Welcome friends, in today’s article we will review and test geforce gtx 1060 video card from nvidia, learn its speed and hash rate on the most profitable algorithms to date, as well as compare, learn about power consumption and income and leave our feedback.
In our example there will be a video card palit storm x gtx 1060 3gb and mining on it, I’ll tell you right away, that its disadvantage in mining is that it has one fan, so the cooling is not good, although these cards themselves are cold. Also I want to say that the speed of 6gb version is about the same, so the example of 3 gigs. If you have a farm then you can still Mayni, but in a buried case it will be hot. It was just a Share and I got it for only 11.000 rubles (the average price of such a card is from 13500 to 15.000), so for such a price you can take one.
Photo palit storm x gtx 1060 3gb
Now a brief description of the characteristics of palit storm x gtx 1060 3gb
Memory capacity – 3072 mb
Core frequency 1506 mhz, turbo 1709 mhz
Memory frequency 8008 mhz (Samsung)
all we need is the rest of the screen.
Now let’s start with what you came here for:
We will test the most profitable and stable to date (17.05.2017) algorithms and coins is ethereal (ethereum) and zcash (equihash) learn their speed and hash rate and profitability, as well as consider the dual mapping on gtx 1060.
And so in parts:
1. The mining speed of eth from the box, and under the acceleration.
2. Mining speed rvn under acceleration
3. And dual mining eth + dcr, eth + lbry.
4. The zcash mining speed from the box, and under the acceleration.
Everything will be tested on 376.33 drivers, under windows 7 x64, the program to overclock msi afterburner, Pentium g2030 miners processor below.
We will also indicate the income of this card according to whattomine version.
And so let’s start with the air:
(By the way, if you don’t know how to mince the air about read – How to get newcomers on the air)
ATTENTION! The 3 gb mining is no longer available, it can be mined on 6 gigobytes, test on them.
Speed and hash rate of ethereum mining on palit gtx 1060 from box without overclocking on claymore eth dual miner 12.0.
As you can see, the average speed is about 18.895 mh/s, which is not very good, but it is not overclocking. Consumption is about 183 watts with the system.
Now the optimal setting for the gtx 1060 is, in my opinion, for mining.
Speed and hash rate of ethereum mining on palit gtx 1060 with acceleration and optimal setting on claymore eth dual miner 12.0.
Kernel +200, memory +800 – Average speed 23.064 mh/s is a normal result, the consumption of 195 watts with the system.
Next, different settings for your interest.
Core +50, memory +600 – 21.650 mh/s 190 watts
On the new Claymore 14.7 miner, the increase is 1 – 2 mh/s.
Mining RVN 1060:
This currency (raven), good for 3 gig versions, top earning coin for them (11.07.2019)
Rvn overclocking gtx 1060
This is the kind of overclocking I’ve used, it’s so far the best.
Next is the speed and hash rate of the rvn with the miner nevermore at gtx 1060.
From one card 1060, 7 – 8 mh/s. Which is a very good result. Acceleration as in the screenshot above:
75% Power limit
+150 core clock
+120 memory clock
And now we’ll move on to dual mapping on nvidia gtx 1060 eth + dcr, eth + lbry.
ATTENTION! Mining on 3 gb is no longer available, it can be mined on 6 gigobyte versions, test on them.
Ethereum + dcr speed and hash rate on palit gtx 1060 without overclocking from the box on claymore eth dual miner 12.0.
Not dense, the average speed of the air is 18,306 mh/sec, the consumption is 190 watts.
Next, in my opinion, the optimal settings
Mining speed and hash rate ethereum + dcr on palit gtx 1060 with acceleration and optimal setting on claymore eth dual miner 12.0.
Kernel +200, memory +800 – Average broadcast speed 22.101 mh/s, deceded 221.300 mh/s that good result, power consumption 200 – 202 watts
The following are the different settings
Core +100, memory +200 – 21,950 mh/s air, Decrease 219,800 mh/s electrical consumption 198 – 200 watts
And the last one was a duel with eth + lbry.
The speed and hash rate of ethereum + lbc on palit gtx 1060 without overclocking from the box on claymore eth dual miner 9.3 (don’t forget to prescribe -dcoin lbc).
Of course, that’s how the air is 17,402 mh/s, libra 16,700 mh/s consumes 183 watts.
Well, now the optimal settings, which have not changed in principle.
Mining speed and hash rate of ethereum + lbc on palit gtx 1060 with acceleration and optimal setting on claymore eth dual miner 9.3.
As we see the kernel +200, memory +800 – the average speed of the air is 20.880 mh/s, libra 20.000 mh/s consumption is 196 watts.
Now let’s move on to z-kash:
For those who do not know how to maneuver the zoom, read – how to mince zcash)
Speed and hash rate of zcash mining on palit gtx 1060 from the box without overclocking, with Zec miner 0.3.2b.
In the screen you can see it yourself, but if you count the average speed of 263 sol/s, in principle not bad for 13.500 p. But it’s not bad for 13.500 r/s, either. Consumption together with the system is 190 watts, which is also not bad.
Next, I’ve been selecting the best speed/consumption settings for a long time.
Speed and hash rate of zcash mining on palit gtx 1060 in acceleration with optimal settings, Zec miner 0.3.2b
As we can see the 225 core, 601 memory, the average speed is 296.8 sol/s, which is very good, and the consumption has increased by only 8 – 10 watts, that is 198 – 200 watts with the system.
Here are the different settings for gtx 1060, without screenshots for general view.
Kernel +280, memory +601 – 298.4 a little higher, but the consumption is large and the stability is bad, can fly out drivers, etc.
Kernel +290, memory 0 – 290 sol/s, also not good.
Everything with the zcash algorithm is over.
What is more profitable to minimize? The answer can not be given, because the exchange rate is changing, but at the moment 11.07.2019 according to whattomine better to minimize the air is equal to 3gb and the air 6gb.
The version of whattomine on profitableness 1060 on 11.07.2019 with one:
6gb eth – 0.70$
3gb rvn – 0.56$
on a 24-hour basis.
By the way, gtx 1060 is faster than minit, read this article about it. – New miners for nvidia.
I think that’s enough experimentation. Our review and opinion on gtx 1060.
Advantages if you compare it to a competitor 470 (stitched):
+ Good minite libra, rvn, eth
-Less ether and decree mining speed compared to the 470.
What to advise, if you are afraid to sew 470, 480 then 1060 for you.
Should I collect the farm? Well, in my opinion, if there’s one or two farms on radios, you can collect 1060.
Now the answers to popular questions.
Firmware for gtx 1060, is there one? – I don’t have any firmware for the 1060, and I don’t need any.
How can I overclock nvidia gtx 1060 for mining purposes? – With the help of msi afterburner, the best settings are above in this article.
1060 3gb vs (vs) 1060 6gb for mining, who cares what’s better? – It doesn’t matter, the speed of mining doesn’t change from memory size, the only difference is the price.
Which gtx 1060 card is better for mining? – Which example is better – one vendor is bad, if something is cheaper, then a very good option is palit dual gtx 1060 which has two fans, and if you don’t save what MSI does.
Basically everything, I have answered the most popular questions.
If you don’t know much about mining, I advise you to read this article. How to Maintain Beginners.
Another 1,060 could be more Mayni. – optimized miner nvidia.
