A couple of weeks ago we announced that the software tool NBMiner had managed to partially overcome the mining protection that Nvidia added to its GeForce RTX 30 LHR (Low Hash Rate) GPUs, and it is that through this simple tool, the GPUs capable of mining, instead of offering 50% performance compared to Original GPUs mining Ethereum, now capable of offering up to 70% of this performance.
That 70% will be a thing of the past shortly, as the latest rumors indicate that the tool will be updated “imminently” to offer a yield of at least 80 percent, making it clear that the ultimate goal is to offer a yield close to 100%, thus causing miners to buy only gaming GPUs for Ethereum mining instead of resorting to Nvidia CMP, which with inflated prices and, without video outputs, are a serious problem when reselling these GPUs in the future compared to a GeForce RTX 30 LHR that you can sell to gamers.
At the time of writing, Ethereum hovers around $ 3,180, a huge growth compared to the $ 1,740 that was hovering at the end of July, and about $ 1,000 to reach a new all-time high. Due to the fact that the profitability has increased remarkably again, the mining of this cryptocurrency has become popular again.
