There have been plenty of reports about how NVIDIA is planning to refresh its entire range of GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards with updated chips to counter cryptomining and ensure that more of these products go to gamers. According to a new report from VideoCardz, these refreshed GPUs are being internally referred to as the “Lite Hash Rate” series and feature not only a new cryptocurrency mining limiter, but ResizableBAR support as well (no vBIOS update required like the current SKUs). NVIDIA’s updated GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards are expected to hit the market beginning in June.

It’s worth noting that Lite Hash Rate is not a marketing term, but rather a term used to describe new GPUs to board partners. NVIDIA has been quite clear that those chips will offer the exact same performance in games as the cards already on the market (that’s not taking ReBAR performance uplift into account).
