Early yesterday morning, we brought you news of a YouTuber that managed to get his hands on one of the first NVIDIA TITAN V graphics cards that was shipped to well-heeled customers. BitsBeTrippin’ slapped the chest thumpin’ Volta-based GPU into an AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X system, cranking out 70 MH/s at stock speeds and 77 MHz while overclocked while drawing 213W and 237W respectively.
We here at HotHardware just so happen to have a TITAN V in house as well, and we are presently running it through our exhaustive battery of benchmarks. However, we were able to extract a few data points for all of you Ethereum miners out there.
Using Claymore Miner (v10.2), we were able to hit 69.06 MH/s at default speeds, far outpacing what’s possible with the current standard-bearer from AMD and the previous generation Pascal-based TITAN Xp. The Radeon RX Vega 64 was well behind with a 37.72 MH/s rate, while the TITAN Xp was virtually tied at 37.45.
However, when we cranked up the GPU and…
