I am planing to make a farming rig and i am from Croatia. As farming is at full swing it was SUPER SUPER hard to find some good GPU-s. In Croatia is not so easy to get cards, it's low supply and we dont have our own Amazon or ebay and such so w8ting for new cards if i order them (AMD) is practicaly impossible. I could only use some of nvidia models and i managed to find this one in the title.
I cannot find any info about this Asus GPU, i have feeling it's a good model, Asus is good manufacturer and it's also gtx 1070 which i read is good for farming, both ethereum and zcash and i seen ppl pushing them to 37 or so MH/s
I already ordered 3 and i will order another 3. What you guys think about this GPU-s? Did i made terrible mistake or will those GPU-s do just fine?
Here is link for card also if anyone is wondering - https://asus.com/Graphics-Cards/DUAL-GTX1070-O8G/
I actualy compared this one with Gigabyte Windforce OC 8GB, then with Asus GTX1070FI, Asus TurboGTX1070 and it has best clock
OC Mode - GPU Boost Clock : 1797 MHz , GPU Base Clock : 1607 MHz
Gaming Mode (Default) - GPU Boost Clock : 1771 MHz , GPU Base Clock : 1582 MHz
Others are on:
GPU Boost Clock : 1683 MHz
GPU Base Clock : 1506 MHz
And Windforce OC is at:
Boost: 1771 MHz/ Base: 1582 MHz in OC Mode
Boost: 1746 MHz/ Base: 1556 MHz in Gaming Mode
This is still slightly slower then Asus GTX Dual series OC 8GB
GeForce® GTX 1070 GAMING X 8G from MSI is same as Asus GTX 1070 OC 8GB GDDR5 with clocking, but i noticed when in OC mode memory clock from MSI one is 8108 MHz, so MSI might beat this one slightly.
I kinda answered my own question maybe with comparisons, but not sure is there some problems with seting up rig or smth with this cards so hashrate could be low. Anyway let me know what u think. Cheers!
Please help & Thank you !
