Pre-orders Are Apparently Open for Nvidia CMP 30HX Mining GPUs
It seems that Nvidia is getting ready to start shipping their CMP HX Dedicated GPUs for Professional Crypto Mining that were announced last month. The company is apparently taking pre-orders from their partners for deliveries starting probably in early April for the lowest-end mining model – NVIDIA CMP 30HX D6 6G. Nvidia has rated the 6GB CMP 30HX GPU at 26 MH/s with 125W of power usage for Ethereum mining, though with further optimizations 28-32 MH/s could be possible (like on RTX 2060 or GTX 1660 models).
The not so good news here, as we have expected unfortunately, is that you will be getting a “pro mining GPU” that is more-expensive, but comes without a video outputs, just 90 days warranty instead of 2-3 years and at a higher price than an alternative desktop GPU that could deliver the same mining performance. The expected end-user price for the NVIDIA CMP 30HX could be 10-20% higher than the already pretty high prices that RTX 2060 or GTX 1660 GPUs are available with the same level of performance.
So, the only advantage that you may get by purchasing the NVIDIA CMP 30HX D6 6G GPUs for mining is that you should probably be able to order in big quantities, something that is still hard to achieve with the problematic availability of GeForce RTX 2060 or GTX 1660 GPUs. Though you will have to pre-order and pay in advance for these Dedicated GPUs for Professional Crypto Mining from Nvidia and wait a few weeks for them to be delivered to you.
