NVIDIA Annoucnes CMP 30HX, 40HX, 50HX and 90HX GPUs For Mining, Cripples Hash Rate Of RTX 3060 
 
NVIDIA has finally conceded to the overwhelming mining demand facing the GPU market right now and launched a lineup of dedicated cryptocurrency mining GPUs (can we even call them that considering they have no display port?) called CMP. This is short for Cryptocurrency Mining Processor While AIBs have previously rolled out mining variants of GPUs without display ports, this is the first time we are seeing an official product launch straight from NVIDIA itself. It is accompanied by an action that will likely be very controversial: software limiting the hash rate of NVIDIA's RTX 3060 GPU (which will be launching on the 25th) to just 50% of its actual rate.

NVIDIA launches Cryptocurrency Mining Processor (CMP) series and halves RTX 3060 hash rate

Before we go any further, NVIDIA is announcing a total of 4 CMP (GPUs?) out of which two, the NVIDIA CMP 30HX and 40HX will launch in Q1 and CMP 50HX and 90HX will launch in Q2. At this moment it is unclear which HX correlates to which GeForce GPU although you can make some decent guesses using the memory size (which correlates to bus width and can give away the rough model number) we can also use the hash rate and TDP to arrive at similar conclusions. With hash rates of up to 86 MH/s (and these are likely unoptimized considering NVIDIA always underpromises and over-delivers), it is clear that the company has plans to ensure a full lineup.

https://videocardz.com/ne...mit-mining-performance
 
 
so buying 3060s isn't gonna help miners - Nvidia is putting in a software block for mining (well a 50% block)
 
 
 
why try to dumb down the card - why not put faster ram on it since mining needs faster ram - not faster clock on the gpu
GDDR7? or HBM might work better
 
Basically build a mining card period - one with twice or triple  the hashrate of any GPU - not dumb down the GPU line
 
 
second ...how do they get stock out the door when we don't have stock Now?????
just where are the FABs gonna appear from - lala land??? 
 
 
third gimping the 3060's has just made the 3070 the target GPU now for miners and takes away better cards for gamers
 
 
my question is they just gimping the middle cards or all of the line???

    This article is referring to the RTX 3060, not the 3060 Ti. The 3060 was never going to be a good mining card for Ethereum with the 192-bit bus with GDDR6 memory and for other algos that would use the GPU, the 3584 cuda cores isn't going to do well.
     
    Once Ethereum goes POS (Proof Of Stake), the 3080 will be the card to have and the rumored 3080 Ti of course would be even better. Currently the 3060 Ti isn't that good at other algos and the 3070 is borderline.
     
    However, once Ethereum goes POS, there will be another crypto coin that takes it's place for mining and it's value will skyrocket. Then everyone will switch to mining that and knock the mining difficulty up. Right now with all the people mining Ethereum, it's difficulty is getting harder. Cards that only do 40MH/s are already starting to suffer as they can't keep up and turn in work shares fast enough, even 60MH/s cards are starting to see this. Usually see this at night time when people are sleeping and start mining, companies set their systems to mine after work hours, plus there are ASIC miners that can do Ethereum, which is knocking the difficulty up. Nobody is buying Ethereum ASIC systems as we know it's going POS, but there are enough out there to up the difficulty dramatically.
     
    Ethereum may just go down in flames once it goes POS. The only reason IMO it holds such a value right now is because of mining. Once mining it is gone, there is really no use for it. I can't think of a place right now that I buy from that will take Ethereum as a payment method, but they do take Bitcoin.
     
    Anyways, mining specific cards is not a good strategy for Nvidia. These cards would need a minimum GDDR6X 382-bit memory bus and pack a ton of cuda cores before normal people would buy them instead of a conventional graphics card. Anything under that is just a paperweight in the making.

    Would software limiting it even work well? or would people just use doctored drivers to get around it?
     
    And people would be the mining cards because they are in stock, even if they aren't all that good for it, I'd guess.

    Really sounds pretty good for gamers but the problem is people can mine on the current drivers. Nothing will probably happen with new drivers that miners will need as it’s likely to be updated to get games working better then to increase mining speed.

    Any experienced miner knows to stay away from mining specific cards. Nvidia would have to make it worth it before one would. Minimum GDDR6X with 382-bit memory bus and pack a ton of cuda cores in it or it's a paperweight in no time, maybe even the day Nvidia launches a card under those specs.

    im saying better than gddr6x because at 110c it's getting pretty hot
     
    they need to really design a separate line FOR MINING with ram specs HIGHER than you need for Gaming
    that and you may need better cooling for the ram than current cards provide - ie like watercooling
     cmp30hx 4x 25MH(125 watt each) is 100MH for 500Watt
     one 3090 running 350watts is 105MH
     
    AYE the smaller cards be cheaper but your power usage is higher over long haul the 3090 is better choice

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 tested in mining

     
    Today NVIDIA announced that GeForce RTX 3060 drivers will be able to detect if the user is mining cryptocurrency. This will automatically limit the performance by 50%, which will basically render mining on this card unprofitable. This is exactly what happened to the graphics card that was tested by CryptoLeo.
    Just a minute or two after starting, the hash rate has dropped from 41.5 MH/s to 26-24 MH/s. Since the author of the video has no drivers for this card, this would suggest that the anti-mining algorithm is not present in the software, but rather implemented in the BIOS itself.

    I suspect here's a bunch of 3070/80/90 chips that didn't bin for retail gaming level production but will work for mining.

    The one thing that I was thinking is what is the long term outlook for the miner. If you buy a retail GPU and use drivers before NVIDIA did the limit you can then put the card on eBay in the future for a gamer to maybe want. The mining card really has no value to anyone when it becomes unprofitable to mine with so eBay to get a little bit back off of it isn’t really an option.

    Should be an interesting release of drivers coming up.  What if the driver is not updated, can the card still detect mining?

    nVidia is taking over the world.
    They just bought Arm.

    I wouldn't be surprised to hear that they have a cryptomining dept where they run a whole bunch of cards for themselves.
    They would always have the latest hardware at the cheapest prices, and basically this would be a QA dept that they could write off.

    nVidia specifically called out EVGA as one of the AIB that will be producing CMPs. I wonder how long before EVGA announces their lineup of CMPs and adds it to their product line for pre-order/notification.
     
    Also I do believe that's a way for nVidia to get better yields out of the 30-series wafers. They'll be able to use some of the dies that don't quite pass GPU certification in those cards without impacting the availability of actual graphics cards.

    From what I have gathered is these cards will be missing the RT and Tensor cores, plus probably no video out ports.

    I just saw an article on tweaktown about them. I do not see them being sought after by miners. Miners love our gaming GPU’s because when they are done with them and the next new shiny card is out or about to come out they can turn around and sell their cards getting some/most/all/profit in money back.

    Yeah, that's what I meant. Dies that don't have enough good RT and Tensor cores will get re-purposed for these.

    All depends on how much they sell for. If you can get a 90HX for half the price of a 3080 (comparable hash rate) then it could make more sense to buy the 90HX, especially considering the cooling solution will probably be designed to cool the memory more than anything else.

    The 50% crypto nerf only applies to the vanilla 3060, NVIDIA confirmed it won't gimp already launched models.

    NVIDIA Crypto Mining Processor 90HX card is based on Ampere GA102-100 GPU

     
    We receive a confirmation from a board partner that only one CMP model is based on Ampere.
     
    We have a solid confirmation on the CMP series from our source. Only one out of four CMP HX graphics cards will feature Ampere architecture, which means that only one card will utilize Samsung 8nm process. The CMP 90HX is based on a PG132 board (the same as RTX 3080) and it will feature GA102-100 GPU. This model will have 320W and 10GB by default. Our source has no information on the memory type yet nor how many CUDA cores does this chip has.
    Meanwhile, CMP 30HX, 40HX, and 50HX are all based on 12nm Turing architecture. We have already seen confirmation on 30HX and 40HX through the driver update. NVIDIA has already provided the support for these two mining cards, while CMP 50HX and 90HX are not expected to launch till Q2. The 50HX is in fact based on TU102 GPU-100 GPU and the board design is a derivative of RTX 2080 Ti (PG150).
    The name of new CMP mining GPUs reflects what we saw during the previous mining boom. Nearly 3 years ago NVIDIA launched its mining-oriented P104-100 and P106-100 models, which were only available through the board partners.
    NVIDIA mining cards do not offer the same specifications as their gaming counterparts. The specifications are not set in stone, but we are trying to get more details on that. It is expected that mining GPUs have unfunctional or broken Tensor, RT, TMUs, or ROPs. Which renders them unfit for the GeForce badge, but still good enough to serve as a salve in a mining farm doing complex mathematical equations rewarded in cryptocurrency.
    NVIDIA based mining cards lack display connectors and often offer the cheapest cooling solutions that the manufacturer has a surplus of.

    This shows a total lack of understanding the problem. Instead of disabling it, they cripple it when Bitcoin is something like $50,000 right now? Crippled processing is still profitable, so this is all misdirection. They want you to buy the dedicated mining cards from them. This is all viral marketing nonsense. They don't want the supply of the cards to be more than the demand. At this point i believe they have a hand in this nonsense.

    Basic Marketing
    1. Create a problem in the name of helping
    2. Solve the problem with another product or 2 products that are each less useful
    3. Enjoy selling CMP cards knowing they will go in the trash when mining ends as they cannot be used for other stuff
    4. Sell the same person a 3060 and a CMP so they can game and mine
     
    I don't like to be told what I can do with the things I own. Especially when that involves reaching out and disabling my stuff so they can try to make me buy more stuff.
     
    If they can not make enough GPUs how are they going to meet demand by complicating things and making people need to buy more?

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti not for miners

     
    According to new information, all future GeForce RTX 30 graphics cards are to feature ETH mining limiter.
     
    A known leaker who revealed NVIDIA Ampere specifications months ahead of the initial launch has confirmed that the next installment in GeForce RTX 30 series, the RTX 3080 Ti will also feature a crypto mining limiter. According to a tweet posted by @kopite7kimi, NVIDIA will be implementing the same mining limiter that debuted with GeForce RTX 3060 for their next high-end model.
    This information should not be a surprise to anyone, because NVIDIA hinted that future RTX 30 releases may have this technology built into the firmware. We already independently confirmed that NVIDIA has recently provided this update on RTX 3080 Ti to AIBs. What Kopite did not post yet is that this feature will also launch for (as it is now listed in the roadmap) GeForce RTX 3070 Ti.

    really last survey i saw
    13 % it won't make a diff
    12 % thought it would help
    75% thought Nvidia is on the wrong track gimping hardware - best solution would be to make more chips period
     
    gimping will only hurt programmers and scientist who also will be hurt by gimping process - their are many algorithms that will be hurt by this
     
    what happen to science first?  
     
     
    let put the shoe on the other foot
    what would people be saying if Nvidia gimped gaming so the cards could  be bought for scientific reasons - rather than playing doom - blaming doom players... so they gimp the cards
     their would be an outcry - no don't you dare gimp my cards - you can't introduce features - and then remove some if some you have a yield issue and have troubles supplying enough to everyone - so gimp one group over another??

    Nvidia is just asking for a class action suit if they released a card that was marketed as capable of one thing and they cripple it after the fact.

    My thoughts exactly...is heading to that direction as per the article

    Those who abuse power, are nothing but scumbags!
     The challenge of power is how to use it and not abuse it. When you abuse it, it reverses on you and it hurts you.The abuse of power that seems to create the most unhappiness is when a person uses personal power to get ahead without regards to the welfare of others, people are obsessed with it. You can take a nice person and turn them into a slob, into an insane being, craving power, destroying anything that stands in their way.

    ROFL and how do the 75% figure nVidia should just "make more chips period"? Do you think they're sitting on unused manufacturing capacity? How long do you think it takes to build a silicon factory?
     
    Just because a lot of people think something doesn't mean that something is true or possible. Especially when those people are ignorant of the topic at hand.

    Unless you consider mining Ethereum "science", there will be no impact on the work of programmers or scientists. It's already been established that other crypto mining algorithms aren't affected so the chances that legitimate scientific algorithms will be affected is nil or close to it.

    **** are you even on about? They're not changing the features of any card that have already been released.

    That's why they're not doing that.

    Nvidia is making 3/4 of these cards from turing architecture parts that are laying around. This is actually smart of them. Obviously these mining cards will be worthless outside of mining and the stats sucks.... but if they are cheap then.... maybe worth it.

    If they had a ton of samsung 8nm memory laying around and the requisite ingredients to make more 30xx cards... they would bc their goal is to make money.

    Im a miner and not a gamer... and it is HELLA frustrating trying to find these cards anywhere close to retail... Im sure it is even more frustrating for gamers. 

    If the price of these mining cards is not extremely attractive, then only morons will buy them and it will be a flop... but if they have the parts sitting somewhere taking up space, then they have nothing to lose. 

    Whomever said that when ETH goes POS it will be 'useless' because you cannot spend it... literally has no idea of what is happening in the crypto world... On-chain DeFi protocols have turned Ethereum into one of the most interesting projects in the world. Literally no one uses ETH to buy **** in the real world... not a use case nor was it ever a use case. Also, that same person said that there will be a new PoW coin taht emerges and shoots up in value... also false. 

    PoW will start dying a slow and ugly death. The commercial and enterprise use of blockchains and DeFi at large needs speed and cheap transactions. 99% of GPU mineable coins are all ready trash with no use case or liquidity. This will further be accelerated by the hash power leaving ETH focusing on them... People mining crypto actually put downside pressure on coins as miners dump them... Eth goes up in value in the face of miners dumping bc there is an actual use case (DeFi)... Even marginal coins like Grin or ETC... their profitability will be demolished if even 20% of existing ETH hash gets pointed at them when ETH goes PoS. 

    This is the last great mining run... right now and for about 1.5-2 more years before ETH2.0.... enjoy it while its here... and this fact alone makes Nvidias 'uninformed' choice to roll out these "mining" cards even more hilarious... You put out a card with no resell value and old gen / dog **** hash rates... at thet top of the 9th inning of PoW mining... thinking that miners will stop running bots to get. the 60ti's/70's/80's... Nvidia is at best, completely out of touch with reality... like some people in this thread. 

    Someone else referenced BTCs price as being a driver of GPU sales / Nvidias supply problem.... BTC hasnt been GPU mineable for 10+ years.

    They told me in the chat it is just the 3060 at this time. I contacted them because I am not buying a limited card. I will go with AMD or a different model. 
     
    Maybe this is just to make news and stir things up. I believe the is about $$$ rather than gamers or miners.
    Eth is trying to take a big step away from mining as soon as July. I wish they would focus on making more cards rather than designing new CMP card and wasting all this time and effort locking 3060.
    If they wanted to make incredible mining cards they would sell.
     
    This card nerfing is an irritating stunt that is not going to help any consumer or the landfill.
     
    Now that Nvida has started to interfere with what you do with your GPU where is the line were they stop? Sorry that GPU is not licensed for your game so low performance. Or not for video editing......ect. They have crossed a line into a foggy place. Now that this line has been crossed there is no actual need for them to stop interfering with what you can do with your stuff.

    EIP-1559 implemetation in July this year is coming . The ETH Developers have voted for it on their March 3rd conference call .
    After the London hard-fork , EIP-1559 goes live on the network. Plus, it paves the road to faster Eth 2.0 transition as well .
     
    Considering all those news , I was really wondering who was going to buy those Nvidia CMP cards ?
