Best graphics card for mining in 2019. The experts ‘ recommendations and the profitability of GPU from Nvidia and AMD

Last spring attracted miners, holders, and other representatives of the industry of cryptocurrency. The reason — the courses coins. For example, in early March for Ethereum gave $ 127, and by the last day of may the price was 262 USD. The Bitcoin Gold for the same time increased from 10 to 31 dollars. All this affects the profitability of mining, so mining cryptocurrencies connect new people. Tell you what graphics card will be suitable for this activity than others.

What are system

The miners are a relatively small selection. If you do not choose the ASIC, then look to the side of the cards. But if you want a graphics card, it is either AMD or Nvidia. They are also called “red” and “green” respectively. Each has its own advantages, disadvantages and predisposition to certain cryptocurrencies.

Today is June 10. The calculations below are valid for the current courses: Ethereum — 245 dollars Monero — 86, ETC — of 8.39, the Beam is 0.55, Zcoin — 9.63 USD. To get actual profit in any time by using the ROI calculator mining 2CryptoCalc.

What kind of graphics card used for mining. The world’s choice

To know the preferences of miners around the world against the cards is possible, and it does not have to conduct a census. To get an idea about the popularity of different GPU to help site mining platform Hive OS. If you are not familiar with it, read our review. After reading encourage you to read the instructions on the overclocking on this platform.

Go to the statistics page and immediately know the answer to the main question — card, what manufacturer dominate the market? The answer is clearly to please fans of AMD.

Win it for them. The odds are tiny but it’s there.

Now for the specifics, that is, models of video cards.

Source: statistics of HiveOS

Almost 50 percent of all AMD have on Radeon RX 580 with 8 GB and RX 570 4 GB. Third place went to the simplified version of RX 580, but the fourth was RX 470. The top five closes RX 570 8 GB.

With Nvidia, the situation is different: here the top model cheaper. There are both versions of the GTX 1060 and 1070. The last mark of 10 per cent crossed the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11 GB.

By the way, on the right is the rating of ASIC-miners — for the most curious.

On the bottom than in Russia

Audience 2Биткоина and 2Miners prefers Nvidia. At the same time almost a third of respondents have cards of both manufacturers.

What graphics card for mining to choose? Expert advice

Vision of the situation shared Mikhail Korolev, the founder of 2Bitcoins.ru

From the point of view of buying graphics cards for mining is one simple rule. Divide the price of the video card on Hasrat and get the unit cost of Hasrat. Than this figure less the better buy.

Of course, it is worth considering the parameters themselves farms. For example, generally one motherboard supports 8 cards, but the price of so-called “kit” — motherboard, CPU, power supply, memory and hard disk also affects the final price of the units Hasrat. All this should be taken into account.

The purchase of the graphics card recalls buying a car.

The purchase card is similar to buying a car. Bought new in the cabin, there is a guarantee and confidence that it will work flawlessly for at least two years. But as soon as the car leaves the lot, the price drops by 30-50 percent.

If your electricity costs and other items, you can purchase a new card and quickly pay off, buy — it will be less of a problem. If there is no certainty, the cards — also a good option. The failure of one card out of ten it will be much cheaper than buying a new one. Even after two years of mining maps work great. The fans can be changed in case of problems, and thermal grease too.

So which manufacturer is winning?

AMD or Nvidia? I prefer Nvidia because of the simplicity to set up and less energy consumption and a greater number of supported algorithms. However, AMD usually is more advantageous in terms of price per unit Hasrat. While they are more complicated, though not impossible.

Another thing: AMD produce more heat and consume more electricity. It should be considered in the context of ventilation and electricity costs.

We took the comment from Gleb Shirshov, COO 2Miners.com. He spoke about the special equipment and its benefits.

Share the experience: the cost of the build farm can be reduced if you use a server power supply. Server blocks the price of body kit of a farm of eight and eight GTX 1050ti 1080ti will be comparable. Motherboard, memory, CPU always cost the same.

If you use a normal PSU for the PC, then there is clearly 1080ti will be much more expensive. After all, one medium unit at 700-800 watts can draw only two cards, that is the rig of 8 cards will have to buy the whole 4 unit — and it is very expensive. The server block on any farm need only one and they are well-proven. However, they can only be used if the farms are not at home or in the office, and are in separate rooms. Why? Because they are noisy.

Do not forget about the tricks.

There is a special graphics card for mining without a port to connect the monitor. These cards shouldn’t be either, but you have to understand that they are just like ASIC miners. It is unlikely you will be able to apply them to something else, that is not for mining but for gaming, for example. The demand for them is significantly lower, and they are cheaper. If you believe in mining, and his prospects, you can buy them very cheap.

Finally, Hleb recalls warranty. This is important.

Besides the price, you should pay attention to the seller’s guarantee. Very often manufacturers offer a guarantee of two years, which is a significant plus. When mining the card works 24/7, so in some poorly made GPU fail coolers or anything else. Such graphic card warranty, can be exchanged for new or repaired. By the way, in Europe it is much simpler than in Russia.

Insights

The choice of graphics card for mining — the process of individual. For this you need to evaluate many factors-type of cost of electricity, availability of ventilation in the room and the budget. You should then see the current profitability of mining and do not forget to calculate the cost of one megahee. It is also worth to estimate the return on investment and be prepared for the fact that the term can be stretched.
