MSI reveals two models of CMP 30HX to mine cryptocurrencies
After the announcement of Nvidia’s CMP (Cryptocurrency Mining Processor) card, intended for cryptocurrency mining, several brands have already launched their customized versions. Gigabyte and Asus are two examples of brands that have already revealed their copies.
Now two more models have been unveiled, this time from MSI. These are versions of the CMP 30HX board, called MSI MINER, and the name itself says everything about its purpose.
The cryptocurrency market requires urgent changes in the segment of some products, such as graphics cards. In particular, the new models from Nvidia have been immensely requested for the practice of extracting cryptocurrencies.
In this sense, the North American manufacturer opted for the development of CMP plates, created exclusively for mining.
According to recent information, the new MSI CMP 30HX cards have now been unveiled. These are two customized versions that the Taiwanese company will launch for miners of digital currencies.
These models were named MSI MINER and are both identical to the performance level. One of the differences concerns the built-in cooling system.
MSI MINER XS
This is one of the models of the MSI mining board. This version uses the same cooling system as the Nvidia GeForce Ventus XS.
This other model uses the same cooling system as Nvidia GeForce ARMOR graphics cards.
Regarding the specifications, these GPUs use the Turing TU116-100 chipset, from GTX 1660 SUPER), with a base frequency of 1530 MHz and Turbo of 1785 MHz. They bring 6 GB of GDDR6 @ 14 GHz memory with a 192-bit interface and 8 pin PCI.e port.
Like other models, the MSI CMP 30 HX offers a hash rate of 26 MH / s for mining Ethereum.
However, there are some disadvantages with this type of boards. Because, if the user wants to resell them, he can only do it to someone who also wants the equipment for cryptocurrency mining. The reason is that these GPUs do not create graphics and therefore cannot be used for other purposes. In addition, the warranty for this equipment is only 3 months.
