Crypto money mining is a method that can be used with various types of processors based on block chain technology and can generate significant amounts of income in the present and future. Bitcoin, Ethereum, Monero and many other crypto coins are being excavated by process power owners all over the world and this leads to the transition to decentralized money system. In this study, the mining performances of 11 different AMD and NVIDIA chipset graphics cards that can be used for Ethereum mining are measured, compared and improved by using various techniques. Improvement in AMD chipset graphics cards has been influential on both power consumption and mining speed. At the NVIDIA side, the same mining speed can be achieved with lower power consumption.
