Miners using GeForce RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 need to be careful. It turned out that the memory of these cards is very hot



As you know, GeForce RTX 30 video cards turned out to be very good at mining, so cryptocurrency miners are buying them, even despite the inflated prices.

However, new data indicates that the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 can be problematic in these operating conditions.

The source reports that thanks to the HWInfo64 software update, it is possible to better monitor the temperature conditions of the new Nvidia adapters. And it turned out that when mining Ethereum, the temperature of the GDDR6X memory chips can exceed 110 degrees! For comparison, in games it is also high, but still fluctuates between 90-100 degrees. In addition to the fact that such temperatures are simply dangerous for microcircuits, heating leads to GPU throttling.

Since the new Nvidia adapters only recently went on sale, and even a strong shortage has formed, there is still no clear statistics on card failures as part of the mining process. But we can assume that the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 in such conditions may fail early enough. In addition, there will be questions for such cards in the secondary market.
