NVIDIA’s GPUs specially designed for cryptocurrency mining has unveiled several important pieces of information about Pascal architecture based on GP106 and GP104 .
NVIDIA has developed two GPUs dedicated to cryptocurrency mining. Both have been designed with the Pascal GPU architecture, but with better efficiency in mining compared to existing models. The GPUs include a GP104-100 or GP106-100 from AIB partner of NVIDIA.
->The GTX 1060 cards have a GP106-100 card with a price of about US $ 200.
->The GTX 1080 cards have a GP104-100 card with a price of about US $ 350.
With more than 60 MH /s announced for the GP104-100.
It is noted that all cards will be delivered with a warranty of only 90 days. Maps are expected to be released in the summer, around June-July.
It is reported that the P104-100 delivers a performance of 30% more per watt compared to the GTX 1060 3GB while the P106-100 delivers a performance of more than 10% per watt compared to a GeForce GTX 1060 3GB.
The cards will be without video output.
NVIDIA P104-100 “GTX 1080” with 8GB GDDR5X – price about US $ 350:
The P104-100 model uses the same design as the GeForce GTX 1080. However, it offers higher performance in cryptocurrency mining. The cards will be delivered with different “clock speeds”, the basic model must operate on a 1607 MHz basis, with a boost of 1733 MHz, the 10 Gbps GDDR5X go at full speed along the 256-bit bus.
Power will be provided by a single 8-pin connector that will deliver 180W of power.
It is stated that the NVIDIA P104-100 can go up to 60 MH / s with modified bios but this remains to be seen.

The P106-100 uses the same design as the GeForce GTX 1060. However, it offers higher performance in mining crypto-currencies. The cards will be delivered with different “clock speeds”, the base model must operate on a base of 1506 MHz, with a boost of 1708 MHz, the 8 Gbps GDDR5X go at full speed along a 192-bit bus.
Power will be supplied by a single 6-pin connector that will deliver 120W of power.
