Some time ago, Nvidia released the CMP crypto mining processor, indicating that this is a choice made to prevent crypto miners from robbing players of game graphics cards. The launch of CMP mining processors is to make money, not to allow gamers to buy game graphics cards. Because the CMP mining processor will definitely affect the production capacity of game graphics cards.
Recently, videocardz learned from sources that among the four CMP crypto mining processors launched by Nvidia, the top 90HX uses the Ampere-based GA102 core which will obviously affect the RTX 30 series graphics cards with limited production capacity.
The hash rate of CMP 90HX up to 86MH/s is far behind the other three mining processors. Now it is clear that it uses the GA102-100 GPU core made by Samsung 8nm process, and it is the same as the RTX 3080. It is a PG132 board. In addition, the 320W TDP and 10GB memory are enough to show that its ingredients are quite luxurious.
The CMP 50HX, 40HX, and 30HX, which are poorly positioned, all use a 12nm process Turing architecture chip, namely TU102 GPU-100 GPU, TU106-100, and TY116-100. The PCB board used by CMP 50HX is similar to the PG150 of RTX 2080Ti.
According to Nvidia’s previous announcement, CPM 50HX and 90HX will be launched in the second quarter of this year, and CMP 30HX and 40HX will be launched in March this year. Consumers in need can go to Nvidia’s partners to buy.
