CryptoDonkeyMiner, the mining expert at YouTube, has discovered a new way to boost the mining performance of NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3080 Ti display cards. The post shared by the miner talks about the method of flashing the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti vBIOS to a specific GeForce RTX 3090 OEM model made by Dell. This change could potentially increase the mining performance of the RTX 3080 Ti above 110 MH/s.
The NVFlash utility is required to perform the operation and update the BIOS with Dell’s GeForce RTX 3090 software. The mentioned method only works with Dell and Alienware GeForce RTX 3080 Ti products for now. It is also difficult to say that this method is a very safe way to improve mining performance. So everything is the responsibility of the user who made the vBIOS change.
Some miners may be upset that this cheat does not currently work on any other brand. About a month ago, we talked about another GeForce RTX 3080 Ti mining method that increased performance by 21%. This path works on any GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, and mining performance can be increased up to 91 MH/s thanks to the EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti XC3 BIOS.
CryptoDonkeyMiner reports that it tried this last method with Dell and Alienware and achieved ETH hash rates over 110 MH/s. As you can imagine, this process is a bit risky. During the vBIOS process, the video card may brick and become unusable.
