Just got a couple of these from EVGA:

Hi torin3,

This email is to notify you that there has been a change to your notification queue status. You previously signed up to be notified when 10G-P5-3885-KR became available, but due to ongoing product availability, you have been moved to the notification queue for 10G-P5-3885-KL, which features NVIDIA LHR. These cards offer the same gaming performance, but with reduced cryptomining performance (Ethereum). The products are identical in every other way. To learn more about NVIDIA LHR, click here.

EVGA has taken these steps to increase availability and speed up the queue for gamers looking to purchase a graphics card. Your notification queue position remains the same. However, if you wish to remain in the notification queue for 10G-P5-3885-KR you may "opt out " of this move; you will be once again placed back in the notification queue with your previous sign-up time. Please note that EVGA strongly recommends against opting out, because there is no ETA for availability and no guarantee that your order will be fulfilled for your original part number. Moreover, once you opt out, you may neither request to be placed back in the queue for 10G-P5-3885-KL, nor request an order notification for 10G-P5-3885-KL; you may only be in one queue at a time.

So, will these have crippled folding? I followed the links, and it seems like it will detect specifically the Ethereum hashing signature, so I think it will be OK for folding, but I don't know for sure.

Dfonda said over in the 3000 series thread his 3060LHR doesnÂ’t take a hit folding.

I asked the same thing after it was brought up.

^ this.

Nvidia has stopped production of the "KR" chips so EVGA will be unable to manufacture them. Your only chance of getting one will be used or through refurbished/RMA cards.
