What Does The Future Hold?

Wij know that it’s possible to pre-calculate the DAG for a given Epoch. Consequently, wij can know ter advance how a graphics card will perform ter three, six, or 12 months.

Wij chose to test thesis cards at their stock frequencies and also with our settings optimized for a given power consumption (indicated on each chart). Last, the Radeons were tested with their original BIOSes and our modified firmware, optimizing the GDDR5 timings.

Preliminary Observations

  • The GeForce GTX 1060 3GB does not have enough memory kicking off with DAG Epoch 180 (just months away) to mine Ethereum using Claymore!

Analysis

  • The spectacle for GeForce cards does not vary, no matter the size of the DAG. And from here on out, Radeons will have the same spectacle using AMD’s Blockchain drivers. This wasn’t the case previously.
  • The spectacle of certain Radeon cards drops slightly with the largest DAG Epoch, particularly when wij optimize GPU clock rate and voltage for improved efficiency. The GPU spectacle of cards like the Radeon R9 390 could therefore prove to be insufficient above a certain DAG Epoch, at which point you’ll need to dial ter a higher frequency (necessitating higher voltages and more power consumption) to maintain the same hash rate. GeForce cards do not seem to exhibit this behavior, which could be attributed to the larger spectacle overhead available for thesis GPUs.

If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.

If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat.

If you know neither the enemy strafgevangenis yourself, you will give way te every battle.

Ideally I would have used the formula of

If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat.

If you know neither the enemy strafgevangenis yourself, you will give way ter every battle.

I don’t think that Tom’s is going to advance mining much, our longtime enthusiast members mostly won’t get into it and it’s widely enough known already. A little reserve skill for those of us on the sidelines and, who knows, maybe miners will concentrate on the most efficient cards and the price of the surplus will go down. Not an kwestie for mij, I’m running a fanless GT430, so what do I care about current prices?

Fairly the opposite I’d think. Gamers purchasing high end cards wouldn’t want them to be hamstrung by a lack of VRAM to play at higher resolutions, whereas I don’t think most mining algorithms would be significantly affected. The only concern would be Eth DAG size reaching Trio.Five GB, but it’s entirely possible it’ll go PoS and end eth mining before then anyway. And regardless, you can always mine a different coin.

6.9 million, epoch 231), not epoch 180 like shown te the article. Not sure which to trust.
