GPU mining benchmark

Let's take a look at how current generations GPUs, along with a few older ones, perform when put to the task of Dagger Hashimoto algo mining (Ethereum, Ethereum classic, Dubaicoin, Pirl, YoCoin). Cryptocurrency mining enjoy huge popularity and it seems just about everyone wants in on the action. We often wonder what are the best graphics cards to mine with. We decided to find out.

GPU - ranking on ASM algo

Before We start, We should note that performance may differ considerably depending on the software client used, the display driver used, the rom modification client made, and the configuration of the graphics card, so please don't take this too seriously.

Instantly we started testing with Parity but we started to find differing from one another in results and We moved on. Go-ethereum is another very popular client. There is a lot of mining programs but in our opinion best is Claymore's Dual Ethereum miner v. 10 for a few reasons. Most important reason that we choose that client was that Claymore’s Dual worked extremely stable with the current generation AMD and Nvidia GPUs. let’s take a look at the results.
