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.

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.
