Images and performance results have been released on the AMD BC-160, a graphics card dedicated exclusively for mining.
AMD BC-160 for cryptocurrency mining, up to 72 MH / s in ETH
Graphics card BC-160 It is from the signature of XFX and you are using a chip Navi 12, a chip that gives life to the ‘professional’ Radeon Pro 5600M graphics card, which is the one used by Mac computers.
Apparently, AMD wants to use these GPUs to launch them exclusively to mine cryptocurrencies, an increasingly prolific segment where manufacturers such as Nvidia and AMD are taking advantage of to get a slice.
The GPU Navi has inside some 2.560 stream processors with two memory modules HBM2, operating at a speed of 1,54 Gbps.
The images that we can see were published by the people of Videocardz, which show a graph with 8GB of memory HBM2 that works to 4 Gbps, 36 compute units and a 2048 bit memory bus. These specifications are somewhat strange due to the memory speed, which would not be available until the arrival of the HBM3 or HBM2e modules, so this data could be wrong.
The AMD BC-160 is seen in full action mining Ethereum, with a throughput of 72 MH / s.
Title BC-160 it also has some curious things. When broken down, it refers to Blockchain Compute (BC) performance numbers and ETH hash rate (16). Also, there are spelling errors in the information, such as “passive” is spelled “passiv” in the material that was provided.

The XFX graphics card is powered by two 8-pin connectors, for a 150 W TGP.
With the performance of 72 MH / s, it would be 25% more efficient than the previous Radeon RX 5700 XT, which uses the company’s Navi 10 chip.
So far, this is what we know about the new graphics card for mining from AMD. We will keep you up to date with all the news.
