Although NVIDIA claims that the CMP lineup doesn’t affect the graphics card supply of gamers, the truth is that they are based on the same dies as mainstream gaming GPUs: TU116, TU106, TU104, and the GA102. The Turing parts are the same used to manufacture the GTX 1650, RTX 2060, 2070, and 2080. As for the top-end CMP product, the 90HX is based on the GA102, the same die that powers the RTX 3080, 3090, and the upcoming 3080 Ti. So, the CMP cards are actually taking a share of gamers’ supply, even if NVIDIA is removing the display connectors from the cards. Related:
