Last week Nvidia introduced three new chipsets. Line GeForce RTX 20 operates on the basis of the Turing architecture that supports ray tracing and it seems like even cooking Breakfast. However, until the release is three weeks and the price starts from 48 thousand rubles. With this in mine it is possible on the previous generation. Understand which coins are suitable for this best.

Which algorithm for hashing to choose

We focus on two algorithms — Equihash and Ethash, also known as Dagger-Hashimoto. Besides the difference in the choice of coins, there are other differences. For example, Equihash increases consumption cards, which GPU is stronger than heat.

What will mine

Pick up coins will be three options for mining-farms: GeForce GTX 1070, 1080, and 1080 is the most expensive Ti. Each Riga on the tradition of eight GPUs. In General we have the following heraty.

For Ethash/Dagger-Hashimoto:

  • farm with eight Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070: 250 Mh/s (8 * 31 Mh/s);
  • farm with eight Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080: 300 Mh/s (8 * 37 Mh/s);
  • farm with eight Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti: 432 Mh/s (8 * 54 Mh/s).

For Equihash:

  • farm with eight Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070: 3600 sol/s (8 * 450 sol/s);
  • farm with eight Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080: 4000 sol/s (8 * 500 sol/s);
  • farm with eight Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti: 6000 sol/s (8 * 750 sol/s).

That on mine GeForce GTX 1070

To determine the profit according to the tradition of using the WhatToMine. Go to the main page and enter the appropriate Hasrat for each algorithm. First up is the Ethash.

The cost of electricity is taken for 5 cents or about 3.5 ruble. If your light is cheaper, profits will be more. Believe.

Now look Equihash.

Designated three leaders of the race for profitability. They all represent the algorithm Ethash.

  1. Metaverse — 4.56 dollar;
  2. Nicehash — 4.27 dollar;
  3. Ethereum — 4.06 dollars.

Nicehash immediately remove, since we are talking about the real serious mining coins but not dealing cards to rent to strangers. Replace that with Ethereum Classic.

  1. Metaverse — 4.56 dollar;
  2. Ethereum — 4.06 dollars;
  3. Ethereum Classic — 4.02 USD.

Mine that the GeForce GTX 1080

The same principle. Check the eight GeForce GTX 1080 on Ethash. Hasrat — 300 Mh/s, consumption — 1120 W.

And Equihash.

The leaders again present the algorithm Dagger-Hashimoto. Under the old scheme immediately disappeared Nicehash and make a current list of the coins to date.

  1. Metaverse — 5.43 dollar;
  2. Ethereum — 4.93 dollar;
  3. Ethereum Classic — 4.87 USD.

Mine that the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti

Go for dessert. Evaluate the profitability of a GTX 1080 Ti on Ethash.

And Equihash. Consumption of 1520 watts.

The leading coins of the former. However, other numbers.

  1. Metaverse — 8.43 dollar;
  2. Ethereum — 7.71 dollar;
  3. Ethereum Classic — 7.61 USD.

Despite the difference in profit and more power, many manners to prefer to dig the coins of the algorithm Equihash. This is especially true Zclassic (ZCL) and the zcash for (ZEC).

The reason is to lower the complexity of the network. For example, mine Ethereum Ethereum or classic with two or three farms is very risky. In these networks, too many miners competitor, so compete with them for the reward challenge.

Tips when choosing coins

It is essential to estimate the prevalence of coins. It is desirable that total trading volume of bitcoin has fluctuated between the equivalent of several thousand dollars. Why sit with a useless setkeyname that will not sell?

If you still decided to take a chance and have some fun with not the most popular coin, examine the project, read Wallpaper and see whether the team designated deadlines? By the way, who work in it are famous people with real social networks or bots with avatars from wastewater? The stronger the coin, the better.
