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.


You are right on card performances, but for the rig building cost, you should make it like: 1 rig of 6 cards 1080Ti need only 2 PSU 850W + 1 CPU +1 MB + 1 RAM..... while 3 rig of 6 cards 1060 need 3 PSU 850W + 3 CPU, 3 MB + 3 RAM... The peripherals' price is not cheap Cheesy

For me, 1080 Ti is a good deal but I'm just started with a small budget, so I'm going with 1070.


I'd say you're definitely skimping on the PSUs there, especially for 24/7 operation, and even after messing with clock & power settings.
I can confirm 6 1080 Ti with 2 850W PSUs have no problem.
for a 6x 1080ti build, assuming undervolted, what is total system wattage?

I was watching a video, I believe BBT and he had a 6x 1060 GB setup only drawing 500 watts for the entire rig. I am currently modeling my build after that one, but so far I only have 2 cards out of the 6 it will eventually have. I think it is a pretty close estimate as I am just pushing 200 watts right now with 2 cards and the rest of the system. Figuring 50 W for the system at idle, that is only about 75 watts per card, so 75 W x 6 + 50 is 500 watts right on.

To get this the power limit setting in afterburner needs to be set to 60% and I also under-clock my core by -100 since it has little effect on mining performance (especially with Ethereum). I have tried +100 and +150 as well, but I need to adjust the power limit to run the core higher and the core clocks really seems to not effect the hash rate at all. The memory clock does though and I usually run that at +600 to +700.

I am going with a 6x1070 Zotac Mini rig which is consuming all together around 750 W after pretty much fiddling with the undervolting to find the sweet spot. AMD is much better for ETH, but ETH will be dead for mining next year

Now these cards are often in mining and they become cheap, especially nvidia 1050ti. Of course latest modelbis always better but it has very high price. For example you can get new nvidia 1050ti for 150$ but for 1080ti you need nearly 750$, difference is 600$ and with that 600$ you can buy 4 additional 1050ti. Of course 1080ti will pass more time and will be more useful but I wouldn't buy it now.

I would like to get the 1080ti but I would then need to also upgrade my PSU which is a cost I probably cannot afford so I think im going to go for the 1070 because I can purchase it sooner and just plug it in and go. I am going to check out the AMD side like someone suggested first though.

about 1000 -1100  watts at 60% tdp

  depends on the tdp  some cards are 275 tdp not 250

I have a 1080ti rig and from my experience so far my 1070 rigs are better value for the money.

With the 1070 finally getting back under $400 (Newegg pricing, saw 2 of them today at $399) it's taking back it's place as arguably the best NVidia mining choice for most algos NVidia is good at.

 1080ti pricing seems to have been going UP a bit lately - I can't remember the last under $700 listing on Newegg for one, been a month or so I think.

 1080 ti is still better from a "rig density" point of view, though, and any of the 1070/1080/1080ti options are close on both hash/$ and hash/watt when you figure them at the TOTAL SYSTEM COST AND POWER CONSUMPTION level.


 Gonna be interesting to see where the "1070 ti" specs end up at, and pricing on it, and where it falls in the efficiency and hash/$ spectrum - presuming it DOES actually happen.
