Nvidia RTX 3000 Founders Edition graphics cards won’t get anti-cryptocurrency mining measures

Nvidia just officially announced new LHR or ‘Light Hash Rate’ graphics cards which have their Ethereum crypto-mining performance slashed to deter miners from buying the GPUs, but these models will only come from third-party card manufacturers – there won’t be any new LHR spins on the Founders Edition range.

The Founders Edition graphics cards, which are the models made by Nvidia itself, weren’t mentioned in yesterday’s big revelation of LHR models for RTX 3080, RTX 3070, and RTX 3060 Ti GPUs (the RTX 3060 had mining countermeasures applied back in February, but they were circumvented – which hopefully won’t happen with this new approach).

This led our sister site PC Gamer to get in touch with Nvidia to determine whether the Founders Edition models could get an LHR spin, too, but Team Green replied in no uncertain terms: “Founders Edition is a limited production graphics card sold at MSRP, and at this point we don’t have plans to make versions with LHR.”
