NVIDIA removes the cryptocurrency mining lock in its latest drivers

In an unexpected move, almost 1 month after the official death of mining in ethereum with GPUs, the latest graphics drivers from NVIDIA hid a surprise, and it is remove the security system itself that they implemented to cap mining performance with their GPUs.

That’s right, the GeForce 522.25 WHQL (520.56.06 for Linux) not only included numerous improvements for users, and even served to confirm the launch of three new GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards. And now the big surprise is remove the so-called Lite Hash Rate (LHR). This “technology” was first introduced in May 2021 in an attempt to limit the performance of your GPUs to “stop” the mining fad. This really didn’t help, as NVIDIA released some Beta drivers after the fact without having the technology active. Not to mention that the companies behind the mining software got down to business. to bypass protection.

NVIDIA’s doors to cryptocurrency mining are open again

GPU mining RIG to mine Ethereum cryptocurrencies

For the test, an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti was chosen, which was released with LHR protection. This was combined with the mining software ethminer, one of the few that could never bypass the technology implemented by NVIDIA to increase the hash rate. Now, after updating the drivers, this GPU can reach a hash rate of 112.08 MHswhich is a performance similar to that achieved by other applications such as NiceHash and NBMiner, which had more luck to bypass the security method.

Now with a simple software update, even RTX 30 LHR series GPUs have seen restored its capabilities to harness its full cryptocurrency mining strength. While now that Ethereum is no longer suitable for GPU mining, it makes sense for NVIDIA to disable their hash rate capping technology, but sure, they’re making your GPUs are minable againso the point here is this: if someone manages to come up with a suitable algorithm or cryptocurrency, it will revive the trend of using gaming GPUs to mine.

The Market Is Sinking, And Cryptocurrency Mining With NVIDIA GPUs Would Be The Perfect Rescue

It’s not a secret, the global market is in decline, and the computer industry is no exception. The consumer market is at its worst moment in the last 20 years and we come from a golden age of the industrywith record quarter-over-quarter revenue, thanks to mining of cryptocurrencies and everything that this entailed, such as the increase in the cost of hardware for the rest of the mortals.

Now, in the midst of global inflation, with hardware at much higher prices than before, and with quite negative prospects due to the current situation, a new mining fashion would be what the whole industry would like to see happen. The sale of GPUs indirectly reactivates the sale of other components. Also, if that were to happen today, the average gamer wouldn’t care. Although the mining fad inflated prices, these prices have been kept inflated with the excuse of the last blows of COVID, war, fuel and inflation.
