It looks like consumers are already getting their hands on the beastly Nvidia Titan V graphics card, merely days after its official launch. One consumer in particular is YouTuber BitsBeTrippin’ who managed to test the insanely powerful graphics card on its performance in cryptocurrency mining; and the results are indeed rather interesting.
For those out of the loop, Nvidia’s Titan V is the company’s most powerful PC-based graphics card that is based on the company’s new Volta GPU architecture. Folks at GamersNexus have managed to tear open the Titan V and it was discovered that the Titan V uses the GV100-400 GPU specifically.
But that aside, when it comes to cryptocurrency mining performance, the Nvidia Titan V managed to output 750 SOL at 221W for running Zcash. When overclocked, the numbers jump up significantly to 877 SOL at 244W. In Monero, the Titan V had recorded a performance rate of 1,224 H/s at 157W and around 1,417 H/s at 165W when overclocked. The Nvidia Titan V even outperformed an overclocked Radeon RX Vega 64 graphics card in Ethereum mining as well.
Of course, it has to be noted that using the Titan V solely for cryptocurrency mining isn’t exactly financially wise. One has to remember that this graphics card does come with an eye opening price tag of US$2,999 (around RM12,222). Despite this, the performance of the Titan V and the Volta GPU does provide us with an indicator of what’s to come next from Nvidia for its mainstream products.
