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.
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.
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.
