Title: 500 mh/s 🔔 Ethereum mining rig RX5700XT vs RX5700 vs RX570 !?

RX5700 series graphic cards has been out for few month now. But drivers for mining from AMD hasnít been the best. Recently most popular mining OS Simple-mining and hiveOS has added support for these graphic cards. It is not perfect but mining is doable on these cards now, and the results are impressive. Im not saying here GPU mining is now profitable, you still have to be mining fanatic like i am to build GPU mining rig with new hardware.

My setup for 324mh/s mining rig:

12gpu all in one mining rig case
5x RX5700
1xRX5700XT
hiveOS mining software

Over clocks used :

Core Clock 1340
Core Voltage 800
Memory clock 930-950

My setup for 500 mh/s mining rig :

12gpu all in one mining rig case
5x RX5700
1xRX5700XT
6xRX570  4gb MSI gaming
hiveOS mining software  https://hiveos.farm/install/
Over clocks used :

Core Clock 1340 (RX5700) 1100(RX570)
Core Voltage 800
Memory clock 930-950(RX5700) 2030(RX570)

There is nearly no difference in hash-rate RX5700 and RX5700XT . It is no point spending extra 20% on gpu to increase hashrate by less then 1%. So if you are mining Ethereum stick to RX5700

Thanks for sharing your experience with RX5700XT and RX5700 cards!
But your screenshots are too small.
I can't see anything  :(

Im sorry :)
You can go here i have also post where you can click on images https://mineshop.eu/2019/11/27/ethereum-mining-rig-rx5700xt-vs-rx5700/ (https://mineshop.eu/2019/11/27/ethereum-mining-rig-rx5700xt-vs-rx5700/)

I figured the days of people actually building Ethereum mining rigs with GPUs was over by now and that focus would be more on asic or fpga. I'm pretty surprised.

I think GPUs are still more accessible for the people.

The thing that I faced regarding FPGAs is that there are not many public bitstreams available for it. I even managed to find Xiling VCU1525 but the price made me not consider it. They wanted $3350 + shipping for it. Not to mention the import duty could have been so high.

I was never intrigued by ASICs. It increased centralization, newer models were sold after they were already mined by the companies who manufacture it, no sales support, less warranty span and they become paperweight just after few months or so.

So, In the end. I think, GPUs, CPUs are a much better investment for mining rather than the above two.

I wanted to build a 12 card rig with RX5700's but I'm worried about the future of the card because nobody knows for sure what's going to happen with ETH and ETC. (ProgPow and POS)

Yes FPGAs are very tricky. Specially if you cannot develop your own bittstream. There is very little software and if there is the dev fee is crazy, i remember last week buying 100usd worth bittstream  for CKB nervous which at the time was doing about 20usd a day, and still it has another 10% dev fee in it. Which is crazy high if you compare it to current gpu mining software  dev fees average 2%.

GPU seems to me always the best choice for mining. Yes the profit currently is just not there, but that could change very quickly. If it does you can build big farm in few days from GPU cause the hardware is easy accessible.

A good choice can be to get FPGA, ASIC and GPU. In such a way you will be well-protected from profit dump. But at the same time, your huge profit will be less than can be. And you ought to have a nice place without neighbors for this idea.
Everyone makes his own choice and all of them are true for some conditions.

How much you spend to build this 12 GPU mining rig to reach 500mh/s ethereum mining?

I would like to know if how much you buy RX5700 and if where did you buy it?
I just want to know the price if it's worth it to build a rig with rx5700?

How about the electricity how much daily Electricity cost for this rig 5xrx5700 and 1 rx5700xt?

If you build rig with only RX5700 you will get about 650 mh/s at 1900w
So you will need :
  • 12xRX5700 each about 300-330euro
  • and i used all in one case 680e - https://mineshop.eu/mining-container-minebox/minebox12-all-in-one-12gpu-mining-rig-case/ (https://mineshop.eu/mining-container-minebox/minebox12-all-in-one-12gpu-mining-rig-case/)

OMG... Too expensive to build a mining rig with this unless if you have free Electricity maybe you can reach your ROI in a year.

Did you try to calculate your profit daily?

Yes i know profit is not there in any of the GPU mining and ROI is to long, as i said in video you have to be GPU mining fanatic to build this.
But i like to experiment with hardware and dont want to miss good time when they come back when profitability returns.
