ASIC hardware issues mean u are calling China for warranty/parts.
Cuban Hacker (10 months ago)
They have a service center in USA
hanabih (1 year ago)
Was going to add this: nvidia and amd are the main designers of Gpus. They've got tonnes of r&D and resources which allow them to back their products with years as opposed to days in warranty coverage. They've been in the business for 10-15 years if not more. And grew up gaming with their cards and know their products. In comparison: Asics biggest manufacturer Bitmain made in 2013 is disorganized, greedy, mines against its customers, warranty is 180 (not 90), language barrier is massive with delayed response time. Baikal, innosilicon, ibelink have worse response time and no proper website to order from. I think baikal gives a 30 day warranty. Innosilicon 45 days on a A4 that costs 10,000$. WHY one would buy these is beyond me.

honestly i wants to mine via gpu but i m not so techy so i cant assemble all hardwares by own i think ):
Angry Chicken (5 months ago)
Pandey Suraj asics are better if your power cost is zero but they have more risk. If the coin you mine becomes unprofitable then noone will buy your asic from you
PunkSandwich (5 months ago)
The aspect of this I don't see you emphasize (which seems critical here) is that the if the difficulty changes or they do something with the algorithm, the Asic will lose an incredible amount of ability instantly. Several days ago I saw an announcement that a particular coin's difficulty tripled due to Asic mining but that it did not affect the gpus. So all the people with that Asic miner just lost 66% of their mining? It seems like Asic is higher risk, high electricity, high potential return ONLY AT THE BEGINNING. The gpus, slow and steady, low risk, you can repurpose, longer life, right? Is this accurate? Plus, although yes you need to have all these components for a computer to say get 3 gpus going in a tower, in order to do the asics you need to have the electrical capacity you have in a residential upgraded, which might be very costly compared with pc towers you can probably do 1 or 2 pcs on every circuit without tripping every breaker. Also, you can change out the gpu when it becomes obsolete. The electrical expansion for Asics seems to be much more expensive is than building pcs (unless you are a diy electrician and you got to change out that romex to accommodate higher amperage voltage). Maybe you can get an Asic on a low load circuit and pray the breaker doesn't trip? Have to check the load on every circuit. If I'm mistaken, let me know and explain the logistics.

Can't rely on someone that is in love with the GPU aspect too give me an honest assessment of a asic based miner unit.
Reed Davidson (9 months ago)
GPU Mining is not profitable - Most mining pools are offering coins using different algo's that the newer ASIC machines are offering (like myr groestl, skein, quibit etc) - I spent $5k on a 4 GPU miing rig, and it will take me 2 years to break even. Not a very good ROI. So maybe the ASIC's are $3.5K - but they offer a MUCH higher hash rate, so the ROI is going to be alot quicker. I appreciate that you are trying to keep mining decentralized, but I don't think you can do it. It would have to be up to the coins to create algo's that are asic proof, but no coin would do that. Unfortunately, they want their transactions processed quickly, and the bigger farms are in a better position to do that for them.

Should I get s9 or mining rig with 3x gtx 1080ti and which is more profitable
tieuquy linthinh (8 months ago)
S9 as an Samsung s9 lol
Mack (11 months ago)
TeoFeel I just bought an antminer s9 and I also mine with a GPU. The antminer is much more profitable for the popular coins, bitcoin especially, but keep in mind these are very expensive to buy upfront and there is a lot of work to go into it. The first issue is they take a lot of power and for certain power supplies you'll need a special circuit wired that you may not have access to. They also don't always work correctly, when mine came in it was dead and it was a huge pain trying to trouble shoot with customer support from China. So the decision is up to you, I'm just warning you it's not as good as it might sound

John Meise (11 months ago)
Did you honestly just call a $400-$500 a cheap GPU? Umm....no sir, that is second to third tier GPU pricing (third with the TIs now). Cheap GPUs are $200 or less. And honestly, those aren't technically "cheap" GPUs but rather the most affordable GPUs that will perform well for gaming.
LarryM (10 months ago)

Dragon Steel (11 months ago)
Seems like it would almost be most beneficial for a group of people to invest in a D-WAVE Q2000. I'd be interested to see what happens when one mines on a Q-Bit processor. I mean over 3000 times faster than the best super computers in the world, it's gotta be a fast earner. What can you hash when a 1 and a 0 can occur at the same time?
LarryM (10 months ago)
Dragon Steel right now it's theoretical with their hash rate since it costs more to operate one than what you would make mining. The cost to run means only the biggest businesses can have any reasonable uses for one.

Tan Cakar (1 year ago)
how can you say with a normal brain in your head that the second-hand value of Asic is nothing when the item is sold out ? do you know the less the things are the expensive they go, at the moment second hand ASIC's are expensive then the new ones because they are 4 months of waiting? I understand your point of course you can sell graphics cards easy if SOMEHOW, bitcoins claps and worth nothing which is now worth more then twice last year. if something sold out , it means they are reliable and working very well , it doesn't mean anything else. i dont know how you cant see ASIC is a much more better investment? for god sake , if you would buy last year this machine and made all money and realise you dont want to mine anymore you can sell it for so much more. today antminers go for over £3000 last year they were £2000 to buy NEW? where is your theory sits?

Shane Garner (10 months ago)
No problem. Yes, they are loud enough to where you would want them in a room of their own, with the door closed. I bought a 5 shelf cabinet and lined it with a bed top foam material. Drilled 5 inch holes in each side of each miner to have an intake side and an exhaust side. Cost about $100 and took a couple hours to complete. I use pools that switch to more profitable coins. If I want to be paid in BTC and have the Antiminers getting paid at the same time as my GPU's, I use Nicehash. If I want to be paid daily in LTC, I use Prohashing. They both pay about the same and mine the most efficient/profitable coin.
Shane Garner (10 months ago)
I've only had them for 5-6 months. Zero issues running 24/7. I will only sell them when something better arrives at my door. Even if I had cashed in on every single coin they mined they are well past ROI. If I consider the inflation of the coins they've mined, I'm 4x on my investment. Not to mention I can sell the miners too! I have several 1060's mining as well, but the ROI is super slow in comparison. You just cannot compare the 2 as far as ROI is concerned.

card running 24x7 at 70+ deg, on mine i have it underclocked while mining, 59 deg, put clocks up if gaming and card runs at 65 - 70 deg, i am sure not all miners will underclock a card, they want max profit, and if a card breaks, send it to manufacturer for warranty.
Smoky Tyrz (1 year ago)
Please explain how you "Wear out" a video card. Fans, sure. Get news ones. But the card? It's either fried, or it's not. Besides, any miner with sense knows they make more with a cooler card running at a healthy OEM 100% compared to a strung out o/c'd card

Gpus make a £1.50 a day each mining ethereum not really worth the investment cost and most asics are making like $10 a day so best to buy bitcoin and hold it most people buy asci miners and just resell on ebay for profit these are box shifters

Is it worth getting l3+ these days if I can get it for 2750?
Nolan Strommer (1 year ago)
Noted. So either or limits what kind of coin I can mine. Is that why you recommend I wait until next week and get the EVGA 1070ti ? That card must offer more flexibility in terms of what coin to mine ?
Angry Chicken (1 year ago)
if you get Nvidia cards you'll be more so forced to mine the Equihash coins Amd is more for the Ethhash Coins (1080ti being the exception)
Nolan Strommer (1 year ago)
Again I appreciate your quick responses. Looks like I will be starting my mining project via 1070 ti GPU's. Do you think 8 is a good number for my first rig ? I pay 12 cents/ Kw for electricity. I'm assuming that the smarter route is to get GPU's and mine a variety of coins. Keep it up man !
Angry Chicken (1 year ago)
The 1080Ti is the best card and also a bonus you can pull it off to game with if you're into that but the 1070ti is suppose to offer the best cost per performance. All not confirmed right now, but I have 1080ti's and am happy
Nolan Strommer (1 year ago)
Thank you for the quick response. My electricity cost is $ 12 cents per kW. Based off of that information - what would you recommend ? 1070Ti would be the best GPU i could get a hold of ? Would like to have a powerful mining rig :)

so basically ASIC can only mine dash coin and litecoin?
Angry Chicken (1 year ago)
Kinda, they can mine whatever coin has the algorithm they are built for. Very few coins are made with asic algos. And when new coins come out GPU's mine them while the asics are developed, kinda like early access.

Great Video except for one thing...It's not true That antminers don't have an High resell value.. You can buy an antminer S9 for at least Sixty percent price of the New One model.. check it on eBay or Amazon.. even the oldest Models keep the Value.. but the High dollar for GH/s percentage ratio makes It a bad investment ..Sorry for my bad english

Brian Wamsley (1 year ago)
The problem with the statement that ASICS become useless when a new version comes out is incorrect. Even the original Butterfly Labs machines (There's a joke in there, but I'll refrain) will generate SOME hash rate that can add to your overall total as you add newer machines. So if you add a 20Ths machine (Assuming that's the next progression) then you're actually going to mine with 34Ths between the 2 machines. No sense in getting rid of them just because they become the lesser of your devices. Seems that the best thing about GPU mining is that you have more flexibility to mine different coins that are ASIC resistant or untouchable by the Antminer machines. Love your videos. Thanks!
Nadim Awan2 (1 year ago)

Hi all. I'm an old hand t computers, but new to GPU mining. I'm looking to probably build a mining rig, but I would like yo know, what would be a typical rig (as far as components) capable of mining at a decent hash rate and earning a worthwhile monthly income? And just what kind of income is typical for GPU mining? Thanks in advance.
aluckyshot (1 year ago)
Nolan Strommer For GPU mining or gaming they are amazing. I am about to buy two other 1080TI cards because evga is so popular they are sold out often. I have 3 of the card you are talking about and I wish I had 8 hehe
Nolan Strommer (1 year ago)
aluckyshot - Would you say that the GTX 1080 TI FTW3 are the best GPU cards on the market right now ? If i were to build a rig consisting of 8 GPU's what is the best GPU I can get ? Thanks.
aluckyshot (1 year ago)
Right now in my rigs cards earn anywhere from a dollar to three, and it varies constantly. Latest cards I have been adding are GTX 1080 TI FTW3, I wouldn't buy anything less but would consider equivalent other cards. You can use cheaper cards but ROI isn't short and I feel better with top of the line stuff and the three year warranty from Evga. My next purchase is going to be from Bitmain but I will also keep adding video cards too.

Salvatore Militello (1 year ago)
Ok please correct me if I am wrong and don't be an ass cause I'm ignorant im just trying to learn Asic's are hundreds or thousands of tiny gpu's compiled on a icb using software to do the "math"for you That being said y can't you use Asic's for all mining if you can program them accordingly? And with the graphics card market is crazy right now forcing you to spend way more for a lower hash rate
Angry Chicken (1 year ago)
ASIC = Application Specific Integrated Circuit It's non programmable, so it can only hash SHA256 nothing else

Agree with your conclusion. The key is resale value the GPU's win in every way. Along with being less noisy GPU mining wins

ASIC buying from Ger is about 2300€ with a PSU (delivering Nov), for that I can get a 6 1070gtx rig, and when I compare profits on wtm I get average 1$ more a day with gpu mining
Justin Pockrus (1 year ago)
Well the 1080ti isnt the best miner in terms of newer cards. The 1070 is better from my research :)
Angry Chicken (1 year ago)
Yes but 1070's cost more at that time still do in Canada. this is what makes 1080TI's better for us canadians if you can get them for cheaper then ya 1070's are better but beware you won't find a buyer very easily in the future

everything mined with ASIC isnt meant for the average miner they difficulty curve on everything mined on these is way too high. bitcoin for example has an average 1.5% difficulty increase PER DAY. they all do. every 80-100 days your profit is halved. and its been like that since asic appeared. 1 person buying 1 of these to get started, isnt going to work.

Since it can only mine certain coins, do you know if it's harder to withdraw those coins when you would like to and turn it into cash? It seems less main stream, and I can picture it being more of a hastle to get your money opposed to cashing in your bitcoins.

300W consumption for a GTX1080ti is too much. Do not use factory OCed GPUs for mining, non OCed models are more efficient. for best efficiency OC core and memory of a non factory OCed model and leave power limit at 100%. this way you can get 750 sol/s from a 1080ti with just 250W of power consumption.
Neurolicious (1 year ago)
Yeah I never understood OC ones... People buy em like crazy... extra fans are good but yeah my 1080Ti FE's are more energy efficient than Aorus, Oc Black Editions and some more. External 35-60Watt fan cools them well.. its dumb to put another $40 to get a card with extra fan lol
JAMES BEAM (1 year ago)
Not against ASIC miners, but not only are you getting from China, you have to wait 2-3 months after you pay before they ship the unit. Difficulty exponentially goes up after each of their shipments, and your hardware becomes worthless after a short time. It's a rat race to get your money back and into the green. I think it's still profitable, but I hate having to wait for months for it while watching the difficulty of the coin skyrocket and profit estimates dwindle even before I can get mine delivered and hooked up.

VR all day... mine all night. I'm getting plenty sick of people hating on miners. On the other hand, I'm getting annoyed that the prices of PC components are wicked high... but nobody is whining that SSD and RAM prices are also inflated due to demand. Late adopters finally have to pay for sitting on their hands. If you're building a computer now it's pricey... but then again, the returns for building Skynets are pretty sweet. If you're just a gamer, wait for the new Xbox. If you're interested in building PC's for the future, you've found the right channel.
