NVIDIA’s miner-specific CMP lineup has started to hit the retail market, with the 30HX being the first product to go on sale for a whopping $700. This is basically a GeForce GTX 1660 (TU116 GPU) die without the display outputs, optimized for mining with a fully open, airflow-optimized bracket configured to allow a greater number of GPUs to be controlled by one CPU.
The 30HX is the lowest-end CMP GPU with an Ether hash Rate of just 26 MH/s, the same as a GeForce GTX 1660 Super or a Radeon RX 5500 XT. It comes with 6GB of memory, a 192-bit bus, and a TBP (total board power) of 125W. It features GDDR6 memory running at 14 Gbps, resulting in a memory bandwidth of 336 GB/s.
|Architecture||Turing (TU116)||Turing (TU106)||Turing (TU104)||Ampere (GA102)|
|Ethereum Hash Rate(1)||26 MH/s||36 MH/s||45 MH/s||86 MH/s|
|Rated Power(2)||125 W||185 W||250 W||320 W|
|Power Connectors(2)||1x 8-pin||1x 8-pin||2x 8-pin||2x 8-pin|
The higher-end 90HX CMP GPU is based on the same die (GA102) as the Ampere flagship, the GeForce RTX 3080, and offers an incredible hash rate of 86 MH/s. However, like the latter, there’s little chance of finding it in the retail market anytime soon. The 40X and 50X are based on the larger Turing dies: 40HX>TU106>RTX 2060; 50X>TU104>RTX 2070, and as such should soon start appearing at online and offline stores, sooner or later.
