Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Crypto Mining Performance

9 Mar
2017

The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is the latest addition in Nvidia’s lineup of high-end gaming GPUs, but here we are more interested in another aspect for using these video cards – crypto mining. Tomorrow, March 10th, the sales of the new Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti should start priced at $699 USD, though initially there will be only Founders Edition models only with availability of non-reference designs expected to start showing for sale in April. The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is based on GDDR5X memory clocked at 11 GHz, so the memory timings might not be the best for memory-based crypto algorithms, but the serious number of CUDA cores is there to compensate in terms of performance. Do note that the TDP of the new cards is set at 250W, though we expect that you should be able to lower the Power Limit a bit and get a better results than at stock settings.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Specifications:

– Texture Rate (Bilinear): 331.5 GigaTexels/sec
– Fabrication Process: 16 nm
– Transistor Count: 12 Billion
– Connectors: 3 x DisplayPort, 1 x HDMI
– Form Factor: Dual Slot
– Power Connectors: One 6-pin, One 8-pin
– Recommended Power Supply: 600 Watts
– Thermal Design Power (TDP): 250 Watts
– Thermal Threshold: 91° C

We have managed to do some quick testing of the new GTX 1080 Ti and the results do seem promising. Starting with the currently more profitable algorithms on NiceHash and benchmarking with their NiceHash Miner that uses various fast performing miners (the miner used is noted after the algorithm). Not all of the latest and highest performing miners may be included, so we also ran some additional tests using the Claymore ETH miner that managed to provide a stable hashrate of about 31.8 MHS with stock settings of the card as well as the latest EWBF CUDA miner that managed to squeeze a bit more at about 625 H/s from the GTX 1080 Ti.

You can use these numbers as a reference, including the expected daily profitability if selling the hashrate form a GTX 1080 Ti on NiceHash that their miner also reports. Hopefully we are going to be able to run some more benchmarks in the next couple of days and play around to see what the GPU is capable in terms of overclocking, though with the pretty high boost frequency and a TDP of 250W you should not be expecting a lot more at least from the Founders Edition version that is launching first. Do note that properly powering and cooling six of these GPUs in a mining rig is not going to be as easy as with GTX 1070 Founders Edition for example that consume much less power and are a much more popular choice by miners using Nvidia GPUs.

Do note that with the launch of the GTX 1080 Ti, Nvidia is also going to have a new pricing for the GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition and GeForce GTX 1080 partner boards that will get a bit more cheaper. There is no word on reducing the prices of the GTX 1070 as well however. Furthermore two new models with higher clocked video memory should be available soon, the GeForce GTX 1080 with 11 Gbps along with the already available 10 Gbps model as well as GeForce GTX 1060 9 Gbps along the already available 8 Gbps versions. The faster memory variants might be of interest especially for the miners that are into mining crypto currencies based on algorithms that are more memory dependent such as ZEC or ETH for example.

Greetings,

I do not understand how the benchmark results vary so widely, from hundreds to millions of hashes per second?

Which software os the fastest?

Thanks

Different algorithms – different performance.

Yup… Anyone that is expecting these to be profitable to mine with will be disappointed. GDDR5 X puts it in the same boat as the 1080, which is also a bad value proposition. Great for gaming, terrible for mining. It’ll be very interesting to see what those 1060s with faster memory pull off. Looking forward to CMB getting their hands on one.

Those numbers are strange….There should be no reason why the Lyra2rev2 hashrate is slower than my 1080 (50 mh/s) since this algo isn’t effected by the gddr5x

my 1070 gets similar to that, wow…

Hey, where i can download this benchmark tool?

It is not a Benchmark software, it is a mining software with Benchmark functionality – https://github.com/nicehash/NiceHashMiner/releases

So while I am still a newb to mining…

I’m mining XMR, using ccMiner, and only getting approx 1k harshrate per gtx1080 (SC). I have 2 of these things.
What could be the cause?

SPECS:

i7 7700k
z270 Maximus IX
16G Ram
2x GTX 1080 EVGA SC
—> Driver: 381.65
—> Shared Sys. Mem: 8gb

MINING PROGRAM:
ccminer 2.0 bitcore cuda-7.5

claymore with bytecoin was worse.

ALL THROUGH the minerGate pool.

thanks for any insight, aas well as time.

Roman, you are actually getting exactly what you should be for mining XMR. Both XMR and Bytecoin are based on the CryptoNight algorithm, which was designed to be mined only by CPU. Accordingly, they benefit from very low memory latency and high memory speeds. It may not be worth it to mine these algorithms with your card. I am achieving much better payout with my 1080 TI by mining EquiHash, Lyra2rev2 and lbry algorithms. I am averaging around .0038 BTC per day with one card on these.

You know i read these comments and i have these cards and it doesn’t add up. first i have evga 1080ti ftw 4 cards i get 680-690 sol/s at 200-215 watts per card and am running at total system watts just around 1000w using a corsair ax1200i. Yes i could get 700+ sol/s but i don’t beat my cards to death for an extra dollar, my highest temp being 59-60c.fans set to 50% power to 75% mem to +600 and gpu set to +135 i use an external fan to help cause they are easy to replace. the chart above seems to be 10-30% lower than it should be, is it cause its a founders? You know i just don’t get it. Maybe cause of driver updates?

Which coins you recommend to mine using GT1080TI?
Its a bit tricky to figure out from the hash benchmark – for which these are excellent results and for which poor :)

How can u do this?

I’m building a new mining rig with 3 gtx 1080 to wanting to oc them. Would you be able to help me in telling me what kinds of hash rates I would be getting and also where I should mine and programs that I should be using

(Sorry I’m noob at this but I’m really into this kinda stuff)
