Could be both, some people I know started with 1-3 GH within the last month and planning to add more. I stopped at 860 MH/s to wait for the 480s, I have 18 coming from Newegg tomorrow and 12 from B&H but don't know when.

At least GPUs have a life after mining. What does one do with the S3 one has in one's basement?

LOL that's exactly where my S3s are sitting.  In the storage area of my basement collecting dust.

Very true though even if mining eth becomes unprofitable there is still resale value to the video cards or perhaps another coin of the day may come along.

You're lucky.  I was just checking their inventory and there was a little message when I looked at my shopping cart on Newegg that says:

NOTE Orders received from 10:00 a.m. Wednesday, 6/29/16 to midnight Thursday, 6/30/16 won’t be shipped until Friday, 7/1/2016 as we conduct our biannual inventory.

some critic says that rx 480 consumes more power than amd claims and the pcie connections consumes more power than the standards.

https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/4qfwd4/rx480_fails_pcie_specification/

better test a few before buying in bulk.

Sapphire is selling it for 307$ if you want, in my local Amazon version Cheesy ! That's true that they're pushing it too far. I might finally order some older cards, or maybe even a 1070.

I got my Sapphire 480 this morning.

After attempting to get the 480 to work on Win 8.1 -- I am still not able to get to test it because the Crimson 16.6.2 refuse to work on Window 8.1....  Huh

I don't know what is the reason Win 8.1 was omitted in the download page. There are links for W7 and W10, and Linux.

the windows 7 drivers should work on 8.1
if it complains put them in windows 7 compatibility mode.

No can do - got an error "OS not supported"

I will downgrade to Win7 but I dont know if 6xGPU hack will work on Win7.

I want to get this 480 into a 6 GPU config under 1000w and under 5amps.

Any one knows why W8.1 was omitted in the RX480 supported drivers?

i guess for people with very cheap energy AND cool ambient, maybe not, but not everyone is sitting on $0.05 electricity in iceland, so it may be worth it

Refurb R9 290 are $190 at newegg.

If the power cost is cheap enough then the refurbs are a better value as you pay $60 less and that will buy you quite a bit of time mining.  For me I have kind of a average power price (.12 kw) and it would take at least 6 months mining for the 480 to save that $60.


@ 27 MH we are looking at something like this

290 = 220-250 watts

390 = 170 watts

480 = 155 watts

The big kicker is you could be mining on 390's and hit roi or be close to it already and only consume about 15 watts more.  The 480 is kind of a let down at this point as we were hoping to see 100 watts @ 25 MH.

you have 100w with 27mh it's called 1070 or 23.5 with 80w it's called nano, yes they are more expensive, but for expensive electricity they are the best
