Is there a market for just plotting?

I just spent 5k on a rig that can do 200 plots a day. At that rate I will fill all my storage in 20 days. Is there a market for only plotting? What would you pay for a 10tb storage filled with plots?

I’m interested in your plow machine’s specs.

what your machine? only 5k can plot 200 !!? can share info?

I can do 32 plots in parallel and it plots in 4 hours.

Amazing performance. Do you start all your plots at the same time or stagger at all?

Do you have any screenshots?

Nothing yet I just ordered it. but I copied a friend set up that is getting this production. I should have it next week.

Ok, keep us posted. To answer your original question. Yes some people are plotting as a service. Check our buy sell trade topic to see them all.

There is no way this will produce a plot in 4 hours. A 5950x, which is a faster, newer generation CPU (Zen 3), doesn’t plot a single plot in 4 hours.

Note single core scores: 108, vs 159. That’s how fast a single plot will go. Don’t worry, you’ll generate plenty of plots with this machine indeed, but… 4 hours? Uhhh no. Sorry :wink:


Do you use a 5950x yourself for plotting and how many M.2 you use? how many plots do you do per day? How is a 5950x faster when it only has 16 cores while the TR 2990WX has 32 cores?

Per-thread performance is what determines absolute individual plot times, which is what I was discussing.

Lots of cores is indeed a very good thing – but if those cores are slower cores, they will plot slower. I was just pointing out the absurdity of claiming a 4 hour plot time on that particular CPU. You can barely get a 4 hour plot time with a RAMdisk!

And yes I do have a 5950x system, I have two of them, I’ll have four of them before the week is out.
