That tool that was supposed to unlock the full hash rate of Nvidia LHR cards is actually malware

It turns out that miners looking to extract the maximum hash rates from Nvidia’s Lite Hash Rate RTX 30 series cards have been fooled. The tool does not remove the hash rate limiter, but instead installs malware

Just a few months ago that "tool" was praised by all the tech sites.  They helped spread it.  -_-

 

And the comments.....ugh.  Let's get this clear, yes there are people that use GPU's strictly for profit.  Yes, they buy a lot of GPU's.  Is that a problem for gamers?  No.  The problem is that supply isn't keeping up with demand.  You can't blame people for taking an opportunity with their money or with their hardware that they paid for.  As a gamer, why not mine a little yourself and recoup some of the cost of your hardware?

 

Personally I think all the rage at miners is kind of silly.  We're just pointing fingers at each other in the enthusiast communities without actually holding the people accountable that are responsible for the shortages.  Mining is profitable.  It makes perfect sense to utilize it if you can.  Gaming is fun, so of course that ALSO makes sense as a utilization of the hardware.  Both are "correct" uses.  The finger pointing needs to stop.  GPU's have NEVER been solely for gaming.  We all enjoy hardware for one use or another, why can't we just agree that hardware is cool and its multi-use?  Stop pointing fingers at end users, and start pointing them at the manufacturers, suppliers, and silly arbitrary rules that stop a functioning free market.
