Hashrate of Ethereum mining using an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070

I’ve been mining Ethereum for the past week or so using an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070. Expensive GPU, but it’s silent in operationruns very quite. In this post, I’ll share with you the hashrate I’ve been getting since I started mining.

I started mining using the Claymore Daul miner on Nanopool, but just using it to mine Ethereum. Hope to give dual-mining a try, but that will have to wait for now.

Figure 1 shows a graph of the mining operation from the Nanopool service. The solid, dark line is the reported hashrate, which is steady at about 26 Mh/s. That’s about the high-end for n Nvidia card with 8 GB of RAM, but slightly less than reported hashrates from similar AMD Radeeon cards.

The same hashrate is shown in Figure 2, taken from the command line of the Ubuntu 16.04 I was using. The value can dip to just over 24 Mh/s, but generally remains just around 26 Mh/s. The maximum temperature I’ve recorded so far is 71 °C, and it generally remains around 66 °C. Fan speed stays around 66%. Except for the few times I had to stop mining, indicated by the v-shaped dip in Figure 1, the card has been stable. Never crashed. I’ll be buying a few more cards to add to the rig, but at the moment, this is a 1-rig mining operation.

  1. Any update on the Ubuntu tutorial with Claymore dual mining ?

  2. Hello friend,

    Very interesting your article, and i am setting up my rig with 6 cards gtx 1070 evga,, and you can tell me where i find a tutorial to set up a linux mining S.O because i am tired to use windows it is very unstable.
    I would like to mining , like yours , thanks Rommel Castro P

  3. how much you made monthly with that card? i’m planning on getting one but I´m not sure if worth it…

    Thanks.

    • The price of eth fluctuates widely, so it’s tough to give a definitive figure. But based on recent prices, the estimate is between $90 to $165.
