Which one delivers more coins per watt?

AMD or Nvidia? And am I right when I think that always the newest generation of a card is the best for mining?

  • IMHO this question is too broad. Choose specific cards to compare. – sgp Oct 10 '16 at 20:53

In terms of raw performance, Nvidia and AMD compare favorably. Once electricity usage is factored in, Nvidia wins out with far higher efficiency in the current round of technology.

In terms of Nvidia cards, the GTX 1070 seems to be at a good price/performance/efficiency inflection point.

    On the very link you shared, the RX 470 and RX 480 seem to be more efficient. – sgp Oct 10 '16 at 20:55
  • Indeed, they are slightly more efficient. The 1070 is comparable though and much faster for gaming, so depending upon what you use the card for I think you'll get more bang for your buck for the newer nvidia 1070. – Ivan Brightly Oct 14 '16 at 0:42
