Choosing graphic cards for mining is one of the hardest decisions when investing in mining rig built. There is a lot of factors involved , gpu price, hashrate they get, power use and how long it will take to ROI. These are the top asked questions. We will try to get some answers in this post which cards for mining is the best to use.

Specially for new miners, its very hard to choose graphic cards. There is so many different models and types. Some of them are better doing then others on different mining algorithms. AMD is usually better from memory hard mining and NVIDIA usually for core hard algorithms. Simplest is to choose when you know which coins you want to mine. Im recommending to mine top market-cap coins because they will be your safest and most stable mining investment. Just because they have large size network, larger network means they are also more popular and most likely needed.

From Nvidia graphic cards from value range 1660Ti and from AMD RX5700. Both of these graphic cards has quite impressive performance on mining Ethereum and Ravencoin. Which are the top GPU mine-able coins currently. Both of these graphic cards are at around the same price range where RX5700 is slightly more expensive averaging at 330 euro per card. And 1660Ti is at 280 euro price tag. You choice of graphic cards depends also of course from the graphic card price you can get. someone might get better deal then others.

So to calculate which cards will do your ROI the fastest you’ll need to calculate.

  • how much hash-rate you’ll get with this card?
  • how much power uses my graphic card?
    • how much revenue it will bring?
    • how big profit it will make daily?
    The main question is how much profit it will make, because when you devide this number with the GPU price you paid. You will get your ROI timing.


 

To calculate which GPU is better ill take 2 exactly the same mining rigs, just with different graphic cards:

  • 12xgpu mining rig in closed case with 12xRX5700

  • 12xgpu mining rig in closed case with 12x1660Ti

Where RX5700 will be mining Ethereum as they are most efficient on ETH. 1660Ti will be mining Ravencoin, as best results it does have on mining Raven-coin.

 

  • Performance mining Ethereum 12xRX5700 670 mh/s @1800w power usage. Graphic cards bios has been modified, OC settings- Core clock 1340 – mem 910mhz – core voltage 760 – watt 119


  • Performance mining Ravencoin 12x1660Ti 180 mh/s @1400w power usage. Graphic cards OC settings mem +1200 – Power Limit 105


 

Both of these mining rigs uses hiveOS mining software.

When inserting all this data in mining calculator we are getting results, profit results for you might be different if you use different electric rate:

  • RX5700 revenue is 10.40usd in 24 hours and profit is 6.08usd


  • 1660Ti revenue is 7.36usd in 24 hours and profit is 4.03usd


Keep in mind Crypto currencies are extremely volatile , and these numbers can show different stats different day. But calculating averaging winner winner chicken diner is RX5700.

So my absolute best choice would be RX5700 they are just better earner, also they are not bad on mining RVN coin. Hasrate is about the same as 1660Ti, just uses slightly more power then the 1660Ti.

Honestly, the 1660 SUPERs would have been better if you just building a decently priced rig to mine RVN. the difference between the two is nothing but the price is a big factor. I like the RX5700's But it's seems the same AMD stuff, only good for Eth-hash, well now maybe KAWPOW after teamred did there miner 7.1 it's getting much better hashrates. Ideally you'd want to compare RTX2060's to RX5700's they're in about the same price range. 1660ti's are all but basically dead.

IMO it wasn't a fair test, comparing a mature algo with mature optimized SW and a long history
of AMD outperforming Nvidia with a brand new algo with brand new SW and no history of performance
on either platform.

Before making my final judgment about this I request you use those RX5700 cards on RandomX algorithm aka Monero, you should have better gains using AMD cards to mine Monero, the 1660 use latest architecture, this makes them less power hungry, that's a point

can you test again with 1660super

this card is good hashrate for price more than 1660ti.

It is better the 1660 Super ... you can fin it for 205€ and it gives 32Mhs in Ethash at 69W-70W...

1660Ti is more expensive and you will not be able to compensate that extra 70€

Also you put PL 75 in EThash of 1660TI the 1660Super ca  work at 56%

Also please specify that you made a Bios Mod on the RX5700 cards...

What test would you else suggest which could beat these 2 GPU ROI?

Randomx is most profitable to mine with CPUs like Ryzen 9

Yes you are right Supper hash rates are close to Ti hasrate and price difference nearly 20%
Super potentially is better for mining Then 1660Ti in terms of price per hash.

You should compare each card with the same algo(s) to see which algos perform better on which HW.
You could then combine them for an overall result. If you're really ambitious you could test more algos.

yeah i have tested performance on same algos, i have just chosen most profitable coins currently to mine with specific HW
