GeForce RTX 1080 Mining Ethereum Classic ETC Review

Ethereum Classic ETC Mining On GeForce RTX 1080

Outstanding graphics performance from the Nvidia GTX 1080 propels it to the top of the single GPU world.

Nvidia’s GTX 1080 is a top-tier graphics card that debuted in May 2016. Prior to the introduction of the 1080 Ti, it had been the company’s top offering for almost a year. The graphics card’s 8GB of GDDR5X memory serves as its primary feature. It performs similarly to the brand-new GeForce RTX 2060 and AMD’s Radeon RX Vega 64.

The card initially had problems with Windows 10 mining, which resulted in absurdly low hash rates. These problems were resolved eventually. Miners draw attention to the graphics card’s propensity for overheating. It is not surprising that some cards include two or three fans.
