The Definitive Ethereum Mining Performance Article

There Is A Clear Winner

 

This is what we're all here for, right? The battle in the Ethereum mining performance between NVIDIA and AMD is an epic one, as NVIDIA continues to dominate the gaming market with their top to bottom GeForce GTX 10 series.

AMD, on the other hand, really does rule Ethereum mining even in the older Hawaii and Fiji GPU architectures. Until the Radeon RX 400 and RX 500 series came into existence last year, the Radeon R9 Fury X was the champion miner for AMD.

 

In the Hawaii GPU architecture, AMD had the absolute #1 performing card for Ethereum mining: the Radeon R9 295X2 dual-GPU graphics card. The Radeon R9 295X2 is a freaking Ethereum mining beast.

 

But AMD's new Radeon RX Vega series graphics cards are even better thanks to their use of HBM2 memory and huge bandwidth numbers; Vega topples the best GPUs from NVIDIA.
