if you look purely at current profit, ETH is still among the most profitable coins for this type of card. It's usually a struggle between ETH, PIRL and ZCL. Today it's ETH. GTX 1060 may be less interesting for ETH than a RX type of card but it's still a good performer. With my rig today, PIRL comes first with 41.94$ then comes ETH with 41.32$, then ELLA above 39$ and then all other coins around 33$ and below. I know the theory says that ETH is not the best coin to mine but in my case it's best one of the best for a while. By the way, I simply use whattomine.com.


whattomine.com uses 22.5 mh/s for ethash per card as default (most 3gb cards coming in now are Hynix which doesn't do more than 20 when pushed to the moon). When you use 24 hours calculation the top 5 coins are all equihash. Switch over to 7 days (more accurate) and ETH falls to 7th place.

Also there are coins not mentioned on whattomine.com which in itself is a rough estimate at best.

You have a point, Hynix is not good for ETH but I have only GPUs with Samsung memory. If I take an average on 7 days, ETH comes first and PIRL comes second so it's more or less the same as the daily estimate. It's been like this for months. Like you said, it's only an estimation but at the end of the day, what I get in my wallet is quite close and even higher sometimes.

There may be other coins that are not listed on whattomine but I don't know them so it's difficult to say which one is best.

Which other coin should be performing better on a GTX 1060 ? I could try it to see if it's better than ETH.

13 GPU Nvidia Rig running under Ubuntu 16 (eth hash rate: 300+Mh/s @ 1000W for whole rig): 3x EVGA GTX 1060 3Gb (24MH/s @ 65W) + 6x MSI Armor GTX 1060 3Gb (24MH/s @ 70W) + 1x MSI GTX 1060 (24Mh/s @ 65W) + 3x Zotac GTX 1060 (24MH/s @ 65 W). PSU 2400W, Asrock ASRock H110 Pro BTC+, cheap Chinese risers, Kingston SSD 120Gb, 8Gb memory. Selling some of my GPUs (around 200€, still under warranty), if you're interested, contact me in private.

I prefer 3Gb versions cause they are cheaper and have smaller ROI time. The hashrate difference is about 5-10% on Equihash, and I'm not sure mining Ethereum on Nvidia is good idea at all.

They are the same only real difference is resale value of the 6gb is higher and can mine ETH longer, but you shouldnt be mining ETH with NVIDIA cards anyway.

Dang.. Why do yall say that lol. I just set up a mini mining rig (2 1050 TIs right now) and am looking to either add more 1050 TIs or go to 1060 3GBs...
I'm currently mining Ethereum right now on SimpleMining OS and using ethpool and claymore-eth-v10.5.

Now is 2019 and 2020 is coming up in 3 months.

Considering the cheap price and mining with it, is gtx 1060 3gb still worth it vs 6gb?

3 Go Cards are not a good option any more for Etash as you need at least 4 Go for Ethereum and Ethereum Classic...

Now 3 gigabyte cards are not enough for mining some coins, for example, such as Green. With three gigabytes, you just do not start mining. In a year or a year and a half, six gigabytes will be few.
