New devices are designed to increase the profits of miners who prefer to mine cryptocurrency using video cards. Prices for equipment are not yet known.

Despite the drop in sales of video cards for mining, AMD still relies on the cryptoindustry. In October, representatives of the company published a report stating that sales of mining GPU falls.

At the same time, Nvidia, a leading manufacturer of video cards and chips, announced its decision to stop focusing on the cryptocurrency industry, citing the low profitability that this direction brings to it.

Sapphire Technology has announced plans to release a new Radeon RX 570 Nitro + video card, equipped with 16 GB of GDDR5 memory. As reported by TechPowerApp, it is designed for Grin cryptocurrency mining.

Grin is based on the MimbleWimble protocol and the Cuckoo Cycle PoW hashing algorithm, which can load up to 11 GB of video memory, which explains the non-standard characteristics of the new graphics card.

The video card is made in the traditional Nitro + design with a dual-fan cooler and uses sixteen GDDR5 memory chips.

The cost of the Radeon RX 570 Nitro + has not yet been named, but Sapphire promises that it will be sold at the price of "one third of the cost of competing cards at 16 GB."

Aday after the launch of the main cryptocurrency network, Grin is mined by at least 88,000 graphics processors. Grin hash rate is 285.6K graphs / s.
