HiveOS Best Ethereum Miner for NVIDIA

This article will provide you with a benchmark information on best Ethereum miners on HiveOs for your Nvidia GPU card. For our benchmark we have considered all currently available crypto miners on HiveOS, namely: Ethminer, Bminer, lolminer, Phoenixminer, T-rex, Gminer, Nbminer, Nanominer and TT-miner.

In this tutorial you will learn:

  • Best Ethereum Miner based on hash rate speed
  • Best Ethereum Miner based on mining efficiency

Benchmark Results

Based on our tests the best Ethereum miner with a highest efficiency is Nbminer. This particular miner scored 461.22H and at the same time performed second in terms of the fastest hash-rate.

When it comes to the miner with a fastest hash rate the best score, even though marginally belongs to T-Rex miner with a hash rate of 98.26MH.

Although, the miner benchmark results for the rest of the miner are marginal, they might make significant difference on a large scale deployment.

The Hashrate/Watt efficiency is a ratio between power usage and hash generation. Here, you need to make a choice based on the power cost. The higher the watt/hash efficiency ration the greater hash generation per 1 Watt.
To calculate your mining efficiency you first need to obtain hashrate and watt values. Once ready simply divide hashrate with number of Watts used. For example if your hashrate is 20.05MH with Watt usage 74W your efficiency is: ( 20.05/74 ) * 1000 = 270.9K hash per Watt
