Report: Galax Preps GeForce RTX 3060, 3060 Ti With Cryptomining Limiters

Galax is reportedly readying more GeForce RTX boards with limited hash rates.

Palit Microsystems, which owns Galax, Gainward and KFA2, is reportedly working on a range of GeForce RTX 30-series graphics cards that feature cryptocurrency mining limiters which severely degrade the financial viability of using the cards for mining. Last week, we learned that Palit was prepping GeForce RTX 3070 and 3080 graphics cards with limited hash rates (LHR), and this week VideoCardz reported that the GeForce RTX 3060/3060 Ti LHR boards are also on the way from Galax.

The new Galax GeForce RTX 3060/3060 Ti For Gamers boards will be based on Nvidia's LHR GA106 and GA104 GPUs featuring new IDs and paired with appropriate firmware, according to VideoCardz, which cited Galax as its source; however, the cards aren’t currently listed on the vendor’s site.

Palit's FG-series GeForce RTX 3060 will reportedly carry 12GB of GDDR6 memory with a 192-bit interface; whereas, the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti will come with 8GB of GDDR6 memory with a 256-bit interface. Both will be equipped with custom triple-fan cooling systems, but their clock rates will be in line with Nvidia's recommendations: up to 1,777 MHz for the RTX 3060 and up to 1,665 MHz for the RTX 3060 Ti.
