The Nvidia RTX 3090 is undoubtedly the forerunning graphics card from the Nvidia GeForce RTX series. When it was launched in 2020, it instantly drew attention from passionate gamers and miners even before its features and specs were out.
Around that time, the mining segment caused an increase in price and low stock levels as every other miner flocked to get their hands on the Nvidia RTX 3090 for mining ethereum. One factor that held some back was the hefty price being charged for it. The price of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 at the time of launch was 1499 USD. Then there's the whole shortage issue.
While AMD may be more profitable, Nvidia Geforce RTX cards are more universal and easier to use when it comes to algorithms. Many may consider AMD when they start mining due to the price factor.
The features, mining performance and hash rate for RTX 3090
The GPU power consumption for RTX 3090* is around 320W. So the power limit is important because if it is lowered, the hash rate will also drop. The maximum temperature of GPU is 93C. The current market price of the Nvidia Geforce RTX 3090 is around 3250 USD.
When it comes to mining performance, the RTX 3090 has a mining rate of around 122 MH/s in Ethereum, while its first actual mining performance was reported to be around 106 MH/s. The mining algorithm to test the first actual mining performance was the DaggerHashimoto algorithm.
The performance is contingent on the stock number of the graphics card, while it was regarded as 49% faster when we compare it with Nvidia RTX 3080. So, with a hash rate (mining power) of around 120 MH/s, it is considered to have a +1350 memory clock and a power limit of 100%.
RTX 3090 Mining profitability
The hash rate or the mining power of RTX 3090 may vary across the different coins. For instance, for Ethereum, it is 125 MH/s. Moreover, the hash rate and energy consumption also differ according to the device.
Moving on to the mining profitability, if we consider mining the most profitable coins on the RTX 3090, an average of one year reveals an annual profit of 3716 USD and an average daily profit of 10 USD. The values do not consider the electricity costs.
You can also do profitability calculation for your device by entering the hash rate of coins, power consumption and electricity costs.
