Most Profitable Coins To Mine With Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080

The Nvidia RTX 3080 is the latest graphics card of the GeForce 30 series by Nvidia released in September 2020. The card is powered by the enhanced Ampere architecture that provides top performance. It features 10 GB of GDDR6X memory, 8704 CUDA cores, and a boost clock of 1.71 GHz. It exceeds the RTX 3070 with 8 GB of memory but is far from the RTX 3090 with 24 GB, the leading graphics card of the series.

The RTX 3080 was launched at $820 on October 6. Like other Nvidia GPUs, the RTX 3080 can mine Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Ravencoin, Zcoin, and Cortex. Plus, there is enough memory to mine Grin on the more demanding Cuckatoo32 algorithm.

If you have the LHR (Lite Hash Rate) graphics card model you could unlock the 100% of your card potential using the latest mining software versions. Use the 512.15 driver on Windows and 510.60 on Linux. For more details check the post How to Fully Unlock Nvidia LHR Graphics Cards with NBMiner: Experiment Results.

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Payback Period

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 payback period depends on its efficiency (hashrate), selling price, and energy consumption. The estimate features Nvidia recommended retail price - $860, but you can change it to the price you actually paid for your GPU. The energy expenses are not taken into account in the calculation. The GPU hashrate corresponds to optimal overclocking parameters. Make sure to read: GPU Overclocking on Different Algorithms.

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Overclocking for Mining

To maximize hash rate you are probably going to need to configure additional settings. Choose an optimal GPU overclocking value to maximize hash rate and keep energy consumption at an acceptable level. Algorithms may require core overclocking, memory overclocking, or both. The main overclocking principle is stable work and maximum hash rate at an acceptable energy consumption level. It’s important to remember that each GPU is unique. If for one it is possible to overclock the core to 2000 MHz, for a similar one you may be able to overclock only to 1900 MHz. Make sure to adjust overclocking settings for each card individually.
