Ethereum Classic ETC Mining On GeForce RTX 3070

In terms of performance, the GeForce RTX 3070 nearly matches the RTX 2080 Ti from the previous generation in the high-end $500 market.

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 is the younger child of the “green” GPU series, which includes 5888 Nvidia CUDA cores, 8GB of GDDR6 memory, and a boost clock of 1.73 GHz. According to the manufacturer, the RTX 3070 outperforms the RTX 2070 by 30–40% and the GTX 1070 by at least two to one.

Users claim that this model falls far short of the expensive RTX 3090. However, the price difference is substantial: the RTX 3070 was introduced at $580. You also receive a top-notch build and a powerful cooling system.
