Cryptocurrency Mining on the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti with NiceHash

No in depth analysis this month, just playing around with my new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti and cryptocurrency mining with NiceHash.  For this test the card was in my home server out in the garage which is running Windows server 2016 without any monitor/display connected.

First up the benchmarking detail across all available algorithms, note that I had to install/update the .Net 2015 redistributable in order to run several of them.

As you’ll see in the video I had a window running with NVIDIA-SMI which gives GPU utilization, temperature and wattage of the card.

I had this running as a batch file (script) running in a loop that refreshes every 5 seconds, here is the script if you’d like to utilize something similar in your testing:

@echo off
:start
cls
"c:\Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation\NVSMI\nvidia-smi.exe"
choice /n /t 5 /d y
goto start

I hope you find this interesting, and please do share in the comments your experiences or if you have any questions.

Happy mining,
