With Hynix memory, that's likely your max ability for Ethereum.
But for Equihash, it seems low. Try starting from stock 0 settings and start by upping the core clock. See if you can get it past +100 MHz without crashing while your mem is at 0

Zotac GTX 1060 6GB AMP (Micron) 323Sols/s
using DSTM 0.5.3
Power Limit 85%
Temp Limit 75C (Average 65C on Open Air)
Core Clock +175
Mem Clock +650

Zotac GTX 1060 3GB AMP (Hynix) 298Sols/s
using DSTM 0.5.3
Power Limit 80%
Temp Limit 75C (Average 65C on Open Air)
Core Clock +144
Mem Clock +529



I was under the impression that memory isn't as critical on the Equihash algorithm (vs Ethash), but I see your settings are different for each - including your power limit.
Can you tell me how much power the Hynix card is using compared to the faster-hashing-Micron card?

Are they running about the same Sol/Watt?

That was the highest setting for hynix card for me.
When i try increased the clock, the miner not stable.
Atm, i decrease the power limit to 65% to all card (3 GTX1060 6GB and 1 GTX1060 3GB), the Sols/w on 6GB is 3.75 Sols/w, and 3GB on 3.55 Sols/w.
All of them on 75-78 watt average.
Note : The 3 GTX1060 6GB are Micron chip and GTX1060 3GB is Hynix.

That article is irrelevant. You cannot know the exact type of memory installed on the GPU, but empirically.
I have 2 models from that list:
a Palit Dual GTX 1060 3GB, equipped with Samsung memory - about 20 MH/s stock, 23.8-24.6 MH/s overclocked (22.5 MH/s in the article)
a Gigabyte Windforce GTX 1060 3GB, equipped with Hynix memory - 15.5 MH/s stock, struggles to get to 19.1 MH/s overclocked (25.2 MH/s in the article, assuming it's Samsung memory - a great result)

My 2 satoshis about hashrate:

Lyra2REv2 - 26 MH/s
Palit Dual GTX 1060 3GB AMP (Hynix)
Power Limit 100%
Core Clock 2050 MHz
Mem Clock 3007 MHz

Hshare - 7.9 MH/s
Palit Dual GTX 1060 3GB AMP (Hynix)
Power Limit 100%
Core Clock 1987 MHz
Mem Clock 3499 MHz

Ive been debating on getting a 1060 to compare rates to my 1070s I want to add some more cards and comparing the 1070s to my rx470/570s is crazy I'm always having a driver issue or something on my amd's but my 1070s have been running without any problems but at 400-450 a card it adds up quickly that's why I'm looking at 1060 and I believe I'll be getting a better deal going with the 1060 so my question is what cards are the best to go with thanks

if you have cheap EC then go with 1060 easy choice  if you want Max Hash per KWh  then go with 1070

Or he could get even higher hash per KWh with GTX 1080 or 1080 Ti. That is if he's not interested in mining Dagger and Neoscrypt (which are too slow with gddr5x). I'm getting way better H/W ratios out of 1080s than out of 1060s and 1070s.

Thanks for the feedback!
You can click on the GPU name to see all the hashrate records, and yes, the Gigabyte Windforce hash record was achieved with Samsung memory.

There is now an option just to compare by price:
https://www.pyramidreviews.com/cryptocorner/mining-gpu-speed-and-price-comparison/ethereum-mining-speed-gpu-comparison-for-gtx1060-3gb/?compare=price

What would make the comparison chart more useful?
I'm also toying with the ability to compare based on a hashrate that you could enter, or change, across all the cards so that you could see what was the best option available right now.

Has anyone tried mining using the below cards?

1. ZOTAC GeForce® GTX 1060 AMP Core Edition, 3GB, GDDR5, 192 bit
2. Inno3D GeForce GTX 1060 Twin X2, 3GB, GDDR5, 192 bit
3. Palit GeForce GTX 1060 Dual 3GB GDDR5 192bit

I'm currently interested in building a rig and would like some opinions.

Thanks!

I.think you should stay away from 3Gb cards as DAG size is projected to increase mid 2018 rendering your 3Gb cards useless for mining, at least for etherium but you can still mine other coins though. It will be more practical and logical to invest on 4Gb and up GPUs as it will only be obsolete sometime in 2019. If you paln to buy now, 3Gb cards will only let you mine for approx 5-6 months which I think you haven't get the ROI for that card whereas 4GB gives you 2+ years. Just my two cents.

Tried the 1070 Ti.

1060 6 go remain my favorite.

The only card that could beat them, on the long term run, is the 1080 ti.

( My opinion )

I currently have Msi and pny 1070s and my Msi gaming x out performs the pny's so I just bought one Msi gaming 1060 to see what it can do before I buy more it seems that the Msi gaming cards are a little bit higher in price

As per my experience, Nvidia GPU always stood up with outstanding performance.

Hey Guys, need some help..

I have 3 cards from 3 different manufacturers running on one rig.

--> 1 x Gigabyte windforce 1060 6GB ( Micron memory)
--> 1 x PNY 1060 6gb ( Hynix)
--> 4 x Zotac amp 1060 6gb (Micron mem)


What would be the best settings on afterburner? I am mining using Nicehash(latest version)

Currently I have( for all cards)

Power limit = 70%
Temp limit = 70%
Core = 150
memory clock = 500

From what i have noticed each card has different settings depending on which brand of memory they are using. I am unable to find the sweet spot for the settings.


Please heeeeelppppp!!!!!

There's no such thing as a "sweet spot" regarding different memory types, and there's no way to tune memory other than the frequency (well, you could increase memory voltage with some Palit cards, but not with other brands). So you just overclock as usual — increase the clock until it crashes and then move back a bit. Samsung chips are the best overclockers so you could get more than +500 out of them. With Hynix +500 is probably as far as they go (although do try higher clocks of course). Not sure about Micron, seems to be between Samsung and Hynix in terms of OC capabilities.

People usually search for the "sweet spot" when they tune voltages/clocks — either through the powerlimit slider, or with the curves. Different people have different priorities: some go after the highest h/w (which usually means decreasing the voltage a lot), while others try to push their cards as far as they can by increasing the clocks (if electricity is cheap and they're not overheating — why not). And then there's all kinds of users in between these two extremes.

I have tried increasing the memory clock and the machine becomes unstable around 600. I am staying in India, ambient temps are high and electricity isnt cheap either.

Guess I will leave these settings for now.

I was just wondering if have GPUs from different brands could possibly make the rig unstable?

Don't increase the memory clocks for all 6 cards at once. Overclock them one at a time. Even better, move them one by one to another system and test them separately: pull one card out, test it in a different system while the other 5 are mining in the main rig, figure out the stable clocks, then put that one back and pull the other one from the main rig etc.

No, it has nothing to do with different brands. It's just when you overclock cards in a mining rig the whole system might crash even when just one card is unstable.
