The NVIDIA P102-100 Cryptocurrency Mining Card Surfaces

Well it looks like the first NVIDIA cryptocurrency mining card has surfaced. While NVIDIA has taken steps to ensure their graphics cards get in the hands of gamers at the same time they are keen to provide cryptominers with the necessary hardware. The GP102-100 will make use of the same GP102 chip that is used in the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti and GTX Titan Xp graphics cards. NVIDIA has made some modifications to lower the cost while maintaining the hash rate. Basically you have a GP102 chip with less memory channels, shader cores, and memory.

Inno3D’s P102-100 is the first card to show up. The card features 3200 CUDA cores clocked at 1582 MHz as well as 5 GB of GDDR5X memory running at 11 Gbps across a 320-bit wide memory interface. As far as cooling goes Inno3D is using their Twin X2 cooling solution to cool the card, which is a dual fan design with 5 heatpipes. Since this is mining-orientated card it does lack a display bracket as well as display outputs. Only requires four PCIe lanes to function as well. As far as power goes the card draws power from a pair of 8-pin PCIe connectors and it has a TDP of 250W.

According to Inno3D the card is capable of mining Ethereum with a hash rate of 47 MH/s which does beat both the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti and GTX Titan Xp. No word yet on pricing.
