Combining two diferent nvidia gpu 4 mining


I want to use gtx 1080 strix with gtx 980 evga to mine zcash in the same rig using sli bridge .
Is this posible and do i need many configurations to set up ?


It’s possible yes. You also don’t need SLI. It will do it without and in fact if I remember correctly it can impede your hashrate.


It’s ok, but you need to configure Afterburner separately for each GPU.


May you direct me for guide for dual gpu mining set up .


I wil look for it . Thanks noobvie


There’s nothing really special required. As long as you have the drivers installed and you’re using a reasonable miner (in this case you’re using nVidia cards so I would suggest EWBF’s CUDA miner), you just have to configure the miner for whichever pool you’re going to use and it will automatically detect both cards.




I want to mine and do some gaming in the same rig using my gtx 1080 only for gaming but when i go for mining i want to utilize my gtx 980 with 1080 .

so if i installed gtx 980 with riser and let my gtx 1080 with normal pcie for better band width, will it work properly and 980 gpu will not interrupt me when i play games.

this is my specs for further info :

i5-3570 k ,motherboard (asrock z77 extreame),8 GB ram kingston ,RM-850 Watt 80 PLUS Gold corsair
