NVIDIA Tesla V100: $8000 card is the BEST to mine Ethereum (TweakTown)
NVIDIA has one of the best single graphics cards on the market with the Tesla V100, a card that costs a whopping $8000 and isn’t for gamers or even most people on the market. It’s a card destined for workstations and servers, for AI and deep learning workloads – and strictly not for mining. That however doesn’t stop people from testing out these graphics cards for mining, with BuriedONE Cryptomining putting NVIDIA’s Tesla V100 to work on various crypto mining adventures, with Ethereum mining hitting a 94MH/s. Considering that an overclocked TITAN Xp can achieve somewhere around 40-42MH/s and an overclocked Radeon RX Vega 64 can do anywhere between 38-42MH/s, this is a huge achievement for the Tesla V100.
