NVIDIA has confirmed that it is trying to get more GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards into the hands of gamers by updating its GeForce RTX 3080, GeForce RTX 3070, and GeForce RTX 3060 Ti models with a hash rate limiter that reduces their ability to effectively mine ether (ETH), the native cryptocurrency of the Ethereum blockchain. These newly manufactured SKUs will feature a “Lite Hash Rate” or “LHR” identifier on the box and retail product listings to help customers differentiate them from the older models, whose hash rates won’t be affected. NVIDIA’s revised GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards will start shipping in late May.


Because these GPUs originally launched with a full hash rate, we want to ensure that customers know exactly what they’re getting when they buy GeForce products. To help with this, our GeForce partners are labeling the GeForce RTX 3080, RTX 3070 and RTX 3060 Ti cards with a “Lite Hash Rate,” or “LHR,” identifier. The identifier will be in retail product listings and on the box.
