As you know, for consumer bitcoin, consumer video cards have not been suitable for a long time, but for the production of other crypts, as the recent situation with the deficit of the latest models showed, they are very suitable. Immediately after the announcement of the first consumer graphic card NVIDIA Titan V generation Volta, many began to wonder about the potential of the new graphics architecture manufacturer in the mining. And now everyone has a question that the new graphic card NVIDIA Titan V is worth for mining crypto currency? Let’s discover!
The performance tests of NVIDIA Titan V itself in the software for mining various crypto-currencies, includes unpacking, installation in a PC and other preparatory procedures, you will find at the link at the bottom of the note. Note that the mine begins at 25:00. However, anyone can find in the description of the video a list where all the key actions are timed. There you can find complete information about the system configuration used by the BBT Carter command for tests.
We only note that judging by these first tests, the performance of the non-overclocked NVIDIA Titan V in the production of the Ethereum crypto currency is about 70 MH / s “in sleep mode” with the system consuming 213 W and 50% of the peak TDP video card. This is about double the indicator of AMD Radeon RX Vega 64, which produces about 43 MH / s at a higher power consumption. At Zcash production, the performance reached 754 SOL with an overall system power consumption of 229 watts. At the same Montero crypto currency, for which it will soon be possible to buy music in a number of stores, the card allows producing with a capacity of 1224 H / s with a total power consumption of 155 watts. For lbryCoin and Vertcoin, the figures are 687 MH / s and 88.7 MH / s, respectively.
With the increased operating frequency of the NVIDIA Titan V, the Ethereum and Monero production rates jumped to 77 MH / s and 1418 H / s, respectively.
In dual production Ethereum and Decred, the card provides a performance of 66 MH / s / 2219 MH / s with a total power consumption of 288 watts.
A complete round of cryptocurrency mining performance tests confirms that the GTX TITAN V doubles the results achieved by the Radeon RX Vega 64 in Ethereum, one of the most popular digital currencies of the moment.
Taking a look at the results of the tests performed in the accompanying video we see that the NVIDIA graphics solution reaches 77 MH / s with a 75 MHz overclock in the GPU, 130 MHz in memory and 65% consumption limitation (213 watts in Ethereum ).
Thanks to this configuration the GTX TITAN V doubles to a Radeon RX Vega 64 (around 40 MH / s with overclocking), but also achieves it while maintaining a lower consumption than that, which means greater efficiency and a greater profit margin higher derived from the lower energy expenditure.
We can confirm that the new top of the range of NVIDIA for the graphic sector is a real beast mining cryptocurrencies and that its operation is quite efficient, but it has a serious problem and that its price is prohibitive.
Each card has a cost of $ 2,999 and keeping it running on a 24/7 basis to mine cryptocurrencies can significantly shorten its useful life, which is a significant risk that we do not believe anyone is willing to assume. In the table that we accompany you can see a summary of the results obtained by the GTX TITAN V mining different crypto currencies and the maximum consumption when performing the overclock that we mentioned in previous paragraphs.
And if NVIDIA Titan V, in view of its high cost ($ 3000), probably will not interest miners, then more affordable gaming models, unfortunately for gamers, may well like crypto-engineers.
