EVGA GTX 1070 Ti SC Gaming Black Edition – Mining Performance and Review


GTX 1070 Ti GPUs are probably the best choice for someone who wants to start small. Beefy enough to give you a noticeable flow of cryptos yet affordable enough, the 1070 Ti GPU might the best choice in several situations.

Its architecture and configuration is very similar to the GTX 1080 (GP 104 GPC family, amount of transistors, core config, L2 cache, core clock, etc) but not to the GTX 1080 Ti, which has more similarities with the NVIDIA TITAN X (GP 102 GPC family). In fact, the GTX 1070 Ti has more similarities with the GTX 1080 than with the GTX 1070, especially when it comes to mining performance.

Past days I have been testing the GTX 1070 Ti SC Gaming by EVGA. I’ve assembled a small rig and have been trying different clocks and software to see what this card is capable of. The amount of produced noise and heat was low enough to make it a viable choice for home mining, so I thought this setup could be interesting to those of you who are mining at home.

Why SC Gaming

EVGA alone has got four 1070 Ti models to choose from and I believe the 1070 Ti SC Gaming is the best choice. The card features decent clocks, rugged fans and a fair price. Other models stand close but aren’t quite as good.

For instance the FTW ULTRA SILENT edition is more expensive, as well as it takes more space (3 slots instead of 2). This is obviously a downside since smaller GPUs are easier to set up on a way to ensure better airflow inside the rig. Unless you have a custom rig frame and USB risers you won’t be able to assemble a rig of six, or even four FTW GPUs.

In brief, as for today the GTX 1070 Ti SC Gaming is the best option.

EVGA GTX 1070 Ti SC Gaming Mining Performance

Let me anticipate that this model performs rather well with Equihash algorithms, especially compared to the GTX 1070. It even can get you a couple hundreds of bucks worth of Ethereum per year, though personally I don’t consider that coin a decent mining alternative.

EVGA GTX 1070 Ti SC Gaming Black Edition Mining Rig Build

In Conclusion

After few days of testing I can say that the GTX 1070 Ti SC is a great GPU for home mining. It is a small investment and it pays off really well. You can use it for gaming and other GPU-intensive tasks in your spare time. It offers a lot of room for overclocking as well as undervolting, making it a very power-efficient GPU.
