Welcome to our DC forum.I have a bunch of video cards from mining. I’m downsizing now but wanted to know which to keep as I’ll throw a few in case and let them rip on DC projects. All are nvidia 3070 and up.
What is "best" to run really comes down to a lot of factors. Each project has different needs and the hardware that runs "best" on them can also be different. For example, some projects run better on nVidia cards. Some on AMD because of the implementation of OpenCL. Typically the projects will code their app for one card and then make the app "work" on the others. This produces a little bit of bias in the efficiency and performance. Some projects ONLY support one GPU type. Then you have projects out there that may utilize double precision. Most newer cards aren't so great for that. The older AMD cards had better double precision. However, when you start breaking it down to cost these days, I really don't know what is best there since those older cards really are getting long in the tooth. The 3XXX series cards are awesome at "most" projects. If you aren't trying to have the "top rig", 3070-3080 are probably sweet spots for efficiency but I will let others that have the cards chime in. My best card is a 2080 Super. Your cards will blow these away in performance.I have a bunch of video cards from mining.
