Hardware shortages across most of the tech we buy has been something of the norm for several months, but it's been especially bad in the GPU space due to the recent surge in enthusiast cryptomining. That is hobbyists using graphics cards intended for playing PC games to "mine" for what we're told are "coins". Well, that's about to change for all NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080, 3070 and 3060 Ti graphics cards.

With NVIDIA announcing that in addition to measures taken with the recent launch of the GeForce RTX 3060, it's "applying a reduced ETH hash rate to newly manufactured GeForce RTX 3080, RTX 3070 and RTX 3060 Ti graphics cards." That is, drastically lowering the efficiency of the number crunching algorithms used to mine.

These new cards are set to begin shipping later this month and in order to ensure customers are aware of which cards represent the newly revised models these GeForce RTX 30 Series cards will be labelled with “Lite Hash Rate” or “LHR” acros retail listings and on the packaging. This will apply to all GeForce RTX 3080, RTX 3070 and RTX 3060 Ti cards being manufactured and sold by NVIDIA's partners. NVIDIA notes that in-game performance will be identical to existing models.

As per our reviews of the RTX 3080, RTX 3070, and RTX 3060 Ti -- the new 30-series range offers up stellar performance alongside cutting-edge features. And with this move to cut-out cryptominers from snapping up stock, the hope is it will bring prices back down to the realm we call Sanity.

"GeForce RTX GPUs have introduced a range of cutting-edge technologies — RTX real-time ray tracing, AI-powered DLSS frame rate booster, NVIDIA Reflex super-fast response rendering for best system latency, and many more — created to meet the needs of gamers and those who create digital experiences," writes NVIDIA. "We believe this additional step will get more GeForce cards at better prices into the hands of gamers everywhere."
