If you have joined the EVGA queue to purchase a new RTX 30 series graphics card, which includes The best graphics card Currently available (depending on your definition of “available”), your order will most likely have been or will be replaced with the LHR variant of the card you ordered. EVGA members began to receive emails about their orders being updated to new models with Nvidia anti-mining chips.
LHR, or “Lite Hash Rate”, is NVIDIA’s points-level anti-mining function Initially with Tencent 3060,After that RTX 3080 Titanium with RTX 3070 TitaniumIt is also part of the newer models 3080, 3070 and 3060 Ti cards.

EVGA also warned that queuing backups for old cards does not guarantee order fulfillment at all. Given that Nvidia plans to permanently stop using non-LHR chips, this makes sense.Well, at least stop it on the GeForce card-if CMP products using non-LHR silicon appear at some point in the future, we won’t be surprised, assuming Bitcoin and Ethereum manage to Recovering from the recent downturn.
