What is LHR mining?
Popular mining software company NiceHash has today released the first software that can fully unlock Nvidia’s light hashrate (LHR) mining limiter on specific graphics cards, unleashing their full speed when mining crypto coin Ethereum.
Can you bypass LHR for mining?
After a year of teetering, NiceHash has finally made life easier for cryptocurrency miners… at least, some of them. It’s taken a full year, but Nvidia’s Lite Hash Rate (LHR) GPU tech has finally been fully bypassed.
Has LHR been cracked?
The Lite Hash Rate (LHR) algorithm that limits the crypto mining performance of certain Nvidia RTX 30 graphics cards has been completely cracked. NiceHash confirmed they’ve developed a workaround that allows you to mine the Ethereum coin on GPUs without any of the limitations imposed by Nvidia.
Can LHR GPU be unlocked?
It is possible to unlock LHR GPU 100% only from this month. Unlocking LHR GPUs 100% really started with an announcement from NiceHash on May 6, 2022. It stated that their QuickMiner software was able to unlock NVIDIA LHR GPUs 100% on Windows. In the following hours, NBMiner released its first version: v41.
Are LHR cards worth it for mining?
Nvidia LHR graphics cards detect when they’re being used for Ethereum (ETH) cryptocurrency mining and automatically halve the “hash rate.” Without diving too deeply into the weeds, this makes LHR GPUs less profitable for potential mining purchases due to their higher power draw relative to the now lower hash rate.
Is LHR only for Ethereum?
Sev actually mines another coin to turn a profit with the LHR cards, thus showing the reported futility of the limiter in preventing demand. Nvidia’s LHR only limits Ethereum mining, and other alternative cryptocurrencies can still be mined with a high efficiency.
