Forbes picks up on the Mining Wars: Nvidia Is About To Steal The Cryptocurrency Mining Crown From AMD

(confer however with the ati curse mentioned earlier regarding the 750ti) and as my friend pointed out, with a high tier maxwell in the wings, it may be that the cost savings would not make up for capital switch costs til we have an idea of the maxwell high tier data.

Nvidia has unveiled its GTX 750 ti, its budget graphics card at $149 that is supposed to play Titanfall better than the Xbox One. But this card is making waves for cryptocoin miners not because of its Titanfall gaming capabilities, but because it should be able to reach 300 kh/s at a wattage draw of 60w. Assuming the numbers hold, this makes it the best graphics card by power efficiency to mine litecoins and dogecoins at the moment (scryptcoins) and also the other ASIC proof encryption algorithms (…

Was making a new site at Update: Seems that Sim Lim is out of 7950s and 7970s, although you may find one hidden here and there With the recent run up in Litecoin to match with its previous rate with bitcoin before bitcoin's very rapid recent ascent, it has become once again very feasible to mine litecoins on scrypt with top end graphics cards.
