Glad I managed to get a 6GB samsung earlier this year if they aren't producing more  Grin

Just finished a quick test yesterday with few rigs: 8x MSI P106-100 6Gb. I like the design, and price is reasonable with ~215$/GPU.

Stock setting: 21.5 Mh/s
At OC setting: Power limit 75%, Core: +0, Mem: +700, the hashrate of each GPU is very stable at about 25.5Mh/s.


I cant find these anywhere, who sells them

I just wonder with what kind of memory you get these cards when they can reach +1000. My Samsung cards cannot exceed +700 when mining ETH. Hynix cards cannot go above +450, +500 is like winning a gold medal. Maybe I do something wrong.

I think it is the luck of the draw most of the times. But then again you want them to be stable rather than fast.

It's hard to buy more RX480 and RX580 now. So I purchase some P106-100 mining cards to test and really satisfy with the performances and I'm going to build a new mini farm with this card.
Basically each MSI P106-100 mining card costs around 251$ and average hashrate is about 25.1Mh/s.

The first quick test with 2 GPUs, test's duration: 16hrs: Power Limit: 65%, Core: +0, Mem: +950, average hashrate: 25.2Mh/s. 



The second test with 8GPUs, test's duration: 86hrs: Power Limit: 65%, Core: +46, Mem: +740, average hashrate: 25.05Mh/s.

I just bought Galax GTX 1060 6GB and indeed its memory using Hynix. I've tried overclock / underclock and maximum results are 300-327 Sol/s in Equihash. My settings are:
power limit 90
temp limit 75 (manual)
core clock +225
mem clock +575
fan 60 (manual)

power usage 105-110W (ewbf)
eficiency 2.8-3.1 Sol/W (ewbf)
temp 66-70

UPDATE:
efficiency >3 Sol/Watt, reduce power limit to 85


+225 on core?  That's pretty high.  What's the effective clocks while mining?  That's what matters though.

Afaik, equihash need core speed instead memory speed.
Update config:
Power 80, temp 70, core +200, mem +400, fan 70. Got 295-310 Sol/s with less than 100 Watt.

Equihash does need higher core speed but at 80% power limit you're already lowered the voltage applied to core.  So that +200 core bump isn't actually doing anything with realtime clocks.  Check the actual clocks while mining.  
p.s I get 300+ Sol/s with +75 core and +400 memory 85% power ~ 98w

where do i get actual clocks? gpuz?
here is my latest atempt with my galax gtx 1060 6gb hynix.

Shibob:

At the price you got them that's a much better deal than almost any card at this time. Though I think you just won the silicon lottery since most cards can't clock that high and mine with stability for a prolong duration. Still those are really good numbers.

Hi GordoLui, Thank you very much!
I'm not sure that I'm lucky or not, but most of the cards in this package (a group buy with 400 GPUs) achieve about the same performance. Hopefully we could run them with high stability, actually these tests just in more than 3 days, and we tend to reduce a bit OC, even though I think hashrate should be reduced not much.

Samsung memory usually clocks high enough.  Much better than anything else.
Where Micron usually starts to create "issues" around +550,  Hynix around +400,  Samsung can push highest.

Given the fact Windows Nvidia driver "adds/removes' 200mhz off the OC, the effective +OC rate should be (950-200) = 750 /2 = 375 which makes the video card memory operational speed at 2375 mhz.
default is 2000 mhz.

My Samsung ones are running fine for months at 2300 mhz.

@shibob: That are impressive figures. You are lucky to purchase these cards at such a price. I even as the manufacturer over here and they pointed me to the only vendor who sells them but it's totally overpriced.

I would get some without hesitation at a reasonable price. Well done!

That +950 is impressive!  I've managed +800 on my Asus Strx 6GB but never pushed it past that.  Core I can get to about +225 with no issues.

Hi preda, I'm just lazy on updating nvidia driver, and the SSD I used for testing is from another rig. There're few rigs I update to driver version 385.xx but the hashrate is mostly the same.
I heard that driver ver.373.06 is one of the best, but when using P106 mining card, I have to use later one.

Ok thanks... Because i have some hashrate drop idk the why
I would know if it's a driver problem or just mine

Yup gpu-z should do.  Now check with +100 to +150 on core and see if you attain similar clocks on 19xx range.

The 1060 I have is from 1741 so late 2017 - quite surprising that it has samsung memory. I have a 1070 with samsung memory and that one is from late 2016. Maybe someone found some old memory stocks in the factory Cheesy

That's lucky of you.

I just wonder with what kind of memory you get these cards when they can reach +1000. My Samsung cards cannot exceed +700 when mining ETH. Hynix cards cannot go above +450, +500 is like winning a gold medal. Maybe I do something wrong.

Actually Hynix can do +750 but they have pretty loose timings so it's not fruitful.  They don't go past 20.5 even at +750 MHz on memory.

Palit gtx 1060 3gb @ 1974 gpu /+600 mem and I'm getting ~17 MH/s DaggerHashimoto  ~832 MH/s Decred in dual mining.

What could be the reason for such low hashrate? Mining with NiceHash miner 2.1.0.2 beta.

Thanks for any help.

What memory do you have? I have a 1060 3gb with Hynix and Samsung, the Hynix card reaches 18Mh/s and Samsung 23.5 Mh/s on ETH alone. The memory plays a big role both cards have basically the same price but the Samsung one clearly is winning on nearly all the algorithms.

Before I dual mined ETH+DCR, but as I know Obelisk will release DCR and Sia Asic miner soon, so I'm still thinking to move to another coins: LBC and Pascal but have not considered yet.
