The recent blunder by Nvidia started when they accidentally published the GeForce 470.05 driver on its developer webpage that allowed users to bypass the hash rate limiter but later removed it. As soon as the driver was highlighted to enable the full cryptocurrency mining rate of Ampere GPUs, it spread like wildfire and is currently available to download everywhere in public domains.

According to Andrea Schilling of Hardwareluxx, all you have to do is get dummy HDMI connectors which can trick the driver into thinking that the other cards are also being run for display adapters and allow for full mining rate.
