AMD Is Developing Graphics Card For Mining ETH

Following its main competitor, Nvidia, AMD may release a dedicated graphics card for mining ETH. To do this, the manufacturer will make changes to the Navi 12 video card.

According to the PC Gamer publication, the Navi 12 graphics card, which was introduced by AMD exclusively for Apple’s MacBook Pro, can be repurposed for ETH mining. The new version of the card will not have video outputs, it will not be able to be used for games.


AMD has not yet made an official statement about the release of a specialized card for mining. However, based on the published information about the AMDGPU core driver update, PC Gamer suggests that the new features of the Navi 12 graphics card make it an ideal candidate for ETH mining.

Back in January, it was reported that Nvidia is considering the possibility of resuming the production of video cards specialized for mining cryptocurrencies, if there is a demand for them. At the same time, Nvidia decided to deal with the shortage of video cards that are bought by miners to develop chips for mining.

Despite the growing profitability of ETH mining, Jon Peddie Research recently warned against investing in high-performance graphics cards for ETH mining. The firm’s analysts said that these expensive graphics cards will become useless once Ethereum switches to consensus proof of stake (PoS):

Ethereum, the most profitable coin for mining on video cards, will very soon switch to version 2.0, which will make video cards useless. It would be very stupid to invest in high-performance, energy-intensive video cards for mining ETH.

Recall that the first phase of Ethereum 2.0, the Beacon Chain was launched on December 1, 2020. The capabilities of Ethereum 2.0 will expand as the next phases are deployed.
