We are looking now at whether GPU Mining can still be profitable in 2018. Some recent news has made people fear for the future of mining in 2018, but as we show below, mining with a GPU is still as profitable as it ever was.
How Profitable is a GPU Mining Rig?
The nice part about GPU mining is that you can check whether what you’re doing is profitable or not, even before buying your GPU. You can simply click on the Bitcoin Mining calculator and decide whether a Mining Rig you’re planning to build is profitable or not.
Selecting a GPU is fairly straight forward. You select a card with a High Hash Rate and a Low Power consumption rate. You then insert your electricity rates in the calculator and check whether your chosen GPU is profitable or not. Remember that, more often than not, it will be profitable, but still be very careful in your choice of GPU and PSU. This is the only part of the endeavour which is risky since a wrong choice here can wreck your entire operation. However, the calculator is very easy to use, and if you use it correctly, you can not go wrong. The truth is hard to believe, but it is there. Very few people mine, but it is a guaranteed profit.
