Of course, Ethereum, but is there anything else worth looking at?

All my R9 series cards are mining ZEC, a bit lower power consumption and cooler cards.

What about dual mining with claymore, you can mine ethereum and zec, have you tried it?

Are you running Linux or Windows?

Any card memory limitations for Zcash (and others)?


Seems like you need a card with at least 4gb to mine ETH

My cards are with Tahiti and Hawaii chips which are really power hungry. Back in the days they were dual mining but the temperature and power consumption were pretty high.
With adding more GPUs I am having difficulties maintaining "proper" temperature in the rooms which is more important than few hashes more. Also lowering the power consumption of these cards gives me opportunity to add more new cards.

I am running Windows.

All my old cards (8xR9 270x 20MH/s each, 4xhd 7870XT 21MH/s each, 12 R7 380 22MH/s each) mine Ubiq and are making pretty good money still If they were mining Expanse their hashrates all drop by about 25%.

For the last couple months mining EXP on Tahiti/Pitcairn has been a bit more profitable than mining ZEC.

p.s. I use mph and their auto-exchange feature to convert EXP to ETH.

Ethereum is generally an issue with old cards since it needs more VRAM than other currencies. I'll stick to Zcash.

Etc has bright future, in china etc has very good reputation, so, in next couple months eth will end with POW, and ETC will be minable for longer period of time

Things have changed a lot in a few months, any changes in what you are mining or did you sell you old GPUs?
