NVIDIA is working on some new crypto-focused graphics cards, with a new GP104-100 and GP106-100 cards that will be offered by NVIDIA's AIB partners, with variations. Note: all of these cards do NOT come with display outputs, so they cannot be used as traditional graphics cards - hence the concentration on cryptomining.

GTX 1080 @ $350: 60MH/s mining

The new GP104-100 card will be a GeForce GTX 1080 for all intents and purposes with 8GB of GDDR5X, with higher efficiency and they're fine tuned for the crazy cryptocurrency phase we're going through. They will ship with different GPU clock speeds with the base model hitting 1607/1733MHz for base/boost, respectively, with 8GB of GDDR5X @ 10Gbps on a 256-bit memory bus.

The upcoming GP104-100 card will have the same single 8-pin PCIe connector and TDP @ 180W, with a price of just $350 - compared to the average price of $470 or so for a GTX 1080. The best bit? These GTX 1080 variants will push a huge 60MH/s, up from the 23MH/s or so that my GTX 1080 is pushing in Ethereum mining right now.

GTX 1060 @ $200

This is going to be a popular one with ASUS, MSI and Coloful all working on GTX 1060-based mining cards. We have 1506/1708MHz GPU clocks, 1280 CUDA cores, and 6GB of GDDR5 @ 8Gbps.

MSI has their P106-100 Miner and P104-100 Miner cards, with 8GB of GDDR5X on the GP104 variant. Colorful on the other hand, has a GTX 1060-100 planned as well, with 1506/1708MHz GPU clocks and the same 6GB of GDDR5 @ 8Gbps.

Expect some big things from these cryptomining graphics cards, we will have some huge content on these for the future!
