MSI: Nvidia CMP 50HX Miner released
MSI has a Graphics card specially launched for miners, as reported by wccftech. The graphics card is based on an Nvidia CMP 50XH graphics chip, which specializes in mining tasks and is based on the TU102-100, which was also used in an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. The MSI Nvidia CMP 50HX Miner is intended for a PCIe 1.0 slot in x4 format and has a hashrate of 45 MH / s as a measure of suitability for mining the crypto currency Ethereum. The GPU effectively offers 3584 suitable cores for this purpose, which is slightly less than the number of shader units in the TU102-100. The GPU clocks at up to 1545 megahertz, with 10GB GDDR6 RAM available, which are connected with 320 bits and enable a transmission speed of 14 Gbps. There are two PCIe 8-pin connectors for the power requirement, which is specified as 225 watts, and the card is also 26.8 centimeters long and 898 grams in weight.
Nothing is known about availability and prices – in terms of hashrate performance, the graphics card is slightly below that of an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080, which in turn is currently over the counter from 1350 euros, but also requires around 100 watts more power. Whether the new graphics card from MSI can ensure that one or the other miner uses this model instead of a normal gamer graphics card, of course, cannot be predicted, especially since the availability, as mentioned, is not known. In general, the price trend for graphics cards is currently a little down, as we have just reported in a special and also in a news item.
