NVIDIA LHR cryptomining lock has also been cracked for Linux

NVIDIA LHR unlock now available for Linux

NBMiner (NebuMiner) team has also pathed their software that unlocks 100% of mining performance on GeForce RTX 30 GPUs.

This follows the report that the NiceHash team has successfully removed the hashrate limiter from NVIDIA cards. NBMiner is now also available with 100% LHR unlock for RTX 30 GPUs. Both software is closed-source, so we can’t see how exactly was the LHR cracked (it would be very interesting for sure).

What is apparent here though is that two teams running popular crypto-tools have managed to unlock LHR cards almost at the same time. This raises a question if they shared information with each other and how did they found the method in the first place.

Our followers have confirmed that NBMiner v41 software does indeed work, which is the first time LHR has been cracked for Linux.

We have seen plenty of conspiracy theories that NVIDIA might have slipped information to those dev teams to boost the sales of their cards, but those are probably far-fetched. The availability of the new cards is very good, some cards will certainly go to miners again.

Unfortunately, it’s always the cheapest cards that are the most popular due to their power-efficiency and return-of-investment figures. Still, there are Radeon RX 6000 cards to choose from, which never had any cryptomining locks in the first place, yet they approach MSRP at the same pace.
