Nvidia Launches Product for Ethereum Mining to End War Between Miners and Gamers
Graphics chip maker Nvidia has announced the launch of NVIDIA CMP, a cryptocurrency mining processor that is specifically designed for Ethereum in its Feb. 18 blog post.
The innovative product doesn’t support graphics, which allows miners to achieve better performance. By removing display outputs, for instance, it was possible to improve airflow conditions.
NVIDIA CMP also consumes less electricity because of its lower voltage and frequency.
At the same time, it also halved the hashrate of GeForce RTX 3060 GPUs to make them less appealing for miners and more accessible for gamers.
Its flagship GPUs have become increasingly popular with miners due to mushrooming profitability of Ethereum mining.
