Okay, so we've got this awesome NVIDIA RTX A6000 GPU let's do some serious deep
learning on this, and have a look…. Oh wait, you guys want to see CyberPunk
2077. Okay, well I did a whole video on that. The short answer is the frame rate with
this high-end GPU and 4K output is above 70. Okay so we've answered that we've done CyberPunk
2077, now we can do some deep learning, right? Ethereum?? What's Ethereum?? Okay, it's mining… I mean like Minecraft RTX?
Now, I know what Ethereum is, so let's go ahead. You you've asked me about this a lot of times
in the comments, let's do Ethereum mining on an NVIDIA RTX A6000, and stick around to
the end because at the end we're going to also talk about pizza delivery with a Lamborghini, so
kind of the same concept.
So let's get started. Okay, so here we are I am mining Ethereum using
the RTX A6000 so let's just have a quick look now. I let this run for a bit, so I've mined about
0.0265 Ethereum, at least on my first run of this when I was trying this out last
week. I also mined 0.05 Ethereum, i think that's worth around a hundred dollars.
It's all, it's pretty much in free fall the last few days so we'll see where that goes. If you put
that into dollars it's made about 43 dollars in, i don't know I've had this running maybe a couple
of days testing this out while I was not using this card for anything else.
The overall current
hash rate that I'm getting and this seems to be the key number that everybody is interested in is
81.4 MH/s and I've noticed even on the new NVIDIA CMP cards that are specifically built for
this that is the number that they're that they're quoting. So there it is that is
that's that's the number and you can see what this chart has been doing over over some time
now. Let's talk about this briefly in terms of how I'm running this. I'm not going to do a how to
mined Ethereum video there's a million of those totally recommend, Son of a Tech channel,
if you want to look at that, I followed his guide was quite useful. I modified it a
little bit so we are we are running lolminer, which is you can get that on GitHub and I looked
on i looked on their GitHub repository it's binaries. So okay, we're going to run binaries
that we download from GitHub, what could possibly go wrong? There for cryptocurrency and when you
install this too your virus checker immediately flips out so I ran this in a Docker image, because
i don't trust anybody on this kind of stuff.
I don't trust binaries so it's running in a docker
image that I created specifically for it I'm not going to release that docker image, I am not a
crypto miner and I don't want to maintain it, and I'm sure somebody has a better Docker image
out there that knows more about this than me. So it is basically connecting to this this
mining pool that I have a part of here that is my my wallet's hash, I'm pretty sure it's
safe if you see that I think it's like a public key, nevertheless I'm gonna block that out I don't
see myself doing a lot of Ethereum mining, but 43 bucks I'll at least I'll at least transfer that to
my to somewhere useful. And I mean this this might so the the A6000 as far as using it as a crypto
i mean this is a pretty decent hash rate in terms of a single GPU going at it from what I've read on
So yeah, it's a pretty decent pretty decent crypto miner, really but then let's look at
the estimate it's estimating that USD monthly I'll make about 300 on this minus my my
power cost which I took a look at and it's it's not that bad it's maybe
like 10, 15, 20 by my estimate looking at uh what my local power rate rate.
Is not something I plan on running long long term-ish so I mean I might calculate
that more I'd ultimately compare my power bills probably if I was really going to do
serious with this so at 291 dollars a month to to basically buy my to pay this this GPU
back we're looking at well over a year, uh so that's that's not going to happen and
that's part of the math i think that you do on these GPU cards in terms of how expensive is
the GPU versus does it have enough to to get you to what you're going to need to be profitable
as as a crypto miner and that's why I made the comparison earlier it's like you could buy
a Lamborghini and use it to deliver pizza. They don't care what car you came to the
house in to deliver the pizza now maybe you could be an Uber driver and because I've been
picked up by some some pretty expensive cars in in Uber and I think that makes some degree of sense
because they can get a premium level, I forget what it's called, in Uber you probably wouldn't
want to have a Lamborghini as an Uber car because I don't think you're going to ever make that back.
But, if you're somebody who, I don't know has a nice Lexus or Mercedes or something like that
and you want to earn some extra money on Uber, then yeah perhaps perhaps it makes it makes
sense and that's what I could see on this is if you're a deep learning person and
like me and you've got this this GPU, that sometimes maybe a week or so during during
the work week when I don't have a lot of time to work on projects.
I could potentially have this
thing mining and see see what it's going to do so it's it holds to the comparison because would
you want all those extra miles on your expensive sports car maybe do I want to potentially
wear this this card out ether mining and and generally I don't think there's
too much of a risk there the card is built to run hardcore on GANs and other things
that I would train it on for potentially a week at a time.
So I'm not too worried there. So
who knows, I mean that could be a potential for for you if you're looking at buying an expensive
card like what a like what the hash rate on a 30, 90 would look like would be interesting.
Okay thank you for watching this video if you are a crypto miner probably subscribing
to my channel won't do much for you but if you're interested in deep learning artificial
intelligence and other things like that please subscribe to my YouTube channel and think about
giving my channel a like, thank you very much..
