Hello,

Apologies if this is in the wrong thread. I saw two similar threads from 2014 but no details in these threads with respect to the performance of mining on Softlayer.

I currently have free credit at $1000 dollars a month.

Having the most basic server + GPU config will put me out of pocket at 145.69 per month.

Ideally I'd look to mine Ethereum classic or Monero since I know Ethereum + Bitcoin hash difficulty is so high.

Does anyone have any experience with respect to performance?

The most basic GPU is the NVIDIA K2 (+$333.35 /mo.) - but it can be upgraded to the below options (assuming I want to pay more per month):

NVIDIA Tesla K80 Graphic Card [$565.00]

NVIDIA Tesla M60 GPU Accelerator - Software may be required (Product is subject to availability - Please contact Sales to order) [$847.50]



Below is the most basic server+GPU setup

$1,145.69 /mo.

+ $0.00 in one-time fees

Any advice ?

Worth upgrading the GPU or scratch this idea altogether?


If I'm not paying electricity I imagine making the extra 145 USD per month is feasible to at least cut even?

Thanks
