What graphics card do you use to mine bitcoin? Is GTX 1080 Ti suitable for mining Bitcoin?

2022-09-28 10:43

Compared to the past few years, the price of digital currencies has risen several times. With the explosive growth of digital currencies in recent years, there has been a serious premium in the price of graphics cards, which has also greatly affected the income of mining investors.

Recently, as the price of cryptocurrencies has dropped, so has the price of graphics cards, which may be the best time for miners to start mining with graphics cards. If you want to get higher returns through mining, you should invest in graphics cards with higher performance, which should be the consensus of all miners. So is the GTX 1080 Ti suitable for mining Bitcoin?

What level of graphics card is the GTX 1080 Ti?

The GTX 1080 Ti was released on March 10, 2017. Median power consumption is 220.0W. The current market price is $559.00, which is the flagship discrete graphics card of the previous generation, and of course an absolute high-end discrete graphics card.

The GTX 1080 Ti uses the same GP102 core as the TITAN X, but the core has been slightly reduced, and the video memory bit width is reduced to 352bit (TITAN X is 384bit), so the video memory is correspondingly changed to 11GB GDDR5X, 11GB such Singular numbers are relatively rare in previous generations of graphics cards. In addition, the number of ROPs castrated has become 88 (TITAN X is 96).

The size of NVIDIA GTX 1080 Ti is 280×98×40mm, which is very close to the size of mainstream three-fan graphics card. The biggest difference between GTX 1080 Ti and TITAN X and GTX1080 is definitely in the I/O interface. GTX 1080 Ti has one less DVI-D interface than the latter two. NVIDIA says this is to make room for a newly designed heatsink for better cooling.

Is GTX 1080 Ti suitable for mining cryptocurrency?

After Bitcoin, some other digital assets emerged one after another, such as Ethereum, Dash, Litecoin, etc. Some of these cryptocurrencies use different algorithms from Bitcoin. After testing, people found that other algorithms such as Scrypt are most efficient in mining with graphics cards, so many mining investors began to use graphics cards for mining.

The data shows that the Nvidia GTX 1080Ti can achieve a hash rate of 45.68 MH/s and a power consumption of 210 W for mining ETH (Ethash), and the computing power is equivalent to the AMD RX5600XT. In terms of hash rate alone, GTX 1080 Ti mining is still very valuable, but compared to AMD RX5600XT, GTX 1080 Ti mining consumes twice as much power.

The power consumption of GTX 1080 Ti mining is 210W, which directly reduces the computing power per watt in half. The advantages of GTX 1080 Ti are that the video memory is wide and high (352bit) and the video memory capacity is large (11G), but it is not suitable for mining. If some mining investors can get free power resources, they can consider purchasing GTX 1080 Ti for mining.

From the point of view of ROI, if electricity costs are included, GTX 1080 Ti mining will not be able to make ends meet. If mining investors want to mine with a graphics card, the GTX 1080 Ti is not suitable. Generally speaking, it is better to use GTX1060 6G or GTX1070 for energy efficiency. For mining, GTX 1080 Ti mining is obviously not the best choice.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q1:Is the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti good for mining?

A1:The data shows that the Nvidia GTX 1080Ti can achieve a hashrate of 45.68 MH/s and a power consumption of 210 W. From the point of view of ROI, if electricity costs are included, GTX 1080 Ti mining will not be able to make ends meet. If mining investors want to mine with a graphics card, the GTX 1080 Ti is not suitable.

Q2:What can a GTX 1080 mine?

A2:The GTX 1080 Ti can be used to mine all cryptocurrencies using the Ethash algorithm, but from the perspective of revenue, it is not recommended to use the GTX 1080 Ti for mining.

Q3:How much can I make mining with a GTX 1080?

A3:The GTX 1080 Ti is undoubtedly a high-end graphics card, but it is not suitable for mining. Since the main performance of the GTX 1080 Ti is reflected in the game screen and so on, if it is used to mine cryptocurrency, the GTX 1080 Ti will not be able to make money.

Q4:Is GTX 1080 Ti still relevant?

A4:Even though the GTX 1080 Ti has been released for many years, it is still a fairly competitive graphics card in terms of its performance, if you want to buy a high-end graphics card to play games, then the GTX 1080 Ti will be a good one choose.

Q5:Which is better RTX 2060 or GTX 1080 Ti?

A5:RTX2060 is the next-generation version of GTX1060 6G. From the comparison of parameters, the core frequency of GTX 1080 Ti is 1480MHz, which is higher than that of RTX2060; the memory capacity of GTX 1080 Ti is 11GB, which is more than that of RTX2060; the memory bit width of GTX 1080 Ti It is 352bit, which is higher than RTX2060.

On the whole, compared with RTX2060 and GTX 1080 Ti, GTX 1080 Ti has better core frequency, more memory capacity and higher memory bit width.
