GTX 1060 6 GB Mining Overview

The 1060 6 gb is the lower end card of the Nvidia 1000 series. It can still mine Ethereum at 22 MH/s drawing 75 watts system.

If you are considering this I would probably also consider the 1080 Ti, It will out perform this and I have seen on reseller at a decent price.

Personally, I would not buy one of these, I would go for the 1080 or Ti at this stage. Mainly due to the fact that they have better profitability on other algorithms.

Mining Hashrates

Lets talk about hashrates, a steady 22 MH/s on Ethereum. I will do a breakdown of the rest of the algorithms in the future.

Mining Overclocks

Next, we will discuss overclocks, please adjust overclocks in small increments to find the ideal sweet spot for your GPU. Some GPUs will perform differently due to the silicone lottery so please do your own research.

Ethash Mining Overclocks

If two numbers are provided, first will be for Windows the second will be for a Linux-based Mining OS.

  • Core Voltage (VDD): NA
  • Power Limit (%): 60% or 125w
  • Power Limit (%): ~60% or 75 (W)
  • Core Clock (CClock): +150
  • Memory Clock (MClock): +700 or 1400
  • Fan Speed (%): 70% ± based on your temps.

Mining Profitability

In this section, I will refer you WhatToMine as I have found there calculator to be useful. Although in this case its referring to an un modded card.
