Gigabyte is also launching the GeForce RTX 3060 series graphics cards with Lite Hash Rate.
Gigabyte was the second company to launch GeForce RTX 3060 graphics cards with Lite Hash Rate (LHR) after GALAX. On the other hand, it should be noted that it is not easy to distinguish these new versions from existing models.
A second revision (Rev. 2.0) of the entire GeForce RTX 3060 portfolio, including the AORUS Master, Vision OC, Gaming OC and Eagle OC / non-OC series, has been released by Gigabyte. It is worth mentioning that the company does not detail the LHR on its official website. GALAX, on the other hand, provided mining hash rate figures that could theoretically help customers understand what LHR means.
The lack of official guidance from NVIDIA on RTX 30 LHR series product naming seems to be a bit of a problem. We can say that it will be difficult to find out which model has this feature. Of course, we can easily say that the main concern of the players is not the LHR graphics cards.
NVIDIA promised that the RTX 30 LHR series will have the same gaming performance and the hash rate limiter will only apply to cryptocurrency mining. It is currently unclear whether this only applies to Ethereum and its derivatives or a wider range of cryptocurrencies.
A side-by-side comparison of the two revisions shows that there is no change in the design of the revisions. There are no changes in the specifications or layout of the display connector. On the other hand, it is possible that there are changes in PCB design that are not pictured by Gigabyte. Let’s also highlight that there is a new GA106-302 GPU with LHR variant on each of these cards.
