Crypto Miners Fool Nvidia’s Anti-Mining Limiter With $6 HDMI Dummy Plug


Sometimes the toughest problems have the easiest solutions. Nvidia might claim that its hash limiter on the GeForce RTX 3060 is unhackable, but that doesn’t mean that a workaround doesn’t exist. Cryptocurrency miners have seemingly found the solution to the limiter, and it only costs $5.99.

The GeForce RTX 3060 has got to be one of the most controversial graphics card launches in recent years. Arriving in a time of turmoil, the mid-range Ampere graphics card has been sought after by cryptocurrency miners for its Ethereum mining prowess. Although Nvidia put an anti-mining algorithm in place to nerf the GeForce RTX 3060’s hash rate in Ethereum, the mechanism didn’t last very long. As odd as it may sound, Nvidia gave away the keys to its own kingdom when the chipmaker accidentally released a GeForce beta driver that disabled the limiter.
