From the GeForce 2 all the way to modern times, GPU prices have always gone up. But now they've REALLY started to accelerate. Do you think the next generation will continue to be this expensive?
It wasn't THAT long ago that a brand spanking new GTX 980 TI, at the time of launch, could be had for $649.99 In fact, I'm not sure it's even been 5 years since that cards release. But everything changed with the bitcoin mining burst that came with the 10 series, rocketing prices to heights we'd never seen before. Now, that whole thing has mostly subsided but...prices have actually gone UP It's now over a thousand dollars for a current gen x80TI card and, in fact, I paid somewhere around 7 or 8 hundred for my regular RTX 2080 (not TI) which is more than the previous generations (not including the 10 series) charged for their TI models. Do you guys think we will ever see prices revert? Will we ever again see a 14 or 15 or whatever 80 TI launch at 650 ever again ?
With the Xbox One X (Scorpio) on the horizon I've heard a lot of talk about teraflops and how the One X will perform the same as a 1070 because they are close in terms of teraflops. I'm going to try and shed some light on the subject. First off, what is a teraflop? Well, it's a measure of floating point operations per second. Or in layman's terms "how fast a GPU can do math." So that means higher numbers are better, right? The higher the number the faster the device can add, subtract and multiply numbers. Well not exactly. Teraflops are really only a good measurement of performance if you're only running complex math and doing nothing else (think bitcoin mining or physics simulations). For example: The rx 480 has 5.8 Tflops and is a pretty capable GPU. However, the 980Ti only has 5.6 Tflops. Now wait a second. The 980Ti wrecks the 480 in any gaming benchmark. How come a GPU with a lower Teraflop rating can outperform one with a higher rating? To quote EuroGamer:
Teraflops are a very basic measure of computational power, separate and distinct from all other aspects of GPU design.
Teraflops really have very little to do with gaming performance, because there are lots of other things that impact gaming performance (vRAM bandwidth, cache, etc). In short, the Xbox One X probably won't perform on the same level as a 1070. The One X has 6 Tflops, but seeing how the 480/580 (which is very similar to the One X's GPU) stacks up against the 1070 we can't reasonably expect the One X to do much better. *Edit: Of course the Xbox isn't out yet, so have really have no idea on how it performs until it gets in the hands of Digital Foundry (or similar channel) who has the ability to analyze it's performance in. And just to touch on Forza, the only it was running at 1080p60 on the OG One was with the dynamic resolution and settings. I suspect that will be implemented on the One X with Forza 7.
Hello all, I know the controversy over cryptocurrency* mining and not being reliable but I'm not here to talk about that, I'm here to ask a couple questions about mining as a business. Now I say as a business because from my understanding that is what the ATO is going to classify the activity as.. A business. So some questions I have then are Do I need to register an ABN to mine? If so is it just as a sole trader? Which from my understanding the tax just gets included in my personal tax so I just need to be aware if/when I go into the next bracket Can I claim any expenses related to mining? I the cards and other hardware, electricity? And if I can claim these is there a guide on how much I can claim or what I will actually get from claiming? Building off the last question, if I leave the bitcoin as bitcoin and only sell to pay for electricity and any parts to further upgrade my farm do I need to pay tax on what was converted and then claim it back and do I get it back? Hopefully this makes sense and some of you can help with these points. I do want to do the right thing going through this but I want to cover everything so I'm not losing out on anything. Thank you! Edit: just to address the question of can you turn a profit in Australia at current rates: with 2 gtx 1080 ti cards the average power consumption is around 500 watts. Running at 24 hours per day you will pay roughly 150 per month in electricity. With thing rig you will mine between 500 - 650 per month using nice hash with an overclocked under powered setup on the cards. Obviously you can then scale it up to more cards or more rigs Edit 2: I've changed it from saying mining bitcoin to mining cryptocurrency to clarify that I'm not mining bitcoin. I'm mining using nicehash which pays out in bitcoin.
How long does it take grcpool to update magnitude?
I'm a newbie so please be gentle with me, and I apologise for any irrelevant information. I've ran SETI on and off since 2006, and since my son has been going on about Bitcoins, we both decided to mine Gridcoins just for the sake of it as we'd be running SETI anyway. After setting up the wallet, signing up to grcpool and figuring out how to get rid of the warnings that the project wasn't attached properly I left it running on two standard desktop PCs (AMD A4 APU with a Nvidia 650 GT, and an Intel G3258 with a Nvidia 1050 Ti) and a Raspberry Pi 3 (just because I could). Anyway, after running it for 16 hours the grcpool still says the magnitude is 0. The RAC for AMD is at 10.526872 and the Intel is 3.910567 (although it did spend half the time solo mining), but the magnitude and daily GRC is still zero. Could someone please tell me if this is normal or have I missed something? Thanks in advance for any replies :)
Machine crashes on first startup of the day after installation of GTX 1080 ti
So I upgraded from GTX 970 to GTX 1080 Ti. Whenever I start my gaming session for the day, the machine completely freezes after 5-15 minutes. This only happens when I put GPU under load with a game. If I start my PC-session by just youtube/websurfing it wont freeze until I start gaming. But if I after a an hour start a game, PC will crash after 5-15 minutes. No response from keyboard, reboot button wont work, nothing. Only solution is to hold power for 5 seconds to reboot machine. However, the machine NEVER freezes more than once in the same session. It's like the GTX 1080Ti has to warm up once before running stable. After the initial pc crash, it will never crash again. I played for 5 hours+ and nothing happened. When I turn the machine off for the day, and the same pattern repeats itself the next day. My GPU/CPU temperatures doesnt go to remarkable points. GPU at 79-80 and CPU to 50-60 degress c. What I've tried.
Upgrading latest drivers,
Latest windows updates,
Reinstalling windows 10, and repeat point 1 and 2.
Put GPU under load with bitcoin mining also crashed machine.
Read window critical crash logs, says nothing other than machine was turned of by power button.
Initially, I thought it would have somthing to do with my PSU, but since I can game endlessly after initial crash, my thoughts goes to a bad GPU? My machine contains:
You saw the title! HD6950 - $50 + shipping. Tested, works! Only personally used once in the last two weeks. This card was purchased by a friend of mine during the bitcoin mining craze, but he only used it for a short period of time due to cost issues. It sat in his office until two weeks ago when I bought it. R7 260X - $20 + shipping. Tested & NOT working. Not sure what's wrong with it, but I get no video signal at startup. Was purchased new in October of 2015 and only used until February. I would have RMA'd it but it's XFX and they wanted me to pay ~$60 in shipping to RMA. This could be an interesting project for someone with a soldering kit. GT 545 - $35 + shipping. Came from an Alienware Aurora R2 (I believe) It's kinda dirty, but it works fine. Could maybe use some love and new thermal paste. Your call. Prices are negotiable, especially if I can find a cheaper shipping service. Also willing to consider trades for each or all of the listed cards. I'm specifically looking for a new GPU. I'd be willing to trade all three cards for something along the lines of a R9 280, R9 380, GTX 680, 770, or 960. I'm also considering other trades. Just hit me up and we'll go from there. Timestamps For those who are curious, the 6950 and 260X perform similarly to a 750 ti. The GT 545 is in the same performance bracket as a GT 650 or R7 250. Source E: Sold.
I'm pretty new to Bitcoin (and mining) and I have no idea where to start mining or if it's even worth it. I have a computer that I don't really use that much with an Nvidea 650 Ti Boost and a 3.5 Ghz Intel i7. Would it be worth it for me to start mining? Edit: I don't have to pay for electricity
Hey all, after being into BitCoin for the last 18 months or so, I've decided to dump all that and join the fun that is Dogecoin! I'm just moving my bitcoins over to Doge, and hope to join in the tipping soon! Just lurking in /dogecoin has been awesome, and it looks like this currency has a fantastic community that I'd like to be a part of! I'm using a GTX 780 and a GTX 650 Ti Boost, and getting something like 750 khash/s combined. Very mining, much happy! Best part is, I can't get my old Radeon 6670 to mine at all.. ha ha ha. Anyway, that's it, just wanted to say hi! Happy Doge-ing!
I love the light-heartedness behind the whole dogecoin movement, so decided to give it a shot. (I missed out on the whole bitcoin thing when it started, and it far too prohibitive to get into solo now.) I am following the "howtodoge.com" instructions, and have been synching all afternoon. I was wondering if there was a kW/hour estimate of how much power it took to mine dogecoin? I have a GTX 650 Ti BOOST video card on socket 1150 motherboard, and have no idea if I should even attempt to mine. Any help/info would be greatly appreciated!
My friend got into BitCoin mining awhile back and thought I'd jump in and play around a bit (no pun intended). He had me download the BitMinter Client which gave me the below stats: CPU: Core i7 3770K GPU: GeForce GTX 650 Ti After setting up a profile and clicking "Engine Start" I have generated 403 Proofs-of-work, 28 Rejected, and started work on 573 Blocks in 11hrs.

Is this set-up at all effective?

What kind of increases might I expect in my Electricity bill if I leave the rig running constantly? (Currently looks like I am paying about 0.13 per KWh.)
GPU fan running 100% for no apparent reason, please help.
I have been battling this for some time now. The GPU fan nearly always runs at what seems like 100%, (GPU-Z says ~5300 rpm). It sounds like a friggin jet engine and I'm sure it will reduce the time before failure. It runs like this even at ~30 degrees celsius. I tried to pull off the back case to clean the fins, but it will separate the heat sink from the chip and I don't know that I could put it back together properly. Based on looking in the sides it does not appear dusty/dirty at all. Sometimes it will turn the fan speed down randomly, but for the past 2 days it has been full-out without changing. When it was working right it would increase fan speed based on temp like it should, and reduce speed when I stopped gaming and/or the temp dropped. I did have a bitcoin mining malware that I believe I was able to remove using this: http://www.tomshardware.com/faq/id-1691891/removing-malware-proven-completely-remove-bitcoin-mining-malware.html Drivers are up-to-date, version 337.88 released 5/26/14. It's an EVGA Nvidia Geforce GTX 650 TI Boost card. I'm going to try and take it apart to make sure it is not clogged with dust somewhere i cannot see, hopefully it doesnt break it. I will post any more info on the computer as it is requested, I've been building my computers for nearly 20 years and everything else should be fine. Any ideas? And thanks in advance. couple screenshots http://imgur.com/D4w696khttp://imgur.com/jehLyyx
GTX 1070 Ti Mining Review Summary: It may be too early to tell. The GTX 1070 Ti hashrate doesn’t blow the other cards out of the water, but it does seem to show some equihash mining speed improvements over the 1070, and some efficiency improvements over the 1080. But it may be too early to come to a final conclusion. The pace at which good things happen on Ethereum is accelerating: - The amount locked in defi is booming - Scaling through Plasma is actually happening right now - Scalability under its rollups form is already here on eth 1 and allows more than 3,000 tps (more than VISA) - Despite the delays, eth 2 is undeniably happening - EIP 1559 will most likely be implemented and will significantly reduce I've always had free power for my mining career and never had to worry about the power cost. I have a Rig with 2 RX 570 that I plan on upgrading asap. Right now with my mining calculator sites with this rig it will make a 15 to 20 cent profit a day. So in your opinion should I even consider mining with my power cost of 11 cents per kwh? Gigabyte RTX 2080 Ti ProgPow Mining Hashrate Performance & Power Consumption. Hashrate 26.5 Mh/s.
