A cryptocurrency miner from Russia, known by the nickname ProTON, has published an updated document on the profitability of various video cards, taking into account the current realities of the crypto market. The absolute outsider in terms of self-sufficiency turned out to be the Radeon RX 6900 XT – its relatively low (compared to Nvdia flagships) price does not compensate for the low performance in Ethereum mining. And taking into account the current fall in quotes on the crypto market, it turns out that the Radeon RX 6900 XT bought for 160,000 rubles will return the funds spent on it only after 38 months. Perhaps it is because of this that the Radeon RX 6900 XT is fairly easy to buy – because it is not as interesting to miners as other 3D cards.
Despite the fact that many miners do not recommend buying the GeForce GTX 1660 Super and GeForce GTX 1660 Ti in 2022 due to the small amount of memory, it is these video cards that, when installed in a rig, will pay off the earliest. However, 28 months is also a long time. But even a year ago, a typical video card in mining could be recouped in 6-8 months.
