Most Profitable Coins To Mine With AMD Radeon RX 480

AMD Radeon RX 480 is a performance oriented graphics card. It was announced in June 2016. As for the crypto mining, RX 480 performs slightly better than RX 470. For example, when mining Ethereum they give out 27 MH/s and 29 MH/s respectively. And on MTP and Equihash algorithms the numbers are the same.

Miners say that this card will be retired in the near future, so it's too late to consider it for your first mining rig. The current owners of this card complain about weak overclocking potential, so getting the most out of the RX 480 is not an easy job.

AMD Radeon RX 480 Payback Period

The AMD Radeon RX 480 payback period depends on its efficiency (hashrate), selling price, and energy consumption. The estimate features Amd recommended retail price - $110, 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.

AMD Radeon RX 480 Overclocking for Mining

To maximize hash rate you are probably going to need to configure additional settings. First, make sure that the GPU driver you are using supports mining. You might also need an upgrade in case you have AMD GPUs. Next step is to 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. Find out more: GPU Overclocking on Different Algorithms.
