LHR chips tested: an effective anti-crypto clamp?

LHR chips tested: an effective anti-crypto clamp?

It is directly from China that we get the first feedback on the effectiveness of the new Nvidia LHR (Low Hash Rate) chips that should discourage miners and bring back availability for players. In the future, only the RTX 30 LHR cards should remain on the consumer market. The LHR series includes the RTX 3080 Ti, 3080, 3070 Ti, 3070, 3060 Ti and RTX 3060. Only the RTX 3090 is not included but it was not really a model targeted by miners.

A (supposedly) really effective clamping this time

Apparently, LHRs arrived a bit early on the Chinese market (one wonders why…) and Expreview got their hands on a ZOTAC RTX 3060 LHR Apocalypse GOC. The article offers a quick basic exploration test. There is no direct comparison with existing RTX 3060 models, but if we go by the numbers, there is no difference between this RTX 3060 LHR and an “old” RTX 3060 in games and synthetic tests. On the other hand, using the card with the latest mining programs, including those that already know how to bypass the first Nvidia flange (on the first 3060s) only allows a hash rate of 20-22 MH/s at 119W. Without special optimization, an “old” RTX 3060 reached a minimum of 40MH/s. RTX-3060-LHR mining Another figure for the RTX 3080 Ti seems to indicate that it could only spit out 58 MH/S at 299W. LHR mining We’ll have to give the smartest of miners a little time to see if this throttling is effective and lasts over time. If it is, the gamer has no reason to hesitate between an RTX LHR and an “old generation” RTX: the performance is the same.
