The demand for video cards from cryptocurrency miners is so great that it is difficult for 3D card manufacturers to ignore it. As a result, Nvidia has a line of Crypto Mining Processor (CMP) HX models, and AMD will soon have something similar.

According to the source, in the new AMD drivers for Linux there is a mention of a new model – NV12 without support for VCN (Video Core Next) software functions. This video card will be built on GPU Navi 12 on the RDNA architecture, and as a custom solution, it makes no sense. But for miners it will do quite well.

Nvidia CMP HX 3D cards are rumored to use GPUs that have not passed quality tests for use in the GeForce lineup. Of course, AMD also has a certain percentage of rejected GPUs, which, nevertheless, are quite suitable for mining tasks. And it may very well be that the new video card will use just such Navi 12 GPUs.

When the new product will be released and how much it will cost, it is not reported, but the demand is huge, and the shortage of video cards is promised until early next year, so AMD has enough time to release specialized models for cryptocurrency miners.
