Anti-cryptomining GPUs from Nvidia have now been completely freed

The LHR (low hashrate) variants of Nvidia’s RTX 30 series graphics cards have now been completely unlocked by mining software called Nicehash, restoring each card’s specific mining capabilities almost a year after their initial release.

Many of the best graphics cards have been nearly impossible to come by in the last two years due to a global chip shortage, a broader supply chain crisis at ports around the world

Cryptominers were also a part of this demand, purchasing up the available stock of popular GPUs in bulk during the recent crypto currency boom.

While there are differing perspectives on how this affected overall availability for gamers and hobbyists, there was clearly no love lost between the two groups, resulting in Team Green taking steps to make its consumer graphics cards less desirable to those looking to mine cryptocurrencies like Ethereum.
