MSI has listed a new cryptomining card, the CMP 50HX MINER. This GPU is designed for mining and features reduced cores, memory specs, display connectivity, and slower PCIe port. It is the second-ranked CMP model, below the 90HX and above the 30HX and 40HX. This GPU has been suspected to be based on an NVIDIA RTX 2080 Ti, and this appears to be the case. Its hash rate is somewhere between an NVIDIA RTX 2080 SUPER and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.

From a design perspective, the MSI CMP 50HX MINER is likely based on RTX 2080 Ti AERO or RTX 2080 AERO. The PCB is likely the same as TU102 based model, but the blower-type cooler with a small Plexi window is clearly from the non-Ti AERO. MSI has kept the backplate but they completely removed display connectors.
