NVIDIA is launching a new GPU lineup called CMP – Cryptocurrency Mining Processor, aimed at Ethereum mining specifically. This is being done in an effort to make RTX GPUs available to actual gamers/content creators, with separate mining hardware lineup that should help in clearing the roadblocks in the stock allocation of RTX GPUs.

NVIDIA CMP HX For Mining Cryptocurrency

NVIDIA is acknowledging just how dire the situation has become regarding new GPU launches not going smoothly, and with the RTX 3060 releasing soon, it makes sense to announce the CMP.

Speaking of the RTX 3060, which is bound to be an easier gateway into mining thanks to its lower cost, NVIDIA is making some smart moves.

RTX 3060 software drivers are designed to detect specific attributes of the Ethereum cryptocurrency mining algorithm, and limit the hash rate, or cryptocurrency mining efficiency, by around 50 per cent.

Enter NVIDIA CMP HX – Made For Miners

NVIDIA CMPs are mining-focused GPUs with features specifically dialled for that operation only. This includes the lack of display outputs, lower peak voltages and frequency. They are also designed with more airflow in mind, which are (in their words) ‘configured to allow a greater number of GPUs to be controlled by one CPU’.
