    Nvidia GeForce 470.05 driver kills RTX 3060 hash rate limiter

    However, the rate limiter still kicks into action when multiple cards are detected.

    This could be nice for the gamer to earn a few bucks back by casually mining.

    But, what if a miner operation could, you know, use virtualization, and run various VMs and pass-through one 3060 for each of them?

    NVIDIA is not on the gamers' side.

    Still a massive fail by Nvidia - put all this security in so you can't hack the drivers and remove the limiter, and shoot yourself in the foot by releasing a driver without the limiter in!

    Supposedly it detects the card is on a riser (presumably detects only having a x1 PCIe connection) and so would require something like a Threadripper board to get enough PCIe lanes to plug them all in.

    Re: Nvidia GeForce 470.05 driver kills RTX 3060 hash rate limiter

    Hehe yeah they really screwed up on that one, i do wonder why they made a limiter killing driver in the first place when the plan was for these to be limited in regard to mining.
    I am thinking they probably made the driver, so it was at hand if they ran into a surplus of these that could not sell to gamers, and so would have to be sold to miners.

    Nvidia must be hugely embarrassed.

    I said this elsewhere, i would not be surprised if Nvidia orchestrated this as they knew the limiter would be cracked and was a way to save face.

    It's perfect, say it's "unhackable" then "fumble a blunder" nullifying any claims that someone actually hacked the driver because the limiter removed code was in the wild.

    They get off scot free, get all the money, no flashback.

    If that is what happened then bumbling idiot isn't a good look, though TBF Intel have been shooting themselves in the foot for decades with apparently no ill effect.

    From back in my security device designing days I remember right at the top of all the audit paperwork was always the question: "Is there a test mode". Answering "yes" unlocked a world of pain to prove beyond any doubt that such a mode could in no way ever end up in the wild. I never included a test mode. Ever

    is it me or is the 470 beta driver removed from the nividia site already?

    Long gone, but I'm sure it will keep popping up.

    OFC it was only a Windows driver, so the question is whether that can be used to get a Linux driver working for mainline mining rigs.


    Looks like you also need a monitor plugged in (or a dummy hdmi monitor plug).

    Appearing to be bumbling idiot is safer than confirming you are one (if the hackers had cracked it in record time)

    I know it's likely not manually set up, but I'd love to think it is

    Yes, but never underestimate the harm a bumbling idiot could do while befuddling everyone with a strange haircut!
