As fate has it, last week I received an email from EVGA stating I could buy the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 12G-P5-3657-KR for 399.00. I have been busy and did not realize the chips had been updated to a newer version and that the 470.05 beta driver trick no longer works on Device ID 10DE 2504 – 3842 3556! I went out of town and Monday morning I read that there is now a workaround that unlocks more of the hash rate. This is not a hack or related to the March beta driver accidental unlock from NVIDIA. This method throttles the card under 70% which prevents the card from going into limited hash rate mode aka LHR.
Download the 39.0+ mining program directly from mdminer.com. In your bat file, you can add -lrh 69 to the bat file. By default it is set to 68. Once unlocked, you should see your hash rate go from 24-26 MHs to 33-34 MHs. Right now this only works for Ethereum mining!
