Graphics cards based on NVIDIA's CMP HX GPUs are finally starting to trickle into the marketplace. So far, we've seen entries from ASUS and Gigabyte. Now, MSI is looking to get in on the action with its CMP 30HX Miner XS. Based on previous leaks, the CMP 30HX Miner XS features NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1660 Super GPU. The card looks like a dead ringer for MSI's GeForce GTX 1660 Super Ventus. The big difference is that the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Ventus has a single HDMI port and three DisplayPort connectors. Given that the CMP 30HX Miner XS doesn't need video outputs since it's dedicated to mining for Ethereum, the I/O plate only features exhaust vents for the coolers. The CMP 30HX Miner XS has 1408...

Ethereum mining seems to be all the rage these days, and companies like NVIDIA are looking to cash in on the crypto mining gold rush. In February, NVIDIA announced its Crypto Mining Processor (CMP) HX family of dedicated Ethereum cards, with hash rates ranging from 26 MH/s for the CMP 30HX up to 80 MH/s for the CMP 90HX. According to NVIDIA, in the middle lays the CMP 40HX, which has a stated hash rate of 36 MH/s. However, the performance of an alleged prototype ASUS CMP 40HX card has been revealed, and it is shaping up to be quite impressive. VideoCardz was sent an image of a rig featuring not one but eight ASUS CMP 40HX cards. And instead of puttering along at the official 36 MH/s hash rate,... Read more...
Mining cryptocurrency is just one small part of the problem that plagues the semiconductor industry related to chip shortages, with the increased demand for GPU compute power. However, NVIDIA has been catering to this market in hopes of alleviating demand pressure on gaming graphics cards with its CMP HX family of cards. The company's OEM partners have gotten in on the crypto fun as well of course. Last week, Gigabyte officially announced its CMP 30HX mining card complete with an abbreviated three month limited warranty. Mining is hard on cards, so manufacturers aren't lining up to extend warranties as long as graphics cards designed for gaming purposes. The CMP 30HX is based on NVIDIA's... Read more...
We got our first look at Gigabyte's first NVIDIA CMP HX card back in early March when a single photo leaked. Today, Gigabyte is ready to get official with the cryptocurrency mining card, designated as the NVIDIA CMP 30HX D6 6G (GV-N30HXD6-6G). As we had already surmised, the CMP 30HX D6 6G is based on NVIDIA's Turing TU116-100 GPU. The GPU features 1408 CUDA cores, a boost clock of 1785MHz, and 6GB of 14 Gbps GDDR6 memory on a 192-bit memory bus. There are no video outputs on the card, and it features a WindForce 2X cooling system with counterrotating 90mm fan blades. There's also a composite copper heat pipe to keep the GPU [relatively] cool. Not surprisingly, given the stresses that these cards... Read more...
It has become increasingly difficult to secure even the most basic entry-level current generation graphics from the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 and AMD Radeon RX 6000 families. Even last-generation cards like the GeForce RTX 20 and Radeon RX 5000 series are in short supply as both gamers and cryptocurrency miners compete for limited inventory. NVIDIA's solution to this problem is to cripple Ethereum mining performance on its GeForce RTX 3060 (and future) graphics cards to dissuade crypto miners and push them towards an all-new Cryptocurrency Mining Processor (CMP) family of GPUs. Not surprisingly, the initial run of CMP 30HX cards has already proven to be quite popular. Now, Hong Kong authorities claim... Read more...
We've been hearing a lot about NVIDIA's looming GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, but the information has mainly been sourced from rumors. However, today we're getting some more concrete evidence of the existence of NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3080 Ti courtesy of the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC). The EEC is a frequent leaker of unreleased computing hardware, and this time around, the organization has provided an early look at no less than 12 GeForce RTX 3080 Ti SKUs from Gigabyte. The EEC filing only gives us the product codes for each graphics cards, but if we parse that info with Gigabyte's existing graphics cards, here's what the lineup will look like: GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Aorus Xtreme Waterforce WB (GV-N308TAORUSX...

NVIDIA said that its first CMP HX GPUs would begin shipping during Q1 2021, and it appears that at least one retailer is jumping the gun on sales. Retailer Microless listed the Palit CMP 30HX (part number NE630HX017J9-1160X) earlier this week but quickly removed the listing. The CMP 30HX is reportedly based on Turing architecture, and Palit's card features 6GB of 14Gbps GDDR6 memory on a 192-bit interface along with base/boost clocks of 1530MHz and 1785MHz, respectively. Looking at those clocks, the CMP 30HX is most assuredly a repurposed GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER graphics card. In this case, NVIDIA uses GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER GPUs deemed defective to be used in these headless... Read more...
In mid-February, NVIDIA announced that it would unleash a new GPU family called the Crypto Mining Processor (CMP HX). To ease some pressure off GeForce RTX 30 supplies, NVIDIA is pushing the CMP HX family as an excellent option for enthusiasts looking to mine for cryptocurrencies like Ethereum. As NVIDIA explained at the time, the GPUs "don't meet the specifications required of a GeForce GPU and, thus, don't impact the availability of GeForce GPUs to gamers."  Just as NVIDIA said in February, Gigabyte is one of its OEM partners that will produce CMP HX cards. Today, we're getting our first look at Gigabyte's CMP 30HX card. You shouldn't be too surprised to see that this card doesn't... Read more...
