GPU Profitability Ranking

Most Profitable Coins To Mine With Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060

GTX 1060 is one the most popular graphics cards for crypto mining. Since its announcement in 2016 the device has become much cheaper and offers good value for money in terms of mining efficiency. It comes in two versions – 3GB and 6GB. The former can handle fewer cryptocurrencies.

However, apart from the difference in memory size, the two graphics cards are pretty similar. They have the same memory speed, memory bandwidth, and memory interface width. Note that the GTX 1060 with 3 GB of RAM stopped mining Ethereum and Ethereum Classic in December 2018.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 Payback Period

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 payback period depends on its efficiency (hashrate), selling price, and energy consumption. The estimate features Nvidia recommended retail price - $120, but you can change it to the price you actually paid for your GPU. The energy expenses are not taken into account in the calculation. The GPU hashrate corresponds to optimal overclocking parameters. Make sure to read: GPU Overclocking on Different Algorithms.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 Overclocking for Mining

To maximize hash rate you are probably going to need to configure additional settings. Choose an optimal GPU overclocking value to maximize hash rate and keep energy consumption at an acceptable level. Algorithms may require core overclocking, memory overclocking, or both. The main overclocking principle is stable work and maximum hash rate at an acceptable energy consumption level. It’s important to remember that each GPU is unique. If for one it is possible to overclock the core to 2000 MHz, for a similar one you may be able to overclock only to 1900 MHz. Make sure to adjust overclocking settings for each card individually.
