Late final month, we noticed the primary pictures of an alleged Navi 21-based RDNA 2 cryptocurrency mining card. Though we could not decide what actual GPU was getting used, Navi 21-based Radeon RX playing cards have Ethereum hash charges starting from 61 MH/s for the Radeon RX 6800 to 65 MH/s for the Radeon RX 6900 XT.
Now, one other devoted RDNA 2 cryptomining card has appeared, and it is apparently based mostly on the Navi 22 GPU. Navi 22 is used within the Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card for these unfamiliar with AMD’s GPU nomenclature. In response to the knowledge supplied alongside the photographs, this card encompasses a passive, fanless cooling system and we spy an XFX brand above the PCIe 4.0 connector. For these holding scores, the Navi 21 mining card that we beforehand noticed was additionally XFX-branded.
The desktop Radeon RX 6700 XT playing cards include 2,560 stream processors, a 192-bit reminiscence interface, and 12GB of GDDR6. Nonetheless, Videocardz additionally obtained a CPU-Z screenshot of the cardboard that exhibits 2,304 stream processors, a 160-bit reminiscence interface, and 10GB of GDDR6 reminiscence for this Navi 21 mining card.
That leads us to imagine that XFX is extra carefully aligned with the Radeon RX 6700M, which options similar GPU specs. Or, as has been speculated, this is likely to be the [still unreleased] Radeon RX 6700. The XFX card options twin 8-pin energy connectors, identical to the previously-seen Navi 21 variant.
Alleged Ethereum mining efficiency was additionally supplied, with the XFX card delivering a hash fee of 39.06 MH/sec.
The looks of those two XFX mining playing cards — one Navi 21-based, one Navi 22-based — is kind of intriguing. Presumably, the place’s there’s smoke, there’s fireplace relating to the devoted mining marketplace for AMD and its board companions. In spite of everything, NVIDIA has discovered a solution to assault this market with is CMP HX household so it is smart that AMD would counter. Nonetheless, we’re nonetheless ready to see these XFX Ethereum mining playing cards make an look within the retail market.
