Discover the best RX 5700 XT graphics cards for mining Ethereum (ETH) and Ethereum Classic (ETC).

 

The RX 5700 XT is one of the best performing mining cards of 2019. We were able to achieve 52 MH/s drawing only 105 Watts per GPU. In 2021 it is likely to remain a top choice for Ethereum mining however there is currently a shortage of stock as both AMD and NVIDIA GPUs are selling out immediately as they hit the shelves.

AusRigs.com have configure 14 RX 5700 XT GPUs over 3 mining rigs running SimpleMiningOS hashing at a total 729 MH/S (Ethereum).

Best AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT - Ethereum Mining

The AusRigs RX5700 rigs holds 14 MSI RX 5700 XT Gaming X graphics cards across 3 rigs running at 52 MH/s and some drawing only 105 Watts per GPU. There has been no BIOS modifications performed on the RX 5700, however overclocking and power tuning was necessary to reduce the power draw and maintain the 52 MH/s hash rate. 

RX 5700 XT Ethereum Hash Rate

Total RX 5700 XT GPUs: 14

Total Rig Power Draw: 1880 Watts

Ethereum Mining Hash Rate: 728 MH/s (52 MH/s per GPU)

Ethereum Mining Software: PhoenixMiner v5.4c

In this setup we are using 5 MSI RX 5700 XT Gaming X graphics cards on 2 of the rigs and 4 MSI RX 5700 XT Gaming X graphics cards on another. The RX 5700 XT graphics cards are the most efficient graphics card for mining and they are lot cheaper than the newer RX 6800 XT which draw more power for only a minor increase in hash rate. The rx 5700 XT provides the most efficent power to hash ratio when mining Ethereum.

AMD RX 5700 XT with no BIOS modifications & SimpleMiningOS overclocking produced 52 MH/s Hash Rate at 105 Watts when Mining Ethereum.

Using SimpleMiningOS as the mining operating system, we were able to achieve 52 MH/s across each RX 5700 XT Graphics Card

THE RX 5700 XT MINING RIG - 5 GRAPHICS CARDS - 260 MH/s

The Asus H370 Mining Master can support up to 13 AMD GPUs (20 in total) but is no longer available to purchase. There are 20 PCIe slots to support USB risers. It's important to note you can only add up to 13 AMD GPUs to the motherboard.

Although the Asus H370 Mining Master motherboard is no longer available, there are equivalent ASUS boards than can be purchased here.

This rig is currently powered by a 1200 Watt Seasonic Platinum Prime PSU.

Core MHz: 1300

Memory MHz: 900

Core undervolt: 750

Memory UV (MVDD): 1300

Memory UV (MVDDCI): 800

Power State: 4

Target Temp: 65

Minimum Fan Speed %: 35

The RX 5700 XT replaces the RX 580 and competes directly with the newer RX 6800 Series.

 

In 2019 the RX 5700 was a very popular choice for mining using almost the same power as an RX 580, but adding an additional 22 MH/s per GPU. 

 

The GPUs used on this rig are: 

There have been no BIOS modifications applied to these graphics cards. Starting from the recommended overclocking and undervolting settings provided by SimpleMiningOS, I was able to acheive 52 MH/s. Manually decreasing the power requirements further, reduced the power draw down to an optimal 105 Watts at 52 MH/s. 

SimpleMiningOS automatically uses the best RX 5700 XT Drivers.

Ethereum Mining Software

Ausrigs.com compared PhoenixMiner v5.4c & Nanominer v3.1.4 CUDA11.1 and found that PhoenixMiner performs the best resulting in an increase of ~3MH/s on the RX 5700 XT GPU vs Nanominer which produced 49MH/s on the RX 5700 XT when mining Ethereum.
