EVGA has reportedly outed a firmware update for GeForce RTX 3080 Ti LHR models that addresses the "power lock" issue on these cards while mining. With the new firmware installed, miners found that their 3080 Ti LHR cards delivered up to 91 MH/s in Ethereum workloads.

EVGA recently outed a firmware update for select GeForce RTX 3080 Ti LHR models that addresses a memory "power lock" issue and boosts cryptocurrency mining performance by up to 20 percent. Redditors and users on the EVGA forums previously described a problem where EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti cards would underclock the core clock frequency when the card was operating under memory-intensive workloads like Ethereum mining. 

This resulted in rather disappointing hashrates, in the 60-70 MH/s range. After getting feedback from miners on its forum, EVGA apparently released a vBIOS update that fixes the core downclocking issue. With the new BIOS installed, GeForce RTX 3080 Ti LHR users saw Ethereum hashrates jump to as high as 91 MH/s in optimal conditions. 

Considering the extreme pricing of the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti due to market supply issues, a 20 percent boost to the card's Ethereum hashrate could significantly cut down on the breakeven time for miners.
