Cryptocurrency mining is a craze these days since Bitcoin has reached an all-time high. We talked about AMD and Nvidia taking an interest in this market and that the companies will be releasing products for this market. We got leaks regarding the Nvidia systems that will be coming out for this market, now we have information regarding crypto mining GTX 1080 and 1060 GPUs.
We talked about how crypto mining GPUs will be different from normal GPUs that we use for gaming. They will not have any display ports and will cost less as well. That is what we are seeing here. The crypto mining GTX 1080 does not have display ports and costs $350, which is very low for an Nvidia GTX 1080 GPU.
The GPU has about the same specifications but when it comes to mining it will be capable of 60MH/s, which is more than double what a traditional GTX 1080 will give you. If you are a miner then this is great value for money. The crypto mining GTX 1060, on the other hand, will offer higher performance for mining as well just like the crypto mining GTX 1080.
Cryptocurrency mining is trending these days and we talked about the AMD RX 580 and RX 570 GPUs being out of stock at major retailers like Amazon. Seeing the demand for such GPUs companies are now trying to target this market segment. These crypto mining GTX 1080 and 1060 GPUs are great for mining but it all depends on the mining market.
If the market declines then these GPUs will be worthless, keeping in mind that they do not have any display ports, they cannot be used for gaming or other applications. You can check out more details about these mining cards here.
