Tests Preview Limits of Nvidia’s Crypto-Limited RTX 3060 LHR, RTX 3080 Ti



As some of the best graphics cards makers get ready to roll out their GeForce RTX Lite Hash Rate (LHR) add-in-boards (AIB), designed to limit the mining capability of the cards, enthusiasts are eager to push them to their limits and see how much cryptomining performance is really hindered.  This week, a Zotac GeForce RTX 3060 LHR card and a GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, which Nvidia has yet to announce, were reportedly used to try to mine Ethereum, giving a peek at how well Nvidia’s LHR technology works. 

Chinese tech website Expreview today shared testing of Zotac’s GeForce RTX 3060 LHR Apocalypse GOC graphics card, which is only available in China. When it came to Ethereum mining, the GeForce RTX 3060 LHR reportedly did around 20-22 MHps at 119W, which is half of what a regular GeForce RTX 3060 can do without a mining limitation. Notably, the hash rate limiter kicked off immediately on the GeForce RTX 3060 LHR but took some time for it to start on a non-LHR card.
