Previously, NVIDIA released 470.05 developer driven, accidentally lifted the mining restriction of RTX 3060 and let RTX

3060 full blood was revived. Although 470.05 drive unlocked the mining limit of rtx3060, it is only limited to single card, and the mining limit cannot be broken through by double card or multi card.

The performance of RTX 3060 must be in PCI-E 8 × slot to play out, RTX

The output of interface will be detected during 3060 operation. Only when HDMI or DP interface output screen is detected, RTX 3060 will work normally, otherwise, the mining performance will still be limited.

With so many restrictions, NVIDIA’s clever miners have come up with ways to avoid it. First, the choice of the main board, since there are multiple PCI-E × 1 slots of the motherboard can not be used, then buy that there are multiple PCI-E

There are many such mainboards on the market for 3.0 × 8 slot motherboards, such as Giga g1.sniper 5, ASUS maximus VI extreme motherboard, etc.

As for the problem of interface output, there is a kind of HDMI virtual plug (about $6) on the market. If the virtual plug is connected to the HDMI interface of the graphics card, the graphics card will think that the screen has been output to the display.

South Korean miners have experimented with four RTX

3060 video card is connected with HDMI virtual plug, and driven by 470.05 developer of NVIDIA, it can dig mine with normal performance. In this way, a single RTX

The hash rate of 3060 is restored to 48MHs, and the calculation system of four awesome card can reach 192MHs.

Although the unpublished geforce RTX 3080 Ti and other graphics cards will also have mining restrictions, it can be easily removed in this way. It seems that miners are going to be crazy about sweeping four PCI-E’s

3.0 × 8 motherboard, second-hand market such motherboard prices are estimated to rise.
