On Saturday, cryptocurrency mining platform Nicehash revealed that the company has “fully… [unlocked] nvidia [Lite Hash Rate]Graphic Processing Units (GPUs). Nicehash says the company’s Quickminer mining software is the first protocol that can unlock 100% GPU LHR cards.
Nicehash says that the software is the first to completely crack Nvidia’s Lite hash rate technology
According to cryptocurrency mining platform Nicehash, the company has developed software that completely unlocks Nvidia’s Lite Hash branded graphics processing units (GPUs). “Nicehash has unleashed the power of locked computing for millions of people around the world,” the company She said on Saturday. “We are the first to fully launch Nvidia’s LHR.”
Nvidia unveiled its GPU Lite Hash Rate (LHR) cards in mid-May 2021 after the semiconductor giant said it wanted to put these chips back in the hands of gamers. “We believe this additional step will make more Geforce cards at better prices more affordable for gamers everywhere,” an Nvidia spokesperson said at the time.
GPU competitor AMD also introduced its first dedicated crypto-mining graphics processing unit called the AMD Navi 12. When Nvidia introduced its LHR technology, it applied the protocol to three of its GPU cards.
I started cracking Nvidia’s LHR technology months ago
Nicehash is not the only one who can remove LHR technology from Nvidia. Back in January, Bitcoin.com News reported on individual miners who beat the miner’s miner tech. The report further clarified that Nicehash told pcmag.com that month that Nvidia’s LHR technology “has not discouraged miners at all”.
However, at the time, reports indicated that miners had outgrown LHR technology by a fraction. The Nicehash announcement on Saturday announced that the Quickminer mining software is removing 100% of LHR reducers.
“We are very excited to tell you that Nicehash Quickminer (Excavator) is the first miner to completely unlock LHR cards (100%),” according to a blog posted by Nicehash. “Now you can earn more profit than any other mining software on the market if you use LHR graphics cards with Nicehash Quickminer.”
Nicehash’s new software that unlocks Nvidia’s LHR GPU cards, follows recent charges against Nvidia by the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). According to the Securities and Exchange Commission, Nvidia failed to disclose that crypto mining had increased revenue. The semiconductor company agreed to pay a fine of $5.5 million for non-disclosure of information.
