GALAX has confirmed NVIDIA's plans to re-release the GeForce RTX 30 series with revised ETH mining limits. All cards bar the GeForce RTX 3090 have received new GPUs with a '2' suffix, replacing the '0' suffix from the original Ampere GPUs.

Last month, we reported that NVIDIA would be re-releasing its Ampere desktop graphics card with revamped hash rate limiters. NVIDIA has not spelt out how this will come to pass, but GALAX has given us an idea. According to its listings, NVIDIA has re-designed all bar the RTX 3090's GPU, which remains on the GA102-300. By contrast, the rest of the RTX 30 desktop series feature the following 'LHR' GPUs:

  • GeForce RTX 3060 - GA106-302
  • GeForce RTX 3060 Ti - GA104-202
  • GeForce RTX 3070 - GA104-302
  • GeForce RTX 3080 - GA102-202

GALAX explains that LHR means low hash rate, although it obscures this at the bottom of its listings. The company also refers to these LHR cards as (FG), which seemingly means 'for gamers'.

GALAX is the first of NVIDIA's partners to release these modified Ampere GPUs. However, we expect others to follow in due course. It remains to be seen if these ETH mining limits will remain impenetrable this time, but GALAX claims that they halve what the RTX 30 series previously offered.
