First look at Pascal-based GPU cryptocurrency mining station

Published: Jun 8th 2017, 10:51 GMT   Comments

Today we give you the first pictures of upcoming Pascal GPU mining solution. This system is equipped with eight GP106-100 mining cards, which lack display connectors and are passively cooled.

It’s a full system with Celeron Mobile processor, 4GB DDR3 RAM and 64GB mSata SSD. The power supply is offered optionally, otherwise, 7x 6-pin power connectors are required to run this thing.

We did some experiments with ZEC mining on GTX1080+1080+1070. Such system pulls around 750W from the socket (TDP optimized) with ~1400 Sol/s. This solution requires 1050 Watts for 2500 Sol/s. So it’s 0,5 Sol/s/W better. Not a huge difference, but I guess it all depends on the price. Also, bear in mind these cards (and such system) will have low resale value, unless they find better purpose (Folding@Home?) after GPU mining becomes unprofitable.
