New video cards by Nvidia can displace ASIC equipment from the mining industry.
2018-09-21 in MINING

Recently, Nvidia has lifted the restriction on the release of reviews of a new series of videocards RTX 20.

The new videocards Nvidia RTX 2070, 2080 and 2080Ti have become the object of serious disputes since the announcement of their release. Despite the impressive characteristics, ray tracing technology and supersampling, the performance of new maps in real tests was far from stellar. At the same time, the price is several hundred dollars higher than price tags for cards of previous models. This thesis is valid only from the point of view of the game industry, but the new cards may be very interesting for miners.

According to preliminary data, the top version of the RTX 2080 Ti will be six times more powerful than the previous generation of videocards. And the overclocked RTX 2070 will be able to deliver up to 85 MH / s. For comparison: RX Vega 56 Block Chain Drv gives only 36.5 MH / s.

Also a new line of video cards calls into question the profitability of ASIC-equipment. So, Bitmain devices for Ethereum mining are accelerated to 190 MH / s at a price of $ 1260 per unit. RTX 2080 Ti will cost $ 1200, and the youngest model RTX 2080 is only $ 800.

In terms of prices, the graphic card market returns to its normal state after an annual increase, so the top cards of the RTX 20 series can be a very tempting acquisition for miners. First, new videocards will set a completely new level of hash in the segment of GPU-miners, and secondly – over time, the video card can be easily resold to gamers in contrast to the ASIC-devices.
