    Mining on Mining Pool Hub with a Cryptonight hashrate of 263kh/s. Each of my Vega FE's and Vega 64 can do a little over 2kh/s each Hash power wise, I am looking at 130 Vega 64s for this algorithm on this one ASIC at 480w, which is less power than my 3 Vega's combined. While that may sound great, others who also have ASICs drive up the difficulty level for the coins it can mine, making GPU's not able to effectively mine those coins. Down side - Noisy! I may have to build a sound proofing box.

    Keeping the two Vega FE's and Vega 64 - Still can mine Monero profitably, game, plus 3d work. I stopped mining on the 1070s and 1080TIs. Keeping the 1080TIs, not sure about the 1070s.

    He did say Monero. That is the coin, brah. Otherwise, I honestly don't know what other profitable coins can be mined, I'm sure there is a bunch out there. Maybe someone from the forums can say, maybe google-fu can say...

    Facepalm for obvious reasons.

    the OP mentioned monero on his vega gpu cards, not the miner.

    are you sure that thing can mine monero? i just plugged in 263kh/s into a calculator for monero and it's showing $157/day?! that can't be right? if so, i'm gonna go buy me a few too.

    so this thing can mine cryptonightV7?

    You quoted the wrong person. This ASIC cannot mine V7, nor does there appear any coins on MPH that are the old-CN. I have no idea what noko and serial are talking about.

    Monero is a dead cat, you should just sell your old, outdated vegas to me instead.
