GTX960 into the upper end of the 160 Sol/s range, stays stable wtihout dropping below 160.

V nice to have it as a card I can keep running even if I want/need to utilise my primary card for gaming or whatever. _b

if the 1060 does 300 sol at 87 watt it's not better than a 1070 that can reach 400 sol at 100watt

if it was the 3GB version that i would say it is better because of the price but the 6gb is expensive

My 1070's does 365 Sol/s at 90W (no OC) so yes, you probably right about it, 1070 is still better  Grin

I don't have a 3GB version to test, but i will never buy one anyway, because in a year from now it would be very difficult to sell, because nobody will want a 3GB card anymore, even the GTX 970 G1 Gaming which is a fantastic gpu, is difficult to sell well nowadays because of the memory.

if i can get my hands on one i will do the tests and report.

this is my exact reason why i ignored the 3gb version, for resale value

also it's on the way the new pascal refresh, 2070 and 2080 model they are faster than current one but same price, another reason not to have a dead card that cannot be resold
If they release those two GPU's with GDDR5X it will suffer the same issues as the 1080, assuming they haven't figured out the latency issue.

the current hashrate of a 1080 is better than the 1070, there is no issue with zcash but with dagger for what i understood
GTX 1080      2560   20   530 sol/s   26.5
GTX 1070      1920   15   430 sol/s   28 2/3
GTX 1060      1280   10   300 sol/s   30
GTX 1060 3GB   1152    9   273 sol/s   30 1/3
I was thinking more of how it compares with per compute core performance.
and the largest jumps are between the GTX 1060 and 1070.  If I had numbers it would also be between the GTX 1060 3GB and GTX 1050 Ti even if I gave the GTX 1050 Ti the 10% increase it should be around 156 sol's and the GTX 1050 would be around 138



core clock should be considered it will be much higher

This is silly, there is no way they're going to release the 2XXX series before the 1080Ti, there are rumors of that already. That and they don't reuse the same chips for the next generation like AMD. 2XXX series will more then likely have HBM2 as well, not GDDR5x. Whoever made this really has no idea what they're talking about and no place making something like this.

I buy private Nvidia miners. Send information and/or inquiries to my PM box.

Woah thanks for the numbers mate ! Are you running @ 50% tdp ? Also from what i see, with the current 1060 3GB price (199€, 0.72€/sol) , it could be the best card for mining zcash i think, but i wonder if zcash were to die, if there would be any alternative since they do pretty poorly elsewhere maybe the good compromise would be the 1060 6GB (250€ 0.83€/sol) but for longevity, resale value, alternatives, the 1070 is still interesting... 420€ 0.97€/sol, cruel dilemma.

It's your cpu/ mobo setup
AM1 setup is only good for AMD and OpenCL
Cuda offloads the confirmations to the cpu and doesn't fully use the gpu like the OpenCL miners

Yes most of my rigs use the AM1M-S2H motherboard with AM1 5350 APU low power (25W TDP) quadocore, i use this because of the power efficiency, low cost, and compatibility, is by far the most stable mobo i have used for mining.

only for three GPUs obviously Smiley the rigs that has 5 GPU uses the H81 Pro BTC with G3250 intel but costs three times more,and uses twice the power, so yes you win in density but loose in simplicity and power efficiency, so in the end is the same.

So far the APU is doing fine with three GTX 1070, at around 70% load (zcash), 30% load (ethereum) GPU utilization is around 97% so, not bad for such a tiny processor Smiley

However you have a point, as new algos tend to use more the CPU than before, so, for newer miners i'm planning on using FM2+ APUs, i never use intel unless i have no choice.

Yes, it is very cruel,  The 1060 6GB get's very little more in other ago's and with dagger hash there isn't any or shouldn't be any.  I get about 23Mh ish with the 3GB and still has over a GB of room for dag growth.  The 1070 is your long term card at the moment.  I haven't tried 50% TDP, I'm using 80% TDP but this new version is way more stable as I could only do 85% before v0.1.0b

Yeah that's what i thought too, more expensive @start, but in the long term i think you're better going with 1070 but still a 1060 3GB rig sound interesting and could ROI fast Smiley but in this price range when you look @ versatility you're better to go with RX470/RX480 probably, even if the watt needed for a 1060 is really low, if you have expensive electricity like me, it could be very nice too, again what a dilemma lol. Oh 80% then your numbers are with stock clock ?

they are put back to P0 max state so for my 1911 core 4004 memory

The only problem with the RX470/ 480 is in order to get good numbers you have to mod the bios which voids the warranty otherwise it's as good or worse than the GTX 1060 3GB.  you can pretty much forget about anything but ETH/ XMR/ or ZEC with the RX 480 it's TDP ranges from 150 to 225W and the RX 470 is better prom a power and price point of view.  The RX 470 is competitive with the GTX 1060 3GB on ETH and beats it hands down in XMR while ZEC goes to GTX 1060 3GB, power wise GTX 1060 wins, Price wise RX 470 wins although this gap is closing

Good summary, and in my area electric is at a higher price so it's NVidia for me. Only time the electric isn't a downside is in the winter for room heating purposes.

Hi, I'm having a weird issue with my memory clock while using this miner.
I have a GTX 970 G1 gaming and when i use this miner, the memory clock gets stuck to 3004Mhz in Afterburner (P2 State) and stays there, but when i quit the miner it goes up to 3500Mhz where its supposed to be.

Overclocking does nothing, i can't even underclock when running the miner(i don't use other miners). Also while gaming or running benchmarks it works fine and goes to P0 state instantly like its supposed to.
What could be causing this? Tomorrow i'll try and install Windows 10 fresh onto a partition to see if that helps.

Can anyone help me?

try the NVidia smi application
It should allow  you to adjust the power limit and clocks to get it back to P0 state
be sure and run command prompt as admin

Hi, I'm having a weird issue with my memory clock while using this miner.
I have a GTX 970 G1 gaming and when i use this miner, the memory clock gets stuck to 3004Mhz in Afterburner (P2 State) and stays there, but when i quit the miner it goes up to 3500Mhz where its supposed to be.

Overclocking does nothing, i can't even underclock when running the miner(i don't use other miners). Also while gaming or running benchmarks it works fine and goes to P0 state instantly like its supposed to.
What could be causing this? Tomorrow i'll try and install Windows 10 fresh onto a partition to see if that helps.

Can anyone help me?
try the NVidia smi application
It should allow  you to adjust the power limit and clocks to get it back to P0 state
be sure and run command prompt as admin

I mine in P2 state and the performance it's pretty good, is it really necessary to be in P0 state for mining?, i don't think so.

The only problem with the RX470/ 480 is in order to get good numbers you have to mod the bios which voids the warranty otherwise it's as good or worse than the GTX 1060 3GB.  you can pretty much forget about anything but ETH/ XMR/ or ZEC with the RX 480 it's TDP ranges from 150 to 225W and the RX 470 is better prom a power and price point of view.  The RX 470 is competitive with the GTX 1060 3GB on ETH and beats it hands down in XMR while ZEC goes to GTX 1060 3GB, power wise GTX 1060 wins, Price wise RX 470 wins although this gap is closing

Thanks a bunch for the infos.

Yeah that was kinda my thinking because of my high electricity price Sad (nearly 15c/kw here ;_; ) So for you for the cheaper rig you would go with 3GB 1060 because the added price on the 6GB isn't worth it ? Im kinda looking at fact that making 2x6 1060 card rig cost a bit more than making 1x 1070 rig and it would roi fast... Here a 470 4GB is the same price more or less 3% than a 1060 3GB so...

Also XMR/monero upgrade for nvidia is coming for sure, sp_ has a private miner that does 550sol on 1060 and 900 on 1070 so it'll be around sometime soon, if not by him, by someone else, nvidia is getting traction Smiley

Last do you have a brand/version to recommend for 1060 3GB ?

Zotec Mini, ZT-P10610A-10L, they are the only ones that I have used and are $199 on Newegg at the moment.  Newegg has some others that are less than that and a couple that are $195 and $185 after rebate.  Zotec I can confirm on that model has Samsung memory models or at least mine do and they were bought about two months apart.  Eth mining I can get stable at 9600Mhz mem clock gpu core is stable @ 2025 at stock PL reducing only hurts dual mining and if just ETH  you can leave the core alone.

Nice thx for the infos !

Here thoses are about 223€ (i would love to have those newegg prices lol), EVGA models are 215€ for normal, and 229€ for the SC. Dunno about EVGA memory brand on thoses ones, gonna look for infos.

edit : ok evga 6GB found it's samsung memory, still looking for the 3GB but probably the same.

EVGA GTX 950 has Samsung memory, so if they are willing to put it on that card I would be surprised if they didn't use it on the GTX 1060 3GB.  You might look into a shipping forwarder if you want to buy from newegg.  The rebates would be useless though as  you have to live in the US, heck at those prices the 6GB looks more compelling for only another $22 for non-SC and $7 for SC versus the 6GB non-SC
if the price gap was that small here I would be getting the 6GB but only for the extra compute core I could care less about the extra memory

MSI GTX 1070 Gaming 8GB

440 H/s
+550 mem
+150 core
65% TDP

6 cards drawing 1000W total from the wall, including rest of system.  Roughly 150W per card.  Haven't done much tuning yet, pretty sure I can get the power down and hash rate up a bit.

Ah the price is as follow, i wasn't accurate enough, sorry

Zotec Mini GTX 1060 3GB : 223€
EVGA GTX 1060 3GB: 215€
EVGA GTX 1060 SC 3GB: 229€


Zotec Mini GTX 1060 6GB : 280€
EVGA GTX 1060 6GB: 285€
EVGA GTX 1060 SC 6GB: 290€

so according to what you were saying, the 3GB is the most interesting because the 6GB is overall 25% more expensive for like 10% more hash something like that ?
