New NVIDIA Geforce RTX 30 series GPUs

The new Nvidia 30 series GPU specs have been confirmed. Not sure if there are any leaks as to hashing power, but are you guys buying? To mine with?

RTX 3090
5248 cores
24GB DDR6X
19.5 gbps
350W

RTX 3080
4352 cores
10GB DDR6X
19 gbps
320W

It's been said time again but i feel like it's important to reiterate: Do your research - don't get into mining because of the hype.

I'm not buying until someone gives a try and drop the hashing power but I feel it won't the much from the hashing of GTX 2080ti but let's wait and see

I think nvidia and amd is pumping eth so they know they will sell every one of their gpus for whatever price they will ask for, eliminate gpus like rx 580 and 1070 and pave the way for amazing returns for their new gpus. Idiots will buy 3080 for 2000~3000 usd, idiots back in 2018 bought volta titans https://www.amazon.com/NVIDIA-TITAN-VOLTA-12GB-VIDEO/dp/B078G1VHYN for 3500 usd for mining.

I've jotted down some quick napkin math. Hashrate isn't necessarily perfectly linear to total memory bandwidth, but it is a somewhat reasonable analogue to give round numbers.

RTX 3090* ~935-1008 GBps
RTX 3080* 760 GBps
RX 5700 XT - 480 GBps - 58 mh/s (eth)
RTX 2080ti - 616 GBps - 52 mh/s (eth)
GTX 1660 super - 336 GBps - 30 mh/s (eth)
RX 580 - 256 GBps - 30 mh/s (eth)

I think it would be somewhat reasonable to take a guess at 3080 hashrates in the 60s or low 70s and 3090 in the 90s. They are neither low tdp nor cheap, so to me this doesn't represent a value proposition. But ymmv.

The prices are missing. Personally I'm looking at these cards as a player first and foremost. If mining makes economic sense I might mine when I'm not playing, but I doubt it. Cooling isn't an issue as I watercool.

I expect the prices to be eye-watering though. Let's hope AMD can get back in the high end, high performance game soon.

From multiple leaks:

The leaked prices are just the baseline.
Once, OEMs get there hands-on, the prices will be pretty more than that.
Not to mention, miner updates to support new-gen GPUs and such before any definitive testing and true capability of the card can be determined.
So, It's a sure waiting game till then.

Most probably nvidia will lock the bios and make it less efficient for mining. . We need compute drivers for nvidia gaming cards. . :)
