This answer will attempt to answer the question at multiple levels, as follows: Section I explains the basics of how to calculate this yourself. Section II provides updated calculations based on Section I. Section III provides an abstracted way to determine this based only on the total network hashrate and the total number of coins in circulation. Enjoy :) ...

It looks like your hash-rate is calculated in the following code: hashes_done = 0; gettimeofday(&tv_start, NULL); /* scan nonces for a proof-of-work hash */ rc = scanhash_cryptonight(thr_id, work.data, work.target, max_nonce, &hashes_done); /* record scanhash elapsed time */ gettimeofday(&tv_end, NULL); timeval_subtract(&diff, &tv_end,...

I have MSI R9 290X and on stock settings it gives 775H/s with Wolf's miner vs 790H/s with Claymore's miner with fee turned on. With -nofee 1 flag Claymore's miner shows 760H/s. Of course these numbers slightly vary.

Bitcoin uses a different difficulty adjustment algorithm than Monero, which consequently leads to a different estimation of the network hashrate. More specifically, Bitcoin uses a fixed window of 2016 blocks, which should take approximately 2 weeks with 10 minute blocks. After this window the difficulty is retargeted such that, on average, the block time (...

According to https://www.cryptocompare.com/mining/calculator/xmr you need 2910 H/s at the moment to mine 1 XMR per day. Here's a Google doc with a comparison of various hardware (CPU and GPU) for Monero mining: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1E0GqJdLhMmeO5BW3RBcIpftMR_BJhnyUS464ZO_EYGQ/edit?pref=2&pli=1#gid=1 From that you can figure out how ...

Two months ago, Monero core developer smooth said: Monero's mining network is comparable to a low top-10 supercomputer. It's not invulnerable to all attackers but it is a significant amount of security relative to the value of the coin and what could be achieved by attacking it. Over the past two months Monero hashrate has grown about 50%. The worlds top ...

The most efficient way to mine Monero now is using AMD Radeon Vega 56/64 cards. Overclocking the HBM and undervolting the card while runing Cast's XMR miner gives about 2 KH/s for about 150W. An i3 6100T will net you around 60-80 H/s on xmr-stak-cpu optimized by fireice with settings tweaked which is neglegible as most pools pay out at >0.5 XMR.

According to MoneroBenchmarks, the i3-6300 does 150H/s at 65W and the Nvidia 750Ti does around 250H/s at 60W. So, seems that at the same energy expense the GPU card can give you definitely more hash rate. Update: AMD Ryzen CPU and AMD RX 550/560 GPU cards can mine Monero with high hashrate and low power consumption. Also RX570/580 and VEGA cards have nice ...

The NVIDIA 750 Ti returns about 250 H/s with about 60W of energy (hash source, wattage source). I do not have data on the i3-6300T, but the AMD FX 8350 also returns about 250 H/s (source), and this should be a faster processor than the i3-6300T (I'm guessing 150 H/s). The i3-6300T uses about 30W (source). Use the Monero mining calculator here to determine ...

For the RX 470 (specifically the Gigabyte G1 4GB version), I have found that both miners give very similar performance (~542 H/s for Claymore, ~535 H/s Wolf) on Windows 7 SP1. On Linux, Claymore does not distribute a binary compatible with these cards, while Wolf's again gives ~535 H/s. Given that Claymore's miner takes a 2.5% cut, it nets you 542 * 97.5% =...

What your miner reports and what the effective hash rate your pool receives are often different. I'd say 10-30% lower than what your machine reports sounds about right, actually. This is mostly because not every hash your machine produces is accepted by the pool, and so you have a certain threshold of shares that don't get submitted or accepted. The hash ...

The issue is your connection to the pool timed out, it's hashing against a blank ram entry and thus the hash rate is,insane. Look at the connection timed out line, check your pool address:port then try again.

The insanely high hashrates are usually caused by using the wrong driver. tsivs version of this, in particular, is very old and works best with the drivers that existed back when tsiv wrong the software for monero. There are newer forks of tsivs code available, and they address some of these issues. Ah, I see the problem. You are using a GeForce 210. I ...

Different programs do things differently, some faster, some slower, so yes, which miner you use has an impact on your hash rate on the same hardware. The differences are usually minimal for the main contenders though. AFAIK the Minergate miner is javascript, which is going to be slower than something like Wolf's minerd (at least for the CPU miner, since the ...

Simplest would be the following: Daily mining estimate = ((your hashrate) / (network hashrate)) * (current block reward) * (number of blocks in a day)


2

AFAIK, there is strictly no correlation between the hash speed of different hashing algorithms. I guess it can possibly make sense for hardware that are capable of dual mining. But, currently, hardware for SHA-256 & scrypt are ASICs, so they won't work for others hashing algorithms

You can go as low as compute 2.0 cards with xmr-stak x64 2.2.0. I had done so with some old Tesla m2050 and m2070 cards. I haven't tried it with a compute 1.3 or 1.1 card yet. I have one laying around and will report back. Yes, cpuminer opti by wolf is very good. Several forum postings like this exist where the old cards are being revisited with new mining ...

According to mineXMR, you need 58.81 KH/s for 1 XMR per day for their pool. I picked a pool with the greatest aggregate hash rate so that your hashing power is not wasted on unsolved blocks. Difficulty: 30794551795 Network Hash Rate: 256.62 MH/sec Block Found: 8 minutes ago Pool Stats Hash Rate: 60.67 MH/sec Block Found: 6 minutes ago
