I am curious as to your opinion behind this statement?
If the reason is because TDP, you can modify any equivalent card to get what you are after.
Before some of you had even heard of Zcash the only card you could/should mine with was a AMD.
My first rig is a seven AMD Fury’s setup that have been running almost nonstop for 10+ months with only one issue that was a manufacture problem.
The AMD cards are easier to configure with ANY of Claymore’s software, no need for afterburner, no need to create a scheduled task to reboot on GPU error, no need for 3rd party programs for constant monitoring, you can set it all right there in the config file.
Currently the only thing AMD lacks is a 1080 TI equivalent.
I have 20+ 1080 / 1080 TI’s, I like the cards (EWBF’s software is great) but I have had to send back 3 of them in the last 5 months due to bad manufacturing. Numbers wise on send backs equal the same but the number in the amount of time is higher.
Again I am curious as to your opinion on why you should not use AMD cards to mine Zcash with.
