A retailer has started selling the CMP 30HX, NVIDIA's least powerful crypto mining card. Inadvertently, the retailer has confirmed that the CMP 30HX is nothing more than a GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER with the display connections removed. However, the CMP 30HX costs US$815.40, about US$300 more than the GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER sells for online.

NVIDIA is yet to confirm many details about its CMP mining cards, including their prices. However, a CMP 30HX has gone on sale at Microless, a retailer based in the UAE. Initially, Microless sold the CMP 30HX for AED 2,656.50 (~US$723.35), before it delisted the card and started selling it for AED 2,992.50 (~US$814.84). Please note that these prices include VAT. However, Microless also sells the card in US dollars for US$815.40.

According to the listing, the CMP 30HX has 6 GB of GDDR6 VRAM that NVIDIA has clocked at 14 Gbps. Additionally, the card has a 336 GB/s memory bandwidth, a 192-bit memory interface and a 125 W TDP. Microless reports that the CMP 30HX has a 1,530 MHz GPU core clock too that can boost to 1,785 MHz when needed.

In short, the CMP 30HX is a GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER with no display connections. In fact, the CMP 30HX sold by Microless is the spitting image of the Palit GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER GP OC, but one that costs US$815.40 for a 26 MH/s Ethereum Hash Rate.

NVIDIA originally sold the GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER for US$229, but second-hand cards are currently selling between US$500 and US$600 on marketplaces like eBay. Hence, it would make more sense for miners to purchase overpriced and second-hand GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER cards than the CMP 30HX.
