Definitely no free power here. I was trying to use a mining calculator but now there is all these different things like scrypt, x11 and sha-256. I don't even know what one to look at lol.

For Pascals the best algo is equihash and lyra2rev2. The rest either for ASIC miners or AMD cards. In the sense that it can be upwards of 10-100x faster compared to Pascal  mining. It still possible, but you will never make a profit with those directly mining it. Ravencoin is a odd one because it uses X16 which seems to be alright for Pascal GPUs as well as AMD.

I haven't tried the shunt mod with a 1070Ti. I had limited success with a 1080Ti because I didn't want to leave it for long term. If I was better at sodering I would do the wire-hard mod.

I just picked up a 1070ti for playing games.

I mined a little bit of coins a couple years ago but I've been completely out of the loop since then. Is there any point doing some mining with this card right now?

If your power is free than yes, otherwise right now you only mine if you are looking for a long haul. It's still a very Bear market and you will be lucky to break even after power.

I don't remember where I read about it. I first came across it when someone on ebay listed with a screen shot of it showing up as 2 drives. Than I did some digging and found out its a enterprise data drive and never intended to be a boot drive. Maybe Intel fixed it in a firmware update because it has a been a few years since I looked into buying one.


DC 3600  - 2014

Controller: Unknown (Pre Intel)

NAND: Intel 20nm

Sequential Read (up to) 2600 MB/s
Sequential Write (up to) 1700 MB/s
Random Read (100% Span) 450000 IOPS
Random Write (100% Span) 56000 IOPS


750 AIC - Late 2015

Controller: Intel CH29AE41AB0
NAND: Intel 20nm 128Gbit MLC

Sequential Read (up to) 2100 MB/s
Sequential Write (up to) 800 MB/s
Random Read (8GB Span) (up to) 420000 IOPS
Random Write (8GB Span) (up to) 210000 IOPS


DC 3608 - Late 2015

Controller: Intel
NAND: Intel 20nm

Sequential Read (up to) 4500 MB/s
Sequential Write (up to) 2600 MB/s
Random Read (100% Span) 850000 IOPS
Random Write (100% Span) 80000 IOPS


DC 3700 - 2016

Controller: Intel
NAND: Intel 20nm 128Gbit MLC

Sequential Read (up to) 2800 MB/s
Sequential Write (up to) 1900 MB/s
Random Read (100% Span) 460000 IOPS
Random Write (100% Span) 90000 IOPS


It seems like the DC 3600 was a test run. It doesn't use a Intel controller which makes the drive much slower for writes I/O and garbage collection.


Edit: The enterprise drives are all over the price. From what I can tell each series is good for different things, like one has high I/O writes and another higher I/O reads. Only thing for sure is the 3500 is pre NVMe and 3600 was a beta tester of it.
