In this video we compare which GPU is better for Ethereum or other cryptocurrency mining.
We are comparing the ASUS STRIX RX580 and Sapphire Nitro+ RX580 vs the Sapphire Nitro+ RX480
The videos shows that the best performer is the Sapphire Nitro+ RX480 as it can mine at the same
rate as the RX580s but uses less power and it’s much cheaper. The downside is that the card is extremely
hard to find online as a lot of people have purchased the card to mine cryptos.
The next best option is the Sapphire Nitro+ RX580 it mines at the same rate as the RX480 but uses a
bit more power but the card is easier to obtain than the Sapphire Nitro+ RX480.
The last option is to get the ASUS strix RX480 or RX580 the RX480 uses less power but the same problem
applies to this model as it’s very hard to obtain. The RX580 is easier to obtain but uses more power.
Modifying the BIOS on the RX480 and RX580 is essentially the same process and a new video will be posted
detailing the process.

What is Ethereum: Ethereum is a new type of crypto currency similar to bitcoin but it has more uses than
bitcoin which is why some users are dubbing it Bitcoin 2.0.
1. Ethereum can only be mined with GPUs
Chinese ASIC miners used for bitcoin mining will not work!
2. Ethereum has the ability to create smart contracts
Basically you can have multiple transactions in one block on the blockchain
3. Ethereum transactions are lighting quick compared to bitcoin
sending money / receiving money is much faster
4. Ethereum can be used to create smart applications that can live forever on the blockchain
No one can take your app down like (Google / Apple / Government)
There’s a lot more to ethereum but it seems to be a very promising technology for the future.
