AMD RX Vega 64 Performs Better Than NVIDIA Titan V In Mining
Cryptocurrency mining is rapidly becoming the main data point when evaluating Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) sales. On latest technology news, AMD RX Vega 64 has been proven to be better than NVIDIA Titan V in mining.
During the testing of the AMD RX Vega 64 and NVIDIA Titan V, Wccftech has learned that the following system configuration was used: Core i7-6700k, 32 GB DDR4-2400 Corsair Vengeance, 1200W PSU 80 Plus Gold Thermaltake ToughPower Grand, 250 GB SSD Samsung 850 Evo, NV Miner: xmr-stak 2.1, RX Miner: xmr-stak-amd 1.4, NV Driver: 388.59 and RX Driver: 17.30.1029 + Device Reset.
AMD RX Vega 64 Vs. NVIDIA Titan V Monthly Profitability
When used for CryptoNight mining algorithm and XMR Monero, AMD RX Vega 64 offers more productivity than the TITAN V. The pride of AMD delivers a monthly profitability (optimal) of $176 in XMR Monero. It also offers monthly profitability (optimal) of 3x of $542.18 in the same open-source cryptocurrency. Meanwhile, the NVIDIA Titan V has a monthly profitability (optimal) of $130.
AMD RX Vega 64 Vs. NVIDIA Titan V Time To Break-even Investment
As for the estimated time to break-even on user’s investment stated on latest technology news, the AMD RX Vega 64 will manage to achieve that goal in 4.54 months. For the 3x AMD RX Vega 64 it will take up to 4.4 months. On the other hand, the NVIDIA GTX TITAN V can break even in 1 year and 10.9 months. When it comes to ETH mining, NVIDIA GTX TITAN V can by in 1 year and 3 months.
To conclude the results, it really appears that the AMD RX Vega 64s blockchain driver can do wonders for the productivity of the card. It is an awesome GPU to utilize especially if the user will be mining a CryptoNight based coin. For reference, XMR Monero is the most widely held cryptocurrency based on this algorithm.
