Nvidia has announced a new line of GPUs specifically designed to mine the Ethereum cryptocurrency.
CMP for miners, GeForce for gamers
Nvidia has stated that its Cryptocurrency Mining Processors (CMP) will be available in four variants: 30HX, 40HX, 50HX, and 90HX, with each number approximating the device's hash rate in MH / s. The 90HX variant has the highest Ethereum hash rate of 86 MH / s, while the 30HX variant has the lowest hash rate of 26 MH / s.
The products will be available through select Nvidia partners such as ASUS, Colorful, EVGA, Gigabyte, MSI, Palit, and PC Partner. The 30HX and 40HX variants will be available in the first quarter of 2021, while the 50HX and 90HX will be available in the second quarter of 2021.
Nvidia has emphasized that they want to create a clear distinction between their gaming and mining customer bases. The CMP line of GPUs lacks display outputs, has improved airflow, and has a lower peak core voltage and frequency to improve mining efficiency. Meanwhile, your non-mining RTX 3060 card will come with software that detects and cuts the hash rate in half.
By doing this, the firm hopes to improve the availability of its GeForce products, which are geared towards gamers, while its CMP line will meet the needs of miners.
In the past 30 days, Ethereum's native ETH token has risen by a staggering 54.2%. Ethereum is fast approaching the $ 2,000 mark. Currently, the price of ETH is $ 1,934.
