Is it normal that a GTX 1080 Ti (core clock over 2 GHz) takes the same time to complete a task compared to a RX 480 4GB?
I have both in my PC with an AMD Ryzen 7 1700 processor (overclocked to 3.9 GHz). They both take 2 minutes to complete a task.

They are different brands so do things differently and MW runs much faster on older hardware than the brand new stuff. For instance my gpu here is an AMD 5870 and does them in about about 105 seconds.

their double precision performance is similar.

RX 480 = roughly 365 GFLOPS FP64

1080 Ti = roughly 368 GFLOPS FP64

Seems about right.

So, a GTX 1080 Ti is useless for this project...

Heck no but if you want pure max credits you will have to go to Collatz and use the optimization codes and you will get a RAC of about 9 to 10 million per day. Whether the Project's worth it or not is entirely up to you though, each does something much different.

Very useless, better send it to me! :D

Asteroids and GPUgrid also do well with Nvidia cards (single precision aka FP32)

The following list is good to compare double precision performance (FP64 column):

I know that the AMD FirePro S9150 gives 2.5 TFlop in Double Precision operations (with just 235 W TDP). Can it be the best solution for M@H?

What are you looking at it? It's the top listed #1 card, lol.

My S9150 is currently putting out approx 756,749 RAC

It has not yet reached it's final max plateau for RAC either, even after roughly 1 month since I set it up running 24/7 it is still gaining RAC: 759,643 today up ~3,000 from yesterday! I need to get another one of these cards :D
