MSI Launches Its Own Cryptocurrency Mining CMP

MSI has quietly added its first CMP-series board for cryptocurrency mining to its lineup. The Cryptocurrency Mining Processor (CMP) card looks exactly like the company’s mid-range GeForce GTX 1660/1660 Super graphics boards, but lacks display outputs and cannot be used to render images or video.
