As of late it has been realized that the Ethereum, another biggest Cryptocurrency that exist today, has come to and surpassed Bitcoin as number one in the area of the Cryptocurrency. The issue with Ethereum is that, after some time, it will at no time in the future be productive if the way toward mining the coin is finished with GPUs that have less VRAM, for example, the GeForce GTX 1060 3 GB.

The issue with these graphics cards for mining Cryptocurrency lies in the coin itself, the Ethereum, which executes a lot of data on the GPU so it works with that data while mining. The information put away in the memory of the card utilizing DAG (Directed Acyclic Graph), an equation utilized as a part of arithmetic and computer science. This is one of the significant contrasts that this coin holds with the Bitcoin as far as mining, since the Ethereum was composed so its mining procedure was something memory escalated.

After some time, the quantity of blocks in the chain of Ethereum is growing, at a rate of around 14 or 15 seconds per block, something that will make the memory of GPUs more suffocated by the data it needs to store and process. That is the reason, after some time, every one of the graphics cards that are right now popularized, for example, Radeon RX 470 4GB or GeForce GTX 1060 3GB will be exhausted at the season of doing this process.
