Galax introduced GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3070 GEFORCE RTX 3080 accelerators and GeForce RTX 3070 General FG LHR. According to the manufacturer, LHR is decrypted as Lite Hash Rate or “Low Hesherate”. The feature of these video cards is that they are equipped with new graphics processors with built-in Hardware EtherEUM cryptocurrency limiter.
It should be noted that Galax had previously represented exactly the same models of the FG video cards, but without the mining limit.

Therefore, the productivity of new products in ordinary gaming and working tasks should remain the same. But in the label GPU there is a difference.

Recall that the original versions of GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3070 are based on GA102-200 and GA104-300 graphics processors, respectively.
In the characteristics of the novelties, the manufacturer indicates that Ethereum mining efficiency in the younger model is reduced to 25 MHESHES / C, and the GeForce RTX 3080 model has up to 43 mxes / s.
According to the last rumors, all models of the NVIDIA video cards of the Ampere series will receive a new mining limiter. Deliveries of updated versions will begin from the middle of the current month.
