NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 30 LHR graphics card was released almost a year ago, and NiceHash unlocked the series, enabling 100% crypto mining speeds. Since its inception, there have been many attempts to avoid LHR. This technique is designed to discourage crypto miners from buying gaming graphics cards, but as we’ve observed, it’s crypto by achieving 70-80% of mining speed with NB Miner and Quick Miner upgrades. Miners were able to make significant profits with GeForce RTX 30 series GPUs.
NiceHash has chosen to improve QuickMiner, a cryptominer based on the Daggerhashimotto algorithm for mining Ethereum or ETH, now that mining enthusiasts have subsided. Using the same software, we unlocked up to 70% of hash rates in August 2021 and unlocked mining rates of up to 80% in future versions.
Below is the hash rate of the unlocked RTX 30L HRGPU provided by NiceHash.
With the latest upgrade, crypto miners can now achieve 100% mining rates even when using RTX 30 LHR graphics cards. The latter is designated as a variation of the “write hash rate”, but the RTX3080 and RTX3080LHR produce the same hash rate.
Mining may not be as profitable as it was a year ago. The RTX 3090 TI produces approximately 125-130 MH / s. That’s $ 4-5 per second. This means that you can pay for it in just 400 days (more than a year). This was before considering the cost of electricity. The RTX 3080 earns around $ 3-3.5 and takes 250-280 days to recover your investment.
Cards are much cheaper and are back at MSRP level again, but it seems that it’s no longer worth investing in mining hardware, but those who already own an RTX 30 LHR card can mine faster than existing hardware. You can enjoy rates and more income.
NVIDIA’s “LHR” effort wasn’t destined from the beginning. While it allows retailers and distributors to raise the price of non-LHR cards and make more money, despite the fact that they were available in limited quantities, miners The first meant avoiding “LHR” -specific game cards, and prices soared significantly.
Overall, NVIDIA LHR looks like it’s nearing the end. Mining isn’t as intense as it used to be, and now that the GPU is back in stock, we can finally say goodbye to this feature.
