Nvidia’s Lite Hash Rate Algorithm Cracked By Mining Software

NBMiner’s mining software team claimed to have partially cracked Nvidia’s anti-mining restrictions. In June, the Nvidia team implemented an algorithm named Lite Hash Rate or LHR on almost all the graphics cards with the help of its RTX 30 series. They did this to limit and control cryptocurrency mining operations. The implemented limiter works on both the algorithms – BIOS and driver level detecting mining algorithm. It can thus intensely reduce the mining power by 50% of what its original capacity will be. But, this software limitation by the company was circumvented by a few Chinese cryptocurrency miners just within two weeks.

At that time, the firm said that all the miners were seriously disrupting its supply chain. This was causing its graphics cards to increase in price due to the insufficient supply. Furthermore, Nvidia said that “This additional step will get more GeForce cards at better prices into the hands of gamers everywhere” while prioritizing its gaming user base. The latest release of NBMiner can bypass these restrictions and improve the mining power of these graphic cards by up to 70%. The update applies to Windows and Linux terminals and is compatible with backup mining pool configuration.

This application is free to download for everyone. However, miners still need to pay 1% to 3% of their mining revenues to the team as a development fee. The NB team has been committed to improving the performance of the graphics card for many years. It promises to propose more improvements in the future. At present, it might not matter much to them; but it will matter once the much anticipated proof-of-stake algorithm of Ethereum 2.0 chips in.
