1 Big GPU or 5 Budget GPU for mining ?

From my previous post, We know much about GPU mining its Pros & its Cons. Now, many of you guys had actually started to thinking over investing in a Mining Rig or GPU’s for your PC. So, what will be beneficial to you ? Let’s find out :-

For an example I am going to compare between 1 RTX 3090 & 5 RTX 2060 in terms of mining.

Nvidia RTX 3090 –

  • Hashrate – 122 MH/s
  • Power Consumption (MAX TDP) – 350W
  • Cost – Rs.1,85,000

Nvidia RTX 2060 (X 5) –

  • Hashrate – 32.5 X 5 = 162.5 MH/s
  • Power Consumption (MAX TDP) – 185 X 5 = 925W
  • Cost – Rs.34,000 X 5 = Rs.1,70,000

As you can see (X 5 – RTX 2060) Rig is more affordable and much more profit returning than a single RTX 3090 but power consumption of 5 cards are much higher than single 3090, Which may increase in your electricity consumption or bill.


So, If PSU’s, GPU slots & extra Riser cables are not of your concern than you can go with 5 X RTX 2060 otherwise RTX 3090.
