How Much Were Gtx 1070s Before The Cryptocurrency Craze

How much were gtx 1070s before the cryptocurrency craze

The GXT 1070 is indeed a great card to have for any gamer.

How much were gtx 1070s before the cryptocurrency craze

It outperforms the GTX 980Ti up to three times in some aspects! That being said, how good is it for mining?

In this article I’m going to review the GeForce GTX 1070 and how it performs using different overclocking configurations, as well as I’ll compare their stats depending on the manufacturer.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 Specs

  • GPU Architecture: Pascal
  • Frame Buffer: 8 GB GDDR5
  • Memory Speed: 8 Gbps
  • Boost Clock – Relative: 1.4x
  • Boost Clock – Actual: 1683 MHz

GTX 1070 Mining Hashrate Review

Here I will be posting the best hashrates and the clocks that have been used to achieve those.

Please keep in mind that those numbers are mostly for reference purposes; it is also worth mentioning that hashrate varies depending on the batch too.

However, if you have the chance to choose, then you might want to know that Samsung memory chips are superior to Micron when it comes to overclocking limit and stability.

The difference however is rather subtle.

GTX 1070s – Which One to Buy?

With so many GTX 1070 releases, which one is the best for mining? While there is no definitive answer, as well as most GTX 1070’s were already sold out so we don’t really have any choice when it comes to the manufacturer, here is some information that you might find useful:

Gigabyte – Users complain that GigabyteGTX 1070s have the weakest fans compared to their competitors’, but for me the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 G1 Gaming is great because of 3 fans and stays really cool.

Nvidia Founders Edition – While FE GPUs usually have great stability and output above-average hashrate, their fans stand among the noisiest ones too.

ASUS Strix – The Strix is probably the most sought-after release; it is expensive, but in exchange for the elevated price tag you get great hashrate and quiet, durable fans.

Zotac 1070 AMP – It features great hashrate and two coolers – several users stated that the AMP works great for them.

GTX 1070 Laptop Edition

Several people have been asking whether they could use their high-tier gaming laptops with GTX 1070 GPUs for mining.

Personally I wouldn’t recommend using a laptop for that – if something happens to your GPU you lose the whole laptop because you cannot simply swap the broken GPU with a new one.

However, if you’re aware of the risks and want to try it nevertheless, then you will more likely be able to achieve decent hashrate.

The best results I found so far were with the following settings:

Setup #1: ETH: 25.8 MH
  • Core Clock: 1657 MHz
  • Memo Clock: 3802 MHz
  • Power Draw: 147 W
Setup #2: ETH:30.1mh/
  • Core Clock: +150 MHz
  • Memo Clock: +700 MHz
  • Temperature: ~80°C at full fan speed

However, the fact that you cannot reduce power target on laptop GPUs make the temperature go to ~80°C, which is rather harmful for the device.

Warning: Flashing your laptop with custom BIOS that allows you to change GPU power target will more likely brick it and render the laptop unusable!

Nvidia RTX Graphics Cards Good for Mining? Nvidia RTX 2070 GPU Mining Hashrates Review

Are You Serious?!

Some people get their brand new GTX 1070’s, install the latest Nvidia drivers and all the required miner software just to get 2.5 MH/s on ETH. If you find yourself in the same situation, there is an easy fix to that.

And no, this usually does not mean that you’ve got a faulty card. The issue is in your OS.

So far, the only people who faced this problem are those who use Windows 10.

There are two ways of solving the problem: (a) by switching to Ubuntu Linux or (b) by upgrading your Windows 10 to v1703, which proved to work stable for mining.

In Conclusion

  • Power Consumption
  • Cooling
  • Price

Summary

Are the GTX 1070s worth it?

Yes, they definitively are.

In my opinion, even though the mining craze made those cards rise in price, they are still a great investment that can be used both for mining and gaming. Once you find that mining is not profitable, you can re-sell the card to a gamer.

The GTX 1070s are great gaming cards and they will remain sought-after by gamers for a while.
