There are already a lot of rumors over the internet, including some leaked photos, specs and gaming performance results of a new Maxwell-based GPU coming from Nvidia next week – the GTX 960. The final specifications of the GTX 960 are not officially announced, but according to the information available the card will come with 1024 CUDA cores, 64 TMUs, 32 ROPs, 128-bit memory bus or essentially half of the specs of the GTX 980. The expected power usage is around 120W or around double that of the GTX 750 Ti with an expected end-user price of about $199 USD ($149 for the 2GB GTX 750 Ti). So with just $50 USD more you could be able to get a new Maxwell-based GPU that could as well provide twice the crypto mining performance of a GTX 750 Ti GPU and if this is indeed true when we see the final card and the actual performance it offers it will be quite an interesting alternative to GTX 750 Ti for mining rigs. That of course is still in the form of speculations as we don’t have officials announced product and specifications, but our expectations based on the leaked data so far suggest that about twice the performance of GTX 750 Ti is possible. We are going to be keeping an eye out for the announcement of the new GTX 960 graphic processors from Nvidia expected next week and are going to be trying out a card as soon as we manage to get our hands on one of these to see what kind of performance will it offer for crypto mining. So stay tuned for more information when it becomes available.

At current prices that $200 could buy 1BTC. You’d be hard pressed to make that 1BTC back just mining.

I would remind them about the GPU only algorithms (X11, X13, X15, Nist5, Neoscrypt, Lyra2 etc) miners are actually making technical annualized losses on their daily mining in USA and even in Iceland.

Darkcoin mined at exchange price of 0.006BTC generates 3.5 cent profit per day in the USA, which equals to anual income $12.77 and even over the 3 year warranty of Nvidia 750TI (maxwell silicon is the most efficient hasher) it equates to a net income of $38.77. A Nvidia 750 TI costs $160, this translates in loss of 3 year loss of $121.23 dollars, this does not even include additional $280 dollars needed to build the PC to mine with? LOL

Even, if you moved to Iceland, where electricity is 3cent a watt; mining Darkcoin with one Nvidia 750TI would generate a net annual income of $43.80, over its’ 3 year warranty this equates to $131.4. A net loss of £28.60.

Essentially, everyone mining on the GPU algorithms is making technical losses over the warranty cycles of newer GPU’s.

Currently, a lot of old Fiat Currency Profiteers with 7950’s, 7970’s, 7990’s owners paid of their PC rigs investments costs between 2013-2014 during the Litecoin (scrypt) boom, essentially these people will continue to mine until the electricity costs are off greater value to the coin value.

These older cards are not expected to fail in large quantities until 2016, which is when Nvidia and AMD have scheduled their new silicon to appear. A lot of Fiat Currency Profiteers will not be reinvesting, maybe mining will become profitable then?

hi, cool blog
can you update for cryptonight coin for vga mining results?
thanks
