Gigabyte GTX 1060 3GB Crypto Mining Benchmarks: ETH/ZEC/XMR

Today i show you the first card of the Mining Benchmark Series, The Gigabyte GTX 1060 3GB did not shock me with the low performance it had on mining coins like Ethereum, ZCash and Monero. It seems not to be worth the $219.99!

    Can you benchmark the rx 470 4gb and 8gb? My friend is saying he's pulling 22-30 mh/s stock bios, at 60 degrees centigrade.

  • Robert Hintermeier

    I think 19.8 Mhs isn't too bad. I got "lucky" and bought 20 evga gtx 1060 3gb cards. All have Hynix memory and aren't even capable of mining stable at 19 Mhs. I have to lower the memory offset to - 200 core and 400 memory at 80% power target to get them stable. After having stability issues when mining ubiq with 12 cards rig using SMOS i switched to windows 10 but get only 7 pcs running but not even stable. Pretty annoying stuff. It surely was a waste of money. I should have stick with amd cards which may consume more power but once they are bios modded and running they are pretty stable. Any good alternative mining os? I didn't try ethOS or pimp and easyMINE os yet.

    i have an fx-8320 and a gtx-670 and on monero i get, with 6 cores on cpu about 120h/s and card about 300h/s, and my rig is 4yrs old, how can this be?

  • Mazaribeiro

    Welcome to the Hinyx world lol.

  • SCZaka

    Hi BuriedOne! What about GTX 1060 6GB. For Monero I got with Power Limit 105, Coreclock +110, Mem Clock +600 = 538 H/s Average. I think 500+ H/s is very very good tho.

  • Anuar Ali

    Gigabyte 1060 3g - eth=24 mh, zec=310s, xmr=520h. Memory +700

  • Aqdw Muhagungr

    plis tutor mod bios use Hex Editor :)

  • PC Gamex

    sorry but i disagree.. if you have to have this card you should be mining anything apart from ethereum. go for zcash and anything in nicehash. use to nicehash profitability. there you'll see the profit over electricity consumption better than the gtx 1060 6gb, rx 580 and any other expensive cards.

  • Mindaugas Zilius

    core+70 memory+600 I got 280-305sol

  • loden888

    you are lucky to get 19.8 on these. I have 4 Gigabyte 1060 3gb cards from them and got only 18.7 stable.

  • Booostedgti

    How much do you make a day with 1 1060?

  • ghkbeetle

    I think your resumee about the etherium is wrong. I run several cards of this Gigabyte 3GB 1060 OC versions. Using Claympore DualMiner 10 I do get 24.5 - 24.8mhs @ 70-75 Watt per card when I do use following settings in MSI Afterburner:CV +11; PL 54; TL 80; CC +160; MC +850. No reboots, no restarts since more than a month on 8 cards (Samsung Memory)

  • Khalid Al-Ghamdi

    Please benchmark it with 100 power limit

  • theRickmeister3

    now costs $365 on amazon

  • Random Youtuber

    Heated pool part 6! Plz

  • paolo Renzetti

    I hope you all lose an absurd amount of money just for driving the prices up on graphics cards.

  • Brian

    so the 1060 6g is the way to go but is there one brand that just uses samsung or is it a crap shoot with all brands and memory?

  • Pohodacik 007

    my Gigabyte gtx 1060 - 6 gb is like my EVGA gtx 1060 sc - 6 gb (ETH ZEC).. no diference in HR.. just EVGA is much noisy..

  • Aaron Armstrong Skomra

    Great idea for a video series but you have to say you memory and driver version or it's not as useful as a benchmark.

  • jäänu

    What are you mining right now? The most coins are not very profitable right now....

  • bear northpole

    It all comes down to hashes per watt.

  • Theodor Ghannam

    Going to add in here, My friend built an 8 GPU 1060 3GB rig, with 5 gigabytes (one reviewed here) and 3 MSI all are Hynix memory. OC'ed to 100 core/+500 Memory and they all do 19Mh/s-18mh/s, He has his running ETH+DCR for a total fo 144Mh/s 3500DCR 100w(TDP per card).

  • c.o.a d

    My 1060 3gb asus give ~300-315 sol/s on zcash 250/460 clock +110 PL

  • anton72000

    I have a problem. I don't know i should buy a GTX 1060 3GB or GTX 1060 6GB. I will upgrade my rig for the profit. Which one will goes fastest to i can reinvest?. @BuriedONE Cryptomining

  • Imran shah

    Then which brand card r good for mining in gtx 1060? Which cards r way more better according to you?

  • Silent Killer

    Try using linux, my gtx 1060 makes 24 mh/s

  • Andi Putra

    Dear Rory. How i set payment in your pool. I join just now with 570mh/s. Or is it daily payment. Thanks. I look everywhere i still can't find how to set minimum payment. Thanks. Goodluck with the pool.

  • Jessie Evangelista

    hey! its a known issue that 1060 cards with memory other than samsung and micron will perform poorly on ethash.

  • christophe malgogne

    Be careful with this gigabyte card. After four days it explode and cost me my RIG. It's a very short card, light, it have bad performance and it's dangerous. The gtx1060 armor 3GB with Samsung memory was very good but because of this gigabyte s**t I loose everything in the fire, I nearly lost my house

  • Cynical Fox

    dont mine please your ruining the pc parts market D:

  • shawn meira


  • BuriedONE Crypto Mining

    It was s*** Hynix Memory

  • Meherab Hossein

    How do you bench mark coins?any tutorials that I can follow?

  • void

    why do people even use 1060 for ETH mining? it's pretty useless from the start. RX580 makes approx. 30mh/s. which is the same as 1070.

  • Ankush Minhas

    I'm getting 290 Sol/s on my 1060 ( hynix ) ! core:+150 , memory:+500+ & TDP:65%

  • Alireza Mortazavi

    overclock the mem and you'll be surprised !

  • Geebin Inc

    You're supposed to downclock the core for ETH, homie.Try -128/+756 for ETH. You'll get better results. Probably around 22 to 23Mh/s

  • Ardent Winston

    Hi..i need your advice on OC'ing my GPU ...I'm using zotac GTX 1070 mini 8 GB for mining. I need a stable OC values with temp limits to mine zcash..pls help out..

  • Xavi Sanch

    Dude, like miners we have a big problem called Metropolis... The last hardfork of ethereum which includes a great bomb of difficulty and the reduction of the reward by block to 3 ETH... So this hardfork coming too fast just a couple of week i think, what to do with ours GPU when that happen?
