH (Dagger-Hashimoto)|
|Power Limit||Board Power||Hash Rate (Stock)||Hash Rate (OC)|
|100%||~320W||~81.2 MH/s||~89.1 MH/s|
|90%||~290W||~81.3 MH/s||~89.5 MH/s|
|80%||~255W||~80.9 MH/s||~88.4 MH/s|
|70%||~225W||~80.7 MH/s||~87.8 MH/s|
|65%||~210W||~79.8 MH/s||~86.0 MH/s|
|60%||~193W||~60.2 MH/s||~61.3 MH/s|
Please note, this was only a quick attempt to get the hashing values, not a full long-term benchmark:
The 92-93 MH/s hash rate was only seen for a short period of time.
