Gtx 1060 Ethereum Hashrate

Nvidia's Geforce Gtx 1060 3gbs Rendered Less Than Optimal For Ethereum Mining After Windows Update

Nvidia's Geforce Gtx 1060 3gbs Rendered Less Than Optimal For Ethereum Mining After Windows Update

Update: We did some more digging around and found out the root cause of the 1060 3GB not mining Ethereum: a windows 10 update that has increased the OS footprint on the vRAM. Earlier today, our US & Youtube Editor, Keith May discovered something pretty darn interesting. On a very lean windows installation, Ethereum mining is now over 3 GB in size. This might sound like random gibberish to the average person, but to the crypto-enthusiast this has far reaching implications. In laymans terms, it means that the graphics memory required to mine ETH is now over 3GB in size, making most of the economical variants of the GTX 1060 useless in a mining rig. Windows update causes GTX 1060 3GBs to become less than optimal for mining, AMDs Radeon colored alternatives to see increased demand from miners While the DAG file itself is still smaller than the 3GB limit, there is a small portion of memory that is occupied by the OS and other entities as well. After the recent windows update, it is not not possible to mine Ethereum on a normal windows build with a 3GB 1060. You can still however mine it on Windows Server or Linux which do not take up as much vRAM as Windows 10. The current DAG file size is 2.33 GB which essentially means that windows is now taking up more than 660 mb of vRAM under windows 10 conditions. We are running a very learn installation of windows 10 and were unable to mine on it. As mentioned previously, Windows Server and Linux based rigs should still work fine. The DAG file is a directed acyclic graph that initially stood for Dagger Hashimoto. The DAG file is what makes the Ethash an ASIC resistant algorithm and essentially needs to be stored in the miners memory while the processor does what it does. Earlier today Keith discovered that the file size as well as th Continue reading >>

Best Gpu For Mining By The Numbers

Best Gpu For Mining By The Numbers

Best GPU for Mining Cryptocurrency in 2018 Recently I did a quick video on my mining rig build . It turned out to be a very popular video. Something I didnt really expect to happen. The comments section raged on over my choice of GPU. Some people immediately understood while others thought it was a terrible choice. Of course, as with most YouTube comment sections people are heavy on opinions but come up very short when the facts are on the table. So what is the best GPU for mining cryptocurrency? Were going to discuss that in detail in this article. The question you need to ask first is what is your goal? And that really matters when determining the best GPU for mining! Youll understand why in just a minute as we explore GPU mining options. Regardless of your choice though, I encourage you to just have fun with it! Fun first, profit second. If you approach it like that then things wont matter as much in the end. Of course, if it is just about money for you then stick around because I will walk that road too! Defining Your Cryptocurrency Mining Goals The first thing you need to ask yourself is What are my mining goals? Seriously. This is important. Is it to make the most profit? Is it to mine the most coins in the shortest period of time? Is it to just have fun? Are you on a limited budget or have unlimited funds? The answer to that question will dramatically change the rig you decide to build. Mining with Speed (Hashrate) as the Most Important Factor You can build a rig that costs $50,000 and will mine cryotocurrency with incredible hashrates, but that machine will likely take 3-4 years just to pay for itself and require you to upgrade the electrical panel in your house to feed it. Additionally, with this being an emerging market there is no guarantee the whole game is Continue reading >>

Mining Ethereum With Evga Geforce Gtx 1060 (single Fan), 6gb Gddr5 Review

Mining Ethereum With Evga Geforce Gtx 1060 (single Fan), 6gb Gddr5 Review

Mining Ethereum With EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 (Single Fan), 6GB GDDR5 Review ThisEVGA GeForce GTX 1060 SC GAMING, ACX 2.0 (Single Fan), 6GB GDDR5is the second graphics card I've put on test for mining Ethereum. Bought from Amazon, together with the rest of mining rig equipment at the end of December, paid about $275 for this card . At the start using default out of the box settings, I was able to get out just about 14MH/S, which felt wrong, as I was hoping to get at least 22 MH/s with this card. Unboxing EVGAGeForceGTX1060 SC GAMING,ACX2.0 (Single Fan),6GBGDDR5 As it was Christmas time when I added this card to the mining rig, I decided to leave it as it is for a couple of days. In combination with Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 560 4GBgraphics card I was able to get about 25 MH/s hashing power, which back at the day combined produced about $2.44 from dual mining Ethereumand Siacon, see: I'm Making $2.44 Per Day By Dual Mining Ethereum and Siacoin, and I'm NOT HAPPY YET! Shortly before the New Year's Eve I decided to experiment with overclocking settings and was able to get this card up to ~ 19MH/s if dual mining, and about mentioned 22MH/s if single Ethereummining. Currently, this card is installed on a mining rig and I noticed following measurements for temperature and fan speed In general, I would love to get the temperature below 70 Celsius, asIbelieve lower temperatures and slower fan speeds extends the total lifetime for graphics cards. Mining with EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 SC GAMING, ACX 2.0 (Single Fan), 6GB GDDR5 As you can see from the picture above, I've in total 3 graphics cards, what is interesting both AMD and NVIDIA cards. As of right now, this EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 card produces the most hashing power and for the money paid I would call this one of the most reasonab Continue reading >>

Test Results: Ethereum Hash Rate

Test Results: Ethereum Hash Rate

The Best GPUs For Ethereum Mining, Tested and Compared Page 1:Mining Ethereum: GPU Power Consumption Page 2:Six Useful Tips For Configuring Mining Rigs Page 3:Test Results: Power Consumption For Mining & Gaming Page 5:Test Results: Performance Per Watt And Dollar Page 6:Test Results: Fan Speeds & Temperatures (Mining & Gaming) & Conclusion Page 6:Test Results: Fan Speeds & Temperatures (Mining & Gaming) & Conclusion In the chart downpage, we compare the performance of all GPUs in Ethereum mining, measured by hash rate in MH/s (million hashes per second). We use Claymore's Dual Ethereum AMD+Nvidia GPU Miner in "-benchmark" mode, specifying a DAG epoch of 190, buying us a bit of time before that epoch comes and goes. Bear in mind that these hash-rate results should be considered alongside our power-consumption numbers. Besides higher energy bills, power-hungry GPUs are also more difficult to cool. That is a key point to keep in mind from a card-longevity standpoint, too. If you have multiple high-wattage cards crammed into a poorly ventilated space, their reliability could be severely affected. Lower power consumption reduces thermal load, making it so that you have to worry less about the temperatures of your precious graphics cards. During all measurements, we keep a steady temperature of around 70F (21.1C) and a humidity level close to 35%. For now, we have Nvidia's Pascal-based cards tested at their default clock rates. But we plan to add AMD's current-generation products soon, along with configurations optimized for mining. Nvidia's Ethereum mining performance king is the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, with the company's much-more-expensive Titan Xp following closely. The GTX 1070 Founders Edition takes the lead from MSI's 1070 Ti, while both GeForce GTX 1080s that we tested Continue reading >>

Gtx 1060 Discussion Thread

Gtx 1060 Discussion Thread

Tried to search on different topics and blogs and couldn't find the exact results. So, what is the hashrate of GTX 1060 on different algos? Especially on Ether. around 20MH 90w, probably a bit more with oc, 24 should be possible with the highest clock other algo should be in the range of 1/3 less than the 1070 Bought 1060 today, mostly for gaming though. 22.5 MH/s on Lyra2REv2 @ 1911 MHz core clock speed Will post updates about other algos later. Thank you for your contribution. As surprising as it is, not so many people posted the hashrates they get. Could you please give me what you can get on Groestl and Neoscrypt ? Thank you for your contribution. As surprising as it is, not so many people posted the hashrates they get. Could you please give me what you can get on Groestl and Neoscrypt ? LBRY seems to be the most profitable now, unless there are some other undiscovered coins that I don't know. on neos is basically like a 970, but the consumption should be no more than 100w Thanks for sharing, I'm curious about ETH hashrate too if you can test it. Didn't manage to run it, but I think it will be around 18.5 MH/s without manual OC. Forgot to mention, my GPU is MSI ARMOR, core clock is 1900-1940 during mining (out of box speed), while tdp is 70-75%, temperature is 65-69 degress, ambient temperature is around 23. Overall is seems to be 66% of GTX 1070 while being also 66% of it's price. So I would recommend to pick 1070 in most cases. Thank you for sharing it. While on Neoscrypt I'm well suprised, I have to say that in LyraRE2V2, it sucks ... I'm glad of the purchase of my 1070 finally ! Thank you for sharing it. While on Neoscrypt I'm well suprised, I have to say that in LyraRE2V2, it sucks ... I'm glad of the purchase of my 1070 finally ! That's Lyra2v2 on the screens Continue reading >>

Bitnand Offers Up A Mining Optimized Gtx 1060 6gb Card For Just $389

Bitnand Offers Up A Mining Optimized Gtx 1060 6gb Card For Just $389

by Rob Williams Friday, February 16, 2018 BITNAND Offers Up A Mining Optimized GTX 1060 6GB Card For Just $389 The effect that cryptocurrency mining has had on the graphics card market has been so extreme, very few people could have predicted it. GPUs that were as easy to purchase as a gallon of milk became as hard to find as the hottest deal at Best Buy on Black Friday. In addition to the rarity, inflated pricing has been a real issue as well, with many GPUs costing twice as much (or more) than their intended MSRP. A $649 GeForce GTX 1080 Ti , for example, can currently be had as "cheap" as $900, and that's a relative bargain compared to some of the other pricing we've seen. It's not hard to find the same GPU going for $1,300+ at virtually any e-tailer. One of the saving graces for gamers has been companies selling pre-built systems, like MAINGEAR , where adding a high-end GPU to a build doesn't inflate the price by the same degree, but not everyone is in the market for an entirely new rig. It's been rumored that AMD and NVIDIA are considering releasing mining-specific GPUs, although some third-parties have already gotten started. That includes BITNAND, which is now taking orders for a GeForce GTX 1060 optimized for mining. There are no video outputs on the card, and for that matter there's no PCIe bracket either, though like their gamer-centric counterparts a 6-pin PCIe power connector is required. The card is also passively cooled. That's ideal for those wanting to run a fleet of them, especially in a climate controlled room, because there's no need to worry about fans failing. BITNAND is charging $389 for this card, and says it will begin shipping at the end of the month. Compared to standard GeForce GTX 1060s, $389 isn't the best deal. Amazon lists a handful at $3 Continue reading >>

Gtx 1060 9gbps Hashrate - Crypto Mining Blog

Gtx 1060 9gbps Hashrate - Crypto Mining Blog

All About BTC, LTC, ETH mining as well as other alternative crypto currencies Quick Look at the ASUS GeForce GTX 1060 OC 6GB 9Gbps Back in March when Nvidia introduced the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti it has also announced two upgrades the GeForce GTX 1060 with 9 Gbps and GeForce GTX 1080 with 11 Gbps memory. These two new models with faster video memory did not get a lot of attention and they have just recently started becoming available on the market. The GTX 1060 with 9 instead of 8 GHz GDDR5 video memory is what caught our attention and more specifically the ASUS GeForce GTX 1060 OC 6GB 9Gbps and we took one for a quick spin to see its crypto mining performance. The faster GDDR5 memory from Samsung found in this model is what makes the GPU pretty interesting for the currently quite popular and profitable Equihash and Ethash crypto algorithms. We wanted to see the mining performance with ETH and ZEC, even though the memory bus on the GTX 1060 is just 192-bit and that is a bit of a limiting factor. The big question here is how this GTX 1060 model compares to GTX 1070 that uses slower GDDR5 memory clocked at 8GHz (like the regular GTX 1060), but with 256-bit bus and comes with significantly higher number of CUDA cores. Going for the Ethereum (ETH) mining performance with the latest Claymore ETH miner we are not that happy with the performance we see just about 17 MHS at stock settings. We kind of expected the lower result due to the 192-bit memory bus, but had hoped that the hgiher clocked GDDR5 memory could help for a bit better results. The GTX 1070 does about 25 MHS at stock settings, but can be pushed to about 30 MHs with some memory clock. Overclocking the GTX 1060 9Gbps helps a bit, but still that can push the performance to just about 19 MHs, so not that much better. Th Continue reading >>

Ethereum Mining Speed Gpu Comparison For Gtx1060 6gb

Ethereum Mining Speed Gpu Comparison For Gtx1060 6gb

The GTX1060 GPU is a significant upgrade from the past series of GeForce 900 series cards. However, when talking about mining, all of the listed specs for frames per second and number of monitors supported etc, doesnt mean much. What I can tell you is that for ethereum mining, the GTX1060 is not the fastest card out there, but it also isnt the most expensive. And when compared with power usage, the GTX1060 is actually pretty amazing for mining Ethereum! Original MSRP for the 1060 6GB cards was set at $249 USD, but as mining demand has increased, the price has risen and fallen inline with mining profitability. Currently, cards are selling for anywhere from $50-$100 USD above MSRP which sucks if you just want it for gaming sorry guys. Check out our Ethereum Mining GPU comparison below, or go to our main GPU comparison page to choose a different GPU series or different coin for mining. When the GTX 1060 graphics card was first released, it was touted as the most advanced GPU architecture ever created. According to the official NVidia site for the GTX1060 the card delivers up to 3 times more performance than the previous generation of cards (the 9xx series). For mining ethereum with the previous GTX 960, you could expect a hashrate of anywhere between 10 to 13 mH/s, and with the GTX1060 6GB cards, out of the box they can do 18-20 mH/s definitely an improvement! And, with overclocking, the 1060 series graphics card can manage up to 25 mH/s. While it isnt 3x the speed that NVidia is claiming when using the card for gaming, it is about double the speed of the previous generation of cards. After searching long and hard for ethereum hashrates and GPU prices, I created the ethereum mining gpu comparison chart. The system automatically checks price and inventory levels for the di Continue reading >>

Silent Ethereum Mining On EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 at 22 MH/s Silent Ethereum Mining On EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 at 22 MH/s Posted by Nathan Kirsch | Fri, Jun 16, 2017 - 10:25 AM If you cant find any AMD Radeon RX 480 and Radeon RX 580 video cards to purchase and dont want to pay more for the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card that is starting to become scarce on the market you might want to look at the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060. You can still find the GeForce GTX 1060 at retailersand they do pretty decent when it comes to miningEthereum. Earlier this week we showed you that the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Founders Edition had really good hashrate performance of around27 MH/s in stock form and then easily over 30 MH/s with the memory overclocked. Most GeForce GTX 1070 8GB graphics cards are over $400 , so today we are going to be looking at the lower cost GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card. This card in-stock for purchase at most retailers and prices start around $249.99 and depending on the model you should have a hashrate of around 18-19 MH/s. Once you overclock the memory you should be able to get the hashrate on the GTX 1060 up to around 22-23 on most cards. With six of these cards in a mining rig you are looking at roughly 135 MH/s for your $1,500-$2,000 investment in buying six GeForce GTX 1060 video cards. If you are lucky you might be able to hit 24 MH/s if you get some decent overclockers! We did some testing on the EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 FTW+ 6GB video card on Claymores Dual Ethereum AMD+NVIDIA GPU Miner v9.5and got some pretty interesting results that we wanted to share with you. This card is priced at $5.99 shipped , but it uses the same GPU cooler as the lower cost GeForce GTX 1060 6GB SSC gaming.

Getting A Maximum In Ethereum Mining On Nvidia Gtx 1060 In 2017

Getting a maximum in Ethereum mining on Nvidia GTX 1060 in 2017 If you dont want to pay more for the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card you might want to look at the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060. So today we are going to be looking at the lower cost GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card. This card in-stock for purchase at most retailers and prices start around 216 euro in Europe ($220 in US) for a 3GB version and 295 euro ($300 in US) for a 6GB version and depending on the model you should have a default hashrate of around 15-19 MH/s. Once you overclock the memory you should be able to get the hashrate on the GTX 1060 up to around 19-20 for the cards with 3GB and around 22-23 on most cards with 6GB. With six of these cards in a mining rig you are looking at roughly 117-135 MH/s for your 1300 - 1770 euro investment ($1320 - $1800 in US) in buying six GeForce GTX 1060 video cards. If you are lucky you might be able to hit up to 24 MH/s if you get some decent overclockers! We did some testing on the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 WINDFORCE OC 3GB video card on Claymores Dual Ethereum AMD+NVIDIA GPU Miner v9.8 and got some pretty interesting results that we wanted to share with you. We also used the EVGA Precision X OC utility for overclocking. This is the hashrate that we had by default without applying any overclocking: Below you can find the results that we had for memory overclocking. The temperature, fan speed and the power target were more or less the same: 68C (154 F), 46% for fan and 100% power target. Note that for the Estimated GPU power we just subtracted the overall power consumption at the wall outlet of the system at idle from the overall system power number while mining. We managed to overclock the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 cards memory up to +900MHz! Our hashrate mining Continue reading >>

Should I Mine Bitcoin Or Ethereum Using My Gtx 1060? Which Software Should I Use? - Updated 2017 - Quora

Should I Mine Bitcoin Or Ethereum Using My Gtx 1060? Which Software Should I Use? - Updated 2017 - Quora

Should I mine Bitcoin or Ethereum using my GTX 1060? Which software should I use? Over $20,000 in your IRA or 401k? Here's how to move to Bitcoin. Open a Bitcoin IRA now for massive growth potential on a tax-deferred basis. Get a free info guide now. Mining cryptocurrency with a GPU is like swatting gnats with a sledgehammer. One compute unit (CUDA core) from an AMD or NVidia GPU has well over a million transistors. So while having 1280 (GTX1060) or 4096 (Fury X) compute units on a GPU might seem phenomenally fast, the watts-per-compute unit (or the joules-per-hash) are going to be very high when compared to an extremely fine tuned device like the Antminer s9 which may have hundreds of thousands of extremely simple compute units. Yes, an Antminer uses 1375 watts, but it can process a thousand times any many bitcoins as a GPU. I think that a GTX 1060 is rated at somewhere near 23 GigaHashes per second while a new 16nm Antminer does maybe 13.5 TeraHashes per second. In other words you might make one penny every day (running 24/7) with a GPU or five dollars a day with an Antminer s9. Even for Ethereum, the 1060 is a terrible card for mining. A Fury X will be about three times faster and a (dual Fury X) Radeon Pro Duo at $1499 will be six times faster. Try it for a week just for fun, but dont expect to make money unless you get serious.

Nvidia Geforce Gtx 1060 Mining Performance Review

Nvidia Geforce Gtx 1060 Mining Performance Review

Its time to get to the meat of the review the hashrates. Sadly, the GTX 1060 3GB version does not work with Ethereum. As you probably know, 3GB GPUs cannot longer store the DAG file, which keeps growing in size with every new DAG epoch. There is no way around that, so in this article I will be reviewing the GTX 1060 3GB merely in the context of zCash mining. The GTX 1060 6GB features okay stock frequencies, but the real fun starts with overclocking. Compared to the GTX 1050Ti I reviewed before, the GTX 1060 has amazing overclocking potential. In this setup we are using Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 6GB on Claymores Dual Ethereum AMD+NVIDIA GPU Miner v9.6, EWBFs CUDA Zcash miner, Nvidia Optimised Ethminer and Nicehash. Ethereum hashrate on stock settings is 19 Mh/s with a power consumption of 100W. Cards working temperature is 68C (154.4 F). Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 6GB Mining Performance Stock Clocks Nvidia Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 6GB Ethereum Mining Stock Clocks Nvidia Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 6GB Ethereum Mining Stock Clocks Power Draw Nvidia Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 6GB GPU-z Samsung memory Nvidia Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 6GB GPU-z Sensors The card memory can be overclocked up to 4,700 MHz* (+925), which makes Ethereum hashrate reach the 23.7 25 Mh/s mark. While this will drive power consumption to 120 W, this will still make the card more profitable to mine, considering todays Ethereum price and mining difficulty, and electricity cost of $ 0.1 per KW/h. At this point, it is worth mentioning that the GTX 1060 fan does a great job by keeping the card at 56C with 65%. The card can be further overclocked up to 10 GHz which will result in better hashrate, but this proved to be unstable. (*) This can be achieved only by using the MSI Afterburner utility or similar.

Ethos + Nvidia Geforce Gtx 1060 6gb - Improve Performance !?

First of all I must specified at the beginning that I am a beginner in mining. Second, I have an rig made using ASUS Z270-P as motherboard, 16 GB RAM memory, as operating system I use ethOS, and as GPU I use 4 NVidia from Gigabyte (model 1060 - 6Gb). I use wallet made/create on MyEtherWallet and I mine Ethereum Classic (ETC). As pool I use nanopool.org. The actual performance related to my GPUs (GeForce GTX 1060 6Gb) are resume to 68.1 hash for all 4 GPUs. For this performance I dont change nothing on my default settings. But I want to change the GPUs performance only under-volt and overclock GPUs without using BIOS modded. So, the settings use for mine are: Have somebody any idea about what values I must to add in ethos for my GPUs (NVidia GeForce GTX 1060 6 Gb) to can under-volt my GPUs ? Current I use: But I dont know what values and how to reduce energy consumer for GPUs. I read that this type of GPUs can reach around of 23 Mh/s. Now I obtain only 20 GH/s ! Maybe the energy tune will increase hash and reduce energy consumed. I mine Ethereum Clasic, and I want to mine also Monero. I can use the same values of overclock for more currency ? I waiting with very higher interest any advice with feedback or idea. Continue reading >>

Gtx 1060 Review: Hashrate For Ethereum, Zcash, & More! (2018)

Gtx 1060 Review: Hashrate For Ethereum, Zcash, & More! (2018)

Unfortunately the 3GB version of the GTX 1060 is no longer able to mine Ethereum as it doesnt have enough dedicated VRAM. On the other hand, the 6GB is still going strong, yielding a handsome return on investment. Were going to be taking a look at the GTX 1060 hashrate of the 6GB model with both stock and overclocked frequencies. The GTX 1060 achieves a hashrate of around 19 MH/s at stock settings, drawing around 100 W from the wall. This yields a return of around $650 per year. Fortunately the overclocking potential of this card is phenomenal. Weve seen this card overclock all the way up to around 25 MH/s drawing 120 W from the wall. This power consumption/hashrate ratio yields an annual return of nearly $900. Check it out: Of course, there is better Ethereum mining hardware out there. The R9 295X2 yields nearly $1,500 a year! This card is also great for Zcash mining. Currently youll see a better return from Ethereum mining, but this is subject to change as prices fluctuate. The GTX 1060 proves itself once again when overclocked, hashing at 320 Sol/s and drawing **100 W from the wall with an 85% power limit. With the stock settings you can expect a hashrate just shy of 300, sitting at 295 Sol/s and drawing 130 W from the wall. $678 annually per card is pretty good considering the initial investment. Still, Ethereum mining is more profitable. You can increase your profits with a mining rig . With a handsome return on investment, this card isnt a bad choice for cryptocurrency mining. Although, there are better options out there. Wed only recommend using this GPU for mining if its already in your system at home. If youre looking to mine for serious profit, check out some of the hardware in the table below. A cryptocurrency mining rig is a great way to maximize your profi Continue reading >>

Geforce Gtx 1060 Mining: Overclocking And Testing

Geforce Gtx 1060 Mining: Overclocking And Testing

Geforce GTX 1060 Mining: Overclocking and Testing CUDA core: 1280 for 6 Gb GPU and 1024 for 3 Gb GPU. In this article we will test Nvidia GTX 1060 mining hashrate for various algorithms. Unfortunately, the 3 GB GPU version will be available for Ethereum production only until 2019. After that, 3 GB GPUs will not be able to store the growing ETH DAG-file. Therefore, we will test the 3 GB model only for Zcash (Equihash) mining. GTX 1060 6Gb stock settings and overclocking In March Nvidia introduced GeForce GTX 1080 Ti and announced 2 updates GeForce GTX 1060 with 9 Gbps and GeForce GTX 1080 with 11 Gbps. Two new GPUs with increased video memory attracted a lot of attention. GTX 1060 with 9 instead of 8 GHz GDDR5 looked quite promising also. Actually, we are talking about ASUS GeForce GTX 1060 OC 6GB 9Gbps which will be tested for mining. The GTX 1060 6Gb has a rather high run-off frequency, but the fun begins after the overclocking. Compared to GTX 1050 Ti, the GTX 1060 has an amazing overclocking potential. We use the BK Gigabyte Geforce GTX 6 Gb on a 2-core processor and miners: Claymore AMD + NVIDIA GPU Miner v9.6, EWBFs CUDA Zcash miner and Nvidia Optimized Ethminer and NiceHash. ETH hashrate amounted to 19 MHS / sec at a power consumption of 100W and GPU temperature at 68 degrees Celsius. We managed to overclock GPUs memory to 4700 Mhz (+925 Mhz) such overclocking can be achieved only with MSI Afterburner or similar, which raised ETH production hashrate up to 23.7-25 MHS / sec. At the same time, the power consumption increased to 120W. All this makes the Geforce GTX 1060 card one of the most profitable GPUs for mining, considering todays price, mining difficulty and electricity cost of 0.1 $ per kWh. At this stage, its worth mentioning that GTX 1060 cooling system ex Continue reading >>
