What is an “uplift”?
Before heading further into the topic of top 3 GPUS in Q1 2019, I need to clarify the term “uplift” which is used a lot by the makers of MiningOptimizer. We refer to “uplift” when talking about the difference between mining ETH and using MiningOptimizer to mine coins.
An uplift of 60 % thus means, that MiningOptimizer generated 60 % more profit than just mining ETH.
The GeForce RTX 2080
We have all been quite curious to see which GPU would emerge as the best performing GPU in terms of uplift in Q1 and now being already way into Q2 we can have a good look at all the figures. Aaaaaaand the Oscar for best performance all through January, February and March 2019 goes to the GeForce RTX 2080.
MiningOptimizer in combination with the GeForce RTX 2080 generated an average of incredible 120 % more profit during the first three months of the year, than just mining ETH . At first we couldn’t believe it, but after checking and rechecking the figures we are now pretty much in awe at what the GeForce RTX 2080 running on MiningOptimizer has accomplished. Have a look at its performance for the last four weeks here: https://www.miningoptimizer.net/ui/calculation.
Last but not least, you might be asking yourself which coins were mined by the GeForce RTX 2080 to generate such a profit. I’ll let the cat out of the bag. In total a mining combination of about 10 coins was the secret recipe for Q1: Nicehash-X16R, Ravencoin, Aeternity, Grin, Zcoin, Nicehash-Ethash, Nicehash-Cuckaroo29, BitcoinZ, BitcoinGold and Aion.
2nd best and 3rd best GPUs in Q1
So in the Olympic Games of Q1 for best performing GPU we now know who the Gold Medal went to. However there is still a Silver Medal and a Bronze Medal left to be awarded.
The GeForce RTX 2060 came in second with an average uplift of about 84 % closely followed by the GeForce RTX 2070 with an average uplift of about 70 %. You really can’t turn your nose up at those figures either!
So now let’s have a look at which coins our second and third best GPU spent their hashing power on. Nicehash-X16R, Ravencoin, Nicehash-Ethash, Aeternity, Grin, BitcoinZ, Aion, BitcoinGold, Zcoin were mined by the GeForce RTX 2060, whereas the GeForce RTX 2070 dedicated its calculating force on Nicehash-X16R, Ravencoin, Nicehash-Ethash, Aeternity, Grin, BitcoinGold, BitcoinZ.
We are really happy that MiningOptimizer lives up to our expectations and in combination with the right GPUs by far surpassed the 30 – 50 % uplift we are guaranteeing our customers.
