Optimal number of threads when mining

As a general rule of thumb: Cryptonight, the PoW hash Monero uses, needs a 2 MB scratchpad in fast memory, so you will want to have all your mining threads able to keep their scratchpad in cache. So ...

Which type of hardware is the most efficient for mining Monero?

In terms of power efficiency, the reigning champ was the Nvidia 750Ti. That GPU will get you 250H/s and use about 30-40W power. For efficiency, that puts it around 6H/s/W. With the optimized ARM64 ...

Which type of hardware is the most efficient for mining Monero?

There are no ASICS yet, and GPUs are about 2-4x faster than CPUs. Monero's PoW algorithm has a large memory requirement that would make it difficult to use an ASIC and less advantageous to use a GPU ...

Optimal number of threads when mining

I played around a bit with using different numbers of threads on different machines, and my best results came from just using half the number of cores on that machine. Here's part of my script to ...

Is there any way to mine using an integrated GPU?

Wolf's GPU miner works with AMD integrated GPUs too. I tested it several months ago. https://twitter.com/hyc_symas/status/695730032291917825 On the A10-4600M each CPU thread got about 50H/s. In my ...

Can I mine with more than one client on a given mining pool?

Nothing special to do if you're pool mining. Most pools just use your address as your "account name" and don't care if one device or 100 are mining to that address. As an example, some miners ...

Which type of hardware is the most efficient for mining Monero?

Monero could be mined by ASIC. The Bitmain Antminer X3 is U$1255, ships Aug. 21-31 2018, and weighs 7 kg, it does 220000 H/s using 465 W +7% (2.27 J/kH +7%) - but they clearly mention: There are ...

Hardware and Monero Mining

The "24-Core" supported by the motherboard you linked to is per-CPU, (e.g., E7-8890 v4 has 24 cores), so per quad-socket motherboard that would be 96 cores. However, these CPUs cost >$7K each yet you ...

Is monero worth mining in 2021?

As others have said, you will likely have higher electricity costs than revenue. A few years back when I tried this, I found that my hash rate was several orders of magnitude below where I would see ...

Cheapest GPU that is possible to mine on

Cheapest GPU is the one you have available. I mean, you can start mining with an integrated GPU like an AMD Radeon HD 7480D and get around 50 H/s. If you want a full list of GPU Benchmarks, feel ...

Mining on Mecer Xtreme S01 PC-On-Stick?

Yes, since Z3735F has x86_64 instruction set. But there is no AES so you will get a very small hash rate, and considering its design, it will probably overheat, so most probably not worth it.

Would this be a good hardware setup for Monero mining?

GPU mining configurations often use the cheapest CPU. Thus, your CPU should be powerful enough to work with 3 Rx 480. Yes, PCIE x 1 should work for mining but you have to buy a riser (recommended to ...

More cores are better for Monero CPU mining?

I would say that it will not automatically mine better. What is important is the cache size of the CPU. You need 2 MB for one thread. Let's say your cache is 4 MB and you have 8 cores, you still can ...

what is my xmr mining capacity

You can try mining with monero-wallet-cli to see your hashrate but I'm pretty sure it will be below 30H/s (a laptop i3 CPU). With this, you'd be getting about 0.006xmr/day. You can estimate mining ...
