Quickminer software restores 100% mining performance for almost the entire range.
Almost a year after its introduction, LHR protection (Lite Hash Rate) of the GeForce RTX 3000 series of the same name has fallen. Until now, workarounds only restored partial graphics card mining performance, never 100%. This would now be the case via QuickMiner according to the developers of NiceHash, who had also been among the first to restore around 70% of the performance. They announce: “We are very happy to tell you that NiceHash QuickMiner (Excavator) is the first mining software to FULLY (100%) UNLOCK LHR cards! “.
This assertion is valid for the moment for QuickMiner with the DaggerHashimoto algorithm (Ethash) – not yet NiceHash Miner; “officially”, only on Windows but Linux systems also seem eligible. On the other hand, the NiceHash team specifies that at “currently all LHR variants except LHRv3 (3050 and 3080 12GB) are supported”. Finally, on the performance side, here are their estimates:
|Graphic card||Expected performance|
|RTX 3060 LHR||~50MHz/s|
|RTX 3060 Ti LHR||~60MHz/s|
|RTX 3070 LHR||~60MHz/s|
|RTX 3070 Ti LHR||~81MHz/s|
|RTX 3080 10GB LHR||~98MHz/s|
|RTX 3080 Ti LHR||~120MHz/s|
More than 100 MH/s for an RTX 3080 Ti
Unlike others, NiceHash claims are not a scam and are obviously not misleading. Their promise to restore 100% mining performance to the RTX 3000s has been verified by multiple outlets, including Tom’s Hardware US. Our colleagues report a hash rate above 100 MH/s for their unlocked GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Founders Edition, compared to 77 MH/s previously; only 65 MH/s for their MSI GeForce RTX 3080 12 GB Suprim X.
The Benchmark.pl team also verified the claims of the NiceHash team; always with a GeForce RTX 3080 Ti.
Bad news for buyers?
As you will have noticed, it has now been several weeks since the availability of GPUs has increased and prices have fallen accordingly. The end of the LHR limiter will certainly delight miners, but the impact on the graphics card market should be small. Indeed, even fully operational, the GeForce RTX 3000s reach their break-even point much less quickly than before. It takes about a year before the purchase pays off – at best.
