The latest version of NVIDIA anti-mining protection was hacked by 90% – News

NVIDIA’s attempts to limit the efficiency of their graphics cards for miners have proved futile. According to Tom’s Hardware, the NiceHash developer managed to bypass the third and newest version of the Lite Hash Rate (LHRv3) algorithm. Thus, miners can again use all GeForce RTX 30-series video cards to mine cryptocurrencies.

Earlier this month, NiceHash developers reported a complete hack of the first and second versions of LHR. The last frontier was the RTX 3050 and RTX 3080 video cards with 12 GB of video memory, which used a third, more advanced version of the algorithm. However, it took less than two weeks to get around this limitation. To be fair, the defense was 90% broken. This means that when mining Ethereum through the QuickMiner application, it only uses 90% of the maximum potential of the video card.

When using the QuickMiner v0.5.4.2 application from NiceHash, you can now get the following hash rates on NVIDIA video cards:

  • RTX 3050 LHRv3 – ~41 MHz/s
  • RTX 3060 LHRv / LHRv2 – ~50 MHz/s
  • RTX 3060 Ti LHRv2 – ~60 MHz/s
  • RTX 3070 LHRv2 – ~60 MHz/s
  • RTX 3070 Ti LHRv2 – ~81 MHz/s
  • RTX 3080 10 GB LHRv2 – ~98 MX/s
  • RTX 3080 12GB LHRv3 – ~90 MHz/s
  • RTX 3080 Ti LHRv2 – ~120 MHz/s

It is possible that soon the third version of the protection will be 100% hacked. True, there is a possibility that this will not entail a new shortage of video cards, since the cryptocurrency market is now rapidly falling .
