Gigabyte Releases Pascal Based P104-100 4GB Mining Card

Gigabyte has jumped on the mining cards hype train by releasing a Nvidia Pascal based card, the GV-NP104D5X-4G Mining Card.

The card itself is slightly different than a conventional graphics unit, in that it has no video outputs to speak off. The processing core is based on GP104 silicon, with 1920 CUDA cores (same as a GTX 1070) and 4GB of GDDR5X. This comes to specifications somewhere between a GTX 1070 and 1080. The cooler is a standard Windforce design, with 3 fans and a simple heatsink layout and requires a single 8 pin connector for power.

As stated before, the card has no video outputs and in order to further save costs, Gigabyte has equipped only a PCI E X4 wiring to it. Gigabyte will be backing up this graphics processor with a three-month warranty and come with a price tag that is expected to be much cheaper than standard GTX 1070/1080 graphics cards.
