Nvidia recently introduced the CMP GPUs—short for Cryptocurrency Mining Processor—in an effort to cut the cost of mining cryptocurrency using gaming-oriented graphics cards.
The CMP 30hx, 40hx, 50hx, 90hx, & 170hx hashratesGPUs will be available in the first quarter of 2021, starting with the Nvidia CMP 30HX and 40HX. Four are planned, according to Nvidia's specification sheet, with the more powerful 50HX and 90HX variants scheduled for release in Q2 of 2021.
These CMP graphics cards are said to be more efficient at Ethereum mining than the typical consumer graphics card—that is, assuming you can find anything recent with these hash-rates.
Additionally, these models do not correspond to Nvidia's standard SKUs, implying the employment of binned-out chips from the Ampere and possibly even Turing families. That is, those who did not make the cut.

NVIDIA CMP HX90 is a headless mining GPU, according to NiceHash. Cryptocurrency Mining Processor is an acronym for Cryptocurrency Mining Processor. HX90 performs similarly to RTX 3080 in terms of graphics processing power, bus width, and VRAM. However, it differs from its gaming cousin primarily in terms of core count, TMUS, and a few other specifications that are not required for mining.
The HX90 is currently priced around $2000, which is quite expensive for a headless GPU. Especially now that mining software is beginning to crack the RTX 3000 series cards' Hash Rate Limiter.

Conclusion

The stock hashrate results from benchmarking the HX90 in NiceHash Miner used the default parameters. It appears as though the GPU is already (at least somewhat) optimized for the DaggerHashimoto algorithm at 90 MH/s. The power consumption was approximately 250W.
Following the initial experiments with NiceHash Miner, they launched QuickMiner and OCTune, which proved to be the most effective overclocking software. At +900 MHz, they have simply discovered the maximum stable memory clock. After that, they ran the autotune, which determined the optimal core clock limit to be 1740 MHz (absolute value) for performance and 1380 MHz (absolute value) for efficiency within ten minutes of tuning. Interestingly, they were unable to significantly reduce the power draw. Only down to a maximum of 220W.
