AMD RX Vega 64 Mining Performance Is Better Than Polaris, 43.5 MH/s Ethereum Mining Efficiency At 130W
The AMD RX Vega 64 is the top of the line GPU that team Red has to offer right now and while there are different versions that you can buy, the performance is pretty much the same. It seems that the AMD RX Vega 64 performs better than Polaris and it has a hash rate of 43.5 MH/s when mining Ethereum.
It is safe to say that the Polaris and GTX 10 series GPUs have been increasingly popular with miners and most of these GPUs have been out of stock. AMD RX Vega 64 has been out of stock since it first came out and the same is the case with the little brother the AMD Vega 56.
If you are interested in knowing how you can get 43.5 MH/s out of the AMD RX Vega 64 then the specifics that you need to know are that the GPU core clock has to be at 1000MHz and the HBM2 memory has to be set to 1100MHz. This means that the power draw will be 130W.
It is interesting to note that the mining drivers were not used for this test, instead, the Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.8.2 was installed. The user reports that there are some stability issues with the mining drivers and that is why he did not use them for the test.
The user that goes by the name S1L3N7_D3A7H also claimed that similar performance can also be expected from the AMD Vega 56 and if that is indeed the case then things should be very interesting as the GPU is less expensive as compared to the Vega 64. But you will need to get your hands on one first and reports claim that will not be possible until October.
Although you will have a hard time finding one of the GPUs at MSRP, the AMD RX Vega 64 is supposed to cost $499 and the AMD RX Vega 56 is supposed to cost $399.
Let us know what you think about the mining performance of the AMD RX Vega 64.
