NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 LHR Graphics Cards Now Fully Unlocked for Linux OS

The NBMiner team, also known as NebuMiner, has updated its mining program, allowing users to use all mining capabilities on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 LHR graphics cards. Since NiceHash and NebuMiner applications are closed-source, it is difficult to observe the adjustments made to the code by the NBMiner team to unlock the lightweight hash rate.

The most intriguing aspect of this development is that both teams, who are well known in the crypto mining industry for their respective mining software, were able to unlock NVIDIA’s LHR Limiter virtually simultaneously. It is possible that the two organizations exchanged information on the procedure in question.

NVIDIA introduced the LHR restriction for its graphics cards in February last year to discourage crypto miners from using the devices in such a large capacity. However, due to demand from gamers, consumers, and miners, graphics cards were limited for several months, forcing customers to pay exorbitant prices for their required GPUs.


The Videocardz website was contacted by, @JJDizz1L, on Twitter, who confirmed that NBMiner v41 software works on NVIDIA RTX 30 series graphics cards and this is the first time LHR has been unlocked on the open OS Linux source.

With the recent release of the NVIDIA RTX 30 series cards in the market, both novice and experienced crypto miners looking for graphics cards to aid in the mining process will benefit. NVIDIA should also benefit as more people are expected to buy their cards now that the LHR is fully unlocked on their popular card series.

Due to the ROI and power efficiency, cryptocurrency fans can opt for the cheaper RTX 30 series GPUs for their needs. However, AMD has a large number of Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards on the market, and the devices were not equipped with LHR limiters.
