Nvidia, in addition to Geforce gaming graphics cards, produces video cards for mining CMP on the same chips and RTX A2000, RTX A4000, etc. produces professional models with appointments. At the moment, the market situation is such that due to the stabilization of prices for games and pros have become much more common for use in cryptocurrency mining, previously their price did not attract miners to buy. Due to the lack of LHR restrictions on models, as well as on professional models of Nvidia video cards, a new development, a young professional model RTX A2000 has become a rather curious instance to buy for mining.
The technical characteristics of the new RTX A2000 model gave priority only to the Nvidia Geforce 3600 gaming model. With a large number of Cuda cores (3584 vs. 3328), it has twice as much GDDR6 memory (12 GB vs. 6 GB) and more memory bandwidth (360 Gbit/s vs. 288 Gbit/s). But since the RTX 3060 has a built-in LHR extraction limiter, this video card, with twice the energy consumption, gives the same result of the RTX A2000 when mining Ethereum.
Nvidia RTX A2000 video card hashrate:
Ethash: 40Mh/s 65W
KawPow: 15MH/s 70W
Octopus: 30Mh/s 70W
Autolykos: 103Mh/s 70W
If we compare the RTX A2000 processes in the mining industry, then this model does not imply stunning results, but it can compete with many other models in terms of energy consumption. Those who need to get a model with such parameters should pay attention to the RTX A2000, its stable performance, high-quality cooling system, even with processor overloads. The installation of the card is greatly facilitated by its type of connection, it requires power through the PCI Express connector. The price market for the RTX A2000 is currently comparable to the prices for the Geforce RTX3060, therefore, the purchase of professional equipment designed directly for mining will be more profitable than the purchase of analogues. The only thing is that at the moment the RTX A2000 model has a relatively small amount of memory (6GB), so the period of work with Ethereum is limited to April 2024, but despite this, this investment is repayable and profitable due to the possible transition of Ethereum to Pos.
