One company buys $ 30 million worth of Nvidia CMP mining graphics cards

Published

on

Younger Nvidia CMP video cards for mining are already available to customers, but they are mainly wholesale, so there is little information on the demand for such devices.

Today it became known that the company Hut 8 Mining has purchased such accelerators from Nvidia in the amount of $ 30 million. It is not known how many cards it is, and it will not be possible to count, since the purchased goods will be delivered only in May, which means that these may be older CMP models.

But the company says the new cards will increase the aggregate speed of its farms by 1600 GH. Hut 8 notes that it will use these accelerators to mine alternative blockchain networks and expand its mining business while maintaining the benefits of bitcoin payments.

The top discrete Intel Arc graphics card will cost about $ 800, the cost of the model is simpler – about $ 650

The premiere of discrete Intel Arc graphics cards based on the Xe-HPG architecture is expected in the first quarter of next year. There are no comprehensive official details yet, but the company has already given a good price guideline by publishing the conditions of a certain competition, in which two models of Intel Arc 3D cards – Premium and Performance – are the prizes.

A total of 100 prizes will be awarded with Premium graphics cards equivalent to $ 900 each and 200 prizes with Performance graphics cards worth $ 700 each. The price is for a set, which, in addition to the video card itself, includes a subscription to the Xbox Game Pass service for three or six months, as well as branded merchandise.

Subtracting the subscription and merchandise costs from the prize, the Arc Premium 3D card will cost around $ 825 and the Performance 3D card around $ 650. A lot, considering that we are talking, in fact, about the cost price. Given the current deficit, the price can be safely multiplied by one and a half, if we talk about retail. And it turns out that on the store shelf there will not be much difference in price between the same Arc Premium, GeForce RTX 3070 (Ti) and Radeon RX 6700 XT – it is with these models from Nvidia and AMD that the novelty will compete. So what will make users buy an Intel device instead of Nvidia or AMD at roughly the same cost and performance? While this is a big question.

The new Intel processors are likely to be more expensive than their predecessors. There are already prices for two new models in the US

It looks like the new Intel processors will significantly raise the price bar. A large American network MicroCenter has already added a couple of new Alder Lake generation products to its range.

The Core i7-12700K is priced at $ 470, while the top-end Core i9-12900K will cost $ 670. For comparison, the Core i9-11900K has a MSRP of $ 550, and Intel’s flagship model has always cost about the same for many years.

Of course, there hasn’t been an official announcement yet, so we don’t know the recommended prices. But today we have already seen an example from Germany, where the price was also above $ 600.

At the same time, it is hardly worth blaming Intel for such a pricing policy. First, the new CPUs will be much more efficient than their predecessors. And secondly, the same Ryzen 5000 is also not cheap, and it is not yet clear if the Ryzen 9 5950X will be able to withstand in comparison with the new flagship of Intel.
