One of the first Nvidia CMP 30HX models (via momomo_us) has emerged at Microless, a retailer in Dubai, for $723.84. The graphics card is part of Nvidia’s latest Cryptocurrency Mining Processor (CMP) lineup that’s suppose to convince cryptocurrency miners to lay off GeForce gaming graphics cards.
The Palit Nvidia GeForce CMP 30HX (NE630HX017J9-1160X) arrives with a 1,530 MHz base clock and a 1,785 MHz boost clock. More importantly, the graphics card features 6GB of GDDR6 memory that clocks in at 14 Gbps. Leveraging a 192-bit memory interface, the graphics card supplies a memory bandwidth of up to 336 GBps.
Although Microless didn’t reveal the core count, the CMP 30HX is expected to wield 1,408 CUDA cores since it’s derived from the GeForce GTX 1660 Super (Turing). Built for mining Ethereum, the Palit Nvidia GeForce CMP 30HX doesn’t come with any display outputs.
Rated for 125W, the Palit Nvidia GeForce CMP 30HX only depends on a single 8-pin PCIe power connector. The graphics card delivers Ethereum mining performance up to 26 MH/s before optimizations.
The value added tax (VAT) rate in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is 5%, so the Palit Nvidia GeForce CMP 30HX should cost around $689.37. Keep in mind that computer hardware is frequently more expensive outside of the U.S., though. Besides, we don’t know how much of the price is due to the retailer’s markup on the Palit Nvidia GeForce CMP 30HX.
Due to the graphics card shortage and cryptocurrency mining craze, graphics cards are obnoxiously expensive right now. Custom GeForce GTX 1660 Super models sell between $700 and $800, so it looks like the CMP 30HX isn’t completely dead on arrival, but there are cheaper options out there.
