In this article, we will talk about building a mining rig using new Nvidia GTX 1070Ti GPU’s — the updated version of GTX 1070. The new model has higher Equihash hashrate and can reach 550 sol/s depending on the manufacturer. Two rigs will be built in this article. Both of them will be used to mine the following coins: Zcash, ZClassic, Zencash, Bitcoin Gold. Continue reading “Building GTX 1070Ti Mining Rig”
