ZOTAC announces RTX 3060 ‘Gaming’ series with updated GA106-302 LHR GPU

On Weibo, ZOTAC has officially confirmed it will be releasing its new RTX 3060 graphics card once again, except this time with a new cryptomining limiter. 

The company does not explain the changes coming with the new chip, nor mentions LHR or cryptomining in general. However, this information is confirmed by Expreview who were first to publish this information.

According to the list of products published by ZOTAC, the company will be adding a letter ‘G’ or ‘GE’ moniker to its RTX 3060 lineup, which probably means Gaming Edition. We have already seen GALAX using a similar ‘FE’ moniker which meant ‘For Gamers’.

Future customers may need to pay more attention when purchasing new GeForce RTX 30 graphics cards if they wish to avoid LHR models. However starting from this month, no ‘old’ variants of Ampere GPUs will be produced. This means that the whole NVIDIA lineup will shift to models with the lowered hash rate in cryptomining.
