My 480s are getting 27.1 mh/s, 1050mhz core, 2200mhz mem, and undervolted on both. Pulling about 120w per card.

1070s are still (a lot) more expensive as well, so the ROI would take a lot longer. There's also the minor fact that setting up the OS, drivers, and mining software is more difficult with Nvidia.

I'm sure there are good arguments for picking up 1070s anyway (like if one has access to free electricity), but I can't justify it based on the current metrics.

EDIT: I apologize for the off-topic...

Thank you smile.gif

Seem like folding and mining arent calculating thing the sameways.

Nvidia for folding

AMD for mining

I paid for my 3* 290 and 3* 280x in a month in 2013 with litecoin

I agree. I'm equally annoyed at reviewers running some games at 30FPS and others at 200FPS and then just glueing those results together in a percentage graph that people parrot all over without thinking for a second whether or not it actually makes any sense.
