After just a day from the start of sales of RTX 3070 video cards from Nvidia, the first tests of the new product in mining the Ethereum cryptocurrency have already appeared on the Internet. And what is most interesting, the RTX 3070 is similar in performance to the previous top RTX 2080 Ti, not only in games, but also in the resulting hash rate when mining with the Ethash algorithm.
UPD: Full tests of the Nvidia Geforce RTX 3070 Gigabyte Gaming OC video card have appeared. The video card has onboard Samsung GDDR6 memory. Test data: Power Limit 45%, Memory 1500Mhz

Different results were obtained depending on the model and manufacturer of the video card:
|MSI GeForce RTX 3070
|ASUS GeForce RTX 3070
|GeForce RTX 3070 FE
Unfortunately, the source does not indicate the power consumption of video cards during mining.
According to our estimates, the power consumption of the RTX 3070 in this scenario will be in the region of 160-180W versus 220W and 55Mh/s for the RTX 2080 Ti.
We have already added this video card to the mining calculator website Profit-mine.comso that you can visually compare the result with other models of video cards.
