If at the beginning of the month we knew that The Nvidia GeForce RTX 30 LHR have seen their full mining potential unleashedit was curious that all GPUs see their potential performance freed up by Ethereum mining except for two models: the GeForce RTX 3080 12 GB and the GeForce RTX 3050newer models with an updated LHR algorithm (LHRv3 vs LHRv1 and LHRv2) to lower its mining performance that it could not crack. At least it was until then, and now 90% of these performances have been unlocked.
To access 90% mining performance, miners have a very simple task, since they only have to install the new version of NiceHash QuickMiner v0.5.4.2 RC as well as Nvidia GeForce 512.15 or higher graphics drivers. Just with this move, a GeForce RTX 3050 achieves an Ethereum mining Hash Rate of 41MH/swhile the 12GB GeForce RTX 3080 offers 90MH/sthus remaining on the verge of equaling the performance of the GeForce RTX 3060 (50 MH/s) and the GeForce RTX 3080 10 GB (98 MH/s).
With all this information, it is clear that it will only be a matter of time before the LHRv3 protection is completely crackedeven if it doesn’t really matter. Most cryptocurrencies have lost much of their value, to the point where they are not profitable to mineto which is added that it is not profitable to set up a mining farm today, since basically there is no return on investmenttherefore these releases will not affect a current market with prices dropping weekly.
