What is the best Mining Hardware for Crypto Currency ? GPU

What are the best GPU for mining thats the most question i have received in the past couple months since bitcoin hit $19k.

Looks like everyone and there mom is trying to start mining so here is some info to get started and to keep in mind.

 

You need to be living where the cost of electricity is not very high or you will end up paying way more for electricity then making any profit for what you are mining. Another option you have is actually to start getting your energy from renewables like solar or wind. This can even benefit you personally on your electricity bill in the long run and help the environment.

 

After much resource here is the best cheapest equipment i can find and links are below directly where you can buy them.

Email me or comment below if you find anything cheaper and i will add it to the list.

 

Please make sure you have a clear concept first If you want to mine bitcoin or lite coin then you must go with asic But at the moment you can’t get sha-356 or  a s9 antminer for $2k If you want one of those beasts you would  need to put out way more cash as there is no more in stock on there site bitmain so you might end up paying something around 4.5k
But i advice that you Don’t go with Asic i advice to go with gpu for mining ethereum , ethereum classic or monero (much better return and more stable)

GPU:

xfx radeon rx 580 2 rig with 8 card

sapphire nitro rx 580 1 rig with 8 cards

powercolor red devil rx 580 1 rig with 8 cards

Nitro+ card give 31mhz/s mining speed

 

Also if you got the cash to spend then this is the top gaming graphics card:

NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1080 Ti : Has the best hash rate for ETH Ethereum, but down side is it consumes to much power under mining load but the midrange cards like the GeForce GTX 1070 or AMD Radeon RX 480 don’t take as much power.

 

What is a GPU you ask ? here is simplified wikipedia Definition:

A graphics processing unit is a specialized electronic circuit designed to rapidly manipulate and alter memory to accelerate the creation of images in a frame buffer intended for output to a display device

 

Sapphire Nitro RX 580
