I just started gpu mining 3 weeks ago . Getting the right gpu is really headache.

I started with mining eth using the following ridge
1) 4 x rx470 will add two or three more gpu
2) 7 x gtx1070


I am thinking of switching the gtx1070 into scabs but I still unsure which miner to use.

Getting 440h/s at 1000mhz clock on a Fury (undervolted), only cost £200, pretty much the same price as a RX480 yet getting double the hashrate, at full pelt 1125 clock I can hit near 500h/s

I am getting about 2800 h/s or so on a 6 card rig with 1070's. They are the clear favorite as far as I am concerned.

Guys i just do not understand, why people are saying, that 1080 TI ist good for mining. Correct me if I  am wrong, but:

1080 TI costs about 800 EUR.
You get a used GTX 1070 from 360 to 400 EUR


1080 TI does 600 sols
we need also 1,5 x 1070 to have 600 sols, because 1 gtx 1070 produces about 400 sols

With this performance, the undeclocked 1080 ti consumes 160 Watt
for the same performance 1,5 1070 about 140 + 70 = 210 Watt

so the difference is 50 Watt an hour, that makes 1200 Watt a day, which is depending on the electricity costs (let's take 0,12 EUR for our example) about 14 cents a day,
which makes in month 5 EUR.

So the for the same performance the price difference is 800 - (400 +200) = 200 EUR
that is about 40 month... just to pay for the price difference...  !?!?


Hi thespycry,
 Here are some numbers to go through.

The price of 1080Ti founders edition is $699.99 & 1070 is $400

1080Ti out of the box does about 690h/s for the power draw of 250w
1070 out of the box does about 400h/s(I don't have one so used your number)

To get 690h/s you need 1.72 1070 GPUs

Now for power

1080 Ti                    = 250 * 24 = 6000w = 6kw
1070                        = 140 * 24 = 3360w = 3.36kw
1070 Adj for 690h/s =  240.8 * 24 = 5779.2 = 5.77kw

ZEC Production

1080 Ti    = 0.0571/day Approx(whattomine data)
1070       = 0.0348/day Approx(whattomine data)
1070 ADj = 0.0571/day Approx(whattomine data)

So in a day with ZEC @ $107/coin it is possible to make

1080 Ti = 6.1097- 0.84(power)      = 5.2697
1070    = 3.7236 - 0.4032(power) = 3.3204
1070 Adj = 6.1097 - 0.6924(power) = 5.4173

To get 1080Ti's level of earning(20 cent more) you will be spending $688 instead of $699.99 for 1080Ti a difference of $11.99

Now this is based on the assumption that 1070 will do 400h/s for 140w if not then I don't think 1070 is that efficient.

Hope this helps, If I made any mistake please let me know.

Regards,
BLife



I bought 4x Palit GeForce GTX 1070 1632Mhz PCI-E 3.0 8192Mb 8000Mhz for 491 USD

with -40% limit (100 watt GPU), 90 core, 670 memory im having  445 sol.

Is it good deal?

yes but the 480 consume less i bet you are consuming 150-200watt at least to have that speed, if you have low electricity cost can be ok, otherwise not i spend more but have better efficiency

480 is completely and entirely inferior for mining zcash. Just go with the 1070.

I almost exclusively use AMD Fury and AMD Pro Duo.  The Pro Duo will do 1000 sols and I can get them to do 920 sols at about 300 watts.  I have used very few Nvidia cards because of the limited coins that could be mined in the past and typically inferior speeds.

I did order the following items to test out.  They arrive tomorrow so I am looking forward to modding them.

5 - Zotac Mini 1070
5 - Zotac 1070
5 - ZOTAC 1080 Ti AMP
2 - Titan Xp

Edited to add:
The Titan Xp's arrive Monday I think




hey waiting for the test results for Zotac Mini 1070
cuz i want to buy one soon its cheapest 1070 version

I have three coming, will let you know what happens 
 
will be my first real foray into nvidia mining (besides my main gaming PC with a 1080Ti, which I get 670 sols at 3.25 sols/w)

Legacy signature from 2011: 
All rates with Phoenix 1.50 / PhatK
5850 - 400 MH/s  |  5850 - 355 MH/s | 5830 - 310 MH/s  |  GTX570 - 115 MH/s | 5770 - 210 MH/s | 5770 - 200 MH/s

I have 20 of these, I get 400 Sol/s at 130W power limit. At 100W they do 340 Sol/s

wow thats very close from the normal 1070 any heat problems  ? 80 C @ 400 Sol/s  ?

 Hashrates on the 1080s that YiiMP is showing are all WAY low.
 I wonder if they're all running kinda old miner software, or have them tuned WAY THE HECK low for efficiency?


 It's too bad the company that makes the Palit cards avoids marketing their cards in the USA, they seem to have some really good memory on them that make them very nice mining cards compared to most of the cards that are available over here.

ah that's why the palit are not avialable there? too bad they have a fabulous cooling system, like the super jetstream, my memory on them are micron not samsung but maybe they make better micron, i also see in their page that they use 8 phase and not 6 lilke the other, this make the OC more stable

im a bit new in mining but i have a realy good friend who gives me A LOT of instructions

i have evga sc 1060 for gaming now (using this system on everything, setting and testing up miners etc)
and i have asus 1080ti fe too ...

now 1080ti is mining through skein algo DigiBytes with +-850MH/s or +-1200DGB/day (private miner, undervolged on 75% of tdp, +150core, -300 mems....with common ccminer i have +- 550MH/s) for a 230w total system power consumption (+-180w only vga)

and for ZEC:

i tested only ewbf miner (i think it has best results nad is strongly recomended)
1060 (70% tdp, +140 core, -300 mems, +-90w) +-285sols/s (realy quiet, in case)
EDITED: 1060 (75% tdp, +140 core, +400 mems, +-90w) +-305sol/s (didnt tested with 1080ti yet)
1080ti (70% tdp, +250 core, -300mems, +-180w) +-680sol/s but its very noisy to reduce temps :-D and system with this card will be minning rig ... but still dont know what to buy for a cards, maybe another 1 1080ti + 4x 1070 (have now mb with 3*pcie16 and 3*pcei1x) and 1200 p2 evga psu (i think this will be enough)

... there is not a problem with performance vs power consumption on any 1xxx or 4xx/5xx ... problem is with 24/7 load and possible lifetime reduction of vga compared to their prices ... and this applies specialy for 1080ti .... (IMHO - 1080 is out of mining, 1070 has better perform vs price just like 1080ti and their lowering prices)

 Seems low for the 1080 Ti on ccminer, I was seeing about 500 Mh/s with minimal setting tweeks on my 1080, I believe I had the power limit turned down to about 150 watts possibly 160 on the card, stock memory clock, and +100 or +150 on the core clock.

 Were you using an older ccminer version perhaps, I was running the trpuvot (sp?) 2.0 version.

hmm good question Smiley

those 550MH/s was tried on ccminer-trpuvot rc2 8.0.7 ... and those 860 is from (modified?) sp-mod ccminer klaust

Cost per hash AMD RX 480 are better than Nvidia for ZCash. With a memory strap bios mod I get ~315 H/s from my RX 480's at ~125 W each.

I have a number of rigs.

6 x Sapphire RX480 = 1100W = 1800 hash
6 x 1070 = 1150W = 2700 hash

Just that the 1070 cost more but save a little bit of electricity in the long run

I have another rig 2 x 1070, 3 x 1080ti, 1 x 980ti = 1600W = 3600ish hash

No mods nothing. Everything stock with no overclocks
