Well I just started mining. But ... my 3 cards added together, 1080ti x2 plus 1070 puts out roughly half or a little more than half of what a TitanV can do. I am pending price fluctuations and my personal mining tempo, due for about 550-700 range this month, with a Titan V thrown on top of that I could be making 1500 +- or even more a month. In two months at that rate the mining would pay for the Titan and then its straight profit.I'm curious what the heck you're mining that would justify spending that much on one card.
I'd love to have one for gaming, I guess, but I'm not seeing the case being made for using it to mine cryptocurrency. Like, it's fast, yeah, but it doesn't sound like it's $3K fast, unless you're really, really desperate.
For instance since yesterday at around 4pm until the timestamp of posting this I made $22 USD in coin. Even with the market losing value today slightly. Adding a Titan V would gain me, the $22.00 from my existing 3 GPUs and then another $30-35 USD on top of that for a (hypotethical) 50+ USD a day. Multiply that times 30, pending stability, thats about $1500/month or $18,000/yr minus around $45/mon power bill extra. I could add more and more cards as time moves on to the point of making double that in a year. All in a coin that is backed by nothing at all, but then again, what is the US Dollar backed by? Nothing. Exactly.
I have much to learn though. From what I can see even dedicated ASIC, like the Baikal units can generate at current prices around 8k/month in coin but ... their like $15,000 an ASIC. Thats a massive risk for small timers but nothing but a drop in the bucket for corporate miners. And from what I can tell there are no dedicated ASIC's worth a shit at the sub $5000 level.
