post #14261 of 22311
I've been reading this on and off for a bit and I've seen some of you posting ±1k/month $ profits, but I've not seen one of you investing in any really serious graphic cards.

I'm not talking about video game level cards here, I'm talking about GRID K1/K2 class cards. Cards that are made to process large calculations.

Has anyone even thought about going server class for minig???

Are you talking about server grade GPU that has ECC RAM?

It's like buying a Xeon for gaming.

Resell value when mining is nolonger profitable will suffer a "bit"...

Dude just go mainstream and rob someones 280x's or something. If you want to invest big, invest in MANY cards imo.

Are you guys sure? Has anyone try installing a Tesla K20 card in their mining rig? These cards are made to do these massive calculations needed in mining.

I have recently posted links to pictures of guys that have at least 100 or more GPU's running in huge rig setups, they have the cash to buy whatever piece of equipment they believe to be most profitable... there's a reason why they stick with "gaming" GPU's and run the numbers of them they do.

I think 15 280x's might do mining better than the K20 mate smile.gif. Youre terribly welcome to try it out if you have one lying around, but I mean jeez, prolly dont want to spend like 5k on a graphicscard for mining.

Not worth it at all.

1x K20 = 3100 USD
5x 290x = 3200 USD ~ 4.8Mh/s
7x 280x = 3200 USD ~ 5.2Mhs

Don't know how much the K20 does, but i think it's in the range of a 780ti.

True I don't have a Tesla K20 just lying arround *I wish* but I'm curious to see one in action and compare it.

I tried running on a quadro. Didn't work at first...until I switched over to a Geforce driver. Ultimately, these cards aren't faster unless they're taken advantage of through meticulously created drivers for specific software suites. Step outside of that zone and they're just expensively downclocked GPU's.
