Recommendations (graphics card / mining-software)


#1

I am really a mining newbie and never thought about mining before. I consider mining æternity now and want want to ask you for recommendations (cheap/normal/expensive) regarding:

  • graphics card
  • mining-software

it would be cool to have some insights about statistics with different graphic cards if someone is able to provide them.

The most efficient Zcash GPUs, in terms of expected energy use to find one solution, appear to be the various incarnations of NVIDIA GTX 1080 and 1070, and it’s reasonable to assume those would also be the best performers on Cuckoo Cycle.
