I keep waiting for someone to to create a mining specific card that uses something other than a PCI-E slot, like SATA or USB 3.1. It would be bandwidth restricted, but, in the case of USB, you could attach many more units and cool them more effectively, externally.
Compared to what? A Titan? 470 is enough to run games @1080p with everything but AA pegged. Same as a 960 tbh. Both cards represent the best bang for the buck of last/this year. Till etherium mining took off.
They already have adaptors for that. slot it into a pic connection, goes to USB 3 Back to the card
You missed my point. I'm not talking about an adapter that happens to use a usb cable. I have that already. I'm talking about an actual usb device, probably with more memory than a graphics card and running at higher speeds to compensate for the lower bandwidth link.
