What is the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 GPU mining hashrate?
Great for gaming and crypto mining
When using DaggerHashimoto and configuring the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 to optimal settings, you'll easily get a hashrate of more than 95MH/s. That's at about 240W, which is pretty solid when you consider an RTX 3060 Ti would achieve about 60MH/s at 130W. It's always important to have your GPU running below 60C if possible.
So, how much does that translate into money? According to NiceHash, which uses actual mining data from connected mining rigs, you can expect to see around $7 per day. This is taking into account a charge of $0.10 per kWh of electricity and may not be accurate with the latest crypto prices.
With a motherboard, processor, RAM, and storage also up and running, you should expect around $6 per day as a better estimation. This totals $42 per week and $168 per month in profit. If that wasn't enough, you'd be looking at around $2,016 per year with these figures. It's clear to see why so many are looking to use their GPUs for cryptocurrency pool mining.
Earn a passive income from your gaming PC
Have a gaming PC that you use quite often but don't game on all the time? You may want to look at using the best graphics card available to you and mine some cryptocurrency. It's possible (and more lucrative) to go it alone, but I prefer to let software handle mostly everything for me, which is why I recommend NiceHash.
I've already gone into detail on how to mine crypto and earn passive income with your gaming PC, but all you need to do is download and run NiceHash, create an account, and let it do the rest for you. You can then transfer profits paid to you in Bitcoin to a wallet of your choice.
To mine or to game?
Not only can this graphics card play games at 4K, but it's also really good at mining cryptocurrency.
