Help me decide guys...

2x GTX 1060 3gb $388 ($194 each) or
1x GTX 1070       $389

my budget is $390. only

which is the best investment for mining?

Thanks

whats you electricity cost?? 2x1060 faster more power..
                                      1x1070 slower more efficient 

hmmmm.  Undecided taking out the electricity cost... so 2x1060 is more likely to generate more cryptocurrency? expecially ZCash?

Hi,

Thanks to all for a super thread.

I have this configuration:

0.3.0b

2x 1080 GTX @ 470-480sol/s on 132w per gtx ( Power limit 55%, +60 core clock + 420 mem) Gigabyte extreme gaming
1x 1050ti @ 140sol on 52w- 72%, Power +200, mem +220

3x 1060 GTX 6GB Gigabyte extreme gaming - @ 270-280sol/s on 92w - power 52%, core clock +150, mem +300
3x 1070 Gainward @ 365-375sol/s on 107w - power 72%, core +200, mem +300

instead of +300 mem on the 1070 try -500mhz or even -1200mhz if it will handle it (mine does) gives more power to the core which will bring your hashrate up for the same power usage... my setting for 1070 atm is

G1 Gaming: 1070  samsung mem :       power -40 % / core (default) / mem -1200mhz / temp 91 /   =400sol's on 90wats......

What software are you using to achieve mem -1200mhz? I'm Using afterburner and the slider stops at -500.

I have a G1 gaming and it's currently at power limit 60%, core +100 mem -500 and it's doing around 375-380sol/s.

I know I can crank it up to 450-470 sol but that extra 100 sol uses approximately double the power (I think?) so doesn't seem worth it.

I would like to try even lower mem. Is there a setting somewhere in afterburner to allow lower clocks or are you using another method or different software?

thanks for that.....

but I was just messing around with afterburner, and plugging in estimates (based on max TDP of 150 watts) into whattomine.com, and I think it makes more sense watching hashrate changes, etc - if I set the power limit to 75% (100 watts I guess?) - then if I put mem up to +600, and core at +80, I can get 425-430sol/s.

Why has everyone decided that dropping mem is a good idea? Is the TDP number for the whole card or just the GPU chip and doesn't include the power consumption of the memory? If that TDP is for the whole card what is the point of choking the memory and losing all that hash-rate?

No this is not how it works, each card has different TDP slider settings and each algo takes different amount of watt. You cannot estimate watt like that. For some cards 55= TDP is the same as 70% TDP for other just based on the TDP curve. Also lowering mem for zcash does not make sense since it uses quite a lot of memory. It makes sense for example for pascal, lbry etc. that do not use the memory controller at all.

yeah it's better, you can get 280 with one toal 560 sol vs 450 sol for a 1070

Totally agree, but today you have to look at others algos like lbry, skein, and such to make an opinion because Zcash is diving

I dont make nearly close on other algos, of what I make with zec.
(1070), it's doing 410-440 sol/s and sipping the max amount of juice, even though I limited its power to 84%,
temp is 75c, mem clock +250, gpu clock + 200.

yeah it's better, you can get 280 with one toal 560 sol vs 450 sol for a 1070

Right but... do you have any expansion plan?

I f you do not plan to expand than go with 2x 1060
If you plan to expand and add more cards then you will thank yourself by going with efficiency. 6x 1070 for example.
But all this might will change when NVidia release a new card. Than 1080 will drop in price and will be the card of choice.
Well my choice that is.

It's not funny as you obviously don't get the point of sticking to a topic and not spamming a thread with unrelated chat convo.
But I see you belong to the category troll.

I've been using AMD rigs for a while, and I thought I'd try my hand with some CUDA boards.

I have a rig with Windows 10x64, 378.66 drivers, and three Geforce 1080 boards. For some reasons, Windows keeps shutting down one of the boards. If I click on it and have it find the drivers, it install older drivers. All three boards do work then however with the older driver.

When I run EWBF, the hashrate starts out around what I would expect and then quickly decays.

My questions:
1. Are the 378.66 drivers required? If so, any clues on why one of the boards doesn't like it?
2. Why the decaying hashrate? I've not mucked with any settings yet. These are stock.
3. Are the hash rates from Linux comparable to Windows? I'm much more comfortable with Unix.

NOTE: I do have the BIOS set to integrated graphics chip. This I've found makes managing things much easier. The motherboard is a MSI Z97.

2. Why the decaying hashrate? I've not mucked with any settings yet. These are stock.
3. Are the hash rates from Linux comparable to Windows? I'm much more comfortable with Unix.

NOTE: I do have the BIOS set to integrated graphics chip. This I've found makes managing things much easier. The motherboard is a MSI Z97.
I would bet that if you switch the card with another that would indicate the culprit is the slot it is in.
I think that it indicates a conflict with the integrated graphic.
Tried Disabling it ?

The problem turned out to be a bad USB cable. I went ahead and installed Ubuntu 16.04 server as I was tired of playing with device manager.

All three cards are now chugging along at ~470 sols/s.

Anyway know how to tweak the cards under linux ala MSI Afterburner?

My questions:
1. Are the 378.66 drivers required? If so, any clues on why one of the boards doesn't like it?
2. Why the decaying hashrate? I've not mucked with any settings yet. These are stock.
3. Are the hash rates from Linux comparable to Windows? I'm much more comfortable with Unix.

NOTE: I do have the BIOS set to integrated graphics chip. This I've found makes managing things much easier. The motherboard is a MSI Z97.

Hi, no no need, i am using 367.44 (lubuntu 14.04 x64) and works perfectly on 1070, 1060 and 970, i don't have a 1080 but if 1070 works , 1080 should too, i upgraded one of the rigs to 378 just to see what changes ,and nothing does, stable as a rock, never 1 rig freezes, unloads, or reboot, 100% stable since the last mod about 7 months ago.

hashrate decay?, you mean profitability?, well price went down, difficulty went up, so ... we are fucked! Grin Grin

if you don't overclock then yes, hashrates at the same target power limit, are similar.

i don't recommend you use the onboard GPU, better disable it and use one of the GPUs, today gpus are powerful enough to handle graphical linux desktop and mine at 100% load without any trouble  Grin

Go ahead and install the last driver from Nvidia. I'm using ver. 375.26, but there is currently 1 new release 375.39 and a beta driver 378.09 available (haven't tested them out yet)

I don't think there is much to gain with the driver versions, most important is to find a working and stable one for your system.

2nd:

Go ahead and enable OC with:

sudo nvidia-xconfig -a --cool-bits=28 --allow-empty-initial-configuration

after a reboot you gain access to OC and fan control in X conf

Hope that helped you a little Smiley

how you can enable OC, lets say for 3, or 4 cards from terminal?
