ccminer-cryptonight reports insanely high hashrate on nvidia gpu

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, ...

Performance comparison of Wolf's open source compared with Claymore's closed source miner

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 ...

How is the Monero network hashrate calculated and how is it different than bitcoin?

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 ...

How does one compare Monero's hashrate with the hash generating power of the world's supercomputers?

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 ...

Which mining of Monero is more cost efficient CPU or GPU?

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 ...

Which mining of Monero is more cost efficient CPU or GPU?

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 ...

Which mining of Monero is more cost efficient CPU or GPU?

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 ...

Performance comparison of Wolf's open source compared with Claymore's closed source miner

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 ...

Pool live tracker showing different hash rate than the miner log

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 ...

ccminer-cryptonight reports insanely high hashrate on nvidia gpu

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 ...

Any ways to increase hashrate?

Quite honestly, mining on a Raspberry Pi is never going to give a good hashrate. The processor just doesn't have enough cache (you need 2MB cache per thread/core) for optimal hashing. You can't even ...

Does the miner program used affect the hashrate?

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 ...

How to calculate how much GPU power to mine 1 coin a day for any cryptocurrency?

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

Do cryptonight hash speeds mirror scrypt and SHA-256 hash speeds?

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, ...

ccminer-cryptonight reports insanely high hashrate on nvidia gpu

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 ...

How much CPU power to mine 1 coin a day?

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. ...
