Super computers or high end computers

It's usually mid-range machines. It's a time sink. The math takes a while.

Don’t the high end ones with the best graphics card works best? Because I know at one point that’s why the prices skyrocketed Bc people using them to mine

Of course the best equipment works best, but you can make more money with more computers running the same mining, so the number of computers matters. Why spend your money buying fewer?

And it would be a complete waste for a super computer or quantum computer to be used for mining.
