What are locked LHR cards?
LHR stands for Lite Hash Rate. This means that the new Nvidia GPUs are equipped with performance limiters that are designed to make “mining” cryptocurrencies unprofitable. LHR technology detects when they are used to mine cryptocurrencies and automatically halves their performance. This is the only difference between locked LHR cards and their prototypes without this lock.
