Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 mining limiter has an embarrassingly easy workaround


A rare glimmer of hope in the ongoing Nvidia GeForce RTX 30-series stock shortage came when the latest card in the range, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060, launched with an added limiter on its digital currency mining efficiency. Sadly, it seems there’s already a way to bypass it — and it involves Nvidia’s own drivers.

The idea behind the hash rate limiter, which halves the GeForce RTX 3060’s Ethereum mining capabilities, was that it would mean fewer miners would snap up the already minimal stock, leaving more for actual PC gamers. But as first reported by Chinese site PC Watch, the limiter is disabled by simply installing Nvidia’s GeForce 470.05 beta drivers.
