Nvidia's anti-Ethereum Mining Lock is a Joke, and we aren't laughing

Nvidia broke their own mining lock...

Read more about Nvidia breaking its own RTX 3060 mining lock.

Decided to try my 3060 Ti (FE)

A "Quick and dirty optimised" setup with just a 60% power limit and memory at 7.7GHz (+900MHz):

EDIT: Checked the translation of original article and realised the good quality screenshot is with the limit on, looks like it can hit ~40MH/s but while consuming a lot more power than it takes the Ti to do more, so I guess the 3060 normal still is quite far off desirable for this use case

I read elsewhere that it will only work if there’s only one GPU in the system and a display must be connected. Windows only and one has to register with Nvidia to access the developer drivers.

Targeting the multi-GPU setups rather than the average consumer seems a better aproach to me. Hope this is what they will do in the long run.
