After the 480 hits the market you'll start to see pricing/reviews/benchmarks.
Then you'll have a better idea of what direction to go.
Hey, I have been running goldminer for a couple months.
For those who don't know it, it is a windows app that allows you to share your computing power with a network called Ethereum.
Application developers who are running apps on this network pay for that, and you can get a pretty decent share of what they are paying depending on your hardware (the most important is the GPU).
I've been doing quite well so far, as I have been earning approximately 95-130 $ per month with my R9 290x which paid itself back three times already. It has run smoothly for several months without any issues.
I want to make a bit more (eheh that's free money basically , so I would like to buy a new GPU.
As the 480 is coming out soon, with a pretty nice price tag, I was wondering how much it would make, by comparing its computing power to the 290x. I know what matters is the number of computing units and their clock, while memory clock and bandwith don't matter much.
Also, the 14nm would mean less power usage, as I currently spend 1/4 of what I earn on the bill :haha: it would be even better to increase the profit on that point. I also guess that overclocking will be crazy on this card.
What do you think ? Thanks
