The Current Table With The Hash Rate Of Video Cards For 2021
2021 continued the mining trend. The number of crypto miners continues to grow steadily. At the same time, the leaders of interests remain the same, as in the past 5 years – Bitcoin and Ethereum. If the last coin is still somehow trying to get with the help of traditional video cards, then for the #1 cryptocurrency ASICs have been used for a long time. Although, GPUs are still in demand among the miners. Therefore, let’s look at the data on the hash rate of video cards relative to popular mining algorithms.
What’s going on with the equipment now
Bitcoin mining remains stable and predictable in terms of hardware selection. It’s because there are no dizzying changes in ASIC devices, and each new generation of equipment only improves the features of the previous ones.
At the same time, the situation with crypto mining through video cards is not so stable. So, in 2020, “red” and “green” video cards entered the market with much higher energy efficiency than the 2019 GPUs. Moreover, there is an increasing stratification of “miners” into two camps – users of their equipment and users of cloud services. And this division is evident at the border of 5 Gb of RAM (the minimum amount for Ethereum mining).
The crypto market understands this limitation and constantly offers new coins focusing on powerful GPU – Octopus, Cortex, GRIN, and others. However, older projects also continue to struggle for the attention of miners with less powerful cards. So, Ethereum Classic switched to the new ETCHash algorithm. Therefore, the coin can again be mined on video cards with 4 Gb of video memory or less. Also worth mentioning is the VertCoin hard fork, which also received its algorithm called Verthash.
At the same time, ETH is no longer available for mining on low-power GPUs. But this is not the only unpleasant surprise. The hash rate on Nvidia Geforce GTX 1000 series cards started to decrease gradually in the past year. Now the GTX 1080Ti can deliver 50MH/s, and even then when the GPU frequency is raised to the maximum. The GTX 1060/1070/1080 also has similar problems. And the downward trend will continue as the Ethereum era rises.
Mining software developers also don’t stand aside. They regularly add fuel to the fire by adding new functions and constantly improving the program code. Therefore, the owners of the mining equipment always have to keep fit. So, version 0.8.0 of the popular TeamRedMiner has significantly improved hash rates when mining Ethereum on AMD cards. This came as a surprise to many miners and other crypto people since the ETHash algorithm has been used for 6 years, and no fundamental changes were expected.
Now let’s look at the data on the speed of mining digital currencies on “red” video cards..

The secret of the high performance of AMD GPUs based on the Ethash algorithm is the competent change in RAM timings.
You also need to consider that in 2021, Ethereum mining on RX470/480/570/580 cards is not possible. It’s all because the DAG file has grown too much.
Available software for mining on AMD graphics cards
As you can see, mining of cryptocurrencies on “red” video cards is entirely possible. To do this, you can use the following types of programs:
- for Ethash: Claymore`s Dual mining, Ethermine, Phoenix miner, TeamRedMiner;
- for Zhash and Beam: Lolminer, Bminer;
- for Grin: Bminer, Gringoldminer, acegrinminer, gminer, lolminer;
- for ProgPOW: progpowminer amd, ethminer;

*Mining speed limited by Nvidia drivers
Attention! Some Nvidia GPUs will have a drop in hash rate during Ethereum mining throughout 2021. It applies to GTX 1060/1070/1070Ti/1080/1080Ti cards. The drop in mining speed is associated with low GPU power and an increase in the size of the DAG file.
Available software for mining on Nvidia video cards
Crypto mining through “green” video cards is available on the following programs:
- for Ethash: Claymore`s Dual mining, Ethermine, Pheonix miner, Bminer;
- for CryptonightR: CryptoDredge, XMRIG-Nvidia, XMR Stack;
- for Zhash: Bminer, Gminer, lolminer, miniZ, Funakoshi miner;
- for Beam: Bminer, Gminer, lolminer;
- for GRIN: acegrinminer, bminer, gminer, nbminer, gringoldminer;
- for ProgPOW: Progpowminer Nvidia, ethminer;
- for KawPow: NBminer, Gminer, kawpowminer.
Let’s sum it up. Despite the drop in the hash rate for Ethereum mining, miners have many opportunities to get crypto coins. After all, new algorithms constantly appear that allow you to mine crypto even on relatively low-power graphic cards. It remains only to decide on the choice of an asset and start mining.
