I'm trying to decide if I should buy 12 GTX 1080s or 12 GTX 1070 Tis.


I have no experience with either personally, I only have used AMD cards for eth.


So I'm asking you guys out there who have experience with either GTX 1080 and or 1070 Tis mining Equihash and can tell me if whattomine.com is accurate.


12x GTX 1080 Ti - $43.12 profit a day - 8220 Hashrate - Equihash - Zclassic @ 2280 watts - 52.87 watts per $

12x GTX 1080    - $35.86 profit a day - 6600 Hashrate - Equihash - Zclassic @ 1560 watts - 43.50 watts per $

12x GTX 1070 Ti - $30.21 profit a day - 5640 Hashrate - Equihash - Zclassic @ 1440 watts - 47.66 watts per $

12x GTX 1070    - $27.61 profit a day - 5160 Hashrate - Equihash - Zclassic @ 1440 watts - 52.15 watts per $

12x GTX 1060    - $16.54 profit a day - 3240 Hashrate - Equihash - Zclassic @ 1080 watts - 65.29 watts per $




So based on your guys experience when using any of these cards and mining Equihash, can you guys say whattomine.com is saying is accurate?



Is the GTX 1080 really the best watt per dollar card right now?

I have 16x 1070ti. About 500 sol / card. I'd say it's probably more like 42/day over the last week. Some equihash stuff mooned so the $ isn't that accurate

I personally would go for the 1080. For the same hash you need 1 GPU less.
So its more 11 x 1080 or 12 x 1070ti.
With 1080 you can add 1 more GPU later without buying Mainboard, PSU and so on.
With 1070ti you can mine some other coins too.
But you asked for ZEC so my advise is the 1080.

I'd say that it depends on card availability, in the terms of performance / price ratio they are almost the same
but in spring will be new gen from nv already avail, and so.. I think buying middle range card is more wisely? instead of high end?

Thanks for your way of thinking and going about it. I didn't think of it like that.


So I plan on going with a gtx 1080, now my problem is that I have this power supply:

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817194132

It's a enermax maxtytan 1250 watt power supply and only came with individual pcie 6+2 pcie cables:

Because of these pcie cables I guess I'll need to use 2 pcie slots from the PSU per each card since gtx 1080s have 2x8 pin connectors right?


Does anyone know where I can buy pcie cables that will allow me to attach two 6+2/8pin connectors per pcie cable that will be compatible for this power supply?

Check this cable, maybe is compatible with your PSU.
