GTX 1660 and 1660 Ti mining benchmarks: tuning, overclocking and hashrate

What to mine with 1660 SUPER, the most profitable algorithm

When the equipment is purchased and assembled in the rig, you need to determine the coin to mine. Of course, you need to calculate the benefits of mining in advance, but the cost of cryptocurrencies on exchanges constantly fluctuates, so you need to constantly monitor the market in search of the most profitable option. To create a profitability table for cryptocurrencies, open the WhatToMine mining calculator.

Important!!! While Big Ether costs more than 1000 US dollars per coin, it remains the most profitable altcoin for mining on almost any graphics adapter model. When Vitalik Buterin’s project completes the transition to the new network, the green gpu miners will have several rather lucrative areas of work left in stock. First of all, this is the new Conflux (CFX) smart contract blockchain platform, as well as the MTP algorithm and all MimbleWimble forks.

Bitcoin and Ethereum have great growth potential and it is probably not worth converting them to fiat even at the current rather high price. It makes no sense to launch Cryptonight8 mining on 1660 after XMR left this algorithm. You can get good income from mining on the 1660 Ti cryptocurrency RYO (cryptonight-gpu) and Haven.

But the most relevant at the moment is mining Ethereum… Use T-rex and Phoenix Miner mining software. However, tomorrow a new, more profitable option may appear. Keep your finger on the pulse of events.
