    curious to hear how many runs some mining rig here?

    I also started mining recently with NiceHash.

    3060ti on my main rig pulling ~60MH/s
    have an old computer with 1 PCI-E 16x and 2 PCIE 1x, currently have a 1060 pulling ~22MH/s, hoping to get another 1060 in the next couple of days while waiting for my 3060ti pre-orders.

    not looking to run a 6-12 gpu rigs, doing this mostly as side hobby with my dad since he's the one into cryptocurrency unless he wants to mine more

    Sell me one of the 3060 pre-orders

    I've read nice hash is easy to use and is the common go to, also you can probably lower the power on the cards and still be stable

    will let you know once I have enough 3060ti and will post on the PC build thread once I hear more 3060tis have come in stock.

    I have tuned the vcards with MSI afterburner.
    my 3060ti stock was doing 50MHs at 170W, got it down to 60MH at 135W.
    same thing with the 1060, it was originally doing 19MH at 140W, got it down to 22MH at 90W.

    Just set up Nicehash a couple of days ago. Getting 57MH/s with a 3070 @ 54% power limit and +1100 memory. Card sits nicely at 50C with auto fan and pulls 129w. Getting bitdefender to play nice with Nicehash was a nightmare though.

    nice, I have my power limit currently set to 70%, -500 core and +1200 core. going to try lower it to 65% as it has been pretty stable. my temp is around 54C

    27MH/s on my 1070.
    90MH/s on my 3080.

    can mods maybe move the mining discussions to a new computer thread?

    makes sense why 60s vcards are the best bang for buck in terms of hashrate
    3060ti - 600$ for 60MH
    3080 - 1200$ for 90MH

    bought the 1060s for around 200$ and getting 22MH

    wouldnt mind upgrading my gaming rig to 3070 though.

    dont follow much AMD but heard 5700XT has some decent hashrate too.

    So are the mining calculators actually reflective of what you could get today with your card.

    For instance Betterhash says my card (a RTX 2060 Super) can achieve a has rate of 36MH/s and mine around $160 USD per month at todays rate. Seems unbelievable.

    How much are you guys generating in a 24 hour / monthly amount?

    that's the sad thing right now, it is scalpers dream market
    wish i picked up a 3060ti back in december from a scalper for 650$ now.
    even the Eagle OC that I bought in December for under 600$ is upt o around 640$ at Memex.

    with increasing difficulties, your hashrate will remain the same but you might be earning less eventually.
    thought about buying a rig with 3700x + 3060ti for 1900$ at Newegg but didnt want to deal with hassle of selling the rig just for the video card lol.

    I am currently generating about 13CAD$ in BTC per day with 2 cards. will be up to around 16CAD$ once I get my 2nd 1060.
    my expense so far is 2 riser cards, a 1000W PSU and 2 1060s which I'll recuperate the cost in less than 6 months.

    overall pretty fun hobby to do while WFH and with cold temperature I sleep easy knowing the cards are not going to overheat haha

    As with all mining the hash difficulty rises quite quickly. If you make 5$ a day today you'll be making 3$ a day 6 months from now. Still profitable but just be weary it you are going in the deep end.

    Plus Eth2 is on the horizon and will wipe away GPU mining from profitability for good. More GPUs mine eth than all the other coins combined so when they shift it'll crush the mining market

    Its proof of stake rather than proof of work.

    I wonder how much energy could be saved in the world if BTC was proof of stake.

    One article said the cost to send 1 bitcoin is equivalent to the energy to power a bit over one household for a day. So roughly 1 million households worth of energy per day is spent on mining hardware just crunching imaginary numbers trying to race each other.

    Proof of work was a great concept at the time when it was just using idle computers to keep the network afloat but no one predicted how it would create an entire industry with ASICs taking over. The fact that Bitmain is worth ~50+ billion dollars and all they do is still mining hardware is absolute insanity. Bitmain's S19 are supposedly the first chips made with 5nm process. To put that in perspective that means they are a full process node ahead of AMD and 2 process nodes ahead of Intel.

    S19 uses 7nm.

    Do they? I know they don't officially say so I used this article which claimed 5nm but its unconfirmed though it might just be the S19 PRO that is on 5nm

    nicehash has been a pain in the but lately with so many outages on their website.

    what does everyone here use to mine ETH?
