Turing hunts also the crypto mining. And outruns all other GPU’s currently available in the market. The new generation of Turing GPUs on Nvidia’s graphics cards that debuted as RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti proves to be a “monster” in Etereum mining.
The test was conducted on an Intel Core i7-8700K processor with the Claymore Dual GPU Miner v11.9. It is interesting to note that this is the latest version of Claymore that does not yet officially support the new RTX. So with future versions of the software optimized for the generation of Turing cards, even better results are expected. But at the moment the results are as shown in the above figure.
The RTX 2080 Ti without overclocking and without HBM 2 drives is in front of a Vega 64 and reaches a hash rate of 49 MH/s, compared to 42.1 MH/s of the AMD card. It even beats the Titan XP, which still costs more than this card, and does not reach such good numbers.
But the price of the card is not good for these tasks, remember also that Bitmain has just announced that its next ASIC chip at 7 nm is already in series.
