Note: we already have reviews for this cards. This quick post doesn’t try to address what already have been addressed. I just had a few hours to play with this card, so I thought you’d find these numbers useful. We had only 1 algo benchmarked before, now we have 4 more. That’s all.
Note: in this post I used ccminer-tpruvot, make sure to check out part 2 for some NiceHash results!
So without further ado, this is NV’s all new shiny beast:
To have a baseline, let’s add a few more GPUs to the mix:
The exact lineup, from left to right:
Yeah, the Titan Xp has “TITAN X” printed on it, not Xp. Because reasons.
- Intel E3-1275 v5
- Gigabyte GA-X170-WS ECC
- 64 GB DDR4
- Windows 10 1709 (16299.192)
- nVidia Driver 390.65
- ccminer-tpruvot 2.2.4
Everything was running at stock values. The results:
Looks pretty good, but nowhere near as threatening as the Ethereum benchmarks I saw. Naturally, there should be a lot of optimiziations coming up, but I guess it’ll take a more affordable card so that the poor devs can start working on Volta. But most current miners sure are buggy as hell with this new architecture. For example, this is what excavator looks like:
And this is actually one of the better ones, 9 of the 14 miners won’t even start at all. The rest displays totally stupid values, like 0.1 BTC in a day and stuff. But it should all be fixed up pretty soon. If I can, I’ll re-test these in the coming months.
