The Best Graphic Cards for Crypto Mining

*Numbers updated on January 12, 2018

Hey there! Hope your crypto mining operations or preparations are doing fine!

I’ve just updated my mining hardware data on this website as I’ve added another RX 470 to my mining rig, so I’ve decided to write something useful while I’m here.

This post has a purpose of showing you the best GPUs for mining at the moment.

There are 3 main concerns when choosing the best GPU for mining:

  • Mining power

    How fast the GPU can work, aka how much money it can make.

  • GPU Power Consumption

    Very important factor which must be taken into consideration, unless you somehow have free or very cheap power.

  • GPU Price

    Quite obvious one- if you have 2 GPUs with the same mining power, quality and power consumption, but different price- you’re better of with the cheaper one.

Do your own homework

and a disclaimer

When gathering the above data I’ve used prices from Amazon so I can give you a more overall picture of the best GPUs for mining. Depending on your research skills and the country you live in, you may get different(cheaper or pricier) results. Of course, you should put some effort in finding the best deal possible, as that will make your ROI and the overall business better.

When gathering the above data, I’ve used the official power consumption specs from the power manufacturers. And that’s pretty much the highest power consumption possible. Mining is usually power expensive, but not all mining algorithms and mining tools are producing the same power draws. Also, you can overclock or underclock your GPU and get different power results.

When gathering the above data, I’ve used mining calculator from Nicehash to get GPU mining earnings. I did my math and figured that the best and easiest way for me to mine is through NiceHash. This doesn’t mean you can’t find better deals for yourself, so you should invest some time in research and testing of mining pools.
