So I haven’t mined for a while since 2018 or 2019. With the current state of the market what would be a better budget GPU? I only plan on getting one GPU right now. Rx 580s 8gb is about $80-100 cheaper than 1660 super 6gb. I know the 1660 has gddr6 vs the 580s gddr5. Which would you go for?
I vote AMD u should look at RX 5700 and maybe wait a few months for next gen to release an d that should lower prices of older models a bit also
have any speculation on when the new AMD cards are coming out? I thought about the 5700 but the price right now is too steep for me. However, I also dont want to pick up a 580 if these are on their way out? I know theyre old now but they seem to still be mining well
They are still doing well if you can get it for the right price.
Ive been researching and read comments of someone saying “8GB AMD GPUs will also break with the 4GB epoch due to the drivers. They can’t load a file into memory that is larger than 4GB.” is there any trurth to this? My bad for the questions, maybe i should consider a newer card?
I haven’t had any issues with this and I am running 4 RX 5700 MSI Mech OC and 1 RX 5700 XT Asrock Challenger.
If u can find a 1660 for around the same price as a 580 then I’d do a 1660 mine out performs my 580 8gb but I’ve been recently scooping used 580’s for 50$
does your 1660 use the same wattage as your 580?
preferably i want a 1660 super but i haven’t found any for a good price. Theyre going for about $220-250 right now and a new 580 is about $180. I say new because I havent seen any used 8gb 580s online for under $120. I think i might just spend more for the 1660, if anything itll be easier to sell i think
