The Best 5 GPUs to mine Bitcoin Gold

Before starting, we must mention that there are a number of variables, configurations and memory chips involved, on which we have based to give an average of the best 05 GPUs (Graphical Processing Units) for Bitcoin Gold mining (BTG ).

To be able to do the study, we must first understand what algorithm Bitcoin Gold uses and why it is used. As is known to many, Bitcoin Gold uses the Equihash algorithm.

This code was well researched and the Bitcoin Gold team thought about the use of the Equihash model in the long term. This model was designed to resist the ASIC circuits.

The reason is that Equihash is a memory-oriented work test (PoW – Proof of Work), which means that it requires a considerable amount of RAM, and RAM is very expensive to implement in ASIC chips. At present it is not profitable to build ASIC chips for Equihash mining.

For the tests, the lowest performance was the AMD cards, which makes it possible to obtain Bitcoin Gold with an Rx card, or less. To be fair, a Rx580 was included.

A test with a Rx550 of 4gb was made, and the results are about 70 h / s for BTG mining. Although it is not ideal, however, if that is all you have, then that’s fine.

For your information:

 

The top five of the best GPUs to mine BTG with Equihashs algorithm at your consideration are:

 

1- GTX 1080 Ti 11GB / HASHRATE / SOLS

650 Sols/s with around 250 watts (est.) Or 2.6 sols / watt.

Manufacturers: Asus, MSI, Gigabyte, Evga and PNY

The approximate cost is between US $ 955.00 and US $ 1120.00

 

2- GTX 1070 8GB /  HASHRATE / SOLS

Between 420-440 Sols / s with around 150 watts or 2.86 sols / watt

Manufacturers: Asus, MSI, Gigabyte, Evga and PNY

The cost ranges between US $ 450.00 and US $ 636.00

 

3- GTX 1060 3GB and 6GB /  HASHRATE / SOLS

Between 290-310 Sols / s with around 75-99 watts or 3.50 soles / watt.

Manufacturers: Asus, MSI, Gigabyte, Evga and PNY

The cost ranges for 6GB cards between US $ 350.00 and US $ 490.00

The 3GB cards are cheaper and are around US $ 80.00

 

4- GTX 1050Ti 2GB or 4GB /  HASHRATE / SOLS

Between 140-180 Sols / s with 85 watts or 1.88 sols / watt.

Manufacturers: Asus, MSI, Gigabyte, Evga and PNY

The cost ranges between US $ 208.00 and US $ 256.00

 

5- RX 580 /  HASHRATE / SOLS

Between 297-314 Sols / s with around 135 watts or 2.29 sols / watts.

Manufacturers: Asus, MSI, Gigabyte, Evga and XFX.

The price ranges between US $ 350.00 and US $ 490.00

 

Hash Rate Comparative Summary

  • AMD RX 580 310 sols 135 watts 2.29 sols / watt
  • Nvidia GTX 1050 160 sols 85 watts 1.88 sols / watt
  • Nvidia GTX 1060 300 sols 85 watts 3.50 sols / watt
  • Nvidia GTX 1070 430 sols 150 watts 2.86 sols / watt
  • Nvidia GTX 1080 650 sols 250 watts 2.60 sols / watt

The way to calculate the sols/watt is to take the hashrate and divide it by the watts.

Example : 305 sols/90 watts = 3.3888 sols per watts.
