Nvidia Reportedly Transforming A100 Into a Mining GPU, With a 210 MH/s Hash Rate


Nvidia’s A100 accelerator, which is based on the GA100 silicon, might not be hitting the sales numbers the company hoped for–or perhaps the company just thinks there’s room for bigger sales in a different market. Hardware leaker kopite7kimi, who has a solid track record with Ampere leaks, broke the news that Nvidia is allegedly turning the A100 into a cryptocurrency powerhouse.

Obviously, the Ampere graphics card will launch under Nvidia’s Cryptocurrency Mining Processor (CMP) series that’s purposely built for professional mining, so you won’t have to worry about Nvidia’s anti-mining hash rate tomfoolery. Although kopite7kimi didn’t share performance numbers, he claimed that it’ll be “a mining monster,” and we don’t doubt his assertion, considering the A100’s impressive specifications.
