The new P106 mining cards are stripped down GeForce GTX 1060 graphics cards with their display connectors taken away, but without display connectors the mining-specific cards can't be used for gaming, ever.

As for specs, the P106-090 has 768 CUDA cores, which is way less than the 1280 CUDA cores on the proper GP106-400, the GPU that powers the GTX 1060. Anyone that mines knows CUDA cores don't do much for performance, it all comes down to memory bandwidth and speeds.

Inno3D's upcoming P106-090-based mining cards rock 3GB of GDDR5 @ 8Gbps on a 192-bit memory bus which is damn impressive, cryptocurrency miners like myself will be smiling from ear-to-ear. All of this for just 75W, compared to 120W on the GTX 1060.

This effectively kills AMD in the mining market, with a 75W card that blows the RX 400/500 series cards away in power efficiency. Vega... don't even get me started on power efficiency.
