Why is no one mining on GTX 1060 3GB? I'm getting 23 Mh/s from one oc'ed card

    all my cards have a -200 core clock, that's much better. Power at 75%. Memory clock varies from card to card (I have different manufacturers. Result:


    Hashrate in average is between 23-24MH/s
  • techtottechtot Member Posts: 339 ✭✭✭
    are you setting the core to positive 200 or negative 200. I have never seen a 3gb model get 23mh/s
    whats the power draw ?
  • KlintistwoodKlintistwood Member Posts: 142
    @techtot Core clock is set to -200 (negative). Power draw is set to 75W, the whole rig is between 800 and 900W. Less than 800 if I mine ZEC or XMR.

    @Klintistwood How many 1060 cards do you have ? Are they all 3gb? I will have to do some negative core testing..
  • atlratlr Member Posts: 18
    With my card, -200 core just drops from 100 W to 97 W.

    atlr' settings (October, 2017)
    • MSI Gaming X GTX 1060 3 GB, Windows 10
    • Afterburner settings: power limit 50%, core clock +140 (1847 MHz ), memory clock +1000 (9.6 GHz)
    • HWiNFO GPU Power 100 W, 54 C, fan 67%, 25 C ambient
    • ETH 25.0 MH/s, SC 250 MH/s with Claymore's v10.0 dual miner

    @atlr - how are you getting 25mh out of 1060 3gb? That seems too good to be true. Is it stable @1000mhz memory clock boost?
  • atlratlr Member Posts: 18
    25 Mh/s is what results from the settings I documented. Yes, +1000 is stable with this card. The Gaming X series does a good job cooling the memory.
  • KlintistwoodKlintistwood Member Posts: 142
    @techtot I have 10 GTX 1060 (3 models, 2 manufacturers)

    I have some cards stable at +1600Mhz, the lower performing ones are at +1100Mhz, temps are between 45 and 55°C. Fan speed is 50% for all cards.

    @atlr you have a power limit of 50% but you're still at 100W ? My power limit brings cards to 75W
  • atlratlr Member Posts: 18
    @Klintistwood yup. If I set a 75% power limit in afterburner, power usage increases to 126 W for my card. Looks like you have a sweet rig.
  • KlintistwoodKlintistwood Member Posts: 142
    @atlr yes but I don't reach 25MH/s like you, I'm going to try your params this week-end

    rx580 dual mines at eth 31.3mh/s sia 600mh/s, way better than any nvidia card
  • techtottechtot Member Posts: 339 ✭✭✭
    @nitroplusexpert - the gtx 1070 can do 31 mh/s with less power. Just wait till the TI's ship next week . Most likely 40Mh/s.

    My 1070 mines at 29.5MH/s drawing only 100W at the wall. My 580s mine at 31MH/s at 150W at the wall. For the 580 to mine as efficient as my 1070 it'd need to run 44.25 MH/s at 150W.

    I really doubt any Polaris card can come close to the efficiency of the 1000 series cards (unless you won the silicon lottery and can extremely undervolt).

    What card does what MH/s seems to be becoming not too meaningful now that payouts have dropped and GPUs drastically increased in price. The only reason to buy a new GPU for mining now is for speculative investing. You certainly do not want to buy a new GPU to generate fiat cashflow these days. Net cash from GTX 1060 using nicehash is about a US$1/day and ... what ... about US$1.20 per day from a GTX 1070 or RX 580.

    @atlr I coulnd't find time to try :( I'll try again next week. Thanks!

    RX580 is the most efficient mining card, you just need to undervolt it rofl. I draw under 100 from the wall for each card so 580 is WAYYYYYYY more efficient and when you consider dual mining it is not even close.

    Got a video proving these wattage claims?

    @ecs87
    100watts on a 1070 is really good can u possibly post a pic to show me that?
    i have a few friends using them and theyre pretty much about 150watts lowest per card
    other than the fact they cost 2x as much as 570/580s i didnt grab any for that reason
    i would still like to diversify my GPUs a bit cuz i got 63 amd and 0 nvidia
    so if ur getting that then i might try trading for a 1070 rig

    @cidmo Sure. My desktop uses about 50-60W (the i5-6600K doesn't quite sip on power), so add in ~100W from the 1070 and that's the total usage from the kill-a-watt. Don't mind the max power of 113W; I mine and game on this card (when gaming the core clock goes up as does the power). I'd probably be using 150W if I didn't underclock the core and limit the power :)

    @ecs87
    thx man maybe i might order some
    but ima try and trade someone for a couple amd rigs
    100 watts at around 31Mh is right around vega levels but can do equihash much better
    thats my main concern if bitcoin gold actually becomes a thing

    Last post I see is on Nov 2017. with ETH prices going up, I cant find any RX580's in stock. Most of my rigs are GTX 1060's and they're doing just fine averaging about 23-24 mh/s. so a rig of 6 GTX1060s plus system consumption is about 475W. I do have a rig of 6 RX580's at 29.2 mh/s per card and that rig is consuming about 900w... so without even making any calculations the Nvidia cards are more efficient.
    However, I bought some GTX 1060 Zotac cards because they were cheaper and had Samsung VRAMs. At stock would only mine at 15 MH/s, OC'd RAM... mine at 19 MH/s. then I got some Evga GTX 1060 with Micron memory and they mine at 23MH/s... I'm tempted to open up one of the zotac cards to check if they really are using Samsung ram, swap them rams over to the evga cards... Anyway, going back to the title of this thread, yes people are mining with GTX1060's!!!

    So I have been trying to figure this out, but can't find a definitive answer, though there are a lot of signs saying that the 1060 3gb is not being sought out anymore. I have been looking high and low, for any AMD card that is doing at least 20mh, but have had no luck at a reasonable price. But today I saw quite a stack of 1060 3gb at Frys, and I am still wondering whether I should get them or not. If I can't use them for at least 1 year, then the investment will not be worth it. But if I can put in at least one year, and then re-purpose them, that would still be worth it. Can someone confirm that these should be able to last another year?
  • KlintistwoodKlintistwood Member Posts: 142
    There are many other coins you could mine with 3Gb version and there is still room for ETH as well. If you can get 3Gb version at a good price, take them because prices are rising everyone. I bought my last ones a couple of weeks ago for 170€ and the same ones are around 250 today.

    I call BS on this claim. You are not drawing 100 watt from the wall with a 580 @ 31.3 mh/s. I have eighteen RX580 cards @ 31.6 mh/s each and they are closer to 140-150 watts at the wall. HWinfo will show two watt readings, you have to combine them.

    Test your rig output at the wall and come back with screenshots. In my rigs six RX580 cards are drawing around 910-920 watts at the wall. These have been optimized to hell and if they were drawing 100 watts the reading should be a little over 650 watts because their power supplies are only powering the six cards and 5 case fans. The CPU and System RAM is powered by another set of power supplies. Yes the power supplies (gold rated) are wasting some power. The cards and fans are drawing around 865 watts per UPS reading but at the wall the reading is 920 watts.

    My 1070 ti cards are more powerful and efficient than the RX580 cards. Each 1070 ti is around 32.5 mh/s and drawing around 100 watts. Total power usage for seven 1070 ti cards @ 32.5 mh/s each, 8 GB DDR4, Intel Core 2 CPU and 5 case fans is around 900 watts at the wall. Less than six RX580 cards by themselves!

    Our business have 1070 cards and they are very close to the 1070 ti cards if not identical in performance / efficiency.

    People like you spread disinformation about the power usage of these cards. I have seen this many times before. The RX580 cards are good Ethereum performers but not the most efficient or powerful. Even my 1080 ti is more efficient than a RX580! It hashes at 38-39 mh/s drawing 140-150 watts!

    if you didn't buy 'em , I bet you wish you would have now..they are going for $300 + if you can find them. I don't get the problem w/them either. They are good until 2019 now until the DAG hits 3GB. https://investoon.com/tools/dag_size
