The latest graphics card from the manufacturer AMD, the RX 6800, would have significant advantages in terms of performance in digital mining. This model that is about to hit the market, would have 50% superiority in speed compared to its rival from NVIDIA, the RTX 3090.
According to leaked information, this new card seems to have well-marked superiority characteristics. In fact, it would be talking about 50% in terms of performance in cryptocurrency mining over its rival, the powerful GeForce RTX 3090.
It is important to note that not all digital currencies are mined with specialized equipment (ASIC) like the ones we normally see from Bitcoin. It all depends on the algorithm of the referred cryptocurrencies. Thus, for example, the Ethereum currency and many others are mined with cards.
The low cost of AMD’s graphics card
Along with the superiority in performance of AMD’s graphics card over its rival from NVIDIA, its price also stands out. In this sense, taking as true the data of some portals dedicated to the analysis of these computers, the price of the Radeon RX 6800 from AMD is about $ 580.
For its part, the powerful NVIDIA RTX 3090, has an approximate cost of $ 1,500 US dollars. In short, for a much lower cost, the graphics card from AMD produces twice as much cryptocurrency as its counterpart from the manufacturer NVIDIA.
Another aspect to highlight is precisely the amount that these cards generate per month. According to two leading mining profitability calculators, Betterhash and Nicehash, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 is capable of generating between $ 90 and $ 100 a month to miners.
For its part, the AMD Radeon RX 6800 is capable of producing in the order of $ 110 and $ 135 dollars in the same period of time. This is a margin that becomes abysmal if the prices of one and the other are taken into account.
There are some doubts
It is important to note that in the first moments of the announcement of the qualities is the AMD graphics card, there were some doubts. Among them, the limited 256-bit bus of GDDR6 memory stands out, which could make them very unattractive to cryptocurrency miners.
However, a user of the Chinese social network Baidu, who already has an AMD Radeon RX 6800 in his hands, leaked its characteristics. He assured that the speed is 1.5 times higher compared to NVIDIA cards.
This fact could jeopardize their stock due to their low price. In other words, a card that produces more than $ 4 a day in Ethereum, at a price of $ 580 is a very profitable business that, without a doubt, could quickly fall into the hands of speculators as it already happens with NVIDIA products.
The sectors affected by the discovery of the mining qualities of this AMD graphics card are gamers and computer workers. Should there be an increase in demand for the product, they would have few options to access it due to the scarcity and price increase they experience.
No official data
Despite all this analysis collected from social networks, there is no official confirmation of the qualities of the RX 6800. Therefore, it is very likely that this Chinese user could not be telling the truth.
For now, everything boils down to speculation and only on November 18, the card’s launch date, will its ability to mine cryptocurrencies be known exactly.
Data to take into consideration
- The NVIDIA GeForce 3090, has a speed of 110 MH / s. According to the leaked information, the AMD Radeon RX 6800, would have much more.
- The AMD graphics card will be officially launched on November 18.
- According to a user on the Baidu social network, the RX 6800 could generate up to $ 130 per month in ETH.
- The amount would leave behind the NVIDIA RTX 3090, which could generate about $ 100, but its cost is three times higher than the first.
