Hello, have you tried them all? in what proportion are those cards? price / hash rate / wattage ? What is your experience, mining various algos (eth, zec, lbc...)

Yeah, why are graphics card miners so blind?  Huh

No offence, but this is just far too common thing.

sorry, my bad...
But when you read mining, and than you see hardware, first thing what is on my mind is GPU, ( i am mining for 3 years so far, i started with GPUs, and i am still using GPUs...)

I am kindly asking moderator to move this topic where its belong,

In general, the 1080 isn't too popular. For the price and power use, there are better options. However, in some cases, the lower popularity does mean you'll be able to get them more easily, or at a less inflated price. (At my local Best Buy, the 1080s were the only ones consistently in stock on the shelves.)


1060s, 1070s, and 1080tis are pretty good. The important thing to consider here is rig density.

With some fixed number of slots, you can make better use of them with 1080ti cards rather than 1060s. However, the 1080ti usually does not offer the same individual price/performance ratio that you can get with 1060s. For example, I can get 3GB 1060s for around $200-$210 after hunting around. A 1080ti would cost me at least $700, and it does not mine at triple the rates of 3GB 1060s on any algorithm I'm interested in. (For example, I can get about 300 H/s mining Zcash with each 1060. I haven't seen many reported hashrates for a 1080ti that exceed 750-800, at best.)

With 1060s, you're getting a smaller overall rig hashrate for the motherboard/CPU/ram/etc. that you got to support the GPUs, so that's what can start to mess with the overall price/performance ratio when compared to 1080ti cards.


Another thing to consider is resale value. A 1080ti will most likely retain its usefulness for longer than 1060s, assuming you maintain them just as well.

I think 1080tis build will be worth it in the long run if u have enough money as once they have ROI'd there profit will be far greater then 1070 etc , But if u dont have enough money its best to go 1070s , also the less amout of 1080 tis as compared to other cards will make the managing easier make less sound ,heat etc

I would only bother with 1080's if I somehow managed to get them for a price closer to a 1070 otherwise it simply might take far too long to reach ROI.

1080 is no good

On equihash
1060 270/sec
1070 430/sec
1080 ti  635/sec

On amazon current prices
1060 $300
1070. $500
1080 ti $750

Rate / price
1060 .90
1070 .86
1080ti  .85

Assuming the above are correct the 1080ti is the best bang for the buck.

You also have to consider what scale you are going to mine on. Motherboards, power supplies, risers, etc are not cheap. One rig with six 1080ti would certainly be more cost effective than building two rigs with six 1060.

Yes, I also agree that you should forget about 1080, it is not only the price and power usage, and the hashrate is not too good compared to 1070, so it is not worth in ROI.

I have all three other models, they are all good but in different price range, 1050ti also good in ROI but too slow.

Is there any difference, between OEM brands??
Because some time, price difference is more then 100$...worth to pay?!

Other available markets,beside Amazon?? nwegg is "out of stock"Sad(

Thanks in advance...

I have not noticed significant differences between brands but haven't tried them all. Different brands/models have different fan setups and more/bigger fans are better.

My son has two 1070s in his gaming computer. One is the premium evga and the other is the generic pny. They both oc to the same level and have the same hash rate. One doesn't have the fancy lights and stickers and didn't come with a poster.

It is very popular myth. Thanks to it 1080 are more cost effective than 1070/1060.

1080 535/sec
Amazon cost  $550
Rate/cost .97

How do you figure?

if you look at it from another angle. if hardware and space is a concern the choice is clear to me.
Performance, and price, and wattage, are very close to the same for these
(10-1080ti's)   =   (16-1070's)   =   (26- 1060 6gb)

The $200 1060 3gb perform on par with the 6gb but in the above example would save $2600

3gb cards have a problem or will very soon with the Etherium DAG file size don't they?

My numbers were for the 6 GB version.

The 6GB 1060 gets only marginally better performance over the 3GB versions when mining on equihash, which you mentioned earlier. For mining Zcash, the 3GB versions are far more cost-effective, at $200-$225 with some deal hunting.

The 6GB versions are a better choice for ETH, but ETH mining performance is not what you used in your earlier post.

You are correct. I wash referencing equihash performance. I still personally wouldn't buy a 3GB card and limit my options. Saving $75-$100 on a card that might not be able to mine everything isn't something I would recommend.

I was listing equihash because currently Zcash is more profitable to mine than ETH but that sometimes flops around the other way and I don't want to limit my options.

If you don't care about ever mining ETH yeah a 3GB 1060 is the probably the most bang for the buck card.

1070 FTW! Best price / performance ratio! A little OC and good cooling ang here you go!
