Mining XMR Monero With AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition Cards

Postby Apoptosis » Tue Jan 02, 2018 8:25 am

AMD Radeon RX Vega graphics cards do very well on the CryptoNight proof-of-work algorithm and miners are using them to mine Monero, Electroneum, Sumokoin, Bytecoin and Karbo. This is because the profitability is better on those coins than Ethereum that uses the Ethash proof-of-work algorithm. It’s tough to find an AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 or AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 graphics card due to this. That is why we turned to the readily available AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition to do some manual labor in the mines.

I was wondering for a while how can AMD cards be so ugly with stock shrouds? I mean these are just ugly boxes with a loud fan.

Really? This color blue in person is amazing. I like the cards looks, but I totally agree about the loud fan. Running it manually at 3500 RPM makes them heard across my entire house.
