Best Ethereum Mining GPUs – A Benchmark And Optimization Guide Updated – Pagina Two, HotHardware
Ethereum Mining GPU Show And Optimization Tips
Right out the gate, wij identified our Founders Edition NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 to be one of our most efficient miners, with attractive temp and power draw numbers. Moreover, the GTX 1070 can be lightly tweaked for some significant voorstelling gains. To determine this, wij downloaded a free copy of NiceHash mining software for its no-frills benchmark utility, and used the DaggerHashimoto algorithm for Ethereum mining, to find the hashrate spectacle of each GPU wij tested. The higher the hash rate the quicker the GPU can solve the algorithm. Miners are rewarded for solved algorithms te the form of cryptocurrency—Ethereum te our specific test case.
*Note: Wij used NiceHash for its simpleness. It’s good to maximize profit spil it will switch inbetween the selected algorithms and crypto-coin types based on current market value, such spil those for Bitcoin, Ethereum, and others. Yet it’s not the most efficient way to mine any one specific coin type. Shop around and do a bit of research to find the one for the cryptocurrency you’d like to mine and for your specific needs.
Ethereum GPU Mining – Of Hash Rates And Power Draw
With that out of the way, let’s look at some high level Ethereum hash rates and power draw across a number of current generation graphics cards.
Looking at the results, wij can see why many of thesis cards are totally sold out, much to the chagrin of gamers everywhere. AMD’s Radeon RX 580 and 480 vertoning superb voorstelling for their price range. Unluckily, they are utterly hard to find spil a result and are now selling inbetween $500 to $600, spil dealers price gouge due to the supply/request dynamic. Te addition, NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1070 is also a brute when it comes to affordable mining, even before wij optimized it (more on this shortly). Another option is a Radeon R9 390X, which shows similar strong vertoning. However, the 390x is a power-hungry card that can still kasstuk your wallet for $600 – $700 spil of this writing, which is just nutty. Regardless, what you can see here is that gaming spectacle with thesis cards doesn’t always directly correlate to Ethereum mining spectacle. Ultimately, while the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti may look like the king miner, its power consumption and hefty price tag also make it a less-than-efficient solution.
Tweaking Show And Power Consumption For ETH Mining
Elementary GPU tweaks for speeds, feeds and power targets can make a world of difference.
That leaves the GeForce GTX 1070 Founder’s Edition spil a possibly our most attractive option (again, depending on market price), and with a little tweaking the mid-range card has even more to give. To optimize it wij used MSI Afterburner. Wij kicked up its memory interface clock +650MHz and brought the Power Limit target down to 66% to reduce houtvezelplaat power consumption and warmth output. GPU temps hover around a cool 66°C, which is down from 77° before made our tweaks. That brought our hash rate up more than 10% to 31.775MH/s from 27.242MH/s.
