    Still seems far to little for the return in my risk-averse opinion.

    Whattomine.com gives $2.42 more like $2 after electricity. A part-time gamer and casual miners would probably never run 24 hours in any day and with one GPU the power overhead of the computer to run it would be far higher.
    But imagine those profits were static $60 per months so IF the profits remained like that for 3 months they might have made back $180 on a $400 card. Not bad, but not great either. Profitability remaining steady is unlike. But then again I had though it would all be over by now but BTC is nearly $45k and ETH is back up to over $3000 so what do I know?

    Big time miners and commercial users might be interested but what is the max PCIe slots they can muster per board even at x1? Maybe 6 or 8? Anyway, that is why the part-time gamer/miner with their one GPU cannot really compete as the overhead of having to run a computer 24/7 is far worse for someone with just one GPU.

    If it can traffic away from the cards that is actually better gaming cards, then sure.

    On the topic of mining on AMD Radeon GPUs, HXL on Twitter has just spotted a Sapphire-made 'RX 570 Duo' ETH mining add-in-card
    that achieves 60MH/s at 125W.

    How do you exactly measure how much watt a graphics card alone use in a system ?

    There are a variety of ways, from putting amp meters on the connectors/adaptors to A:B testing.

    Depends on how accurate you want to be, software like GPU-Z will do it but could be out by tens of watts, measuring total system draw at the wall also works but then you have to workout how much of that is just the GPU. The only way to be 100% accurate is to tap directly into the PCI-E slot and plugs with some sort of measuring hardware.
