The mining trend is becoming more and more fierce. Game players can't buy cards at all, and NVIDIA has finally made a move: the mining efficiency of RTX 3060 is deliberately reduced by half, and a special mining card CMP (cryptocurrency encryption processor) is launched. NVIDIA said that CMP does not do graphics processing, does not display output, and the core peak voltage and frequency are lower. Everything is only for mining, mainly Ethereum, which is sold by authorized partners.
According to the latest news, the full name of this product isCMP HX series, including four different models of 30hx, 40hx, 50hx, 90hx, authorized dealers include
At present, we don't know what CMP HX series mine cards look like, and we don't know whether their core is customized, or the existing GPU is shielded, or the defective GPU is reused, but the basic specifications are available.
The hash power of 30hx, 40hx, 50hx and 90hx is 26MH / s, 36mh / s, 45mh / s and 96mh / s respectively, and the power consumption is 125w, 185w, 250W and 320W respectively.
For special mine cards, the efficiency is not high, especially considering the power consumption,After calculation, the energy efficiency is only about 0.20mh/s/w, even the most high-end 90hx is only 0.27mh/s/w, and the RTX 30 series is 0.42-0.53mh/s/w.
however,The advantage of CMP HX series mine cards is that they are cheapIt is said that 90hx is only about $600, while RTX 3080, which has a slightly higher computing power, starts at $699, which is far more than that.
The sales details of CMP HX series have not been announced yet, so the mine owners can pay attention to it. But if the game players want to have a special mine card, the game card will be able to escape the disaster. They really think too much. No matter from the perspective of production capacity or efficiency, RTX 30 series is still an absolute hot spot.
