I was wondering what would be the best CPU/GPU Monero/cryptonight miner for MacOS. I have an Intel Core i7 CPU and AMD Radeon 460 GPU.

  • I've compiled previous versions of xmr-stak for macOS, but cut out the GPU part since didn't have a compatible one in system. I'd think current version should compile just as easy. They might even have a pre-compiled version for the mac.

Xmr-stak is one of the best Monero mining programs and you can easily compile it for macOS. All the necessary instructions are here: Compile xmr-stak for macOS.

  • Slight reminder, currently you can't compile on macOS 10.14 (Mojave)! There currently is no CUDA support in 10.14

    If you're interested in Monero mining, you would better take a look at AMD GPUs (so Mac models with them), not Nvidia.

    You can compile it on macOS 10.14 (Mojave) for CPU and AMD GPU mining.
