ZOTAC GeForce® GTX 1050 Ti OC Edition is the third graphics card installed on my mining rig.
Bought back in Tbilisi and paid about $220 for this card, see: Buying Graphic Cards (GPU) and Computer Parts in Tbilisi, Georgia. Currently sold on Amazon for about $260 - ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1050 Ti OC Edition 4GB GDDR5 Super Compact Gaming Graphics Card (ZT-P10510B-10L)
Out of the box, this card gives ~12 MH/s in Dual mining mode on SimpleMining OS. I believe with solo mining and little overclocking this card has a potential of 15MH/s for Ethereum mining.
Currently, this card is installed on a mining rig and I noticed following measurements for temperature and fan speed
- 76 Celsius
- 47% Fan speed
In general, I would love to get the temperature below 70 Celsius, as I believe lower temperatures and slower fan speeds extends the total lifetime for graphics cards. On the other hand, the ventilation in the room I'm storing this rig could be much better and in fact, the next big thing I'm planning to add to this rig - a rig frame, probably a DIY project.
Mining Ethereum with ZOTAC GeForce® GTX 1050 Ti OC Edition
As you can see from the picture above, I've in total 4 graphics cards, what is interesting both AMD and NVIDIA cards. The total hash power for this mining rig is ~53 MH/s

Mining Ethereum With ZOTAC GeForce® GTX 1050 Ti OC
ROI for this card with current Ethereum mining difficulty (and not counting in power cost) and the current price would be about 182 days or about 6 months. Which seems reasonable.
