MSI might launch a GPU mining-specific graphics cards

According to the latest MSI’s entry to the Eurasian Economic Commission regulatory office, MSI might be preparing custom graphics cards designed specifically for mining. 

The GeForce RTX 3060 Ti MINER series have appeared in the EEC listing. The product name clearly suggests that the graphics cards would be used for cryptocurrency mining. This isn’t the first time we are seeing mining-specific cards being launched by board partners though.

Board partners often sell special series with subpar cooling solutions in bulk, without packing for each item. This reduces the production cost for the cards that will not require fan stopping technology or RGB on their shrouds. The warranty is also limited, and more importantly, those cards are often sold at a higher price compared to gaming models. The lastest EEC entry revealed that MSI will introduce two RTX 3060 Ti cards (based on GA104 GPU) under the MINER series:

This isn’t the first time MSI would be launching graphics cards dedicated to mining. During the previous 2017 Bitcoin price surge, many AIBs introduced Pascal cards known as P106-100 or P104-100, which were indeed not branded as GeForce, but still offered the same GPUs as gaming counterparts.
