GPU shopping


#1

I picked up a cheap rig I plan on turning into a burst mining rig, I plan on using the GPU to scan the drives, so how do i pick the best GPU to do it? I read somewhere about a R9 280X scanning 102TB in 13secs. so what makes the 280X that great? is it the GPU Clock, Memory Clock, Memory Bus?

It’s a combination of things. You’ll first want to look for gpu clock speeds of course, but a gpu has 1 job, to process. This could be due to memory of the card, or possibly memory of the machine. I don’t GPU mine. the cpu is just fine mining.
