I doubt it - hash rates are so much higher on GPUs with more shaders -

This is pretty nuts - from the time this thread was started a few days ago until now, people have started jacking up prices of R9 280Xs and above, if you can even find them.



I wonder how long it will be before new miners start making runs at R9 270x's - they still offer about 67% higher hash rates than a GTX 780 Ti at less than half the power draw
