Nvidia 30xx series old vs new (LHR) identification.

By now it should be clear that a new retail 30 series card could be the new LHR series even if it’s not clearly marked on the retail package. Yes vendors are supposed to brand the packages as such but as we’ve seen they obviously are not all doing so. unless a sales rep can explicitly say one way or the other you won’t really know what you’re getting until you unbox it and plug it in. Below I’ve listed the part numbers for the old (non LHR) and the new (nerfed) die part numbers and the embedded Device IDs. This intended to help the less geek oriented souls among us.

The Device ID can be seen with the free GPUZ applet or in windows device manager video card properties.

**Original RTX 30 series**:
Hash ETH at full potential.

* GeForce RTX 3090 – **GA102-300** (PCI Device ID: **2204**)

* GeForce RTX 3080 – **GA102-200** (PCI Device ID: **2206**)

* GeForce RTX 3070 – **GA104-300** (PCI Device ID: **2484**)

* GeForce RTX 3060 Ti – **GA104-200** (PCI Device ID: **2486**)

* GeForce RTX 3060 – **GA106-300** (PCI Device ID: **2503**)

–> RTX 3060 2503 original LHR bypass possible.

**New RTX 30 LHR series**:
No known fix exists for ETH and likely won’t be.

* GeForce RTX 3080 – **GA102-202** (PCI Device ID: **2216**)

* GeForce RTX 3070 – **GA104-302** (PCI Device ID: **2488**)

* GeForce RTX 3060 Ti – **GA104-202** (PCI Device ID: **2489**)

* GeForce RTX 3060 – **GA106-302** (PCI Device ID: **2504**)

As you can see the last digit of each part number is changed from a zero to a two.

  1. Lhr will be broken. Nvidia does not have an extensive background in hardware security like Apple do. No way their shareholders would accept an expensive hardware based solution. It will be mostly driver based. I doubt they added a Secure Enclave chip like Apple do.
