NVIDIA CMP 170HX mining card exposed, with an efficiency of 164MH/s – E-ENERGY HOLDING LIMITED

Recently, some netizens shared an NVIDIA CMP 170HX mining card in the online forum on the other side. According to the name, it can offer a computing power near 170MH/s.


The CMP 170HX mining card appears to be made by NVIDIA itself. It is various from the previous 30HX, 40HX, 50HX, and 90HX provided to cooperative makers. The shape of the card resembles the A100 sped up calculating card. It utilizes passive cooling and inhabits 2 slots without display screen. The output and power supply part is a bit odd. It is not 2 PCIe 8pins, however CPU 8pins. Most of them must be utilized through changing.

GPU-Z can currently acknowledge most requirements, which must be approximately the like the main requirements. The GPU core just reveals the 20C2 number, and there are 4480 CUDA processors, which is less than the 4864 of the RTX 3060 Ti. CMP 170HX might be castrated by the A100, or it might be a seriously problematic A100 remake. Anyway, it is more lucrative to make it into a mining card.

The memory part utilizes HBM2e. The initial A100 is set up with 40 and 80GB, while the CMP 170HX is just 8GB. The bandwidth is still 4096bit and the bandwidth is as high as 1.5TB/s. The core clock is 1140MHz, Boost 1410MHz.

It is likewise worth pointing out that the CMP 170HX is secured PCIe 1.1 x4, so most likely it can just be utilized for mining. It must be difficult to alter it to a computing card.

The ETH mining efficiency of the 170HX mining card has to do with 164MH/s and the power intake is 250W, however the core frequency is delicate to temperature level, and the frequency will be decreased if it surpasses 70 degrees.

If the power intake is restricted to 190W, the computing power will drop to 158MH/s, the loss is not big, however the energy effectiveness ratio is 27% greater, which is more power-saving. In addition, the memory part cannot be overclocked, so optimization can just decrease the power intake limitation.
