What's an LHR GPU?

If you're lucky enough to own one of NVIDIA's latest GPUs, there's a chance you may have heard the term "LHR" in reference to your shiny new RTX 3000 GPU. "LHR" stands for Lite Hash Rate, and it's an artificial hardware lock on the hashrate for some algorithms on many RTX 3000 GPU models. This will result in lower earnings whilst mining with these models versus the normal, or FHR (Full Hash Rate), models. You can check whether your GPU model is one of these LHR variants by following the steps below:

  1. Install GPU-z at https://www.techpowerup.com/download/techpowerup-gpu-z/

  2. Run the installer, and open the program

  3. Look at the "GPU" identifier near the top left. If you have an LHR GPU, it will identify as such
