Yeah Vega cards is a beast, and have been for a long time. Now with AMD Memory Tweaking it's even better. I'm glad I recently bought five Vega 56s for 190$ each. The profit for me is with expensive electicity (0.12$/kWh) is 1.7$ a day for four cards, and that's at pool side.

Using your numbers with whattomine I get the following:

1x rx580 8gb daily return mining Ethash @ 130 watts:
$0.46 revenue
$0.14 profit

1x 1660 or 1660ti or 1070 or P106-100 daily return mining RVN @ 106 watts:
$0.64 revenue
$0.38 profit

Used P106-100 are the same price as used Rx580 8gb; its a no brainer: over 2x profit and way more mineable algos.

New rx580 8gb are $180 lowest I can find.  The second you buy this, its resale value is $100.

New 1660s are $220 and its resale value is $200 at worst; its a no brainer.


rx vega 56 @240$ second hand doing 1,3$/day merged mining,  power consumption around 0.3$
sorry nvidia fanboys letting you down
and just to remember, not all algo showing on whattomine

What are you mining with your cards?

Show me the numbers for how AMD polaris has the best price performance.


I bought a Sapphire RX570 4G gaming for 130€ brand new in january. It's got Samsung memory, can hold 2100MHz mem speed and gets 31-31.5MH/s mining ETASH
Mining CN Heavy: 915H/s
CN turtle: 8500H/s
CN Waltz: 1300-1320H/s

Any GTX1660Ti is twice more expensive where I live.

I'm not trying other algorithms, because I mostly want to mine privacy based coins.

I've got 14 RX570's sitting around. Turned them off several months ago, and haven't put them back to work. At $0.16 per kWh, whatever I mine currently makes no money so I just haven't bothered. At this stage, if I could be @rsed, I'd sell them off for $50 each. They paid for themselves several times over.

The RX 570 is the goto-card on the AMD side.  I sold my RX 580s only to buy back the same number of RX 570, because they consume less power, and the hash is the same.
The 1660 looks to be a good contender to replace my 1070s... 
The whattomine power figures are waay off.  Looks like all cards consume 130 watts carte blanche...
My RX 570s need 110 Watts at 30.5 MH/s ETH
My GTX 1070s are at 115-117Watts mining Ravens...

Fellow miners, get your thens and thans in order and help other forum readers understand what you are writing. Remember the grammar basics:  A larger THAN B (comparator operator). If something THEN ....

Still mining with my little 4 RX574 rig, I can pay the electricity bill (same 0.16$ per KW/h) and when price will rise again the coin should value much more than the cost of electricity.

And if your coin does not grow? you will be at a loss. Maybe we should immediately sell the coins in order to pay the cost of electricity?

I'm rather confident in my mining choices, otherwise I'd mine ETH. Time will tell if I was right or if I wasted energy. Anyways, during late fall / winter / spring the rig warms the living room, I don't use any heater  Grin

Here is the price:
1660 is $220.

1660ti is $279. 

2060 is $350.

P106-100 is $100

So please buy AMD GPU if you want to mine XMR

New Nvidia Geforce GTX1660Ti is cool for mining Ethereum. The price of it is also OK, it varies between 299 and 349 USD. And its memory is 6-8 Gb. The tests of this stuff have shown 30 MH/s  and less energy consumption.

I'm sure most of mining clients will adopt 1600 series because most miner will switch to that gpu to earn more profits. With the increase of hash power in the crypto space make the blockchain much safer and faster.

I can buy 2 RX580 8GB for the same price, and the 580 hashes Etash at 31MH/s. Unless you pay more than 0.16USD/KW/H, you have a faster break even with a pair of 580s.

I even find it hard to imagine what will happen with mining capacities in a few years. I am not at all sure that for amateurs or semi professionals with small farms there will be an opportunity to earn money from mining.

I have one EVGA GTX 1660 TI single fan model and I am thinking about picking up a couple more, I was thinking about the 1660 model but I do like the idea of having faster memory bandwidth for those algos that require it.  Do you guys like the two fan models or do you find the single fan models to be adequate for your cooling and overclock needs?

That 3-slot EVGA 1 fan editions are great for mining and cool enough. But the resale value of 2 or 3 fan cards are higher, because its more the style of "Gamers". Also every blinki LED shit is a good bonus on top.

Thanks for the feedback, that makes me more inclined to stick with the single fan fat heatsink cards although I may pick up one of those MSI two fan versions for the same price just to compare.

I disagree. 

For low end to mainstream GPUs, I believe gamers prefer single fan models. 

For mid to high end GPUs, I agree gamers will prefer dual fan models.

using iRonNuke's $1.7 a day for 4x Vega 56s this compares to:

$2.56 a day for 4x 1660's using slightly less power and each costing $220 new.

fmz89 as iRonNuke asked:

What are you mining with your cards?

Please enlighten me as to how you manage:

If you want to mine CN variants AMD is significantly more effective.

However with ETH, if you are betting on an increase in price: I believe you would be better off buying ETH directly right now.

I agree that mining ETH with 1660 or 1660ti doesn't make sense right now; better to mine another coin and exchange it to ETH with them.

As ETH is scheduled to switch algos soon, I would avoid choosing GPUs based on their ability to mine Ethash.

1600 series Nvidia GPUs are significantly better than everything else for mining. 

The 1660ti almost matches a 1070's performance with only 75 watts. 

Currently, most mining clients don’t support the 1660 or 1660ti.

Linux drivers currently only have limited support for the 1660 and 1660ti.

The 1670 or 1670ti will be the next GPU that will be optimal to buy for mining. They will likely have a 150-160 watt TDP, with an optimal mining powerlimit around 90-95 watts.

plan accordingly Grin
yeah the newer a graphics card will be the better the potential of the graphics card for mining cryptocurrency if someone wants to use the GTX 1660 is a great idea because that's the latest version of GTX.

New Nvidia Geforce GTX1660Ti is cool for mining Ethereum. The price of it is also OK, it varies between 299 and 349 USD. And its memory is 6-8 Gb. The tests of this stuff have shown 30 MH/s  and less energy consumption.
I can buy 2 RX580 8GB for the same price, and the 580 hashes Etash at 31MH/s. Unless you pay more than 0.16USD/KW/H, you have a faster break even with a pair of 580s.

2X RX580 8GB: https://www.coinwarz.com/calculators/ethereum-mining-calculator/?h=62.00&p=200.00&pc=0.16&pf=0.90&d=1877509334277410&r=2.00000000&er=0.02981921&btcer=5379.70000000&hc=300.00

Also for 700USD, the Radeon VII can pull 100MH/s (undervolt + OC memory).

I agree that mining ETH with 1660 or 1660ti doesn't make sense right now; better to mine another coin and exchange it to ETH with them.

As ETH is scheduled to switch algos soon, I would avoid choosing GPUs based on their ability to mine Ethash.

They want to do an audit of PROG and its suppose to be complete sometime in July.  So who knows when they would switch.

I agree that they have a track record of not following their schedule.  

As GPUs currently take more than 6 months to ROI (barring free power) I would still avoid choosing GPUs based on their ability to mine Ethash.
