The manufacturer of video cards Nvidia is preparing for release a special solution for mining - the accelerator Inno3D P102-100, which is an analogue of the video game card GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. This is reported by Hi-Tech.Mail.Ru.
The Nvidia P102-100 graphics processor received 3,200 CUDA cores with a base frequency of 1582 MHz. The card comes with 5 GB of GDDR5X memory with a clock speed of 11 Gb / s and a bandwidth of about 400 GB / s.
For mining, this means about 47 MH / s in Ethereum, 660 Sol / s in ZCash and 879 H / s in Monero. For cooling the accelerator meets a two-slot cooler, it is also possible to have a VRM radiator.
The card supports PCIe Gen1 x4 interface, but comes with a standard PCIe connector. The length of the map will be 21.5 cm, width - 12.5 cm, and it will occupy two slots. The card will additionally have two 8-pin PCI-E Power connectors. The maximum power consumption is estimated at 250 watts.
On the card there are no I / O ports, it is designed only for mining, so in time it will be difficult to sell it.
Experts suggest that the cost of Nvidia P102-100 will be lower than that of the analogue - GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, but the exact figures are not yet called.
Recall, plans to launch on the market about 300,000 specialized accelerators designed specifically for the mining of crypto-currencies, representatives of Nvidia announced back in June 2017. Then they noted that the new video accelerators would be deprived of any video outputs, they would receive a modified printed circuit board designed to take into account constant loads, as well as a slightly different cooling system.
