Gigabyte RTX 2080 Ti Mining Performance Review


Few days ago I have tested and reviewed in-depth the RTX 2080 card. The results ended up being pretty promising thanks to the its excelent MHs/W ratio. Today, I would like to share with you my findings regarding the RTX 2080Ti – will it be as good as the 2080?

I would like to give a big shout out to the guys from Gigabyte for sending me an RTX 2080 Ti for testing purposes. Apparently, card manufacturers like the idea of miners buying their cards, which is indeed good for the mining community. This might also mean that Nvidia will probably release mining-oriented drivers and cards in the near future.

RTX 2080Ti vs RTX 2080

Compared to the 2080, the 2080Ti has got 40% wider memory bus, 3GB more VRAM, 47% more CUDA cores and slightly lower core clocks. On paper, the 2080 Ti is about 50% more powerful than the 2080, which makes sense considering the price is 50% higher too. Raw numbers do not always affect the mining performance as expected, so we will compare benchmarks in a bit.

The 2080 Ti has got 30% higher power consumption than the 2080, though it also features higher power limit. My RTX 2080Ti allows me to drag the power limit down to 60% before it starts losing hashrate. The 2080 can work without any hashrate loses even when power limit is at 47%.

RTX 2080 Ti Mining Hashrate

As expected, on factory clocks the 2080Ti features 42% higher Ethereum hashrate than the 2080 (on factory clocks too). The same difference applies to other algos. After some undervolting and overclocking, the 2080Ti generates 36% higher Ethereum hashrate than the 2080.

Dual mining offers the same results: With tweaked clocks and voltages, the 2080Ti features 37% higher hashrate on both coins than the 2080 with the relative increase in power consumption. Here are all the other benchmarks:

In Conclusion

While the 2080 Ti is a decent miner, the 2080 offers slightly more value for the money. The 2080Ti has got more cores and memory, though as for today, it does not seem to be able use all of its potential for mining. Maybe Nvidia will release some optimized drivers in the near future that will allow the 2080Ti to mine better. I am not discarding this option because again, apparently card manufacturers seem to like the idea of the mining community buying their cards.
