Cryptocurrency Mining GPU Selector
June 1, 2020
Maximize your mining profitability. Simply enter your graphics card budget and maximum number of graphics cards and then select "Run." It will show you the type and number of graphics cards that you should use to mine each cryptocurrency with maximum profitability. The cryptocurrencies with a green background are profitable, but the ones with a red background are not and should not be mined with the entered budget and/or number of cards.
Select the coin name or corresponding hash algorithm in the left half of each row to see the profitability details in the Whattomine calculator. And if you want to see a list of video cards of an optimal card type, just select the card name or corresponding number of cards in the right half of each row. It will direct you to the relevant section of our GPU Guide.
The electricity cost can be varied if known. This is an important factor in mining profitability.
The maximum number of video cards (GPUs) can be spread over more than one system or motherboard. For example, if you have two motherboards capable of supporting 6 graphics cards each, then you would enter 12 as your maximum number of graphics cards. This of course assumes that you are willing to operate more than mining rig at the same time.
