Several sources immediately reported that GeForce's versions of 520.56.06 , which about halved the output of GeForce RTX's 30th series of video cards during production, were cryptized.
After Ethereum's transition to the Proof-of-Stake algorithm, the production of this cryptized cryptically on video cards has gone back, but some engineers have not despaired and continue to extract other digital assets through the GPU. However, the video card mining has declined sharply and the NVIDIA seems to have decided to shut down the previously established restrictions.
The Reddit user under Timbers007 reported that following the upgrade of GeForce RTX 3080 Ti's video card, which was immediately released with the LHR limiter, had begun to display a higher hashrate. In support of this, he launched an Ethminer application under Windows, which failed to circumvent the LHR limiter's restrictions and showed that the video card had reached a speed of about 112 Mash/s. About the same amount of video card is being released to NiceHash/NBMiner, which had previously been able to bypass LHR.
In addition, YouTube Rapid Mining confirmed that the LHR version of GeForce RTX 3060 with the last driver had reached 47 Mash/s, although it had previously produced less than 25 Mash/s.
NVIDIA began to produce LHR models of video cards in May 2021, as a countermeasure against the gamers who denied gamers access to the game cards by buying new batches of graphic accelerators. However, the designers of the software began to seek different ways of circumventing the restriction. In the end, the block was able to shut down completely, although the NVIDIA tried to return it. The official removal of the limiter means that for the production of Ergo or Ethereum Classic Miners no longer had to launch software with increased privileges.
