Hashrate of the Geforce RTX 4060 8Gb video card

hasrate RTX4060Just a few days ago, another Nvidia graphics card from the 4000 series, the RTX 4060, went on sale at a price of 299 USD. Considering the negative trends of the latest models, namely simplification and simultaneous rise in price, which became especially noticeable on the RTX 4060 Ti video card, we will evaluate with interest the mining capabilities of the Geforce RTX 4060 and find out whether this video card is worth the money or better to prefer other options.

Specifications of the Nvidia Geforce RTX 4060 graphics card:

Actually, from the table above, you can see how Nvidia purposefully simplifies its video cards in the initial and middle segments, and the memory subsystem suffers from this simplification first of all, because. a narrower memory bus with the same type of GDDR6 memory directly affects the mining algorithms ETHash, ETChash, KawPow and other algorithms that depend on the memory subsystem.

RTX 4060 hashrate on different algorithms:

Ethash/ETChash - 33.2Mh/s 72W

memehash - 31Mh/s 77W

NexaPow - 58Mh/s 89W

KawPow - 18Mh/s 92W

Blake3 - 1.18Gh/s 90W

DynexSolve - 3900H/s 72W

SHA512256D - 573Mh/s 77W

SHA256DT - 1650MH/s 80W

KheavyHash - 400Mh/s 77W

blake3Ironfish - 10450Mh/s 89W

Due to the more modern Nvidia AD107 GPU, the RTX4060 video card, according to GPU-dependent algorithms, shows a noticeably higher hash rate and sometimes even with lower power consumption than the RTX 3060, but on the once popular EThash, the RTX4060 loses a lot. And this lag can be characterized as catastrophic.

Conclusion: If the decrease in Cuda cores compared to the RTX 3060 is compensated by a higher frequency of operation, more advanced Cuda cores and lower power consumption, then cutting the memory width from 192 bits to 128 bits immediately puts this video card on a step below in cryptocurrency mining performance. Therefore, the RTX 4060 graphics card leaves behind the same controversial opinion as the older RTX 4060Ti model.

When Nvidia released almost the entire line of RTX 4000 video cards, we can safely say that all video cards of this series (except for the RTX 4090) have noticeable simplifications in the video memory subsystem compared to the previous RTX3000 line, and we have no vague doubts that we are "thankful" to such negative changes. "Nvidia's greed and the transition of the Ethereum cryptocurrency to POS, when the demand for video cards with a wide channel of video memory among miners has sharply decreased.
