NVIDIA’s announcement of their crypto mining processors surprised everyone but they did not provide any details on the specifications. Now NVIDIA has confirmed that the first two CMP Series will not be based on Ampere architecture, and it turns out that the RTX 30 will not be affected.
There were rumors that due to higher power consumption, NVIDIA would be using parts based on previous architectures, but later on, NVIDIA confirmed that processors could not meet GeForce standards.
Unfortunately, the latest 461.72 drivers have now confirmed that the 30HX and 40HX mining processors are indeed based on an old Turing architecture which means that The CMP 40HX will be based on a custom TU106 processor while the 30HX will be based on a TU116 based GPU.
NVIDIA has only announced the power rating and memory configurations of the upcoming CMP processors. The 30HX and 40HX models will be released in the first quarter, while 50HX and 90HX will be released after April.
