Slower read speeds with much faster GPU Card



  • I have 2 machines mining and I seem to be getting slower GPU mining read speeds on my rig with the 1060 vs an old 770. The rig with the 770 has a 1st or 2nd gen i5, and the mining rig with the new 1060 has a G4400.

    All drives are connected via sata and optimized. Is my bottleneck the G4400 or the fact that the 1060 is currently plotting and mining and the 770 is just mining?

    Thanks,



  • That depends, are you mining with a gpu assisted miner?

    And yes, currently plotting with a card/drive combination can slow down read times on that particular drive as commands are queued up (read-write-read-write-read-write....) as opposed to just read/read/read/read/read.

    But there could be lots of reasons.



  • Yes GPU assisted miner.

    Not sure what other reasons there could be? Everything is slower on the older computer but (except for the CPU I think old i5 is better than G4400) its getting faster mining.
