NVIDIA officially announced last week that it would reduce the mining efficiency of the RTX 3060 by 50% in order to make it available to mainstream gamers.
Today, RTX 3060 has been on the market, and NVIDIA has officially launched the 461.72 WHQL graphics card driver, which will be equipped with this anti mining function.
NVIDIA RTX 3060 anti mining drive released: reduces mining efficiency by 50%
It home has learned that the 461.72 WHQL video card driver will detect the specific attributes of the Ethereum cryptocurrency mining algorithm, and limit the hash rate or cryptocurrency mining efficiency to about 50%. NVIDIA spokesman Brian del Rizzo said that the limit of halving mining efficiency is not as simple as a driver, but the result of a secure handshake between the driver, RTX 3060 chip and BIOS firmware to prevent someone from bypassing the limit.
The new video card driver also fixes some game problems and display problems. Users can download the 461.72 WHQL game ready driver directly through geforce experience application or through the links listed below.
