VideoCardz has confirmed that NVIDIA’s top CMP cryptomining GPU, the 90HX, is Ampere based. In addition to a similar hash rate (86 MH/s), the 90HX also uses the same PG123 board and 8 nm GA102-100 GPU as the GeForce RTX 3080. The other CMP GPUs are Turing based.

NVIDIA announced its cryptomining cards a little over a week ago. The specifications for the CMP 90HX hinted that something was different. With a TDP of 320 watts and an estimated hash rate nearly double that of the 50HX but with the same amount of 10 GB memory, it clearly stood apart. Whether it uses GDDR6X like the GeForce RTX 3080 is unknown.

NVIDIA’s CMP 90HX is expected to release in Q2. NVIDIA has indicated these cards will only be available from authorized partners such as ASUS, Colorful, EVGA, GIGABYTE, MSI, Palit, and PC Partner. Prices for the CMP 90HX and specifications such as core and memory clock speeds have not been revealed.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
