AMD FirePro Alternatives for Mining Crypto

The crypto market activity has lead to a shortage of GPUs that are typically used for cryptocurrency mining operations. As the price of cryptocurrency increases, the shortage doesn’t show much sign of ending any time soon.

One potential alternative are AMD FirePro cards, which usually have rough equivalent hash rates to their consumer-board cousins.

Some AMD Crypto Mining Examples:

Radeon Pro GPU Model

Equivalent Consumer Board

Estimated Hash Rate

AMD Radeon Pro VII

N/A

Ethereum – ~90MH/s

Radeon Pro W5700

Radeon RX 5700

Ethereum – ~50-60MH/s

Radeon Pro W5500

Radeon RX 5500

Ethereum – ~30MH/s

Mining operators are typically looking for NVIDIA 3060 Ti, RTX 3070, RTX 3080, RTX 3090, AMD RX5700XT. Many crypto mining operators have been branching out from the typical GPUs that have had the highest efficiency ratings for mining, and buying ‘the next best consumer’ cards with the next best efficiency and depleting those markets. These GPUs could provide some relief to operators looking for GPUs for mining operations.
