Last year, the huge popularity of cryptocurrencies especially Bitcoin led to people mining these digital coins with powerful GPUs. Here, we will tell you about those GPUs that can be used to mine cryptocurrencies.
The current price of Bitcoin is more than $7000. Even if you are able to mine one Bitcoin from the GPU tower of ASA Computers, you can recover the initial cost of that graphics card.
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070
Gamers and miners are definitely aware of this powerful graphics card. The mining capacity of this GPU is due to its high hash rate of about 30 MH/s. At the same time, it is also not a “power eating beast”.
High power demands more electricity usage which increases the bills. This reduces the profits you get for mining digital coins.
Like other Nvidia graphics cards, the GTX 1070 is also expensive. The initial price may be high but you can recover that cost in the long run. Apart from that, it is also one of the best gaming GPUs. So, in the spare time, you can play games as well.
AMD Radeon RX 580
This is also one of the best graphics cards for mining. It is so popular that sometimes the demand exceeds the supply and there is a shortage.
While minimizing the electricity consumption, the AMD Radeon RX 580 provides a hash rate of 30 MH/s. Moreover, it is also less expensive than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070. With a few tweakings, you can make the most out of this graphics card.
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060
This graphics card is an alternative to the AMD Radeon RX 480. The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 is not so expensive as compared to other graphics cards in this series.
The mining results are excellent and it is also a popular choice for gamers that are on a little lower budget. However, like the AMD Radeon RX 580, it can be difficult to find.
AMD Radeon RX Vega
If you are looking for a value-packed GPU, then you can opt for the AMD Radeon RX Vega 56. It is cheaper and faster than the Nvidia GTX 1070.
However, the downside is that it has a high power consumption which means running your rig for long hours can be heavy on the pocket. Still, it is worth buying since it has a good mining performance.
Like some other graphics cards, you will have a hard time finding this GPU. If you search long enough maybe you might find it somewhere on a sale as well.
The key to making effective use of GPUs for mining is discovering the right tweaking methods.
ASA Computers has a variety of GPU towers to meet the growing demands of users.
