It could appear that AMD has been quietly aiming to get a share of the mining pie. The chipmaker is prepping two mining GPUs primarily based on the RDNA 2 structure which is a bit shocking (and upsetting) because the Radeon RX 6000 playing cards are much more scarce than NVIDIA’s RTX 30 sequence components. Information obtained by ElChapuzas signifies that each the SKUs are being manufactured by Sapphire, certainly one of AMD’s largest and closest board companions. The 2 playing cards are named the next:
Sapphire GPRO X080
The Sapphire GPRO X080 is predicated on the Navi 22 die. That includes 2,304 stream processors at an working clock of two.1GHz and 10GB of GDDR6 reminiscence (at 16Gbps), it’s basically the identical die because the one utilized by the Radeon RX 6700 XT, 6700, and 6700M. The Navi 22 die is paired with a 160-bit bus, a dual-fan cooling resolution, an 8-pin connector, and a TGP of 165W.
This GPU is rated with an Ethereum hash fee of 38.05 MH/s, with 41.6 MH/s at 96W doable with some tuning and tweaking. In response to the supply, this explicit SKU shall be priced at 750 Euros.
Sapphire GPRO X060
The Sapphire GPRO X060 is predicated on the Navi 23 XL GPU. That includes 1,792 stream processors operating at an working clock of two.4GHz, it pairs 8GB of GDDR6 reminiscence with a 192-bit bus. This is identical die because the one utilized by the Radeon RX 6600 XT, 6600, and 6600M.
The X060 has a rated Ethereum hash fee of 27.8 MH at 100W TGP, with 29.4 MH/s at 60W doable with some tuning. It’s priced at 550 Euros, a good bit larger than the RX 6600 which is technically the identical product. Because of this these mining merchandise include fats revenue margins for each AMD and Sapphire. The dearth of a Navi 21-based lineup signifies simply how low the manufacturing and provide of the higher-end Navi 2x GPUs actually is. We’ve seen the provision of the RX 6900 XT enhance in current months, however it’s nonetheless removed from very best, with worth tags of $1,500+ (50% over the MSRP).
