11 Best Ethereum Mining Hardware Comparison (2017)

So you want to mine ethereum? Then definitely you have a question in your mind that what is the best ethereum mining hardware /GPU you can use to mine ethereum efficiently.

If you are thinking that most powerful miner gives you more profit then wait there is many more factors to be considered like how much electricity it consuming, ROI (Return on investment) and etc.

I am not saying that most powerful GPU will not give you profit but here I am talking about the most efficient hardware, which has lower cost, good mining power and consuming less electricity.

So in this article, I am comparing 8 best and most efficient hardware to find out which is most profitable hardware to mine ethereum.

Before Jumping to the comparison just read the brief introduction about GPU ethereum mining given below

So what is GPU ethereum miner?

GPU or graphics Processing unit are mostly used for gaming and other high end works. But after introduction cryptocurrency mining, miners started using GPU to mine cryptocurrency like bitcoins, ethereum, litecoins etc.

You can also mine all the cryptocurrency with CPU but they are not powerful enough to make a single penny in a week.

So let’s dig in the comparison.

In this comparison firstly I am listing the most powerful ethereum mining hardware / GPU and then I am comparing them all on the basis of 4 factors i.e

1. Cost

2. Mining Power/ Hash Rate

3. Electricity consumption

4. Return on Investment (ROI)

After considering all the factor, I am finding out the most efficient GPU miner to mine ethereum to make huge profit.

Note: Some of the listed GPU might be out of stock from the online store due to high demand in the mining community.

So Here is the list of Most Powerful miner available in the market

 

AMD Radeon R9 295X2

AMD Radeon R9 295X2 is the most powerful ethereum mining GPU available in the market till date. It maximum mining power is 40 Mh/s for mining ethereum. It will cost you about $$$$. But the bad thing with this GPU is that it is mostly out of stock on Amazon and other sites, I think because of the high demand of this GPU in a mining community. SO if you are lucky enough to get it then it good if not don’t worry there are many more options you can go with.

1. Price: $$$$

2. Mining Power/ Hash Rate: 46Mh/s

3. Electricity consumption: 420W-466W

4. Profit Per Day: $ 1.52

5. Profit Per Month:$ 45.50

6. Return on Investment (ROI): About 2 Years

So I had listed the 11 best ethereum mining hardware available in the market. Which will you buy to start mining? If you decided then wait I had to find out the best GPU to mine ethereum efficiently to gain more profits.

By considering 4 factors i.e

1. Cost

2. Mining Power/ Hash Rate

3. Electricity consumption

4. Return on Investment (ROI)

I had found out that using 3 of Sapphire R9 290 gives you mining power of whooping 75 Mh/s. 

If you are planning to buy a hardware for ethereum mining, I will personally suggest you go with Sapphire R9 290. It has a very good mining rate and the ROI is about 7 month which worth of buying.

But if don’t want to build a mining rig and just want to mine ethereum with single GPU I will suggest you to go with  AMD Radeon R9 295X2, as it is the most powerful mining hardware available in the market.

Disclosure: Mining metrics are calculated based on a network hash rate of 109,271 GH/s and using an ETH – USD exchange rate of 1 ETH =306.01. Block reward is fixed at  ETH and future block reward reductions are not taken into account. The average block time used in the calculation is 15 seconds. The electricity price used in generating these metrics is $ 0.074 per kWh.
